May be the best light beer in the world in my opinion or at least the best Iíve ever tried. Iíve been drinking this for years and never got around to rating it. Goes down like a light beer should and very refreshing with more substance & taste than other light beers. Excellent pizza beer or with salt & vinegar potato chips.

Thanks to whoever brought this to my house and forgot it. Youíre a real pal. Canned on August 27, 2013.
Appearance: This is a great looking beer in all honesty. The body is crystal clear with a pale golden hue and the head is tall with good retention. The head settles into a foamy uneven white coating.
Aroma: The aroma pushes to the nose easily, but thereís nothing really to grasp. Some toast is present and a slight grassiness, but nothing pleasant or appealing. Itís just beer.
Taste: Oh boy thatís pretty bad. Water and light toasted slightly sweet malts greet the tongue, mostly water though. Perhaps a slight metallic tinge to this. This is one of the most watery beers Iíve ever had.
Palate: Carbonated water.
Overall: When people I see at work claim this is the only beer they drink, I now know for sure that they donít have the faintest idea of what beer is. This is hardly short of sparkling water. I guess to each their own, but I donít look forward to finding a stray Michelob Ultra in my fridge, how watery will that taste?

Not bad for getting lit up, but as far as an after work relaxation brew, Iím all set. Better than any of the ice beers on the market, so its not without some merit.

Well, I expected a beer as good as Michelob Lager, sadly is not that good, all the features are lower and plain, just a bit watery and a low trace of malt.
