The best thing about htis beer is itís beautiful pale golden color. Light, gritty underflavor like sandy or dust. Can taste a little exotic fruit in the aroma, but all-in-all itís rather bland. As others have said, just one short step up from the industrial pale lagers like Budweiser. Slakes thirst, does not quench appetite for a quality drinking experience.

Clear golden with a medium off white head. Malty aroma with hints of grassy hops. Flavour came out fairly dry with grassy hops and malty notes. Finished dry mild bitter. Clean.

Bottle. Pours yellow with a white head...Aroma is pale lager with hint of pepper and citrus. Flavor is like a light lager but no gross aftertaste. This is what it is...better than macro pale lagers.

Tony shared a bottle of this beer iíve never heard at Oldsmar Tap House. Thanks! i thought this would be an interesting beer to try. I love how nowhere on this bottle it notifies you that its a miller coors product. anyway this beer blows. pours a light golden with a lightbeer head. aroma has a bit of spices to it. maybe some pepper. not much else. taste sucks, malty rice patty, its a mess. no mouthfeel. Donít drink this.

Clear yellow pour, fizzy white head. Grain, sweetness, light fruit, and a touch of hops. Very light and non offensive. Actually not terrible, just really easy drinking. Didnít even notice this... number 1600.

Golden in color, clear with a thick fluffy head. Served ice cold this was that beer you drink after a super hot day at the beach. Lots of malt lager flavor little hops and light flavors all around. Nothing special just a good cold need that beer.

As long as Im rating the shittiest beer I can find in the dredges of my fridge, Ill submit this story to the Midnight Society: Imagine a beer with a floating head of a dead polynesian pedophile on its label and think to yourself "well it cant get much worse from here". I would rather be hit over the head with a bottle of this junk than have to have it mysteriously appear in my fridge. Please. Family, stop with the care packages. I can find good beer on my own.
