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)

Pours a clear yellow with a 1 inch foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Looks-wise this one isn't so bad I must say. Smell is of subtle grain, sugar, and metal. There is also a weird fruitiness that I am picking up in the smell. Taste is of sugary water and slight grain flavors. This beer seems to be quite flat with a watery quality in the mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty horrible beer any way you look at it. I am glad I picked up a can to try just so I can further appreciate all the good beer I am able to enjoy.

This beer was purchased in a 30-pack because It was the absolute cheapest beer in the store, and I was a college student just wanting to play drinking games.
A - an extremely pale color similar to watery urine
S - smells like a budwieser after you leave it in a red cup overnight.
T - a very specific watery-metallic taste fills the palate, not resembling typical malt + hops beer in any fashion
M - feels like fizzy soda pop in my mouth
Overall, it's not too offensive to drink, which gives a 1.5, but just barely.

Appearance:Golden yellow with a frothy white head. The head recedes a little too quickly but there's good lacing. However, there is a lack of carbonation that makes it not very inviting.
Smell: Mild coffee smell with a hint of honey.
Taste: Very slight metallic taste followed with a very, very, mild sweet/sour taste. Also a hint of grape.
Mouthfeel: light with pretty good carbonation.
Easy drinking, thirst quenching beer, great for parties if you want to drink a lot (especially for a low price.) Nothing really offensive but nothing good.

I thought this was grape soda when I pulled it out of my boss's cooler.
I gagged and gagged and gagged. Normally I like perrier, but this tasted like perrier and asparagus pee. You know how your pee smells after you eat a ton of asparagus? Thats what this smells and tastes like.
It doesn't even get a full review. It has two saving graces
1. The mouthfeel is like sprite which I LOVE.
2. It has alcohol (possibly unrefined ethonol) so if you drink enough of it you might forget you're drinking Beer30 Light and just choke on your own vomit and die.

Bought this beer as a joke this Thanksgiving. Without a doubt the worst beer I have ever tasted. As a matter of fact, you should try this. Because nothing, and I mean NOTHING, is this gross. One of my friends tried to shotgun one and failed miserably. His dog, who had consumed a fair amount of beer off the floor the previous night, wouldn't touch the spillage.
A: Urine. With some bubbles.
S: Smells stale fresh out of the can. Like a frat house.
T: Tastes like Busch light, but weaker. At the same time, there's a hint of grape. I have no idea how it got there.
M: Really heavily carbonated.
O: Really terrible. Good to know about for bets (worst beer) and party tricks (make someone vomit).

A- Half inch of a fizzy white head on a clear, very pale body. Low head retention properties and no lacing.
S- Not a pleasant smell although I don't know what it is akin too. light lemon zest perhaps.
T- Weird, semi-metallic fruity aftertaste...up until that point not bad at all. Easy drinking besides that.
M- Feels good in the mouth for the style. Medium bodies, high carbonation. Best feature of Beer 30 Light.
D/O- If they could get rid of that off-putting taste at the end of each gulp this could be a winner (read: average). As it stands now, the best thing I took out of this 24 ouncer was a can tick.
