Hey someone had to be the 2nd
A - Pours a very light golden color. Lots of head formation, pearly white in color. Dissipating somewhat slowly. Very filtered, but with lots of apparent carbonation.
S - This beer is "scent optional" Nothing there but just the lightest hint of yeast/malt breadiness.
T - Starts off with the flavor of, well, nothing but water. Then, as if by miracle, some very light malt notes make an appearance through the midstream. No apparent hopping. Finishes with a strong flourish of...guess what....water! In the finishing notes some adjunct corny notes make a bit of an appearance.
M - Way too carbonated for anything I'd drink - thats the only way they are fooling people this beer is anything above dasani. Beer is itself just outright thin.
D - You could drink an army of these - plus more. Any BA that can't session 24 hours of these got distracted on the way to the cooler.
As much as I rag on this beer - sadly it does have a home in my beer rotation. On days where I'm watching my cals or just wanting an extreme session beer on my bike, i think 55 would get it done.
I call this beer the pacifier beer. When you want a real beer, but you just can't have it - stick this in your mouth and you'll shut up for a while.

A- Thin, watery pale yellow with fizzy white head that fades fast. Looks like gingerale.
S- There is a smell? I tried to find a smell and ended up snorting beer. Faint, faint hint of sweet malt and maybe citrus.
T- Its like watered down, watered down beer. No wonder its low in calories, its basically water with a splash of beer. Very faint sweet taste of malt and corn and thats it.
M- Overly carbonated, thin and watery
D- Harsh and fizzy, watery, boring, and unpleasant.

Pours clear golden yellow with a modest head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring.
Aroma has an odd musty vegetal quality with an underlying corn adjunct sweetness.
Taste is pale malt with a very light crisp finish.
Mouthfeel is light bodied with an unusual powdery quality that coats the tongue.
Very thin and watery flavor. I won't have another one.

poured from can into a pint glass. body is a clear pale straw color with half a finger of white bubbly head that disappears rather quickly. smell and taste were almost none. was able to pick up on faint grains and a metallic tonic water flavor. beer goes down pretty clean with no hops flavor and too much carbonation. like drinking a glass of tonic, maybe i should of addded vodka and a lime.
