A: Medium gold that kind of glows. Drop of orange. Nice looking.

S: Beer smell...nothing else.

T: One of the smoothest and most crisp beers. The only problem is that it is very very watery. You dont get the crappy adjunct taste like in BMC's. But you also dont get much else. Most drinkable beer out there though. It's like water, but not bad. Extremely non=offensive.

M: Wet and fizzy. Very very crisp and smooth.

O: Very cheap and light beer with some flavor. I like it.

I got a 24 oz can of this ultra at 711. I have never had it before.

The appearance is rather poor. It has no head and it is a faint yellow color. The smell is that of burnt corn. The beer tastes like burnt corn also. It feels like soda water in the mouth. With that said it is easy to drink but I don't see the point since it tastes terrible.

Avoid this beer at all costs. It's really disgusting. And I have no idea why people buy it since it's not even cheap.

If you are looking for a "good" beer, this is not it. If you are hoping to save a few calories (and especially carbs), this can't be beat. Smell is kind of funky, the taste is quite waterish and it will take about 4 before you feel any buzz whatsoever. Essentially this beer is good for what it was created to be...a low carb macro-brew.

(a)-Pours a very pale yellow, reminiscent of Coors light. Little to no head, no lacing, dead. (2/5)

(s)-Corn, corn, and more corn. (2/5)

(t)-For anyone out there on a diet, this is definetly the best offering...but thats only because bud-select and bud-select 55 are its competition. Still, good enough to get down with dinner without running to the treadmill. (3/5)

(m)-Pretty flat, makes me think of tearing into that growler that had been sitting for 2 months...oops. (1.5/5)

(d)-Yeah. I gave it a 4,and heres why bitches. Try drinking another light beer in this calorie category AND THEN go pick it up again. I'll drink the 6 pack...but I'd rather let myself have 3 calorie packed delights. (4/5)

Pours a typical pale yellow with a lot of bubbles and a light head. Par for the course with any macro lager. Ugh.

Faint corn smell. Barely anything.

Just like the smell, the taste is not much of anything. Weak corn/grainy sort of taste.

Holy carbonation. A light beer taste, overpowered by something like carbonated water.

Hey, just because this is easy to drink...doesn't mean you should.

Horrific beer.
