12oz clear glass bottle, thanks to Paul & Jamie for this (this was the only non-micro in the box). Dated 07/Dec/15. Shared with raters. Clear golden color. Thin white head, some bits of lace. Decent breadiness to it, mild peppery. Not much else, but not much to complain about honestly. And I barely get any skunk compared to other lagers I’ve had. Some bite to it, kind of rough dryness in the finish. Moderate sweet taste, mild bitter. It got worse as it went. Worth trying once to split, I guess, if you’re a manic completionist.

Bottle shared by Paul and Jamie pour crystal clear light pee yellow with thin white head. Nose corn, adjunct, and urinal. Taste cold and wet. Some crystal malt and adjunct. What do you expect?

Quite a good beer. Easy going down. Flavorful. Would try again good aroma and notrogen foam.

Bottle (a new AB tick thanks to Patrickctenchi). Lactic barley malt and straw aroma. Medium yellow with giant white head. Lightly sweet lemon, barley malt, and straw flavor. Decent - a bit better than the average BMC light beer.

Bottle: Clear gold, with a small white head. Slightly tangy grain malt aroma. Taste also has a slight bite to the grains...nothing wrong with it...just watery and not much flavour. Strongly carbonated....decent enough...(at the lawn mower level)

Draft to taster at the St. Louis brewery. Looks solid; a completely transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of mild grain, hops, and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, but more diluted. Mouthfeel is light-bodied. Inoffensive, but unflavorful.

Draft at the Budweiser brew house . Light drinking session . Watered down beer with nothing special.

This is a regional beer brewed by AB-Inbev intended to be more similar to Miller beers their Budweiser branded product offerings, and is sold in some of the midwestern states where Miller does extremely well percentage of the market wise relative to it’s national market percentage. They want to make some inroads among people who love Miller in states that love Miller. I’m told it’s very inexpensive where it’s sold. This is my first time trying it, because I live on the east coast and they don’t sell it here. Pour is a pale yellow with a hint of gold. Aroma is kind of muted and grainy, you know- a light adjunct lager kind of smell. Taste is smooth and refreshing, but not very flavorful- little bit of grain or corn and pale malt with just a kiss of hops. Very watery. Less carbonated or harsh that some offerings in this style and price range. I actually think this would be a good beer to drink on an upset stomach if you really want to drink a beer on an upset stomach, it’d also work as a palette cleanser between beers or with foods where you really want to focus on the taste of the food and beer is secondary. I often tend to think of these light adjunct lagers as sort of beer flavored water, and in that context, they make a bit more sense to me. Hard for them to compete with "real" beer, but if you want water with sort of a bit of beer flavor and coloring and stuff, they’d hit the spot. Would be nice on a warm summer day. Reminds me a lot of Miller High Life or Miller Lite, not surprisingly, as I think it’s intended to be a clone. When you’re drinking cheap beer, sometimes you want something that has a taste, even if it’s an off taste, and sometimes you water something that is just really smooth with only a hint of flavor, and I think this falls into the later category. Better than some product offerings like Keystone Light in a similar price range as what I’m told this falls into. They might want to think about expanding it nationally. Obviously, it’s nothing that is going to compete with a good IPA, but when I look at it relative to other light beers, I think it’s better than the sub-premium lights, and better than Bud Light (Which is considered a premium beer in industry parlance). Similar to Miller Lite or Coors Light in quality, at a cheaper price point (I think, anyway- as mentioned, I haven’t actually seen it on a a shelf at a liquor store). I don’t know why they wouldn’t sell this nationally over stuff like Keystone Light, which seems like a non-beer beverage, or Busch Light (All Busch tastes horrible). Undercutting Miller Lite with a similar but less expensive beer sounds like sound strategy to me.
