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

Look - The can looks incredibly cheap, like it was whipped up in Microsoft Paint real quick. The can I was drinking also had a green tab, which was pretty ugly.

Smell - Nothing.

Taste - Nothing. Actual absolute nothing, not even a hint of taste.

Feel - Actually like water. Incredibly thin with almost no carbonation.

Overall - Offensive in its non-substance, but just looking at the package, I knew I wasn't in for a glamorous drink.

Ain't nothing wrong with a little natty light from time to time. Not a bad beer. At least better than what I was lead to believe.

From a can, pours as clear straw color with a white thin foamy and quickly dispursing head. Light aroma like corn flakes cereal, but less distinct. Taste like heavily watered down apple juice that has been sturred about four strokes with a hops leaf. There is much better out there.

Why did I rate it so highly? Because it doesn't hardly taste like anything. Don't drink this to enjoy beer, drink this after you've had 4 or 5 craft beers already and wanna keep the sesh going but gotta stay on budget. If you've got a good palette, other macro brews will taste so bad you'd rather stay sober... but this one is ideal.

Notes of water, more water, and a hint of grains. Highly carbonated, mouthfeel of sparkling water. Hydrates you but keeps your buzz going, and now comes in 36 packs... what's not to love?

Good beer to session drink with your friends. The taste is minimal, but I actually appreciate the little note of malt sweetness. A 15 pack of these cost 30% less than a 12 pack of bud, miller, Coors. Who wouldn't pass that up?

It honestly doesn't get much lower than this. You may as well drink alcohol-laced water if you're going to grab for a Natural Light. The flavor and smell are off-putting and this beer is enjoyed more by alcoholics who need something cheap than someone who wants to enjoy what they're drinking.

L-Light yellow/gold...good clarity...a lot of carbonation bubbles.

S-Corn....lightly fruity like pears and apples....

T-Fruit notes of pears and apples evident here at first too along with a real sweet corn flavor. Corn flavor lingers on the aftertaste.

F-Highly carbonated..thin body even for the light beer category...

O-Not a huge fan of the fruit notes and the corn is a little sweet as well. Not as terrible as I thought after drinking the first one straight from the bottle but not a top example for this style. Definitely would take Mich Golden Light, Mich Light, and Bud Light over this. Busch Light would probably edge it out as well from this family of beers. Just too thin even for a light beer and the flavor is not my thing. Prefer the nutty notes of Bud Light for sure over this.

Ratings are per style with 3 an average light beer.

Not even the ridiculously low price can save this beer from the atrocity that is its taste and especially its horrid smell. This thing just reeks of vomit and regret, and the feel of it is so thin it feels all too much like drinking actual urine. Of course since the price is so low, not THAT much more can be expected, but I think they could still do better than this.

The beer for when you need to stay hydrated more than buzzed.

Water adjunct lager that belongs in red solo cups. Don’t dare drink this if there are other options. One of the few beers that I would drink only if I was playing beer pong and didn’t have good beer.
