look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

Ordered this from Applebee's, draft, 16 oz glass. Appearance is extremely light, pale straw colored yellow; clear as water and almost as light. Lots of bubbles continue to rise from the bottom to the surface; the head is almost non existant, no lacing but a soap like bubblineess. Smell is sweet corn and malts. Taste is sour and tart, light and watery, no discernible taste of hops or grains. I assume what I am tasting are the adjuncts; rice and corn. Mouthfeel is similar to soda water. This is a beer that you drink when you don't want to take any sort of enjoyment from the beer drinking experience, but then again no one drinks this for its taste. It's "diet" beer, but the low alcohol and crappy flavor nullify the fact that its lower calorie because you would have to drink several of these just to get a buzz, thereby equaling the calories you'd consume from drinking a quality beer. Basically It's what you drink when tap water isn't quite alcoholic enough for you.

Serving type: on-tap

1.2/5  rDev -34.4%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.25

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Crystal clear champagne colored body. White soda pop fizzy head that disappears to nothing fast, no lacing.

Aroma: Very sweet champagne like aroma, very light malts, faint metallic notes.

Taste: A very processed, mechanical, metallic beginning with hardly any natural grain or malt body. There's an almost sharp grape note before the carbonated finish.

Mouthfeel: Between water and soda.

Overall: This beer tries so hard to be so light that it loses the plot.

Serving type: bottle
