Picked up a 12 oz single. I'm working my way down a big rack of singles and this came up. I was afraid.

App- Pale, pale yellow. Almost looked like a Belgian white but filtered. Crystal clear. Head fizzes quickly and is pure (maybe off-) white.

Sm- Clean water and adjuncts. I tried with all my might to smell the real beer ingredients but to no avail.

Ta- Clean water, corn/rice up front and in the middle. Back end finally revealed the malt. Still no hop character at all.

Mf- Water, water, water.

*Sigh* Am I one of "those" guys? Who hates every light beer? I hope not. I hope there's one thing out there that tickles my fancy enough that I don't cringe when hearing its name. This is now one of the former. Here is what this beer gives you: 90-something calories. The refreshing taste of ice cold water beer. Is that what they are going for? Probably. And that sucks. As a beverage, I guess it isn't half bad. It's meant, I suppose, to be drunk out of the bottle but I refuse. As a beer, it's bad. It's almost a non-beer. Don't recommend it. Get drunk on low-calorie liquor if that's what you want.
