Look - Drank straight from the can so I don't know.

Smell - brings me back to the first time I had regular Bud select. Smells like corn flake cereal and nothing more.

Taste - It would be like taking stale corn flakes and putting them in a bowl of water and letting it sit over night before consuming.

Feel - Light bodied, low carbonation. Watery.

Overall - As IGN said, " Too much water ".

Had this one at a minor league hockey game. Was basically water. If someone gave me a blind taste test with this and a bottle of water I would say this was the water 4 out of 10 times.

It is what it was made to be. Low carb low taste. So little taste.

Really to call this beer is an insult to beer. Quite honestly even given the lousy beer Budweiser produces these days, this one takes the cake. This is the most watered down beer I have ever tasted. I find myself adding things to it just to give it a taste. I would write about the taste if it had one. To give this a review on flavor would be like giving a review on the taste of water. True it only has 55 calories, and it tastes like it. I would just as soon not drink than drink this stuff. Really.
