(bottle) pale gold with quickly vanishing white head. Grain aroma. Flavor is light grainy malt, a hint of lemon and hops in the finish. Typical mass produced lager.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle picked up for me by my girlfriend at some gas station in St. Louis. Pours a clear pale yellow with almost no head. Aroma is mostly sweet malt and corn. Do I detect rice? Maybe. Taste is the same as aroma. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, nothing really special. I’ve had a lot worse but I’ve definitely had better. With a taste this average, I’ll bet it will be hugely popular.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle from a six-pack purchased at Culinaria in order to make beer cheese soup. Pours a clear, bright gold with an initially finger-thick foamy white head that vanishes relatively quickly. Looks better than its Light brother. Aroma of corn, cereal, sweet and pale malts, and some grass. Not that pleasant. Flavor of corn, sweet cereal, pale malts, crackers, and sugar. Light-bodied, but with more body than expected. Malty, sweet mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Not great or anything, but not bad compared to the Light version and its peers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A clear, golden pour with a white head. The aroma is mostly light grain. The light body has crisp texture with lively carbonation. The taste goes from mildly sweet to mild bitterness, then finishes quick and clean. Pretty decent for a pale lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a crisp clear dark golden with a pretty respectable big white head. So far, so good. Aroma is sweet pale malt and corn grits. Refreshing well balanced sweet malt, boiled grain and buttery flavor, along with a little hop bitterness. Some grassiness as well. This is what a widely produced national macro should (could) taste like for $4.99/ 6-pack. Not a craft brew, but a very good pedestrian beer.

It poured a straw yellow color with a white head. The aroma was grassy and bready with a lightly citric and dry quality. The flavor was very light and grassy with a little bitterness and zesty quality.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour is a bright gold with a large white head. Aroma is ok with some grain a bit of grassy hop. Flavor is more bland grain with some wet paper bag toward the end. Not much in the way of flavor but that makes it easy to drink I guess. Better than and canned swill lager beer.
