Super pale super clear yellow and fizzy. Little head. Nothing on the nose but grain. Goes down like an amstel light, pretty close to tasting like seltzer water. Touch of grain prickly carbonation and not a single hop flavor that I can detect. There are far better low calorie beers out there that probably have even less calories than this but actually have some flavor. I'd go as fast as saying miller lite has more flavor than this one. Just bland and unenjoyable. If i'm gonna cut calories why would I was it on this $9 six as opposed to the thousands of 6$ ones that tastes just the same if not possibly better.

Appearance - Very light yellow. Crystal clear and bubbly. Tall white foamy head. Quickly dissipates.

Smell - Light pale malt. Not unlike a macrolager.

Taste - Very light. Sweet pale malt and water. Hint of hoppy sourness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp.

Overall - An ale version of a diet beer? Not sure I needed that.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a clear pale yellow like a pilsner, only without any real head or lacing to speak of. Smells vaguely like adjuncts, and tastes vaguely like beer, I guess, but mostly handles like a refreshing mineral water that has been "beer flavored" with extremely diluted extract. Not a real winner in my book. If I wanted to have this sort of experience (and I don't) I'd consume a BMC. At least it isn't skunked in any way.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass. Clear, pale yellow in color. Very short, quickly dissapating head of white foam.
Aroma-Faint pilsner malt
Taste-Watery "light" beer flavor. Like drinking water out of a rinsed glass that had actual beer in it. "110 calories" touted on the label makes me think that this is Steven's Point version of a light beer. No need to stoop so low guys, your other offerings are pretty good if not very good. Let the macro brews deal with the watery beer, and keep up the craft end of things that you do pretty well. I'd rather have one of your crisp pale ales or quenching wheat brews on a hot day than snuggle up with this skanky blonde.

Thanks to WoodyChandler for this one. Poured into 9oz pilsener glass.Poured a very light and thin looking yellow with just a thin cap of white head that had zero retention or lacing. There were lots of carbonation bubbles sticking to the side of the glass though.

The aroma was slightly sweet, with a touch of grain in the background. The basic aroma profile was that of "beer", that generic beery smell we all know from dive bars and bowling alleys. The taste was the same, a slightly sweet beer taste, no real outstanding notes, or terrible ones either.

The body was crisp and the beer was easy drinking, although there was a slight stickiness on the finish. Drinkability was good enough, my can went down very quickly and easily. Overall, while nothing special or worth seeking out, this brew would make a decent "chore beer", when you just want a quick, refreshing brew while playing with your weed-eater, this would be an acceptable choice.
