Sixer nabbed at a Sam's Club in Colorado:

Innocuous fare with obvious corn adjunct flavour. Crisp and not unrefreshing, though it is a biteen drier than I expected of an adjunct lager. 6-row, corn, and...well, that's really it. Quite a simple beer though it's not really balanced in spite of only shouldering a couple different flavours.

No overt hop flavour. No yeast flavour (to style). Doesn't drink as clean as it should, which is my main issue with it, but it's not off-flavour ridden.

Has more body than your typical mainstream adjunct lager, part of which is artificially achieved via overcarbonation.

Not a great beer, but it's drinkable. I wouldn't buy it again, but it's pretty inoffensive compared to some of the beers in this category. It's worth noting that it's neither watery nor syrupy like many budget lagers. Pretty forgettable.

I guess if you need a light, cold adjunct beer-like substance. This is one.

Short and simple, looks, tastes, smells, and feels right between Miller Lite and Coors Original. The thing is, I kind of like Coors O and see no point in buying this over it. Let's not lie folks, it looks as an AAL, so knocking points for that is a joke. Aside from the near non existent flavor and aroma, the biggest down fall for this beer is the exceptionally dry character that leaves you nearly parched. But maybe that is the intention...to demand constant consumption. Cheers!

From notes taken 01/22/17:

The quintessential clear straw-gold with foamy bright white head, lower retention. Weakest beer aroma I have yet to encounter, to my recollection. A little bread, grass, lemon, honey, almost too weak to say. That’s okay, weak certainly beats unpleasant. Palate, though considerably more tart, isn’t much different, fairly weak though I’ve had weaker, but not altogether unpleasant in spite of its lack of character. Bready aftertaste might be the best thing about this beer. Light-bodied but approaching medium, extra sudsy, each sip seems about 75% CO2.

The usual faint straw yellow weak pour with lots of water and carbonation, under average retention of the 1/3" head. Aroma was cooked corn in the can.

Metallic for being so watery, bitterness was up there, go big alpha acid long hop boil! Bag of cereal, corn pops mouthfeel. Corn syrup in small proportion.

Total under impressed lawnmower beer at a premium price, pass. . .

One of the better pale lagers I’ve tried, cereal in nature, but smooth and mild, and tastes really good. Surprised, but pleasantly so. Cereal grains mainly in aroma and taste, Mouthfeel is light, but not watery. Refreshing, and easy to drink.
