ok time to start the bud light jokes

but you will not laugh when you are in the middle east and this is the only beer on the menu, then its a shining light of hope

of course back here in the states its often the last beer i drink...what i mean is the beer in the back of the fridge that i will drink in times of desperation and there is nothing left :-)

so here it goes...surprisingly it poured pretty nice. now it looks totally out of place! haha its almost as clear as water, haha something can't be right with that....but, the head is amazing on this beer and you can't take away from that. also the bubbles are perfect.

smell? well a weird grass smell and actually you can smell the alcohol too. that's weird considering its such a low abv beer.

tastes...just like nothing really, but maybe it should be graded upwards for that? i mean if that is what they are going for they did it. but the problem is there is just not any flavor or body

they way i see this is it "gets the job done" and is really refreshing from a carbonated water perspective, but come on, there is just not enough substance in this beer to get remotely excited about it.
