I have one of these left sitting lonely at the back of the fridge. Thought I'd take time to give it a fair shot.
Appearance - poured into a glass. nothing. No lace, no head. Looks like champagne. Bad.
Smell - Smell is faint but I'll do my best. Hmm...wet cornbread. Wet, musty grain. Corn husks. Basically processed corn bread water solution.
Taste - cornbread carbonated seltzer quickly evaporates into plain water and then, mysteriously, nothing. If you're pounding it, it goes down smooth. I like the fizz, its exciting like pop rocks. But for character? Taste? Nope, this beer flat out sucks.
Mouthfeel - fizz. More fizz. Water.
Overall - a true light beer cut in half. 2.4% ABV, 55 calories. So a 1/4 of a real beer. Naturally a terrible seltzer that is made for either beer-shy women or extremely hot days when you want to pound two or three in five minutes. Easy drinking, Ill give it that.
I'd rather have this than seltzer water but honestly the two are so close it's almost debatable. You've got to expect that for "55" calories, though. If you're new to beer you will probably like it, but there's a whole world out there of flavor-filled brews to explore, so don't stop here.

While I am still questing to knock out as many of the Beers of Fame as I possibly can, it is also interesting to review the Bottom of the Barrel beers, the anti-Beers of Fame. These are some the most awful beers known to mankind. I will not put as much effort into these reviews as I would a legitimate brew, but it is still fun nonetheless.
This beer pours the color of watered down urine. Side poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Has a nasty, soapy head that goes from huge to nonexistent very quickly. Smells like metal shavings. Tastes like it looks, I wish it tasted like it smelled. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated, almost nonexistent. Overall, a terrible attempt at making beer drinking a healthy past time. Just like turkey bacon sucks, so does this beer.

This tastes like some sort of slightly alcoholic, grainy water. It is the most tasteless beer I have ever encountered. If you want to avoid carbs and calories, and also like lower alcohol levels, and also do not care AT ALL about taste, than this is your beer. If you care about taste, this is simply not on the table.
