12oz can

On the pour 1 finger of white head formed then quickly dissipated to your average AAL head covering. Body is a standard pale clear straw.

Aroma is "beer" minus 90% of everything. Some cheap funk but I guess the vagueness keeps it ok.OK.

Taste is ultra watered down budweiser. Not to the point of being a seltzer, but it's pretty close. There is a slight malty finish but that's about it.

Feel is where the wateriness really comes through. Seltzer like feel without the refreshment of water.

Overall this is a dry malt flavored hard seltzer with 2.4% ABV.

Had that one time at a party back in the day. I have had a wicked lot of beers from these guys, most of which are not at all good whatsoever, this included.

(This is an old review from 2005. I had it for the 99 cal Bud Select but it was this one)

As bad a brew as I've had from one of the major breweries....I thought this would be "added" flavor being it was "select"...it is not....it has little flavor and what flavor it does have is nasty...it literally tastes like I took a glass of water...dropped an ounce of Bud Light into and mixed it up...this has no redeeming qualities. I'd take a host of light beer over this that have more flavor....the worst purchase I have made in many years...stick to regular Bud if you like AB Macros..

Alright, so this isn't a great beer. But make no mistake, this isn't a good beer either.

If Eberhard and Adolphus rolled out of their grave this would be the first beer they destroyed. It's been said before, but I'll say it again, "If you're counting calories, drink water or switch to vodka."

It's thin, flavorless and odd smelling.
If you're that worried about carbs/calories, drink water, it tastes better.
Definitely not a beer lovers beer.

I like light beers and I’m watching calories. I realize a lot of people hated the taste but I was surprised that this tasted so good to me. Light and crisp and I didn’t feel guilty drinking a couple. I don’t drink a lot so this works for me ! It’s is hard to find bottles and just a 6 pack because it wasn’t popular. I only find it in 24 cans which doesn’t work for me. Bumper

12oz bottle - review from notes

Just watered down bud lite, basically. 2.4% ABV makes me scratch my head in absolute bewilderment: Who in tarnation is this beer for? Near beer that isn't near beer

I just don't get it

Possibly the worst beer I have ever had. The look is light and not very frothy. The taste is sour and actually made me feel on the queasy side. With only 2.4 ABV meaning you would to drink twice as many to get to feeling good makes this beer an even poorer choice. Sure it s lower in carbs and calories but give me a break. I d rather drink NA beer because it tastes better.

Needless to say I will never buy this beer again. To call it a lager is a travesty.
