Not bad for a low alcohol version. The colouration is excellent, perfect pale yellow. The smell is very wort-like, as too is the taste. Certainly tastes better that any .5% I have ever had. The drinkability isn;t so bad, could easily get through 4 or 5 of these before I decide its enough. Palate is medium thickness; odd, considering it is a low alcohol brew. Definitely a worthy alternative to insanely pathetic .5% in Ontario.

A low alcohol alternative. Not bad for this type. Looks and smells like a normal beer, normal head in pouring. Intended for an afternoon at the cottage when you need your head to drive to the beach and swim. But weak on the taste. Dry carbonated aftertaste.

Indeed, the ever hard to find point nine. Every time I ask for it, it's not available at the beer store. As if people buy this stuff regularly. Pale yellow pour with a short lived white fizzy head. Aromas of wet paper and pepper with corn. FLavours match the aroma profile to a tee, and then add more fizzy corn for good measure. What the goal is here I fail to see. Pretty bland.
