Served from a 355ml can

A: Piss. Very pale with a head that lasts a couple seconds and dissipates like a soda leaving no lacing.

S: Very grainy and grassy smelling.

T: Just like the smell. Tastes way to grainy and far to watery. Some beers are neutral and just watery others are watery and carry some nastiness with them. This one is the latter.

M: Water. Goes down like a soda with the carbonation hitting your mouth in an unpleasant way.

Overall: I've drank this a few times now. I'm Canadian and where I'm from this beer was unavailable till a couple months maybe a year ago. I'd had it in the states before this and found it appalling. Much to my dismay it reared it ugly head in our neck of the woods. I drink it when I'm offered it at parties and get togethers and could see it being sessionable but I don't really enjoy the experience.

Served in a bottle at Earl of Sandwich in Newark International Airport (EWR) Terminal A

A: Pours a very pale yellow in color with very few golden yellow highlights and minimal amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall thin soapy white head that quickly reduces to the faintest of rings at the edges of the glass. Minimal to light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Overall the aroma of this beer is almost non-existant, there is a faint aroma of corn adjunct malts.

T: Light to moderate flavors of adjunct malts, both corn and rice seem to stand out for me. Extremely light hints of grassy hops that give the beer a light amount of bitterness in the finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Easy to drink but definitely not a beer that I will be getting again - limited selection at the airport lead to trying this one... It is too thin and too watery to really be enjoyable.

pours a crystal clear, anemic yellow straw with a small head that poofs. nose; meddling yeast, & extremely faint lemon. taste; light yeast, & very light citrus. not much else. medium carbonation & very light mouthfeel. nothing offensive about this beer, but it's only a step away from just drinking carbonated water. the big sell is that it's only 95 calories, but why not just grab a la croix for 0 calories?
