Reminds me of a poor imitation of bud light. Borderline undrinkable. Golden in color with little foam. Taste has a harshness on the palate that seems skunky. Will avoid in the future.

This is a great beer for the pool, refreshing without pretending to be anything other than what it is ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a straw yellow color with a white head. Grain, floral and grass aroma and flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Grass and grain finish.

Gold, ’oily’ pour. Touch of sweet caramel, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Minimal hops. It’s smooth and thirst quenching (I guess?), but not much of an actual beer. I suppose it could’ve been offensively flavoured, which it’s not, so I’ll be kind.

(Tap) clear pale yellow colour with a small white head; aroma of fruit, grain; balanced, neutral flavour, no finish; refreshing if uninspiring

decaturstevo (5947) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2016 Deep gold pour with light white head. Aroma is corn and very light malt. Flavor is medium sweet corn and light floral hops. Light bodied with aggressive carbonation. Had to have it after the commercials. Not bad as far as pale lagers go

LED40 (110) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Not much going on with this one. Golden/yellow color with a reducing white head, faint notes of hops, faint malt, watery with a slightly sweet finish. It’s an industrial bland fizzy lager which is not pretending to be anything else and in the right situation (eating Mexican Cuisine) it is great. Brewed for the masses to knock back cheaply without thought. .
