2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a regional beer brewed by AB-Inbev intended to be more similar to Miller beers their Budweiser branded product offerings, and is sold in some of the midwestern states where Miller does extremely well percentage of the market wise relative to itís national market percentage. They want to make some inroads among people who love Miller in states that love Miller. Iím told itís very inexpensive where itís sold. This is my first time trying it, because I live on the east coast and they donít sell it here. Pour is a pale yellow with a hint of gold. Aroma is kind of muted and grainy, you know- a light adjunct lager kind of smell. Taste is smooth and refreshing, but not very flavorful- little bit of grain or corn and pale malt with just a kiss of hops. Very watery. Less carbonated or harsh that some offerings in this style and price range. I actually think this would be a good beer to drink on an upset stomach if you really want to drink a beer on an upset stomach, itíd also work as a palette cleanser between beers or with foods where you really want to focus on the taste of the food and beer is secondary. I often tend to think of these light adjunct lagers as sort of beer flavored water, and in that context, they make a bit more sense to me. Hard for them to compete with "real" beer, but if you want water with sort of a bit of beer flavor and coloring and stuff, theyíd hit the spot. Would be nice on a warm summer day. Reminds me a lot of Miller High Life or Miller Lite, not surprisingly, as I think itís intended to be a clone. When youíre drinking cheap beer, sometimes you want something that has a taste, even if itís an off taste, and sometimes you water something that is just really smooth with only a hint of flavor, and I think this falls into the later category. Better than some product offerings like Keystone Light in a similar price range as what Iím told this falls into. They might want to think about expanding it nationally. Obviously, itís nothing that is going to compete with a good IPA, but when I look at it relative to other light beers, I think itís better than the sub-premium lights, and better than Bud Light (Which is considered a premium beer in industry parlance). Similar to Miller Lite or Coors Light in quality, at a cheaper price point (I think, anyway- as mentioned, I havenít actually seen it on a a shelf at a liquor store). I donít know why they wouldnít sell this nationally over stuff like Keystone Light, which seems like a non-beer beverage, or Busch Light (All Busch tastes horrible). Undercutting Miller Lite with a similar but less expensive beer sounds like sound strategy to me.

About what you would expect- light, sweet grain and straw but diluted down to a thin, beer pong/beer bong worthy chugger.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can, bonused by some dillweed :). Pours pale yellow, small fizzy white head, some lacing. Aroma is fear and water. Flavor is water, corn, water. Water. Very light sweet, light bitter, no real flavor going on at all. Weird. Light body, high carbonation.

There are worse things in the world than mass produced gutter beer. This one does have a very faint fruit hint, maybe the people who say apple are right. I donít know really Iím just compelled to write this. I ran out of mine and she said I could have hers, hahahaha!

Terrible sample pour... Thanks for nothing Luke. It smells like dirty water, maltish. No hops... Flavor is dirty and unpleasant. I quit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Max comes through with a sick BMC tick. Pours gold with a white head. Plain and actually relatively clean, with low sweetness and plain grainy notes. Really not that bad with almost no "off" notes.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Maxís. Pours a clear yellow body with no head, some minor light white lacing. Aroma is dirty malts, cereal, corn and plain grass. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated and a touch dry and grainy. Overall, not too offensive.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared in Hoboken - huge thanks to Max for this one. The aroma has some simple dry cereal notes, paper, lemon. Light sweet flavor with some white bread, slight hay, cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with some doughy white bread, minimal bitterness, cereal. Meh.

Draft at a dive in the middle of the midwest. Itís cold, itís gold, itís beer like. For some reason they had the same thing on tap, in bottles and cans, but I couldnít care to taste the others.
