Tried after Busch light at an anniversary party. This one I actually poured into a plastic cup. Light yellow fizzy beer with bubbles rising steadily. Smell was nigh on nothing. Taste was of light club soda and a little beerishness. Mouthfell also falls flat. Not recommended, ever.

For the sake of experimentation, I'm holding a little tasting of beers I happened to have but would never purchase myself. This is number four and I'm getting pretty sick of it.

This one looks like it's pouring out yellow-white but turns out to be the typical "straw" of most BMC products. The white head that tries to develop never quite does, dropping off more quickly than I've seen in a long time. Absolutely nothing remains. Bubbles are there almost just for fun (I know, people like their BMC nice and carbonated) and do nothing whatsoever for the head.
Apples. A little dust. Grains. One of the lightest aromas ever. Clean? Sure. I'll give it that.
This tastes like apple juice. I'm not joking. I'm only sipping as much of each of these beers as I need to judge them properly, but maybe I'm losing it. Apple juice. Grains. Hey, a little malt backbone...a weak one that can't support much, but something. Only below average instead of bad because there's no particularly offensive aspect and at least it's supposed to be a light.
Super light. Very crisp, even spritzy. Almost smooth. Almost.
