Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has notes of stale corn, a hint of grain and chlorine. Flavor is similar with stale corn and a bit of a chemical note. Quite thin as well.

Looks and smells like a American pilsner. Tastes like cold crisp water that has a twinge to it. 55 calories is not worth it. Best just to run a 5k and have a real beer.

My friend mike keeps stocking these in his bar. To this date I'm unsure why. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale gold color out of the clear bottle with a thin fizzy white head and a thin grainy nose. Flavors of cardboard, wet grains and something metallic. Lots of water in the flavor. Really not very good.

12 ounce single bottle from Total Wine. Pours a pale yellow color with no head. Aroma is corn like, hay. Taste is watery with a light beer taste. Good for hydration after working in the yard but nothing else. Blah.

12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear pale golden color. OK, I guess Iíll open the bottle now. Thin fizzy off-white head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma of skunky hops and mild caramel. Surprisingly decent. The taste is green apple and grain. Doesnít match the promise of the aroma, but it is about exactly what I expected. Thin and watery.

The malt character is barely detectable and Iím left wondering, did the brewer use malt. But alas, a small amount of malt has been used and this beer arguable has the cheapest grain bill of any brew on the planet. The color is pale golden yellow and un-cloudy...perhaps similar to a healthy urine specimen. Just a bit of hop bite, and next to the grain bill, the hop bill must be very inexpensive. When Iíve just knocked out a hot, dusty 20-mile trail run, this is my go-to beverage for re-hydration.

It is what it says it is. Super light beer. Donít know how they get the calories so low, but it does explain the watered down taste.

Had at a party, no aroma, no taste, no anything; if Iím reaching there is a faint twang of sweet corn and a bite from the carbonation. Itís not offensive, itís not terrible, but I have no idea why you would actually WANT to buy this; even if you on a diey just drink water, will get you about as drunk as this stuff.

Bottle after tennis. I guess it is nice to have after exercise and I donít expect much for the calories..it really was pretty bad.
