look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

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.

This is horrific beer. Tastes like piss water. Won't buy it again and won't drink it if given to me for free...

Can, best before June 19th 2017

A: Light golden straw, thick fizzy white head that dissipates quickly.

S: Corn bread, banana, sweet grains, slight grassiness rounds out the aroma.

T: Corn bread, clean water, slightest grassy hop bitterness, semi dry finish with a lingering grainy flavor.

M: Light, smooth body. Soft carbonation. Super crushable.

O: One of the best in the style imo.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Look - Poured from a tallboy can, crystal clear yellow, a finger of quickly dissolving white head, loads of carbonation.
Smell - Cornmeal, mineral water, slightly acidic
Taste - Corn grits, thin biscuity malt, good amount of sweetness balanced by subdued hops, very very faint grassy notes. Finishes on the dryer side.
Feel - Light body, loads of carbonation, crisp, dry. Everything you'd want in a lager like this.

Overall - One of my favorites for the style so far. Second only to High Life. Cheap, tasty and refreshing.
