My endless battle with gas stations, poor impulse control and depression have led to two 25oz cans of this sitting in my fridge after a bad day at work and a stop to fill the tank. dumped it into a teku so i can be ironic to myself, a stream of yellow, almost unhealthy piss looking beer came down. a big fluffy white head formed and instantly sizzled off. the aroma of a regular bud filled the area, but much sweeter. taste was exactly that, regular budweiser biscuit/water flavor but with a smack of sweetness and none of the earthy notes. it's still light on flavor and heavy on carbonation so it goes down refreshingly. considering my other consideration was a milwaukee's best i think i made an okay bad decision.

Superior light beer. Does not lack flavor and has an extremely crisp and clean finish

25 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 8/24/2017. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery finish. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.3%. Overall this is a good light lager. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Tastes like a more flavorful version of Bud Light/Regular. Supposedly all malt, and it's noticeable. Clean malts and solid earthy hop balance for the style. Definitely one of the best macro light lagers I've had. A nicely enjoyable offering, and great style example.

I bought a six-pack of this on my honeymoon, which I drank along with the near-case of leftover champagne. Enough said. Hard to find recently. I would buy it again, though.

I think people just have not given it a chance, also confusion of the select 55 which is nasty.
However select is smoother and less after taste. I love this beer and I don't think it's getting the attention it deserves.

Listen...it's not the greatest but I like a light beer on occasion where I can drink 2-3 and not feel full or in the early stages of wanting to take a nap. On a hot Summer day it's refreshing...and there's nothing wrong with that.
