Very pale yellow to an almost watery appearance the head is very thin and very weak.

The scent was virtually nondescript. Tinny, metallic barley like malts. No hops or even a corny adjunct aroma.

The taste followed the nose with a strong metal or tin malt flavor. I tend to enjoy a light crisp corn adjunct flavor once in a while but this actually possessed none of that. The tinnieness follows on the tongue as the feel never lives up to clean crispness that should be there.

The color was a pale yellow with a nice frothy head. There is a consistent taste due to the use of consistent water type, but the taste isn't that great. Tasted like corn yet the beer is made with mostly rice and was quite bland. The beer taste bitter if poured wrong.

The appearance was a pale light yellow/clear beer. The aroma was a little bit sweet but just smelled like normal beer and nothing too special. I was surprised with the taste because it was not as good as I thought it would have been. It kind of had a grainy/corn taste to it. Overall I thought the beer was mediocre and i would buy bud light over it.
