Probably tastes better coming up than going down.

Doesn't necessarily taste bad. Just very weak, even as AALs go. Nose is weird and plasticky? I do get a bit of hops on the finish, but not bright flavor - more flat.

Look - perfect watery yellow. Bubbly. Makes you want to drink it.

Smell - nothing / bad like leftover corn

Taste - fizz water, grain, slides past you almost unnoticed, which is what it's going for. refreshing.

Feel - beers like this hit it out of the park with the feel. Tons of bubbles with a little bit of liquid mixed in for good measure.

The way Beer Advocate makes me break down the rating like this I have no choice but to give it a good rating. It looks and feels great, tastes inoffensive. The smell is the only thing that I can actually honestly detract points for.

I could see myself housing quite a few of these- back to back! Great to bring camping as it goes down smooth warm as well. Cheers!

Thick white head. Pale yellow colour.

The smell is very light malted barley and extremely light hops.

Taste is similar.

Body is light and the finish is crisp.

Best enjoyed icy cold.

Virtually indistinguishable from Budweiser. And that's no necessarily a good thing. This may have slightly more lacing and less smell. I can't taste any grains and very mild hops. Watery and highly carbonated. If you want cheap American adjunct lager. Buy a Pabst or Old Milwaukee. Much better than this.
