Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance- Pours a light straw color with a surprisingly small fizzy white head. The head fades quite fast leaving very little lacing and a thin layer of foam on the top of the brew.

Smell – The aroma is very light overall, but nothing is really off about it. It consists of a mix of bready, caramel and corn sugar smells.

Taste – The taste begins with a very watery light bready taste with a bit of caramel and corn. The corn grows stronger while the malt and caramel flavors grow weaker. Some flavors of a more paper and metallic flavor hit the tongue toward the middle and the end leaving a very dry and off aftertaste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is very weak and watery with a carbonation level that is slightly on the higher side. Overall pretty appropriate for the style, but noting too exceptional.

Overall – Well… It is considered a frat brew beer for a reason. Cheap, cheap, cheap and not one to go to if you are looking for something with flavor, but if looking to party with and colleged aged then maybe… I'll leave it to others though.

This is what hell tastes like.

Pale, watery, dirty yellow look to this. Could pass as urine easily.

Smells fortunately like nothing. Given what it could smell like, this is a plus.

Tastes like creamed corn, overcooked vegetables, and seltzer water. No hop character. No malt character. Just no character of any sort. A big 0.

Light bodied, sort of crisp mouthfeel, gets real nasty when it warms up.

You could waterboard me with this stuff and I'd probably enjoy it more than drinking it.

Pretty good beer. It's affordable and Light. Doesn't taste much worst than Bud Light. If I was going to buy this or Bud Light I would buy Natural Light there is not much of a difference though Natural Light does have a watered down taste it is not as watery as keystone light and still around the same price.

This beer does not get you drunk unless you drink a 12 pack or something so it is a good beer for kicking back after work.

Has a nice refreshing feel when drinking just like drinking sparkling water.

The taste is easy and pretty smooth.

Overall this is a good macro beer definitely worth trying.
