Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with small frothy white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is corn malt and skunk. Thin mouthfeel with a light corn malt flavor. Not much going on with this one.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours an extremely pale straw yellow body with a very minimal white head that faded to a wispy thin film. The nose is pretty minimal, just a bit of grassiness and light adjunct grains. The flavor is almost non existent, very watery and thin with some light corn on the finish. No bitterness to speak of here. Light bodied and watery with light fizzy carbonation. This is about as weak and boring as you can get, yet still better than many macro light beers.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle. 2.3%, whoa... This is almost an NA beer. Labeled as "less than 3.2%" on the bottle. Thin white head, that fizzes away to minimal. Clear yellow color. Kind of a sweet taste, with a skunky bite. Hay, salt, bread aroma. Bitey carbonation. Dry finish. Weird pepper aftertaste. Some acidity. I’d probably suggest this for somebody seeking low-ABV or super-light beer, but of course, it can’t compare to real beer. Has a slight gluten-free-esque character to it. By no means high-quality, but definitely better than other American macro light beers and it does what they do better -- it’s way lighter.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2012 You can turn up your nose at this stuff if you want, but if it is a foregone conclusion that you’re going to drink an extremely light beer, this is probably your best choice. Yes, it’s watery, but at least it has some beer flavor and some hoppy overtones. And unlike other less-than-100-calorie choices, it contains about as much alcohol as a standard beer. Comparing it to 150-calorie beer is like comparing a Weight Watchers meal to a four-course steak dinner. Of course it’s not as good, but everybody knows that. That’s not the point. If you want to get rid of the beer belly without giving up beer, this is an acceptable tradeoff.
**************** Comment added after original rating: OK. Mea culpa. I’ve had a couple more bottles, and you’re right. It’s awful. I’d rather keep the beer belly.
