Looks watery, straw yellow, some clarity, almost no head. Aroma was kind of weird, like Splenda you put on grapefruit.

Taste was corn flakes, lots of carbonation for the mouthfeel. Almost no hops. Difficult to discern if this is beer. Some bitterness not from hops.

Kind of a wreck.

Best by 07 Jun 2016. Poured into my Flying Dog goblet.

L: Very light colored. Head dissipates rapidly
S: Smells like light beer plus some sweet fruity coconut notes. Smells pretty nice.
T: Sweet apple, coconut milk, pear.
F: Thin with sparkly carbonation. About halfway between light beer and champagne

This beer is currently rated at 65, equivalent with Heineken. That's crazy it's not nearly as bad as Heineken. I feel like most people didn't go into drinking this with an open mind but it's honestly pretty good. It's somewhat similar to pear or apple cider, but definitely has some flavors cider doesn't, and isn't so cloyingly sweet. It doesn't taste like any other beer I've ever had, and while it doesn't taste amazing or anything, the fact that it's decent combined with the fact that it's got a unique flavor that you're not going to get anywhere else means that I'd definitely suggest trying it.

Pours pale gold with small, rapidly diminishing white head. No malt character as expected, apple/grape fruityness aroma & taste. Strong carbonation. Not to my taste.

Pale gold in color with a light haze due to suspended miniscule sediment. There's a fingernail of dishwater white on top. Aroma is sweet corn like sorghum. It tastes like extremely sweet French apple cider. The mouth is very carbonated and thin.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle that expires 16 Aug 2015. Sampled on June 4, 2015.

Straw yellow, carbonated, heady pour. Thin color.

The aroma has a hint of toasted bready and malts and a bigger does of lemon. But the aroma is very thin.

Thin watery body.

The taste has little character. A bit of pale malts and toast and again with the lemon. But it reminds of a non-alcohol beer.
