Pours a pale yellow color with literally no head at all, how is this possible?
Smells faintly of light lager yeast, light barley, and a bit of apple.
Tastes of seltzer, and liquified crackers.
Mouthfeel is thin, watery, finishes crisp and carbonated though.
Overall, this isn't beer, Coors light even has more flavor than this.

I decided to buy this because my protruding stomach was giving me a guilt trip while I was at the neighborhood grocery store. I remembered the commercials that used to advertise this very long ago, which showed joggers *laugh* enjoying these "low-carb" brews.

Look: Looks like water that came out of a faucet with a busted pipe.
Smell: Smells like dirty water.
Taste: Basically tastes like someone grinded up a loaf of bread, and then strained water through the mulch.
Feel: Has a slightly carbonated feel on my tongue. Crisp, very light.

Overall: If you're trying to cut down on the carbs, just don't drink. I wouldn't suggest this except for the beer drinker that doesn't like to have much flavor (newbies I guess). It's not undrinkable, but for a beer connoisseur it'll be like drinking water.

Pours a straw yellow. Smells of malt and nothing else. Tastes of bready malts and water. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Overall it's a pretty sub par beer but I prefer it to bud.

It tastes like "beer flavored carbonated water." Inoffensive and uninspiring, certainly better than many light beers. You can drink a lot of these without being filled up - so, there's that.
