I might be one of the older people on this site. I remember when you couldn’t get this beer in the Midwest. Remember ’Smokey and The Bandit’? Once we could get it, I couldn’t see what all the fuss was about. I would pick Budweiser or Miller over this macrobrew

My two siblings each had weddings out in Wyoming recently and the main featured beers were Miller Lite and Coors. Lucky me. If you work hard you can discern some sweetish, fruity, relatively gross flavor in this stuff.

Looks good, but the beer is bland. No taste. A bit sweet.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is nil. Flavor is moderately sweet. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Sugary sweet.

Not great but drinkable I guess. Take it over a Bud.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2005 A step up from Bud, but as all know by know, that damns with faint praise. But I can actually detect the corn and rice notes in this one, whereas Bud didn’t give me squat to detect. (Got this in a $.99 24 oz single. Say, for macroswill, isn’t that a ’good’ deal? Works out to $2.97 for a 6-pack’s worth of summertime liquid refreshment.)

Along with Bud - just yuck! Too much carbonation - if I’m drinking a light beer its because its a hot summers day or with Mexican food or after a round of golf - this stuff just goes down nasty. Turn to Corona to if you need a mainstream light beer.
