So watery, its the perfect thirst quencher. Lacking any real taste, best served ice cold. The cheapest beer, but worth the price in bulk. Can drink these all day and not get filled up.

This beer is lighter than yellow. It really is more like diluted yellow. So light, this might be the lightest appearance ever. Aroma is totally not beerish, smells of cheap corn and aluminum.

Taste and mouthfeel is just so much water. Super light, even bitter for what it is. There just isn't anything to savor or enjoy. Its a lot of water.

This is a bad beer that defines the American mainstream by lacking any real taste or aroma.
It's understandable that providing a distinct aroma or taste may risk offending a drinker (heck, I simply don't like many brown ales, which often have a definite taste and smell), but as Walter states in The Big Lebowski when critiquing nihilism, "Nihilists! ..[Blank] me. I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos."
