Very watery, only good for day drinking. Honestly, I would rather just drink water or soda than too much of this.

Using the Begnel formula, the Alcohol Score is 12 oz. x 2.4% = 28.8, or .57 Bud Lights.

Sampled last weekend on 3/4/16. Paid $1.00 for this brew I never had that was found in the discount bin. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage "BUDWEISER" thumb-print goblet glass.

Look of OK but the aroma and taste wasn't nothing to get excited about by any means. Guess if you are trying to count calories or whatever this brew might be for you. If you are looking for any taste instead of a watered-down light brew then this isn't for you either. Overall, a one time thing for me and now I know why it was in the mark-down discount bin.

Good water has more body, character and flavor. What's the point? Enough said but BeerAdvocate requires more so.... Pours a clear extra pale straw producing 2 fingers of white, shortlived, foamy head that leaves a thin collar ring & flecks of lacing. Aroma is barely detectable grains, very faint yeast & lemony hints. Taste is slight adjunct grain & a low level of lemon & grass mixed with an assortment of watery off flavors. Finishes weak and thin with almost no aftertaste. Mouthfeel is ephemeral bodied with moderate carbonation, some peppery bite at the front of the tongue and not much else. My opening statement was enough review without these comments.

55 calories? I thought it tasted like 50, tops. It is better than Mich Ultra, but so is the water you would squeeze out of a wet cardboard box that a cat pissed in.
