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.

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?
