Only slightly better than most American macro lights. Pours a pale yellow color with a medium sized white head. Not much aroma to speak of. Taste has a hint of corn and grainy malt; nothing special. There is a skunkiness to the finish. No reason to do this ever again.

Basically a watered down version of Heineken, nothing more nothing less. Really just close to water.

Bottle: Clear gold with a thick, white, foamy head. Skunky, sour grain smell. Stale, skunked, watery, flat grain taste. Terrible, just....terrible.

Pours clear pale yellow out of the can. Lightly carbonated, watery. Not as sweet as Coors, tastes cleaner than Miller or Amstel. Works for me when I want to keep it light, but this is not great.

A forgettable beer with a very light body and light flavor. However i had a few of these in a row while at an outdoor party and they go down easy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear, yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild and has grain and little citrus. Taste has grain. Watery body but has some hints of taste. Nothing much to see here folks.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 A light lager. Enjoyable because you can enjoy a few of them in succession without getting too loaded.

12 oz can. Slightly darker than I would expect. Light golden, crystal clear. Head retention worse than seltzer. Aroma of a little sour corn. Pretty boring. Corn up front with a pretty clean finish. A little sweet for such a light beer. I almost actually wish this was a bottle so the skunk would provide another dimension. Not any good, but could be a lot worse.

Bottle left in my fridge by a friend. Clear yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of malt, water and light hop. Malty flavor with some hop, but mostly water.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 12 ounce bottle at my sister’s house on Easter Sunday (thanks, sis!). Medium gold hue, large white head that quickly split the scene leaving little lacing, sweet and skunky aroma--and this was from a 12 pack that concealed the green bottle, sweet and sour taste. It is what it is and that’s not a pretty picture, even if it is better than regular Heineken. Tasted on March 31, 2013.
