I have been on a macro kick and this one has fond memories from two plus decades ago. I have a close buddy I used to drink this with and he still swears by it.

Looks like super pale ginger ale,, but comparatively flat. Almost no nose, even for light beer. Delivers muted malt and a whiff of hops. It is quaff-able and very cheap. Sometimes you can go home. You want to pound, it's not too bad.

L: Pale yellow, sort of like your piss will be through your first 4 or so cans, since you'll need to drink a lot to get drunk, and you'll be making frequent restroom trips

S: Really nothing going on here, in a good way. No obtrusive scents that sometimes come along for the ride with the cheap, college beers.

T: Again, not much going on here, and again, it's a positive. There's very little hop/corn/anything to hinder speedy consumption, so it goes down smooth. The positive is that it can be pounded quickly because there's little carbonation, and it tastes much less watery than its more commonly purchased Budweiser counterpart.

F: Smooth as fuck.

Overall: A solid cheap beer. Lower ABV so you have to drink more, but it's significantly cheaper than Bud/Rolling Rock/Miller/Coors, and you can pound it easily because of the consistency.

Don't grade based on overall beer type, because this obviously won't compare to your favorite small-batch craft, but that's the point. You don't sip 2 of these over the course of a night, this is a "let's get trashed" kind of beer, and should be judged only in comparison to beers of its kind, of which it is by far the best option.
