2.25/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A - clear, see-through copper with a short-lived, fizzy white head

S - grainy, sweet

T - grains, caramel, sweet, metallic aftertaste

M - sticky, light bodied, crisp, overcarbonated

This is an incredibly light beer with little flavor. It's crisp and very easy to drink as is expected. The off notes are enough to ruin this one. I won't buy it again.

this beer had a slight carbonated feel to it. Not especially strong taste wise and I consider this a party beer where quantity wins out. I would definitely drink it again especially on a hot southern summer day. Appearance was of good color and it had a nice aroma that was not off the mark from its taste.

2.3/5  rDev -0.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The fizzy head fades almost instantly leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is light overall with it consisting of a mix of caramel with notes of graininess. Along with these smells is a faint whiff of a grassy smell and a bit of fruit.

Taste – The taste begins with a very watery flavor with just a hint of a grain and roasted malt. Upfront there is very little sweetness, but as the taste advances a lighter corn sweetness with a hint of caramel comes to the tongue. A very light herbal flavor and some tastes of paper come to the tongue at the very end of the taste, leaving a rather thin and weak amber flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is super thin with a carbonation level that is average. While the thin body is quite expected, a bit higher of carbonation would have been more fitting for the style, creating a more refreshing feel overall.

Overall – Don’t expect too much here. But really should you really be expecting tons with a “ultra” low cal beer?
