12 bottle into a pint. Clear, thin golden hue, crisp white divides shine through the appearance. Taste is striaght corn, tangy sweet malt, good carbination though, not that dreadful of a brew. the malt punch packs a good deal of clarity to where this is going, but from there the tread falls short. Bland after taste, no compelling malt bite, substandard overall presence, but so much more intriguing that alot of the macros. Not so bad.....

Pours clear gold with a whipped white head. Corn malt aroma. Sweet malt flavour... Basic...a better than average light. Slightly enhanced rate due to the fact that in my teen years...errr, when I was 21....I drank a truckload of these....Hey! This was premium stuff in the early 80’s!

Nothing special but a beer that us super easy to drink. If you are looking for the buzz, you'll need quite a few if these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Whats the difference between this and Ultra? Is there really a need for more than one of these awful "beers". ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. No need to pour it. No aroma, nothing exciting but smooth and easy to drink.

06.08.2012. 0,33l Bottle. Memphis TN. Pale yellow colour with white head. Low on both flavours and aroma. Very little of everything. Grassy faint hobs. Refreshing when ice cold like a glas of water!

I don’t know, I still like this beer for some strange reason. I didn’t know that they still made it. Typical macro light beer, nothing more.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Clear pale yellow pour with a white head. Bland, tasteless, odorless (save a touch of skunkiness), and very thin. I expected no more from this.

6 pack from the local walmart for a cheap attempt to drown out a tough day on the railroad. I had only two but both were more enjoyable than the average light beer. Pale yellow, well balanced bitterness. Enough grassy hops to be noticeable. Typical water body. Perhaps the best of the light beers???
