Handwritten notes from 10+ years ago.

Appearance - Clear straw body. Very clear and pale. Very active carbonation in the head. Sounds like a soda more than a beer. Head lasts for a minute then disappears completely. No lace. 3

Smell - Alcohol and musky corn. A little thick and gummy. Very much like a malt liquor. 3

Taste - Stale and musky. Tastes much better straight from the bottle for some reason. Pretty clean. Some faint artificial sweetness, like splenda. Almost flavorless. A more alcoholic Michelob Ultra. 3.5

Mouthfeel - Slight crispness. Leaves faint stick on tongue, but very clean. 3

Overall - The ultimate frat beer. 3

Clearly below average for an adjunct. Smooth, alcoholic, slightly sour. Only drank because it was free. I'd much rather drink a Corona or even a Busch Light over this. Please don't drink this; much better adjuncts exist. If you want the alcohol without other redeeming qualities, then go right ahead.

I think there are far too many opinions due to this beer being the American beer category, but I completely disagree with most of them. It doesn’t taste or smell disgusting like many reviewers say, in fact I truly believe that most of the negative reviews are beer drinkers that typically don’t drink light beers or what they call “adjuncts” but I think this is a fairly decent tasting beer!

Light beers need a different scale. The whole point is hopefully getting the best taste possible along with low cals/carbs. If you can somehow sneak some extra ABV in there, all the better. So this one ticks all of those boxes, and this coming from someone who can't stand Bud Light. The taste here is the typical A-B soapy water, but it isn't offensive, especially cold out of a bottle. No aftertaste, which is good for this style. Also low on gassiness.

Yeah, of course it's far from a quality sipping beer, but in terms of the reasons why light beers exist, it nails them. If you're familiar with another 130 cal, 5 carb, 6.0% ABV beer, let me know! All the light/session IPAs of recent years tend to be about 4.0% ABV, and taste like overly fizzy junk anyway.

It looks ok, smells ok, but tastes of watery corn syrup. I used to be ok with it when it was ice ice cold, thirsty, and wanted some abv. Now I only have one, because it's beer, 130 calories, and 6 abv. All in all a great concept, but this barely hits it in that delivery. In lieu of an Ultra, it works. As to beer to drink for the taste of a good beer, skip it.
