1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
The only one good thing about this beer? It’s very smooth. It has almost no aroma, taste, body ,etc. It seems to me like a very comercial beer, sold in big sport events.

can. pale straw with one finger head. slight sweet corn aroma. extremely watery with some light corn. finishes clean, which isn’t really saying much since it’s basically carbonated water.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hay and cereal earthy aroma with a clear brown appearance. Mildly bitter with a light salty taste. Thin and soft with a mildly bitter finish. Good college beer.

12oz can (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a decent sized head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew did nothing for me.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light, crisp & refreshing with some corn & grain. Not bad especially on a hot day but not something I would seek out again. N/A for a score? Come on RB.

Another good beer I like to drink. After all I am buschman. I’ll just say this...I’ll drink any beer, but I’m a Anheuser-Busch guy and that’s what I pretty much buy.

Can in USA April 2012. Not the worst pale lager I have ever had. But I was not tempted to by another one during my stay.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a straw gold with brilliant clarity. A soapy white head that fell fast and no real lace just a few spots. Nose is light corn and light grain. Thin and a only a hint of green apple and some corn sweetness. Hops are floral and light and go a bit grassy as the beer warms. Taste is clean and has only a mild hint of green apple, and DMS. NO diacetyl and this finishes with a bit of grass and hop bitter. No real fruitiness and a crisp carbonation. Balance between malt and hops was practically even and only during warming did the hops emerge. There was a touch of light acidity in the finish and this finished mostly dry but with a touch of sugary taste at the very end. Mouthfeel is thin and pleasant and a bit watery.
It’s got less of an apple taste than some other beers I have rated but a thinner body overall. The DMS was in acceptable limits and this beer had only a bit of sourness to creep on to the palate as it warmed.
Style notes - the standard lager can have little to no malt aroma, fast fallihg head, light body from the use of adjunct and DMS is allowed in low levels. The dms did creep on to the palate in sufficient amounts to keep from wanting another one of these. BUT the green apple sweetness was less than some other beers like molson canadian an d even heineken so I teetered between 2.75 and 3.0 for a taste rating. I gave it the lower rating because I do nto want another.
