This is an ephemeral nectar which transports one to a dark carpeted room, with pounding bass and blacklight posters, surrounded by aspiring date rapists.

The perfect beer on a hot summer day down south fishing on the big water. Nothing is better. You can pound this stuff ice cold all day long and it
sure beats the hell out of plain ole water! Aiyeeeee!

Really overly carbobated. Musty flavor and almost stale aftertaste. Very light and easy to drink except for the excessive carbonation. Overall not a bad choice for bottom dollar beer, but would not expect to see this in a glass or drank with dinner. More useful for drinking games and large parties, but most of you probably know that already.

Poor people's Michelob Ultra.

Almost no color, over compensation the the carbonation to make up for the lack of foam, and almost no taste. Ah well, not terrible nonetheless. Still a lot more flavor than Michelob, so I won't be too harsh.

Absolutely disgusting. This is one of the beers that made Europeans laugh at us for decades. It's understandable why they mocked our beers. This beer is best described as mixing water with rubbing alcohol. It is an embarrassment to beer making. If you are drinking this "beer", it should be motivation enough to desire a higher pay grade. Friends don't serve this to friends.

One of the ingredients in this is corn. Freaking corn. No. Just no. Beer should never have corn in it ***throws up***.

25 Oz Can poured into glass
Look - clear color with a yellow tint, almost like ginger ale with lots of small bubbles. Small white foam head.
Smell - Very musty. Like a basement or an old car. Some sweetness.
Taste - extremely light, almost like a flavored water. Highly carbonated and moderately sweet. Taste is stale corn and marshmallows. Tap Water. I would say it's easy to drink but it's so fizzy that i keep burping.

Overall, I don't know why anyone would buy this. It's not remarkably worse than other mainstream light beers but there are some better options including Coors Light or Miller Lite. Grade is a C-

Very pale golden straw like appearence with lots of carbonation. Had a few fingers of a very loudly crackling head that slowly drops off.

Smell is light but sweet and a bit grainy. Smells almost like a cream corn odor to it.

Taste is fizzy sweet.

Mouth is very light with a crisp finish to it.

This thing was like one of the lightest light beers I have ever sampled. Some of these are very watery with a bit of beer flavor. In this one I was picking up a bit of sweet and that was it!. No barley, grains, malt, hops or any of that! A very odd one to rate. Most light beers would be good for hot weather or for those that do not like the stronger beer flavors. This one just has a bit of sweet fizz to it with 4.2% alcohol. So if that sounds good try it.

12oz can bb 12/13/18 poured into a vintage footed Busch glass at fridge temp 4.2% ABV. The beer pours bright pale straw yellow with nearly white head. The head recedes to a film and ring around the glass. The aroma is very faint with traces of grain and yeast. The taste is nearly nuetral throughout with only the faintest hint of grain leading to a tart unhopped finish. Mouthfeel is thin bodied, well carbonated and undry in the finish. The oily, soapy film and aftertaste confirm this beer could have stood a few more days of fermentation. Overall, average. I've had better and worse in the category.

Not good - pale yellow color, fizzy but no lingering head or lacing. Smells faintly of corn and malt. Tastes of corn, grain, bread and malt but way too sweet and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel, decent carbonation. Could not finish.
