Pours pale, highly effervescent amber with a tiny film of a head sustained by constant bubbling, looks a little like an amber cider that somebody spit in. Aroma is old sweet corn (if it isn’t ice cold), metal and stale velveeta, very difficult to pick up any aroma at all, honestly. Flavor is mineral water, canned corn, metal, slate velveeta and a little salt, again difficult to pick anything up at all, beyond the light mineral notes that is. Honestly this stuff tastes like 1 part Miller Light to 6 parts sparkling mineral water. Palate is very watery highly carbonated and slightly dry to the finish, just like mineral water. If I had a cold and couldn’t see what I was drinking you could probably pass this off for carbonated mineral water to me. What’s the point? This is worse than Michelob Ultra, which I guess forces me to hand out my first 0.5 score. This is really, really aweful, knock it off A-B.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2010 Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. It’s water....fizzy straw yellow water that does not even need to be called a beer. The little flavor it has comes from very hard to detect hops. I would have been thrilled shitless to even taste a hint of grain. Oddly enough, there is an aroma to it, just slight hop aroma. There is absolutely no reason to drink this. People are wasting money when they buy this and the people that keep buying it are plain crazy. A beer for those who do not like beer but think they do. AB must be laughing their asses off from all the money this shit is bringing in....It’s just not right......

looks, smells, and tastes like beer. Bad beer I must say. I’d rather drink club soda. I see no reason to drink this. Who drinks beer for the lack of calories ? Seriously, this stuff tastes like shit.

Bottle from Cavie. The smell is weak, grains, corn, and nothing really. The look is clear and yellow with a small head. The taste is weak and grainy.

( 12oz bottle no thanks to Cavie) Pours very pale yellow, some bubbles. Nose of sweet corn, but pretty non-existant. Very watery and very little taste at all to detect any "flavors". Over carbonated. Not a bad beer per se, just not enjoyable in any fashion.

( 12oz bottle, Born on Date of 16 Aug 09, provided by Cavie… ) Pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of butterscotch, grain, and biscuit. Flavor of dough and water.

100th Pale Lager. But with only 2.4% this watered down ’beer’ should probably be a Low Alcohol. The thing is, it isn’t horrible. It pours a surprisingly dark golden yellow with an extremely quick white fizz. The aroma is thin macro lager standard fare of a pinch of corn with a dash of hops. After that it is water. The taste is sparkling water, with a bit of hopped malt extract. Inoffensive, so bland.

Wow. Now I know when a beer is bad people tend to blow stuff out of proportion just a bit saying stuff like "Dude, I’d rather get kicked in the balls than drink that again." or "Man that was the worst EVER." But seriously. No exaggeration here. If I blind tasted this next to a glass of sparkling water, I really question whether or not I’d be able to tell the difference. It is THAT watery. Tasteless. Truly tasteless. So I guess I can’t say that there is anything foul about it. But there is certainly nothing good about this brew either. Don’t bother unless you want a good laugh that is.
