A- clear and fizzy

S-clean but definently adjunct all the way. some barely noted on the back.

T-light beer is a light beer but does have a cleaner taste than coors ever will.

M- does not exist- Alcohol water purifed

O- cheap bar beer with a couple friends at the local neighborhood bar. nothing to buy outside of that.

From a can and poured into a pilsener glass

Appearance: Very clear, no haze by any degree. There is a very thin head on top, slightly bready on the edges. Vanishes quite rapidly.

Smell: As with a lot of other beers of this style, it is very hard to detect the individual ingredients that are present in the aroma. It is pretty dry, some bready notes and no detectable hop character. It does smell like a beer though.

Taste: Quite similar to the experience I received when analyzing the aroma, very little in the way of diversity and detectability. However there is some flavor, most notably the rather single-faced malt flavor. I would describe its flavor as having been bleached, you can tell its there, but seems to have been intentionally weakened.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, and when combined with ice cold temperatures does an effective job covering up any other features of the beer. When let raise to slightly higher temperatures though, the mouthfeel does develop some more texture, very light be it at that.

Overall: I found it very hard to review this beer, I could not distinguish any individual ingredients. It is so light and so blended that it really does mask itself from being thoroughly identified. I really do not find the appeal of this beer in flavor, I can only see it in terms of price.
