Pours a pale, grassy yellow with a moderate, frothy white head that reduces to a film quickly, leaving some sparse lacing.

Smells primarily of grain adjuncts; namely corn and rice. Very mild floral note.

Has a very watery, somewhat metallic and astringent taste with a faint citrus-like tone. The finish is crisp and clean.

Extremely thin mouthfeel with a high carbonation level that pops on the tongue. A corn tone permeates the aftertaste and lingers.

Even for a low calorie light lager, this is pretty bad with an almost total absence of flavour. What little is there is rather unappealing as well.

Poured this Light Lager from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a pale yellow color, produced a small amount of head, poor retention and left only a small amount of lace on the glass. The aroma consists of cooked corn and cereal. Light in body, this brew has very little grain flavor, it tastes more of water then it does beer. There is only a ever so slight amount of hop bitterness. Dry finish. Overall one of the most boring,non flavorful beers that i have ever tried.
