A: Clear yellow. About 2 fingers of quickly vanishing head. Minimal lacing. Lots of bubbles inside.

S: Corn. Just corn.

T: Corn, sugar, very very faint malts. It's not unpleasant, but not much different from a carbonated glass of water.

M: Extremely light lager here. It evaporates from the tongue and leaves nothing behind. One of the lightest lagers I've ever tried. It does have descent carbonation, for what it is.

O: It's just okay. I think there are much better adjunct lagers to be had. I guess this one is just for people on strict diets.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a pint glass (probably not even necessary), reviewed live:

A - Pours a very pale straw golden color, with a half finger of fizzy white head that disappears almost instantly. Beyond unappealing.

S - Strange off notes, unrefined cereal grains and sugar. Wretched.

T - Pretty much the same as the nose, though there is one predominant flavor: water. Stale adjunct rounds out the awfulness.

M - Light bodied, watery, and highly carbonated.

D - None.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Appearance: pours an extremely pale yellow color, virtually almost devoid of color. There was a 2" head that quickly evaporated.

Smell: vegetable and corn mostly with a hint of grass.

Taste: little to no malt profile. Corn, dried grass, and no bitterness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: light in body. Crisp throughout with a dry finish that is actually unpleasant. Clean aftertaste.

Overall: I don't understand why light beers need to be so tasteless. This is one of the worst ones I have had to sample. If you want some flavor in a light beer, have a Sam Adama Light. Avoid this.
