look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz can with a born on date. Poured into chilled glass

A: Extremely clear and yellow-ish beer, with no head and little lacing.

S: Nothing here.

T: No hops or real overwhelming taste. Very light and dry, with a faint malt taste.

M: Light carbonation, and with decent crisp aftertaste

O: People kill this beer, but it is what it is - an extremely cheap beer that is good in situations where you want something consistent and reliable. Not a great beer, but for the value, I think is right on the mark.
