2.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ok. Here we go. I havenít had the high life since I was 15. And back then it truly
was touted as the "Champagne of Beers". Mostly bottled it held an upper middle class clientel. Back then the three
kings were Bud, High Life and Michelob.
Some of you can relate. Well lets get back to the rating. Pours a deep yellow classic pilsner color with a very white
head. Nose is nasty. Corn galore. Then
all of a sudden you take a sip and lo and
behold a contrast is at large. Light with
a bisquit malt running through. Iím not kidding. Who would have thought. Sure thereís a bit of corn in there. But by golly
this is not a bad brew.

Can @@@ some chill party. Gold with a small head. Spiderwebs, white bread, and success. Candy corn. Taste is light and watery. Vread and corn syrup. Eminently crushable if youíre in the mood. Light body, active carb. Doesnít taste like wolf pussy.

Maybe the best American adjunct lager. No foul tastes, itís drinkable, not my first choice in session beers but nothing to bitch about.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a healthy dose of corn and buttered biscuits with a touch of raw grain. The beer is crystal clear and effervescent with a watery straw, pale hue and a light, airy and foamy white messy head that leaves a thin lace on the glass. The beer is a medium light sweet with a touch of bitter. The watery thin beer has a foamy fizz carbonation, and a light body with flavors of cornbread and biscuit dough. The finish is a light spicy tone with a zip. Itís dry with an aftertaste of cornbread and a touch of lemon.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
From iced bottle. Straw colored. A bit hazy, probably chill haze. Weak light body. Nose is almost nothing. A little bit of alcohol. Mouthfeel is watery. Taste is grass and water. Less offensive than similar swill, but still , yuck.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Light sugar and corn aromas. Pale gold with thin, quickly dissipating head; substantial lacing. A lot of fine carbonation and some light bitterness up front followed by sweet light malt that is overwhelmed by sugar and a hint of corn. Thin mouthfeel bolstered by high carbonation. Short, smooth, cloying finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
32 oz. clear bottle. It pours a nice clear light gold color with a surprisingly lasting frothy white head. The aroma has pale malt, creamed corn, light notes of earthy hops. The flavor is adjunct heavy with more corn, some metallics, and a stronger than expected, earthy unpleasant bitter finish. Not really hoppy by any means, just more bitterness that I normally get from BMC light lagers. Very watery on the palate and ultimately unsatisfying, but not too offensive until the finish. Decent swill, but still swill.

A tad better than bud. Skunkiness abound. Champagne? A skunky champagne at best. Drink cold.

On par with the other BMC flagship brands, although this one does have a slight skunky aspect.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
A regular lager to go along with a meal with friends. Not much to point out as good on a rather simple beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
The champagne of beers? Not likely. Exact same golden colour as piss. No taste. No aroma. No more to say.
