1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale and fizzy, blah, blah blah. Iím not going to sit and the finer points of this brew as i would an imperial Stout. It is a macro light. Just more gimmicks to sell the same old stuff. Having said that, for the category, it has some strong suits. It has a pleasant crisp (albeit weak) taste without the overbearing adjunct aftertaste found in some. The 6 ABV is nice to have since it is not overbearing.

As a pils from the states this is what I expect. Smooth with little backbite and the alcohol level is higher than std. Bud lite. Nice addition to their beer line.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 Pour from a 12 oz cobalt blue bottle. LIghter shade of pale yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet corn, grain, sour grass. The AB floral hops mix that runs through the Budweiser / Michelob family is also presnet. Not really a pleasant aroma but not vegetal. Taste is sweet grain, corn, with a sour finish, again with the AB hops blend coming out in the end. Actually, not so bad. Re-rating this - actually, pretty good for an IAL (Imperial adjunct lager.)

Like the cobalt blue bottle, should blow up nice when shot in the sun.
This is a good drinking beer for the swill drinkers like me...not bad at all.

No better than the regular bud light... There is still lots of room for improvement!!!

I didnít like this beer. Itís basically bud light with a more alcoholic finish.

The things we do for a beer tick. Pours from bottle a thin white head that leaves no lacing. Not much on the nose. Thin mouthfeel. Super carbonated. I didnít have gas before drinking this but I do know. Has a bit of a citrus thing but it just adds phlegm. No hop or malt influence. Ugh!

It looks yellow, has no head and tastes like Bud Light if you poured Trix cereal into it and then filtered out the soggy bits later. Gag.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Finally saw a single somewhere so what the heck? Pours a clear pale yellow color with a thin fizzy head that fades before I can even judge its color. Aroma of corn, sweet corn and grain. The taste is banana, grass, corn, candied fruits. Thin bodied. Pish, I expect my beers to be quadruple filtered!

Head falls quickly and pour is pale clear yellow. Taste is some possible hops, mild fruits, and straw and slight alcohol aromas. Flavor is smooth alcohol mostly with some sweet ma
