Poured from what I have to admit is a pretty cool looking blue bottle...

Appearance - Never seen this before - really didn't pour any head at all, poured the last half "really rough", and it fizzed for a moment which immediately disappeared. No head at all here - NONE. Color is a perfectly transparent light yellow/gold.

Smell - Hmmmm, light biscuits, faint sweet apples and pears.

Taste - Same as the nose, very light apples and pears, some crispy biscuit is in there too. You can taste alcohol at the end of the sip. Flavors are very light and watered down. Almost tastes like watered down sparkling apple juice with a shot of vodka added.

Mouthfeel - Very thin and watery, medium+ carb adds some nice tingle and crispness, but all of this is very light.

Overall - It's better than bud light, and the flavor really isn't all that bad for what this is. I don't get the corn/adjunct flavors in this at all, it's actually quite light and crisp, and the flavors are definitely pear and apple - but again they are Very light. Ultra drinkable, almost goes down like water. If you want a cheap, lo-cal buzz that has very light crisp apple n biscuits flavor, then try this.

A - Clear straw yellow in color. Head is white and soapy. Its gone fast. No lacing.

S - Light corn malts and metal.

T - Like lemon flavor sparkling water with alcohol added. Very tasteless.

M - Good mouth feel. Goes down smooth and has a decent crispness to it. This seems to be about right.

O - This one seems more flavor less than the regular for some reason. This is too easy drinking.

look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

Look: clear, golden colored beer with a tiny bit of white head
Smell: very faint, if anything... what's there smells a little like vodka
Taste: the only thing going for it here is that it's so weak, you can't tell it's terrible. faint notes of corn and alcohol.
Feel: pretty easy to drink, if getting drunk fast is what you're going for

Overall: Not good. Not at all... but it's cheap, light, and 6% alcohol, so if I'm missing college again I'll probably buy more of it anyway.
