Not much here. Light on flavor, light on aroma, totally inoffensive. Am I drinking light beer? Back in the day this was a regular, tastes change as we age, I still like it in rotation as a cheaper option.

12 oz. can poured into pilsener
(April 2, 2018 best-by date printed on 12-pack carton and on bottom of can)

L: clear pale yellow, SRM 1-2, pushes up huge thick head of white foam about 1.5 inches tall that's sticky; keeps thick collar and most of a skin; minimal activity in glass, enough to keep the collar but no more than 20-40 bubbles rising at a time, not the 100s some of these AAL carbonation factories can produce (I did give it a very hard pour)

S: dusty yeast, lemon peel, sugar ... the sweetness is bready and almost fruity ... pear; at times the sweetness completely disappears and it smells like lemon juice and yeast

T: yeast candy ... sweet, shockingly so at times, and pretty yeasty; hint of lemon peel, even lighter hint of tarragon

F: light, clean, surprisingly not overly crisp ... I gave it a big pour and robbed it of a ton of carbonation, and it's almost soft, slick

O: right up there with my favorite AALs; this one can get real sweet at times, but yeast notes keep the sweetness in check; the yeast aroma and flavor is clean, not earthy, and never gets too "house paint-like" like some AALs do; I can see this working into my AAL rotation, especially considering the price — it's often the cheapest option and always one of the cheapest options

This stuff is pretty competent. It's not great, but it's not bad either. Light and fizzy, not a whole lot of flavor. Easy to drink. You can do worse, and you can do better too. I think this is the best domestic Inbev product going in the states right now.

Above average bottom shelf AAL. I grew up watching the TV adds for this one during football games. I used to find the "old school" cans in the woods when I was a kid--obviously somebody who used to live nearby was a fan. I'll get this when it's available and priced right.
