Nice light gold color with white cap and decent lacing.

Pleasant aroma with hints of spicy, critusy hops on a mild malt base.

Definitely a malt based lager with hop accents but the whole seems as if was watered down to hit a goal of 99 calories. It genuinely tastes good and genuinely seems watered down. Gotta take off some points for that.

Thin texture.

I guess it's for someone who want's a low calorie beer in a comparatively costly brand bottle. I would choose a standard AAL light beer over this even for cooking.

Pours a clear, straw color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong Euro yeast, strong pale malt, strong adjunct, hint of hops, and a sulfuric odor. Fits the style of a Light Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight citrus hops, strong pale malt, slight adjunct, and Euro yeast. Overall, much better body than aroma, good blend, but the sulfur notes in the aroma are the worst aspect.
