To this date, this is the only beer that I simply cannot stomach. I think it tastes awful, like burnt grass and straw. The smell is horrible too, like putrid sour mash.
The beer tastes extermely watered down, and has no flavoring what-so-ever. The one I tried didn't even pour like a regular beer, had no head and very little carbonation. If you're watching your calories and drinking "light," you may as well save on taste and have a glass of water.

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.
