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!

12 oz bottle

Pours clear light straw gold, white ring of a head.

Smells very faintly of corn and barley malts.

Tastes of sparkling water, hints of corn flake.

Light body, stinging carbonation on the tongue.

It basically tastes like water. It's not a bad taste so much as a nothing taste. There is a bit more flavor in the aftertaste than the taste itself, sweet like corn sugar. Pour and aroma are uninteresting, body is fine for the style. It's exactly what it says it is, low carb light beer. So there's nothing surprising here. Wouldn't have it again unless I had to drink tasteless light beer, in which case it's not terrible.
