Oh my. This is the drink that my friends have while golfing. I really don't see why you wouldn't drink water 1 : 1 with an actual beer instead of drinking this. If you need to count calories that bad, just skip about 250 calories worth of food in a day and enjoy a decent beer......

It's a light lager and for it is, it isn't half bad.

Strictly old lady beer or beer you drink while fishing or mowing. But with only 10 less calories that other nane brand light beers I can't tell a difference. I mean when was beer marketed as a health drink. Good for getting a buzz and not feeling too bad the next day. The bottles are good for hitting road signs

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- you have got to be kidding, not much here
Appearance- It has an OK golden color but no head.
Taste- It has some beer flavor but not much.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- This beer is for yardwork, fishing or heavy session drinking. with that said it ain't bad for those events.

Awfullly bland. No taste at all. Might as well drink carbonated water.

This is really not that bad. It tastes like water but I don't mind that, sometimes I just need a beer that doesn't have a strong flavor. I like the bottle design too. This is overall not a bad choice, definitely better than Bud Light.

I don't know why this beer gets knocked all the time, if you want a low carb/light beer with a decent taste and a higher than 3% volume this is it.

Not as bad as some of these reviews would indicate. I'm not a ABI or MillerCoors fan at all but when I'm at someone's house for a barbecue and its hot and humid as hell this isn't a bad choice. Time and place I suppose.

This is the beer I go to when I just want to get a cold, refreshing buzz without the bitterness of full flavor beer or the alcohol kick of liquor. Not much going for it in terms of character. I drink carbonated water daily and this simply feels like a hoppy, alcoholic version of that. I would say that it's deceptively strong for its watered down taste.

I am a fan of domestic light beer, and this is my goto. The bros insist waitresses card me when I order, claiming you can't order Ultra unless you are under 21. But I can't help myself, this is what I like. I can drink these all night with no damage. If you like flavor or a buzz, stay away - this aint THAT brew. This is for guys like me who harvest flavor from the enchiladas, and seek refreshment from my brew.

Unbiased, this was honestly the worst experience I have ever had drinking beer in my life. I'd rather pour this down the drain than finish one. Probably the worst beer I have ever had.

Pours a near translucent yellow with little to no head. The scent had a bit of rice on it but nothing much. The taste was terribly mild with only some rice in the beginning. Not a fan.

Might be the worst beer to date. No taste. Better off drinking a glass of water

Great light beer to enjoy without the calories. Smooth with lower alcohol content than other beers. Just a good beer to have onhand.
