look: 2.25 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Review date: 10/8/2013. Best before 12/23/2013.

Appearance: Extremely clear, golden color. Tons of carbonation streaming up the glass. Pours about two fingers worth of a bright, white head that quickly recedes. Minimal lacing left upon the glass.

Smell: Nothing much to describe. Some very faint notes of sweetness, light corn aroma. Passing notes of cereal grain. Very hard to pick out at first, but they intensify as the beer warms.

Taste: Very light. Some more sweet corn character at the front of the tongue. A bit of an artificial sweetener taste, fading into some light cereal grain. Just a touch of bitterness at the end, but very faint. As it warms, more of that artificial sweetener finish.

Mouthfeel: Very little body to this one, much like drinking water. The carbonation does scrub over the tongue aggressively at first, backing off as the beer warms up. Very easy to drink.

Overall: Well, the "Lite" is certainly accurate, very light on aroma and taste before it warms up, and when they do emerge from blandness, they're not a pleasant change. Very easy to drink, and can be enjoyed in an appropriate atmosphere, but overall it's a very unremarkable and forgettable beer. Drinkable, but not really worth picking up.
