Starting to review some of the "Bottom of the List" beers. This is a loon as it is in the top 15.
A- Poured from the clear 12oz bottle to a pint glass with a crystal clear, pale golden body. A small white, fizzy cap begins to form as I pour but dies down just as fast as it rises. Tiny ring remains for sometime depositing not a single spot of lace. Eventually takes on an apple juice appearance.
S- I would be lying if I said this was putrid because it lacks so much strength that I pick up almost nothing. What I do get is some indescribable aroma that I have never experienced. Corny strangeness. It is slightly fruity and grainy but there is something spoiled about it, not skunk though. Never opens up.
T- Take a bottle of plain seltzer and soak about two kernels of cracked grain in it and this would be a close representation of this beer's flavor. The spoiled/adjunct/BMC light beer (egg-area but not pungent, strange) signature carries over but once again there is almost nothing to work with. Tastes mostly like seltzer to me with the high carbonation. Corn comes on hard towards the bottom half. Of course with warming, the flaws of the flavor and aroma strengthen. Slight malts, fruits and bread with time.
MF- Seltzer with the ever so slightest bit of malt-driven texture. Carbonation is super high and you can even taste that carbonic edge, fizzy.
I guess this is what happens when you strip a beer down to 64 calories and carbonate the hell out of it. Most of the flavor to me honestly is seltzer carbonation and the rest is as if you diluted another light beer half and half with water and added corn. This beer lacks flavor like nothing I have experienced so far, but then again I also got a single of Bud-55. The thing that makes no sense to me is I don't think many people would drink this without getting buzzed in mind. At 2.8% you would consume many of these to get a buzz and the calorie drop is cancelled out, do people forget how to do math after seeing the excessive marketing for such beers.
