1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix - Lake Ella - 12 oz bottle (actually blue.....jumped the appearance rating up from a 1 to a 2). Little to no head on the light golden pour. Twinges of metal in the aroma, some wet paper bag. Flavor has some honey sweetness, a bit of grassiness, some cereal-like graininess. Tastes like a malt liquor with the edges rounded off. Mouthfeel is a tad harsh. I can see this doing pretty well - "hey, itís Bud Light and itís stronger - just like Canadian beer!".

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2013 Gold pour with a fizzy white head. Head lasted for about 3 seconds. Awesome. Sweet grainy alcohol water with a lot of fizz, minimal if any lasting flavor in this one. A bit of citrus hops and just a touch of grape drink floating around if I really look for it. Maybe a bit sweeter than the regular, but I didnít notice much else side by side. Not sure how they pulled that off. Good beer, hope they make a chelada platinum version as well.

The aroma is rather offensive, lots of rotten corn and pee. The flavor contains some over cooked cabbage, tin foil, corn, and listerine. Im no beer snob I will happily drink a Miller Lite when in Rome but this is total junk. Bud Ice is delicious compared to this.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours a light golden color. Lacks a clean, crisp taste, but instead has a flat, slightly sweet aftertaste. At least it has more body than Bud Light.

Ok, so this is the latest and greatest thing to come from the Belgians? I kid. It smells weakly of lemony corn. Crystal clear yellow thin snow white head. cane sugar flavor with a lesser lemony tang, little malt or even cereal grain quality. Certainly no hops. Diluted overly sweet lemonade. Created for people who want a cheap drunk but donít like the flavor of beer. Bitch, please.

Interesting brew. Who exactly is this aimed at? The 6.0% alcohol content does the trick. Making this a session beer would not work unless you want to be totally drunk. Flavor is light-malt-liquor. Sweeter than regular bud light. No head, like bud light. Superior carbonation. Makes you think you can session this, but I am not fooled. Good "light" beer to enjoy two or three, but thatís it for me.

I bought a 6pk of this from Woodmanís in Janesville, WI for $6.39 in early 2012.
Pours a very pale yellow color almost like it is a glass of tainted water. A slight head but it disappears quickly. Not too strong of a scent, mostly just hints of cheap earthy grains. The taste isnít too bad. It has a sweet, easy, drinkable texture. Only a slight reminisce of beer in the after taste. Definitely would take this over a Bud Light or MGD 64.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle stamped 12015BK83. It poured a typical pale yellow with a short burst of white, fizzy head. The aroma did have a combination of malts, grains, sugras, and a hint of hops. The body was of medium weight and was creamy in texture. The taste was also grainy but it ended crisp and clean. There was something kind of citrus-like in there that I could not quite define.

Pours a pale yellow with a fizzy head that quickly disappears. Aroma of apples, grass, and corn flakes. Taste is sweet with a malty apple flavor. Very light and easy to drink. Not a clean refreshing beverage. Iíd rather drink Bud as this is too sweet for me.
