12 oz. bottle with no freshness date. It pours into the pilsner glass a crystal-clear pale gold with light carbonation and a finger of white head that leaves little lace. The aroma is quite light and macroish with maybe a touch of hops and the flavor is just as bland, with maybe some corn but no trace of hops.The body is light and tingly, drying, with a short finish. Overall not much more than carbonated alcohol water. Might as well drink something from BMC instead of paying for this import.

2.58/5 rDev +7.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75
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.
