A - Pours the brighest transparent yellow I have ever seen from a beer with a two finger bubbly white head. The head disappears within 2 seconds, and the beer has no lacing.

S - Smells of extremely light corn adjunct and some kind of funky sour mash? Smells kind of like a Foster's.

T - For the first time ever, I can honestly say that I have had a beer with absolutely no taste. This beer literally has nothing in the taste department other than extremely slight seltzer water far off into the background.

M - The mouthfeel brings virtually nothing new to the table other than a faint amount of rice adjunct. But overall it remains very flavorless.

O - Overall, this beer wins an award in my opinion. The award for blandest beer I have ever had. They shouldn't even brew this stuff, it actually has less flavor than Bud Light. Luckily, I didn't pay for it, as I had it at a party. The party was definitely some fun after knocking back 10 of these though!

Can into tulip pint.

A vigorous pour yields 3 fluffy white fingers of head. Those three fingers fizzled down to a light film and a collar around the rim after a short time. The film faded, but the rim held on for some time.
Very clear, bright straw-gold. Really fizzy.

Smells lightly grainy with a light bitterness. The taste is pretty dry with a slight sour-mashy grainy tart note.

Watery, thin, light, and highly carbonated. This is pretty much spot on for the style.

Overall-- not a very good beer, even for the style. I didn't know this was brewed by Pabst... Personally I'd rather just have a PBR.
