Not a good beer, but reviewers giving this 1s across the board are idiots. 1 for look? 1 for mouthfeel? Idiots.
This beer is half bud light and half malt liquor. Nose and taste are all acceptable by AAL standards. If you are looking for a lawnmowing beer with a little higher ABV, this is a better bet than a 40 of King Cobra.

Not good, no hop flavor at all, smells of grass, taste is very very light, high carbonation, would rather drink water.

An attempt to make bud light better. I think they succeeded. This beer was not bad. I would select it over bud light. If someone handed it to me, I would accept.

12 oz. bottle into a pint glass

A - White frothy head that foams up easily, even with a moderately soft pour. Head dissipates very quickly. Very highly carbonated. Fast rising carbonation easily visible. Beer is clear and pale straw in color. Sides of glass are coated with carbonation bubbles. 3/5

S - Sweet malty aroma is the main note that I am getting followed by some rice. Smells very clean. Not much else going on in this department. 3/5

T - Rice and white bread are the main tasting notes to this beer. Reminds me of rice chex. Sweetness overrides any bitterness to this beer. Slight metallic aftertaste. Cannot pick out any hops in the flavor profile. 2.5/5

M - Very highly carbonated which results in a carbonation burn and tickle on the tongue. 3/5

O - Good beer for a hot day. Best served very cold. Beer opens up a bit when in a glass as compared to straight from the bottle in terms of both flavor and aroma. 2.75/5
