The great fat-burning beer is here and it is only $2 per pint on Wednesday nights. It most assuredly will cost me less than a pesky gym membership. Time for a review...

Appearance: Pretty much clear. A slight yellow tinge, but pretty much transparent. No head, no nothing.

Smell: Again, not much to tell here. Very thin on the smells. Perhaps a slight hint of corn?

Taste: "I CAN'T TASTE MY BEER!" I have had this numerous times and have yet to taste anything in it. It actually has less flavor than Corona Light.

Mouthfeel: Middle of the road. Some carbonation and a little bite to it, but overall not bad. Usually will be served very cold.

Drinkability: Pound 50 at a time. It is very drinkable because it is so light and flavorless. Not very enjoyable, but very able to be consumed.

I can feel the unsightly flab melting away as I type this. This is the beer for people who believe what they see on TV. It's a macro trend that is all in all...crap. Miller Lite at least has some flavor to it, and not much more on the carb scale. If you're watching the carbs, drink Captain and Diet Coke, but skip this one.

Serving type: on-tap

Got this one on tap during happy hour- it was 1/2 off, and I thought I'd give it a try. Without a doubt, one of the worst beers I've had.
Had a decent appearance- light golden yellow, semi-transparent. It had a short-lived small head and no lacing.
Smell- almost none. Very faint trace of grassy wheat.
Taste- very watery. Could hardly taste the beer, it was more like carbonated water than anything. Pretty disgusting. A faint bitterness, and somewhat grassy corn. Made me want to gag towards the end of the glass.
Mouthfeel- Thin, watery, overcarbonated. Not much there.
Overall- I tried it, now I know. Probably won't drink again unless I get it free somewhere.
