Had this beer a long time ago ( thankfully ) although I figured i'd give it a review based on what I could remember. I actually remember preferring Bud Light over this garbage. Anyway, Poured from a can into a lager glass. Pours a medium yellow with absolutely no head and no lacing whatsoever. Probably the blandest looking beer that I have ever seen. The smell...corn adjnuct. That's it. Literally, THAT is it. At least it smelled like something though I guess. The taste is of the lightest rice I have ever tasted, And perhaps some rotten asparagus?. Terrible. The mouthfeel is just a bunch of fizziness. The mouthfeel actually completely lacks flavors of any sort, Although with this beer, It isn't a bad thing! I'll give it a two simply for getting rid of those flavors!. Overall, This is THE blandest beer that I have ever had. WHY buy this? PBR is just as cheap and actually is pretty good. This beer should be discontinued as the only people who buy it are fake redneck's

Used to drink this back in high school when a 30 pack was $10, haven't touch it in years, big nasty corn wet newspaper aroma and taste.

Okay, the continuation of confessions. In my drinking of Budweiser at friends parties, I have had this on occasion. I consider this to be worse than Bud Light, which is practically water. I wish the macros would get light beer down before I have to worry about my weight.

12-ounce can poured into a shaker pint glass yields a clear pale golden body with streamers of active carbonation and a medium-bubbled cap of white foam.The head retreats quickly into a ring that leaves no lacing on the glass.

What smell there is a bit grainy with a tiny herbal note.

The taste is a bit herbal and sweet with a little tang and a surprisingly dry finish.

The drink is thin-bodied with a tickle of carbonation. Great drinkability in situations where refreshment is the objective and any real flavor or substance a hindrance.

A- pale yellow, almost clear. thin white head that goes away quick and leaves no lace.

S- Neutral, slight malt hints with corn

T- Water and corn with horrible metallic aftertaste

M- Crisp, refreshing, water, water, water

D- As drnkable as water! I think the best method to drink these is to poke a hole in the can and shotgun them. then you actually get a foamy head at the end.
