0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Holy crap - I’m not saying it displaces Cave Creek Chili Beer as my all time least favorite beer, but it might be next on the list. I don’t think I appreciated the term "skunky" as applied to beer until now - this actually smells like a skunk. For real. Clear pale yellow pour, no head after the initial pour settled. Taste is like carbonated mineral water. This is just gross.

This isn’t the worst tasting light beer Ive had that has been on the less than 99 cal mark, it just has no aroma which isn’t always a bad thing. has a watered down hops taste which is not bad.

This is one of the worst light beers Ive had. It has a very bitter taste and is way to carbonated.

12oz bottle poured clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Aromas were almost not present but some muted straw and german malt. Flavor was typical for german malted beer slightly dry and watery. Body was very light and finish was also dry.

Honestly didn’t smell or taste like anything, it was water with a very small detection of alcohol. Not sure of the point because there are other lower alcohol beers out there.

12 oz bottle. Pale-straw hue with no head or lacing. Aroma is of apple juice, while body is of Sprite. The brew definitely has a taste because it differs from water. Quite a disgusting drink. At least I did not buy it.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Reviewed from notes. Used to be one of my light beers of choice before being introduced to the wonders of Bell’s and Goose Island back in Chicago.
Pours a very light straw color with a moderate white head. Nose is quite faint with some miniscule amount of grassy, floral hops in the background alongside a faint grain presence. Grassy and grainy flavors dominate what is a really, really faint body--you can really tell from the taste that not much went into this brew. Feel is light and prickly. Goes down quite smoothly, and is better than its American comparisons in that it actually would be preferable to carbonated water, at least for me.

From a 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped - 09.2007-L25669M. I only bought this a few days before preparing this review and now I know why it was relegated to a closeout rack. I did not notice the 2007 date at the time. So any review will probably be tainted. It had a decent enough yellow pour wiuth a fizzy head. Green bottle skukiness danced with the bready maltiness in the aroma. The mouthfeel was extremely thin like water. The taste was bland and bready.

Father’s Fridge: Pours a pale gold color with a pale white head. Aroma of skunky German lager mostly intact. The taste is mostly of water... it does actually ’taste’ of water, rather than being simply watery. Still there is a faint whiff of hops somewhere deep in the vitiated background of this utterly and completely pointless beer for anyone who isn’t a recovering alcoholic or pregnant woman. This beer is not that horrible, but the trend that it started is. Bud Select 55 and MGD 64 both owe their existence to this German forefather.
