Pours a very pale straw color with a fizzy head that goes down almost immediately. There's not much of a smell except for a bit of the hops. Taste is some adjunct and a hint of hoppy bitterness. The mouthfeel is very watery. As the beer warms up, it takes a skunky aroma and taste. Best if you drink it ice cold, which I guess is why is advertised as such.

Poured from can into pint glass

Appearance – It pours a light golden color with tons of bubbles seen streaming through the brew. There is a two finger white head formed upon pouring the fades quite fast to give very little lacing.

Smell – Some corn and some metallic aromas are the most pertinent. These are mixed with a very light caramel aroma.

Taste – Light corn with a very light caramel taste sum up the whole taste experience for the most part. There really is not too much else going on.

Mouthfeel – Very thin and a medium level of carbonation. For the lightness of the brew a bit more carbonation would be called for as it would hidden some of the flavor and given a more tantalizing mouthfeel.

Overall – Not really what I would call a good beer. It’s not all the refreshing as many “light beers” could be considered and would not be something I would look for after a long hot day or a long run in the sun. Low cal – yes, but beyond that not much else.
