look: 2.75 | smell: 1.25 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.75

A: The appearance is typical. A pale straw color with a pop pop fizzy coca-cola head that deteriorates pretty fast.

S: Faint malts, cooked vegetable smell, no hop spiciness/grassy smell. Pretty offensive.

T: Just plain distasteful, all I can get is faint barley malts, some of that beechwood taste... I guess. A LOT of carbonation, and so as the cooked vegetable corn adjunct, pretty nasty.

M: Pretty watery but it's heaviness is from the corn adjuncts I believe. Light mouthfeel as this beer is easy to slam down on a hot day, just make sure it's ice cold. Nonetheless, it has all the traits of Bud light, just more corny/malty taste.

O: Just a typical American adjunct lager that is meant for people to slam on a hot day after maybe some lawn work or whatever. But if you're expecting complexity and enjoyment, turn somewhere else.
