12 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. this beer pours like lightly straw colored water. very clear and without much color. lots of head though, which is white and frothy. dissipates quickly leaving no lacings behind.
smells watered down, but with notes of sweet pale malts, and a touch of hops. a floral yeast aroma is also present, but only in the background.
taste is very watered down, with faint notes synonomous with the aroma. nothing good here, just watered down flavors. usually a beer this light would be refreshing, but the lack of concentration here negates even that.
aftertaste is not present. resembles the aftertaste of bottled water.
mouthfeel is light-bodied, without much character. watery on the palate, with a light bite from carbonation.
drinkability is supurb, for obvious reasons. there is not much good to say about this beer. if a drinker is looking for a very thin brew that doesn't taste much, this is the brew for him or her.

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.
