It pours a golden straw color. It is opaque, light passes through easily and you can make out objects on the other side without any difficulty. It poured a good finger inch thick head, but it faded rapidly to nothing, not even a film on the top or a ring around the edge. There is absolutely no lacing at all.
The first then you notice when you smell the beer is a mix of cheap malts of the corn and cereal variety. There is a touch of alcohol to the scent. To be honest the scent reminds me of my dorm room when I was in college... at the end of the year after all the spilled beer has had a time to go stale. The taste is much like the scent, Corn, cereal grains and a slight metallic taste. The metallic taste I'm pretty sure is a result of it coming in an aluminum can, at least I hope so. It reminds me of a beer that's gone stale. The aftertaste also has a metallic taste to it.
This is a medium bodied beer. There is a slight carbonation.
This beer was purchased just for the name of it, kind of like a novelty? We always joke that we think its beer thirty. Of course it didn't hurt we got a 30 pack for under $12.00. When we first tried this beer we had already had a couple of other beers first and didn't think it tasted too bad. Now today as I sit here drinking it on its own without any thing altering the pallet and I have a completely different opinion of this beer. This beer reminds me of something I would have bought in college because it's all I could afford. As a grown man, I don't think I'd buy this beer again, no matter how cheap it was.

As far as cheap beer goes, you cannot go wrong with Beer 30 light. Sometimes when I'm half a 30 rack in I wonder if God himself crafted this delectable beverage. Whenever I'm craving a taste of perfect I pour myself a pint. I have to take a little bit of time to thank my father for exposing me to Beer 30 fourteen years ago. On a drunken post-deerhunting cruise through northern Wisconsin, I pulled into a bar and casually asked the bartender for his finest refreshment under fifty cents. I honestly wasn't expecting much until the color purple hit my taste buds.
Whether you are looking to have a night filled with class or you are drinking to forget, Beer 30 is the only choice. Unless you want to drink a crappy, subpar beer, then stay away from Beer 30. Make sure your expectations are high before cracking a cold one, the sheer shock of unexpected amazingness may kill you.

Originally purchased by a *thrifty* member of my college fraternity for a party, it was deemed unfit for beer-pong beer. Beer30 Light has become the stuff of legends - dark, terrible legends - in our social group.
Appearance - It would do Beer30 Light a disservice to just say "urine," as its color is a shade paler and foamier than that. Phantom urine, perhaps. There is an ethereal quality to the brew that makes one pause before drinking, in respect.
Smell - In my privileged life, I have rarely had occasion to empathize with industrial workers. However, the metallic, poisonous fruit-smell seeping out of the venomous purple cans caused me to briefly consider the life of a chemical plant worker.
Taste - Shit.
Mouthfeel - Didn't you read "Taste?" It's got this incredible carbonation, like a violently-shaken can of cola, that lasts about 6 seconds before it suddenly and abruptly becomes totally flat. The makers of Beer30 Light have somehow created a beer that is actually BREWED stale.
Overall - "When you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." (-Nietzsche)
