I actually didn't mind this one at all - was expecting much less based on other reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. Light yellow color with quickly fading head and no lingering lacing. Smells very faintly of corn and malt, but really tough to detect. Tastes of corn, malt, grain and has just a little of that familiar "AAL taste" - but minimal bitterness. Actually quite smooth and refreshing. Mild mouthfeel, good carbonation. Not much too it - easy to drink, light, refreshing.

This is a light beer. It's just as good as miller lite or bud light, or any of the other big dogs. Super crushable and not aweful tasting relative to what it is. I'd drink them at a party for free.

What can I say. I like Busch Light. Goes down smooth and is very refreshing after hot days of yard work. Very crushable and you won’t feel full afterwards. Cheers.

Finally tried this beer during a day at the pool. I consumed 2 of them. There is not much to say about the appearance and aroma -- if you have seen a light beer, you know how this smells and what it looks like. The mouthfeel is super light and there is just a bit of malt sweetness. There is just not much going on at all. It is not offensive, just very lacking. The redeeming quality of it was the light body went down well on a very warm day outside.

Drank from a 12 ounce can. Ratings are based on the style.

Look - The logo is respectable, and the mountain backdrop for everything is fairly pleasing. A good looking can.

Smell - Like a river. Dirty water, plants, fish.

Taste - Sickly sweet, very watery. Tastes like the mountain stream pictured on the can. Doesn't linger in the least bit, the taste disappears instantly.

Feel - Paper thin body with a sparkly carbonation. Like drinking La Croix or similar.

Overall - Don't fall for the siren song of the appealing packaging, this is a real waste of a "beer." If this was my only exposure to beer, I would hate beer.

One finger white, fuzzy head. Dissipates quickly. Straw body, crystal clear, lots of bubbles.
Grainy nose. Corn, white rice, very faint malts.
Hints of beer in the flavor. Slight malts and even less hops.
Grainy and prickly mouth feel from the high carbonation. Extremely light mouth feel.

This beer is so light taste-wise I'm not sure how anyone could really be offended by it, aside from ones sensibilities. I have had worse craft beers.
