Re-review, because I felt like I my old review was too generically mean spirited. That, and bile fascination.

A: Pours a VERY light straw color with perfect clarity and strong carbonation rising to the head. White colored head with pathetic retention/lacing.

S: There is a noble aspect to this beer...granted, it's pretty unrefined, but the fact that it exists in a light macro is stunning. Otherwise features the typical grainy note (in this case, rice, not corn) of most light macros.

T: Not good, but expectedly not good. There is a slightly rough tone of rice adjuncts at first, and that slimy aftertaste I detest in most adjuncts, but otherwise, there's almost no flavor at all. You could pound these, but why would you want to? Just pound water instead!

M: Seltzer water-esque.

O: It's good for one thing: when for whatever reason, you're pounding beers like a madman and don't want to seem as hoi polloi as the typically redneck Bud Light drinkers. That's it. People, I drink this stuff so you don't have to, so just get some real beer instead. Might I suggest some Sierra Nevada Pale Ale?
