Served from a bottle right to my mouth...
A: I did not pour this in a glass. I was at a social function and this was offered. The bottle is average. I felt because I was drinking an Amstel Light, I was drinking the higher end light beer and that my host had great beer taste. I was wrong.
S: Skunky. I literally smelled the carbonation. Lacked a pleasurable scent
T: There was a lack of taste. Very weak bitterness, texture, and all round flavor.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation overload. I did not care for this. Watery tongue feel. Many traits of a cheap beer here.
Overall: I hate to rip on this beer. It is pricey and I know that the host of this party meant well. I can see why light beer drinkers like this beer. It is not the worst. I've certainly had better light beers. Note: I rarely drink light beers. When I have one, it is due to situations like this where it was all that was offered.
To sum it up. Not the best but better than a handful.

330 ml can served cold into a glass.
Appearance- fairly rich golden color, with a nice helping of two and a half fingers of head. This dissipates quickly however. Significant amount of bubbles in the see through beer.
Smell - slightly metallic, and other than that some mild adjunct aromas especially corn and nothing else to speak of. Fortunately nothing off putting either.
Taste- very bland, reminiscent of tonic water with a few adjuncts in there. Bland even by light beer standards. However nothing weird tasting that would give this an even lower score.
Mouthfeel - moderately high carbonation, dry finish in the mouth. Works well with the fizzy water flavor.
Overall - a little more flavor and this could be considered a pretty decent light beer, unfortunately this is extremely bland and water will quench the thirst better. Fortunately enough, there's nothing awful about it either meaning, it serves it's purpose well enough.
