look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Appearance: pours an extremely pale yellow color, virtually almost devoid of color. There was a 2" head that quickly evaporated.

Smell: vegetable and corn mostly with a hint of grass.

Taste: little to no malt profile. Corn, dried grass, and no bitterness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: light in body. Crisp throughout with a dry finish that is actually unpleasant. Clean aftertaste.

Overall: I don't understand why light beers need to be so tasteless. This is one of the worst ones I have had to sample. If you want some flavor in a light beer, have a Sam Adama Light. Avoid this.

I had this beer over the weekend at a parry. Poured a pale straw yellow with a fizzy head that died almost immediately. Aroma was non-existant. Taste was minimal corn and adjunct with a slight bitter finish. This was my first and last time to drink this beer.

A very light colored straw yellow with a very small, rapidly disappearing head that doesn't leave the glass with any stick.

There is almost no aroma to this whatsoever. What's here is very faint: faint grain and a bit of corn.

Following the aroma, the flavor is almost non-existent. There's a very low level of bitterness, some grain, corn, and a touch of sweetness.

Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

This may be the lightest, least flavorful beer I've ever had. There is almost nothing here.
