Not everyone wants to spend a lot of money when they want to relax with a few beers. When you don't want to spend a lot you are kind of limited at the store, when it comes to cheaper beers you've got your Budweiser, coors, miller, Dos Equis, ect. And as far as those types of beers good this is pretty good. I personally can't stand Budweiser so I decided to try banquets a while back and I really enjoyed them. This is a very drinkable beer with a pale yellow color. Upon pouring it has a light foam head that as many other reviewers have noted dissipates very quickly. The beer itself has an aroma of wheat corn and alcohol. The flavor is very similar, a light corn flavor with an aftertaste of alcohol. It's not bad, I totally reccomend it.

As unappealing as it is to look at or to smell, this is a surprisingly decent beer. It's heavier than most other AAL's but is very drinkable in the simplest of ways. The mouthfeel is creamy with a taste that consists mostly of grain and perhaps a little rye bread. I would only place a 'Gansett above this in terms of AAL's.

Pours clear golden with a small head that reduces immediately leaving a thin collar. Aroma is generic beer, grassy, corn. The taste is smooth, grassy, little hops, sweet yet somewhat dry finish. This is obviously a mega pale lager, but actually this is pretty smooth and refreshing, and i still drink on occasion while up camping. It is what it is.

Backlog. 16 oz can. More flavor than your average macro, but it's an obvious assembly line beer. Flavors of straw and corn are most prominent.

16 oz. can poured into pilsener
(Aug. 28, 2017 best-by date)

L: clear yellow, pushes up over 1-inch tall head of white foam that sticks a little; looks flat by AAL stands, very little activity in glass though it does keep a fluffy white collar of foam and some skin; no major sticking or lacing

S: peach, peach kolache, very sweet and almost bready; hint of house paint

T: sweet grain, slight bread malt, rice ... very clean ... about half a drop of watered-down lemon

F: flat by AAL standards, quite soft though a bit heavier than lightweight ... and all of that's relatively, for it's still basically light and crispy

O: compared to this beer's light brother, it's fantastic ... loads of flavor, a decent enough aroma ... not bad; compared to other AALs, it's no better than slightly above average, though I would love drinking this at a ballgame or other sporting event; its good enough to be in my rotation of drinkers

Pours a clear, golden yellow with about a half finger of white head that vanishes fairly quickly. Smells sweet, malts, and corn. Taste is not too bad, malt heavy with a little sweetness to it, flavor is solid through to finish. Lighter body, clean finish, leaves the tongue a little dry. Overall, not bad, not huge flavor but not a terrible beer either.

American adjunct lager at its best. Nice and refreshing . Fizzy carbonation and subtle creaminess. Slight corny sweet smell . Tastes of corn and sweetness. Very mild hop background. A refreshing libation for a hot day! If you want an AAL. Give this one a try!

To me, this beer is everything that a Coors Light is, except heavier for no reason.

Pours a golden see through color with a white head. Smell is of wheat and corn. And the taste is the same. Mouthfeel is medium for a beer of this style. Overall one of the better BMC beers.

Light straw as expected. Mild head. Lots of bubbles. Grainy corn and wheat aroma. A little metal thrown in there. Flavor follows. Subtle citric, herbal hop. Finished fairly clean with lingering nickel notes. Moderate body and well carbonated. One of the heavier brews in this style. Somewhat drinkable. Ok for what it is.

From the can, it pours a light golden color with a modest head. The head slowly reduces to a thin layer. Grainy scent in the nose. The mouth gets a pleasant light grain taste with little to no aftertaste. Refreshing!

Pours from 473 ml can with tremendous carbonation and a 1 inch head that subsides almost immediately. Smells of grains and corn. Taste has that skunky adjunct hit that is common among these beers. Reminds me of my early drinking days, when I started with OV, Molson Canadian, Labatt Blue. However, this is more refreshing and didn't contain nearly as much of the corny aftertaste that is common with those beers. Extremely drinkable - it disappeared almost too fast. All in all, a somewhat positive experience, considering my general disdain for Molson-Coors. Would get a few of these again to enjoy on a summer day, although better 500ml cans can be obtained for a lower price.
