Ah natty, unbeatable at $8 a case. Basically water, with a slight amount of flavor from rice and weak grains. Only redeeming factors are lots of carbonation and the price tag. The 8 people that listed this in their "got" section for beer trading should be shot.

Left over from Memorial Day weekend. 30-pack cans for $10, sometimes quality is sacrificed for quantity.

Appearance: Poured from the can into a pilsner glass. The beer is a pale gold. A frothy head that has no staying power forms then falls in on itself until it is just a ring around the glass.

Smell: Knowing AB's propensity to use rice as an adjunct, I am somewhat surprized that this one has some corny adjunct scent. Although I don't really smell anything until the beer is half consumed and has warmed a little.

Taste: When it is nice and cold (near freezing), it is blissfully bland, which is also the best (and only way) to consume this beer. If it has warmed by sitting in the sun (a 95+ degree sun so hot that no coozie really helps) this is instant drain pour foul.

Mouthfeel: Light and watery, yet well carbonated. Kinda soda like.

Drinkability: As stated, when this is kept cold on ice, and consumed at a fairly quick pace, this is ok. Let one warm a little, well, its best to just pour it out and get another.
