Pours a pale yellow with very little white fizzy head. There was no lacing left on the glass. This was actually pretty drinkable and there was some slight hint of flavor. This is an easy beer to session. I would not buy this, because of the price being too high.

You're sitting in your car.
Your pants are tighter.
You're trying to loose weight.
You had a long day.
You are a little low on cash but want a good brew.

Hands down a great beer. Sure it's a light beer but you can have a good time, wake up w/ no beer belly, enjoy a fair taste and still keep your calories low so twist off the cap and pour it in your glass. Cheers!

Great tasting and super light in calories and carbs. Which is the selling point of this beer.
You have to admit, the artwork design of the can is top notch! The presentation is high class. No wonder this beer is marketing to golfers. The smell is exactly what I expected from a light beer. That wonderful smell of white bread! Yeasty, malty, sweet aroma. The taste is nice, crisp and very refreshing. A light white bread top note, the middle is where light beers start to diminish and this beer is no different. All that aroma and yeasty malt goes away and begins to taste like sparkling water instead. The finish is about as dry as it gets. No hop bitterness to speak of, but you can tell its all about balance with this light lager. The feel is a good light to medium. I really enjoyed this light lager, its crisp without any bad aftertaste and refreshing. This beer is a good social beer. Easy to chug but not what it's intended for. I would not recommend buying 6 packs or cases because its too expensive. For the price, I recommend you to go cheap.

Yes I drank one of these. Yes I'm ashamed. But I was trying to be polite at a get together. The host didn't know any better. God was this awful. I managed to dump the last of it out without being noticed ... I think.

I have been drinking beer for many years and have tried many. As I age I have noticed that my mornings after drinking are getting more rough. The think I really enjoy about this beer is that I can drink until the sun comes up, get a good buzz and not feel like a zombie for and entire day! I love this beer!
