Pours a very pale yellow color with almost no head; what little is there dissipates quickly. Smells of almost nothing else besides cereal and light toasty malt. Drinks almost the same; very watery body to the beer. Overall, one of my favorite light lagers because it's VERY easy to drink. But not something I get all the time, as I don't tend to drink light beers all that often. Decent for after a long mowing.

Free palate washer. Smells and tastes like wet farts and metal. Oh well.

Look
Pale and clear. Light golden color. Lots of carbonation. Head dissipates fast.

Smell
Very neutral. Almost nothing there.

Taste
Mild flavor. A little bit of hop brightness. A little bit of sweet malt. Dry finish. Very, very smooth-sipping, neutral beer. Not harsh at all.

Feel
Lots of carbonation. Very light, smooth, and refreshing.

Overall
This is a smooth, refreshing beer. Mild flavor. Balanced and light. A very good summertime option.

Poured into a shaker pint.

Clear light golden color, lots of bubbles, decent white head with retention from nucleated glass.

Smells of wet cereal grains, corn.

Tastes like wet cardboard, cornmeal, slightly metallic.

Feels light and very dry.

Overall, I hate this saying, but it is what it is. Hot day, cold beer, it's fine. Not any worse than anything in it's style.

12oz bottle BB February 2018 poured into a perfect pint glass at fridge temp 3.9% ABV. The color is bright, translucent straw yellow with short lived white head. The perfect pint nucleation is allowing this to keep a ring of head around the glass. Smell is faintly corny, but it could be a defect also as I have reviewed more of these lately and find this aroma is not always present in AAL. Taste is very light with almost no discernible flavor. Vaguely beery, almost like seltzer. Mouthfeel is sharp carbonation, moderate oily/soapy slickness and a touch of bitterness on the end. Overall, ok. I've have so much worse, but I've had better too.

Drank out of a bottle and this had the smell of cereal grains and sour wheat. The taste is pretty watery with a solid grainy wheat taste, the finish is kind of sour.

24 oz. can:

Pours yellow with a fluffy lasting head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of light grain, some cooked corn. Clean. Inoffensive.

The taste is in character of a typical macro light. Buttered corn, some grain, a touch of non-descript hops to balance sweetness. Sweet-leaning, crisp finish.

Pretty refreshing. An inoffensive, inexpensive "lawn-mower" beer.

Aroma and flavor is malts/pale malts/grains and a mix of mild fruit and beery in the finish. A little more redeemable than the American macros, decent.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a clear, pale gold color with a very small white head. The aroma is corn. The taste is mild grain. It is a cheap light lager, but it does well what it is meant to do.
