look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

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.

12oz clear bottle purchased (cheaply) at the local Hannaford's. Pours a crystal clear very light straw yellow with an initial white head that dissipates almost immediately. Smells mostly like cooked corn with hints of malt in the background. Tastes very light. Cooked corn (DMS) and slight hints at bready malt character toward the finish is all I'm getting. Extremely light-bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty drinkable, no surprise since this basically comes off as beer-flavored carbonated water. Dull and lifeless, albeit somewhat refreshing.

Clear urine yellow with a fizzy white head that burns off quickly. The nose on this beer is not offensive because there is none. Very light tasting, almost like a non-alcoholic beer with a sourness in the finish. Watery with seltzery carbonation. Another low alcohol diet beer with no flavor. Why bother?
