Appearance This stinker came out of the lovely green bottle a solid yellow in color with a nice white head that actually left some lacing on the inside of my glass.
Smell The skunk was in full effect here just like it was for Daddy Heiny. The putrid smell of rotten grain and moldy Pixie Stix filled the room instantly.
Taste Oh, this is gross. I can kind of taste some grain but other than that its like licking a skunks asshole after he just inhaled two giant been burritos and a dead goldfish.
Mouthfeel This is light-bodied with a disappointing carbonated fizzle.
Sinkability This was a very sinkable beer.

Among light beers, this is no worse than average, and perhaps a bit better, but then, this is a low standard to start with. Overall, the flavor profile seemed true to the standard Heineken lager, only watered-down. I suspect you could achieve the same effect by letting a couple of ice cubes melt in a glass of Heineken. Neither offensive nor enjoyable. Just wet.

just an average drinkable beer. very very light, crisp taste. however you can taste that it is a quality made light beer. this sint a bud light we are talking about here. deep, complex taste no, cheap crap no. again would reccomend for dieters mainly.

12 oz green bottle with plastic labels and a bottle code which may or may not have anything to do with freshness.
A- Pale golden straw with a fizzy looking lace from hasty bubbles rising to the top.
S- Not much in the aroma other than some faint grain and cooked hops.
T&M- A bit more smooth than crisp in the light and dry body. Mild astringent quality middle to end. Quick bite of grain and hop bitterness and then the clean and dry after tastes quickly sets in.
D- A watery beer, this is a beer for people that really don't want to drink beer or think that drinking regular beer will make them fat ... its not all of the fast food and junk food that made them fat right? When will this low-carb beer fad die a quick death?

Appearance: 1 inch head, pale yellow in color, clear, moderate carbonation
Smell: weak combo of straw and adjunct malt
Taste: light straw and grain..maybe some bark
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, watery,sweet but the taste is really faint
Overall: I have nothing against light beers, but this one really does taste like water. Refreshing yes, but not what I am going to go for when I want a beer. Still sadly better then the original version.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a very light yellow with a white head. The aroma is straight skunk. I know this is not how the brewer intended the beer to smell, but when you choose a light green bottle for your beer, you should be held responsible if it skunks. The flavor is not as skunky and has notes of corn and grass. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I had this beer on the golf course , around sunset. I don't know what it looks like because i had it in a bottle , but i think i can guess. The smell was like a lighter heiny , some light grains , bit of haller hop , some alcohol , and the signature skunk. Taste was of mild graint malt mixed with the regular heiniken taste , but lighter. Bitterness seemed a bit more pronounced in the finish. Overall , it had a more refreshing quality , but it was very thin a i would not buy it. It did however get the job done , and as almost any beer would , it made my evening a little bit better.

Skunky Heineken aroma. Yellow beer, fizzy head. Same sweet rice/malt flavor with some saaz flavors. I gave this a 2.5 in the flavor department, because this is possibly the only light beer that tastes just like its big brother, so its got that going for it.

Very clear light yellow with almost no head at all, nose is bland, corn and alcohol.
Taste is also very bland, dry and boring. Mouthfeel is very light and dry, it's easy drinking for a buzz but not a good beer at all. It's got such a low abv though it's hardly even worth drinking.

A: Clear, piss-yellow w/ 2-finger foamy head.
S: Smells like a fart! (no joke)
T: Like beer flavored water. The only good commet I can make is that the carbonation isn't too high like other lagers I've tried.
M: Pretty smooth. Comes and goes with just a malt and bubble profile.
D: High, if you like this sort of "beer". I only drank it to review it since my buddy left some in my fridge.
I saw a bumper sticker here in Marin that said: "don't eat yellow snow, don't drink yellow beer" -words to live by!
