Super light color yellow, and it even has a little turbidity for something with so much water, usually Bud products are professional grade clarity, but not here. Sweet corn smell. Really lacking any beer qualities.

Taste was mostly water, but the alcohol was too big for what it is. Thin corn fed body, can't really discuss hops in this beer. I can't really figure out what the target demographic for this beer is. It doesn't make sense in terms of its continual existence.
