3.15/5  rDev +72.1%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

I have had some of these sitting in the bottom shelf of a pantry since having a party. I have been doing renovations to my house for 9 months. The beer has to be at least that old - at room temperiture.

A - Virginia Slims style can, kind of cute. Pours very pale yellow, fizzy. Foam clings only to the edge of the glass forming a circle when you look down into it.

S - Cold, this beer has little smell. These beers are supposed to be consumed very cold. I don't want to smell it when it gets warm. We all know that smell.

T - The flavor is much more like carbonated water than beers I usually drink. But I think that is the point. This style is supposed to be "ultra" light. It's okay. I'm enjoying it. Nothing nasty. No off flavors. Must be the polysorbate-80 or something.

M - The beer actually has has some body, but not much. Again, I think that the style is intended to be this way.

D - Very drinkable. Good beer-bong fodder.

I drank this to find out weather the rest in my pantry are worth saving for my next party. No reason not to keep it.

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
