Found this lone bottle hanging out in my fridge, it's a left over from last weeks party I hosted.

Pours a clear faint yellow color, really bubbly, with a decent white head.

Aromas are creamy, with some corn, and minerals. While this doesn't smell great, it certainly has more aromas than I expected.

Taste is sweet and mineral like. Lightly creamy, corn like, and crisp. Finish has some light mineral bitterness, and some more sweetness. For a really light beer, this has more flavor than I expected, but it's not very good flavors.

Mouthfeel is thin, and very watery.

Overall, well... It's not quite a drain pour, but it certainly isn't something I'd ever want to drink again. I'll give this beer some credit though for at least having some flavor and aromas, even though they aren't all that pleasant.

This is an impossibly light, light beer. Very pale yellow, head fritzes up and dies. It is alchoholic, yellow seltzer! There is so little here to characterize!!
On the only reason to drink this swill : It has virtualy no carbs! I had this at my son's home; he specificaly bought it because he just started the Atkins Diet. Although, at 4.2 it is not low alchohol.
