2.85/5 rDev +78.1%
Bottle was not poured into a glass. There's no sense in that for this type of beer.
Golden yellow color, transparent head, that disappears within a minute, high carbonation
Taste: Rice, and grassy hay
Smells: Rice Soda
Overall, this is a no frills light beer. I'd have it over others of the type.
I doubt it would ever be in my fridge.

A-crystal clear light gold with a snow white head that vanished fast
S-sweet grain, not sure if I smell hops, if I do it is very small
T-sweet grain taste with no hop bitterness, with the sweet grain taste that just stays with you
M-very light and high carbonation
O-What i expected is what I got. This beer is great for many that want to have a beer and be able to drink beer all night. It would be great at a party, and to drink on a summer day while I was grilling.

A: Poured into a pint glass from a bottle. This beer is a pale golden yellow. Not much of a head to brag about here but it does leave a slight lacing on the glass
S: Notes of malt and rice. It took a few times to really get the scent it as there isn't much to it.
T: Very little flavor if any at all. There is virtually no taste of hops and almost no bitterness to this beer.
M: It is a very light bodied lager with high carbonation that almost stings. Consistency is like water.
O: This is a perfectly marketed beer. It is low in calories and alcohol content. It won't offend anyone's taste buds because there isn't any taste to be offended by. It is a beer to enjoy on a hot summer day by those who are watching calories. My suggestion... drink water instead.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale golden yellow in color with significant amounts of active carbonation streaming quickly from the bottom of the glass and some hints of straw yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a medium to large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Very light aromas of grainy malts with a touch of rice adjuncts.
T: Not much flavor to this beer - light flavors of grainy malts with a hint of rice adjuncts. No perceptible hops and minimal amounts of bitterness.
M: Light bodied with significant amounts of carbonation. Almost prickly carbonation but still very thin/watery.
O: Slightly skunky but not that shocking since it is packaged in a clear glass bottle. The beer was not offensive but that is because there was not much too it to offend - very little flavor or smell to this beer. I probably would not grab another of these but I can see why some people could go for this when they are looking for low alcohol and low calorie options.
