Pours a light golden color with very little in the way of head. The head does cling to the glass though. I can't smell this beer at all. I'm not sure what to rate the smell, there's no option for 'no smell at all'.. 'Not impressed' will do I guess. The taste is sort of like plastic. Nothing there at all. The mouthfeel is very fizzy and watery. This stuff is like vodka & soda water. Except that would probably have more flavor. All in all, it's not all that drinkable. No more drinkable than straight soda water. The crazy thing about this beer is that it's got a nutritional info on the back of the bottle with the fat rating highlighted. As far as I know, there's not a whole lot of fat in any beer. Maybe milk stout has some, but as a whole, there's no fat in beer. Oh yeah, and the wife says it tastes like 'wet ass.'

Very boring, manages to taste like lemonade or soda or something, i'm sorry to all who are watching their calories and have to drink beers like these, must be torture. This is very simple.

i believe that this was the previously marketed Diet Ale.
A change of name and appearance but alas not a change in quality.
What can be said when a brewery , known for its flavourless products deliberately tries to take something that adds flavour out of a beer.
A dull bubbly yellow drink
