A - clear pale weak and clear. Too clear airy loose head and no lacing. Minor continued carbonation.

S - simple corn grain smells. no honey no sweetness.

T - Faint honey aftertaste. But otherwise no much different from an AAL style.

M - fine. Maybe the best part of this bland beer.

D - acceptable but not outstanding in anyway. Besr Served cold and when out of better beers.

Served in a nonic.

A: I have to say, this looks like a nice tall glass of urine. Clear, golden yellow with a short white head that dissipates fast leaving small amounts of lacing.

S: Smells like grass, grain, wheat, citrus

T: Meh, another mediocre light beer, very carbonated, hard to pick up on flavors but it's mostly grassy and wheaty, just another beer.

M: A light bodied beer but it is overcarbonated and it masks the flavors that are already faint to begin with.

O: Well I got a case of this for free from a guy who works at MillerCoors, I'll probably give it away, too me this is like a Budweiser equivalent but I think this tastes a tad bit better but that doesn't say much.

Bottle to mug.
Little head and light on the lace. Nice color, bright and inviting.
Very slight sweet aroma, malty.
Touch of sweetness and low on the hops.
Carbonated well but enjoyably smooth.
I quite enjoyed it, would suggest, good to just sit down and chill out with, not overwhelming.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance:
Clear, pale sunflower color with a thin, white head. Retention is horrible with traces of lacing. Gobs of carbonation.

Aroma:
Dull. Musty wheat with a bit of honey. Mostly musty.

Taste:
Follows the aroma closely, unfortunately. Musty wheat with a decent amount of honey notes. Watery, everything about this screams, "watered down!" Faint citrus is detectable, but it's not able to redeem this one.

Mouthfeel:
It's crisp and extremely light with plenty of carbonation. Surprisingly refreshing if you can endure the taste. Finish is a hair on the dry side, we can chalk that up to the honey though.

Overall:
Not a complete wreck, but it's definitely nothing to write home about. If you're looking for something light for back to back drinking, there are plenty of others out there that offer more character and a more enjoyable experience. I couldn't in good faith recommend this to anyone.
