zapach lekki, dość przyjemny - zioła z chmielu i lekkie mleko/śmietanka. kolor złoty, przejrzysty, piana mierna. w smaku pełne, bardzo karmelowe, lekko palone. da się wyczuć posmak śmietany co ciekawie łączy się ze słodyczą i karmelowością. goryczka niska, ale dość przyjemna. trochę zbyt nasycone

Pours pale yellow with a bobbly white head. Corn and some bready malt in the nose and flavor. Quite bland.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Bottle from Valley Farm. Medium golden in color. Sweet grain aroma. Some corn as well. Crisp and grainy. Decent lager. Kind of reminds me of Lucky from the 90ís.

CelticBrew (752) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Had original beer "Eh, brah, I got beer in my ear..", poured golden and formed huge white foamy head. Aroma of malted corn, light ocean water hops. Flavour much of the same, ends sweet, yet quaffably fresh. Too much will give you a tremendous headache. About $3.99 a sixer, as I recall.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2010
22oz bottle for $1.95. Nice. Nose is corny, lightly sweet, some sugar, grain. Just rather sweet and pale lagery. Almost like a different PBR in a sense. Pours golden, thin head leaves quickly. Flavor has corn, grainy malt, sweetness, light crispness in the finish. Not much flavor, standard Miller product flavors here. Thin light body, crisp, thirst quenching. It is what it is. I am not morally opposed to pale lager so my rating might be a little high, but it when looked at within style guidelines it was not that bad really.

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.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2010
22 ounce bottle from Safeway in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii. Medium golden color, grainy aroma reminiscent of old time regional lagers, very foamy slighty off-white head, sweet flavor with slight soapiness, not much trace of hops. I broke my boycott of all beers brewed by Miller to try this beer and I donít know if it really was worth it. Not unpleasant but nothing to attract a retry. Unfortunately, I didnít encounter the draft version (which apparently isnít made at a Miller plant) during my Hawaiian vacation. If Iím lucky enough to go back someday and can find the draft version, Iíll revisit this rating.

Ratman197 (9652) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread, corn, light straw and a hint of spicy hops. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and hints of citrus and spicy hops with a crisp finish.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2014
An adjunct pale lager indistinguishable from most. Rice cake / saccharine in the nose with some calcium carbonate (Alka Seltzer) and mild honeyish notes. Light body, rough malt and equally rough carbonation. Sweet, low bitterness, medium+ acid. They claim cane sugar is involved but it adds nothing discernible. The aroma and flavor arenít foul, only bland. they obviously arenít going for anything special with this beer, just a light lager made for the brand loyal. From can, complimentary, on Hawaiian Airlines cruising at 40,000 feet.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2009
12oz bottle from bevmo mission valley. Pours a medium golden color with a fluffy white head. Nose and flavor had a little extra sugary sweetness from the can sugar, decent lager.
