Poured into a glass stein. To say it has any color is generous, maybe golden but quite transparent. A nice finger of white head formed, and was quickly gone. No lacing.

Smells like cotton candy (weird). There's another "sweet" smell in there... like candy corn.

Taste like water and rice.

Fizzy and light bodied. No real texture to speak of.

It is what it is... and it isn't even an above average Light Lager. Weird smell, no taste and looked average.

Boring as beer gets.

Pours very clear golden color, almost no head. Bubbles never stop rising from the bottom of the glass.

Very little smell, maybe slight tin.

The taste of beer is there, albeit very little. Not bad taste, just weak taste.

Feels like bitter H2O going down.

Not a huge fan of Lite Beers, so I will be fair. It's beats the Coors and Miller versions - but that's about it.
