S: Smells like...lager.

T: Better than I expected actually. Decent lager.

F: Light bodied and smooth.

O: No as bad it sounds. Drinkable but then again, why would you want to drink this one when there are so many amazing beers out there?

Tasted all right on a cruise where only other macros were available.

The second best cheap beer out there besides Coors Banquet. Just an easy drinking beer that has a good taste. Goes down smooth with no nasty bitter taste or nasty aftertaste. I have tried lots of cheap beers for around the same price that were awful. Very hard to drink because of the taste. Where I live I can get a 12 pack for $7 to 9 usually around $8. However its hard to find and only comes in cans. Other people on here have gotten it in glass. Its also great (for me) to bring to parties because the majority of people don't know what it is, won't drink it, and it tastes good (to me). Its one of my go to beers if I can find it in the store.
