This beer tastes like a whisper from an American Adjunct Lager from across a dirty old pool hall. And I don't hate that.

Poured into a Royal Goarge souveneir pint glass.

The color is pale, pale yellow. It's possibly the lightest colored beer out there. I have no evidence to back this up. It's just my initial perception.
Whitish head leaves no trace after 30 seconds.
Highly carbonated, very thin mouthfeel.
The flavor, and I hesitate to use that term, is like someone diluted 4 parts American Adjunct Lager with 1 part club soda.

Will drink again. The price point of this beer is exellent and it's a nice palet cleanser between better beers on an evening where water isn't on the menu. It's also fine for mixing with 1.5 cups of all purpose flour and an egg to make a batter for onion rings. I don't hate this beer as much as I should but even losers need friends. I'll be your friend, Keystone Light.

Very little flavor, basically no nose, light and watery. Well carbonated. Crisp. Unoffensive. Inexpensive. You can do worse, but not much.

My friends brought this for themselves to a tailgate....seriously, just...awful. Splitting hairs as to how to differentiate which of these low enders are worse than others. Don't even bother trying. Awful

24 Oz Can poured into glass
Look - almost translucent, barely yellow colored extremely clear like water. Minimal foam head and a smidge of glass lacing
Smell - basically just corn, corn syrup, yeast. Very sweet.
Taste - similar to Michelob Ultra, get that marshmellow flavor. It's certainly different than Coors Light...but not that much. It's still very light and carbonated with the corn flavor. Extremely sweet and no bitterness. Somewhat drinkable but medium-high carbonation.

Overall, this is 99 cents for a reason, its basically marshmellow flavored water that gives you a buzz. I can't drink much of this stuff, just not good enough. Grade is a C

I guess it goes down easily enough and it's so tasteless as to be inoffensive but also it is hell juice. Has one task and it does it well, sadly that task is just making the floors sticky at frat parties

Good taste and feel. Smooth and goes down easy. Great to kick back a couple after working in the yard. Gives off a nice lace pattern each and every time.

Looks like your typical American light beer. Smell isn't all that great, some off putting aroma, almost "bitter" smelling that I can't quite figure, stale bread..... Taste is better, slightly sweet, more doughy uncooked bread notes (yeast(y)), think stale Hawaiian sweet rolls. Maybe both. It definitely isn't massive on flavor. Not completely offensive, but then again, I am seven stones in now. I don't see how anyone can compare this to Coors Light. It has a different mouthfeel and flavor profile, IMHO. Coors Light is a bit smoother without the pungent nose and has a cleaner taste, albeit more expensive. Just my opinion, not world class but completely unoffensive at less than 8 bucks for 15 brews (local Fl walmart). I could drink these all day. Not a bad job from Coors for a broke ass white boy.
