there is worse tasting beers out there, but only because this can scarcely be considered beer. it doesnt taste much like anything. it pours lighter than piss, about as clear as my tap water, with soda carbonation yet zero head. the nose is offensive old apple juice and malt extract watered down way past a reasonable level. the taste is nonexistant, less taste than any other beer ive ever put in my mouth, its downright absent. no body at all, too many bubbles, what is the point of this? if you want to cut carbs, dont drink beer at all, or skip the cereal in the morning, but dont shave away the elements that makes a beer a beer, this is an assualt on brewing, and something i never want to see in my fridge again. damn my old man, who thinks he can get skinny on this shit!

Thanks to Tucker for buying a 12 pack of these and usually drinking half of these by the time he gets to wherever we are!

Looks like a very weak, but professional beer, tons of clarity, light watery yellow appearance, thin head. Pour a bunch of water into a normal AAL and this is what it prolly looks like. Aroma, almost nonexistant, but you can get a smidge of barley aroma in it. Its not bad, its just barely present.

Taste, barely anything to taste, but again, it isn't a bad taste, its just extremely watered down. Same with the mouthfeel. When you start to think you can pick up on a small hop zest, you realize its just the massive amount of carbonation they put in. Its like equal parts seltzer water and AAL.

I like this beer when its like 100 degrees out. Or when I need to cleanse my palate. Other than that, I don't understand this beer, but its not bad. Just watered down. Which is bad. Hmmm. Its somewhere between bad and watered down.

For a low carb beer with 90 something calories it isn't a horrible choice for cats on a diet. I like to drink them during the week because they don't jack you up and your not killing yourself with late night carbs. That being said I would never order one at a restaurant and short of the principle listed above would probably never drink one other than that.
