I think it is unfair for the lowest available rating to be a 1.0. And dishonest. C'mon, can we at least add a 0.5 option if 0.0 is not usable?

Well, as you know.Terrible beer. Gross flavor. Large quantities availabe everywhere at unbeatable prices! Get some!!!

I'm glad this beer is getting the popularity it deserves on BA. Think about why it's being drunk. Advertising, advertising, accessibility. The only reason people drink light American lagers is because it's all they know. "Awwww..brahhh..bud light over miller light anny day." Sound familiar? It's not you right?

Pours crystal clear, and tastes crystal light. By no means is it easy to control a living organism like yeast to do exactly what you want, every single time. For this they get points on appearance.

I'm trying to be objective and rate beer based off of the style, not personal bias. But alas! I can't.
