This is another underrated affordable beer. I mean seriously, its clear and crisp and made for a college dorm. It goes down super fast and was always perfect for beer bonging. Like most beers its taste is better in a bottle than can. It is pretty weak so to get buzzed for a big man it takes a lot. Drinking 30 stones could be an all night endeavor.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear gold color with a small white head. The aro.a is light wheat. The taste matches the nose. A weak beer made for session drinking.

I'm not going to get into a lengthy review over this stuff but all things considered of it being a macro light that you can pick up a 15 pack for 7.99 I gotta say this is the best shitty beer I've ever tried.

Basically hop tea. While definitely far from offensive, it has nothing going for it. Clear and completely the same lookwise as Ginger ale. One of the ugliest beers I've seen. No head retention. Has less froth than a soda pop. Keep it in the can. Smells Of slightly stale wheat and filtered booze. The taste funnily enough is about the best part. Completely unnofesive. Even more extremely filtered hop and wheat notes, but not much is there. The feel is awful, with somewhere in between soda and water. It is actually a lot lighter and thinner than soda and just as carbonated. Which leads to it feeling flat after being opened for roughly 10 minutes.

It's a cheap beer when you want a beer. It's not so bad. Find myself repeatedly going back to this one. Give it a try. I don't buy craft beer anyway. Too expensive.

Very clear light golden color. Lots of carbonation visible. Two fingers of crackling white head that quickly drops.

Smell is very watery and like light bread.

Taste is like an old cereal left outside for a while.

Mouth is thankfully light.

Overall I picked up two big cans for me and the wife. The serious reason was to add another beer review to my belt. i just have to be happy that I swallowed this stuff. This is seriously one of the worst light macro lagers out there.

Pours a very watery gold. Light head with no retention. Dissipates almost immediately upon pour. No lacing. Smells of corn and rice. Tastes almost the same, but VERY watered down. Not much flavor, but a light maltiness that seems to linger forever. Not the worst produced macro-brewed AAL, but you could certainly be doing better with just about anything else.

Backlog.
12 oz can. I’m so surprised this got a better ranking than Coors Light. I’ve always heard that Keystone is the product that doesn’t pass Coors’ standards. It had better head retention and seemed to have more carbonation. Still, this is more macro swill.
