You know it's bad when the taste is the best part. Pours like golden water, head or lacing. Tastes almost like water, but with a little hint of cereal grains, and no trace of hops at all.

Truly a terrible excuse for beer. I can see why it's considered a girl beer, there's nothing there to be scared of taste wise.

This is from some old beer notes I found while getting ready for a move.

Appearance: The look was probably the closest thing to beer that this “lager” had. Very light and transparent brass color. I will have to give it its due it had a nice white head and lace.

Smell: Very weak but had a small amount of grass tones.

Taste: It tastes like watered down grass and grain. The strongest part of the flavor would be metalic.

Mouthfeel: Thin and very watery.

Overall: This is supposed to be a beer for people that are watching carbs and calories (At least that is how it is marketed).

Pale straw color. Head is normal but looks fine. Pleasant carbonation. Club soda feel and taste, but of a better quality with the fine carbonation. Aroma is undetectable. Sharp mouthfeel, probably from the bubbles. Maybe with an absolutely clean palate you could taste something, but if you didn't know it was beer you might guess right from the sllight metallic bitterness.

Southwest Airlines was kind enough to treat us to this swill after waiting for two hours on the runway.
