Pours exactly how you would expect it, straw gold and crystal clear with lost of visible carbonation and a frothy lager head. Faint aroma of corn and white table sugar, with just a hint of crackers. Taste is much the same muted flavors, but there's an odd metallic aftertaste that's kinda off-putting. Light, crisp body, and that's about the best thing I can say about it.

Sampled with 12 other people in a bottom-shelf-beer tasting session. In a blind taste test of this and 7 other cheap beers (mostly american adjunct lagers), the largest number of correct identifications a single person got was 2. I can confidently say that this beer, in addition to being overwhelmingly underwhelming, if not downright offensive, is entirely indistinguishable from most of the other beers with which it competes. Looks like caramel food coloring mixed with water, and the smell and taste are not far off.

This one is a bit difficult to review, but for the sake of beer karma. I will.

Looks, golden with minimal personality. There's not much of a smell. At most I would say dry straw. Taste like watered down carbonated corn juice FRESH OUT THE DAMN CAN. Carbonation is almost soda like. That is all.

Tall tap--haven't had this in awhile

Pours the expected straw-color with a decent head that seems "foamy" or "fizzy" more than "lacy"

Aroma is very subdued but fine. Sweet and sour.

Perhaps I'm grading on a "curve" but for an American adjunct, this is pretty ok. It beats the tar out of others in the same tier (i.e., Bud Light, Miller Lite, etc.). A pretty good mix of "sweet" (the hallmark of this style) and sour. I don't know where the "sour" comes from, because it definitely isn't a "bitter" hops note. It's almost a "lactic" sour that at least helps balance out the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is typically thin--but excellent carbonation makes it pretty drinkable.

Overall, if I was at a sports bar, and there wasn't a "next tier" macro/craft on tap (like a Blue Moon or something) this would be my "go to" light beer. Not bad.

If I could only drink one beer the rest of my life, this would be it.
