Pours a pale yellow color, some carbonation, little fizzy white head, with some minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is grainy/ricy. The taste is the same as the nose. Light Body. Again another lame attempt for a beer. What a waste of a bottle.

Surprise! I mixed this into the Unorganized Invitational as the fourth of six entries. Why you ask? I'll explain later, but let's see what this "Premium Light" has to offer:

Poured into a stange glass, it pours and looks like a pilsner with its clear yellow body. Seeing an average head on it brought some hopes about this offering, but that was its high tide. It shares it's skunky scent with its brother. Taste wise, it's certainly watered down, Malt flavor is light and astringent, sour cereal-like taste balances it all out with a watery feel.

If you've been following the Unorganized Invitational, you don't need me to tell you this won't make the cut...

...which brings us to why I chose this beer in the first place. Well, this is my 100th review, and after drinking all those brews, I wanted something lighter in calories and tasting like water. Yeah, right! Anyone watching their chick-flick ads knows who this is targeted to. There's nothing "premium" about this except the price tag.
