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.

People should be rating this for what it is, not compare it to a double IPA that said it's about what I expected:
Watered down and with no taste or buzz. But if you're drinking a light beer, a good choice given its low price.

ps: Make sure you have it cold.

Look: A very yellow beer that you can see through and oh my, is there carbonation here!
Smell: Not much felt here.
Taste: Some grainy like taste.
Feeling: The carbonation with the look is quite startling and that is about it for the feeling.
Overall: To be honest; I got this beer for free and I can't be all that surprised that it was free. A free drain pour for me, by the way.

I remember when it was advertised as "the beer with the taste for food." Quite possibly because it is so bland and tasteless that it won't fight the flavor of whatever else is on the table.
