Pours a pale golden copper with a loose, soapy head that fades quickly. Smells of sweet corny grains and a hint of metal. The flavor is excessively mild bordering on nonexistent. There are hints of grains and faint earthy hops. The mouthfeel is extremely thin and light, and the beer is excessively carbonated.

Well, they achieved what they were after; a very light, low calorie, flavorless beer.

Pale straw appearance, with a stark-white and soapy head that doesn't retain.

The aroma is rich, from what you can get. Barley, grains, hops, and no adjuncts to my surprise.

The taste, however, is very similar to a flat soft drink. Even though it is very carbonated, it still tastes like a flat soda. There's a slight bite, but it comes from the carbonation. Then the middle and the finish is all white breadiness from the barely malt.

It's very dry, crisp, clean, refreshing.

Almost tasteless. But the taste you do get is very pleasant.
