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

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 (6265) - 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.

JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 30, 2010
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. Didn’t even notice this... number 1600.

Drjohnrock (841) - 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 don’t know if it really was worth it. Not unpleasant but nothing to attract a retry. Unfortunately, I didn’t encounter the draft version (which apparently isn’t made at a Miller plant) during my Hawaiian vacation. If I’m lucky enough to go back someday and can find the draft version, I’ll revisit this rating.

Ratman197 (15364) - 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.

2.5
3fourths (9358) - 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 aren’t foul, only bland. they obviously aren’t 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.

2.4
bhensonb (15758) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Bottle from Wine and Spirits World in Vacaville. Golden color with a temporary white head. Aroma is mostly grainy. Flavor is mostly grainy, but there is substance. Decent body and light carbonation. Traces of grassiness. Better than many products of the macro brewers.

2.4
marcus (10676) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 7, 2009
This clear yellow beer poured with a fluffy white head and a light malt aroma. It has enough fmalt lavor to be drinkable, but is otherwise unremarkable.

2.4
Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 12, 2009
12oz bottle. Gold pour, much better than the typical pale lager, the head retention isn’t too bad either. Slight sweet malt aroma. A little sweet, no hop character at all, decent drinker.
