Tall bone white head, no retention. Pale straw pour with lots of carbonation. Looks like ginger ale. Aroma is actually really offensive. Sour corn and hot garbage. Flavor is almost shockingly absent. Thereís a familiar touch of sour malt that reminds you of the flavor of other crappy lagers, priming you to expect more of that, but it never shows up. The flavor that is present is so bad that it makes me a bit relieved that thereís not more of it. Seriously, the finish is just nothing, completely nonexistent. Thereís a faint touch of berries showing up; blueberry, raspberry. This makes it all the more reminiscent of a seltzer water. Pretty damn bad, but like I said, the lack of flavor might actually improve it.

Reviewed from notes but had this more than enough times in a pint glass to say something here. The appearance was a clear light yellow to amber color with no head no matter how fast the pour or no matter how slow the pour is. The smell had nothing and has never had anything. The taste was basically watery in every aspect of it. On the palate, it sat exceptionally light. The carbonation seemed appropriate for the style but really didnít show much potential for anything else. Overall, well, AB once again did what they wanted to. Thanks for making it for a tick/review.

Pretty much just watered down Bud Select. Less body and almost no flavor or aroma on it.

Looks promising. Thatís about it. Tastes like watered down Bud Light Had in 12 oz cans. Weak taste and very low abv content. just over 2%. if you want to look like a bad ass at a party, this is the beer for you. if you like the taste of beer, donít even bother with this.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw gold body with a short lived fizzy white head. The nose is all corn with not a whole lot else going on. The flavor is weak and very watery with corn and a bit of pale malt I suppose. Finishes fairly clean for a Pale Lager, but itís probably because itís just so watery. Light bodied and fizzy with lots of carbonation. Still, itís better than many of Budís offerings.

Absolutely nothing to say about it. Had it after a hot walk. It was refreshing as a cold beverage but that is it.

Backlog. Pours pale yellow. Nose and taste of light barley water and touch of corn/skunk. Thin watery body. Not much going on.

Rated on 3-19-2010 (Bottle with a born on date of 07 Sep 09. This beer pours a small very fizzy white head that quickly dissipated, transparent yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is corn and grainy. The taste mimics the aroma. The palate is tingly and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer has no character. Next!!

This beer is pretty darn terrible, but on the other hand pretty impressive at only 55 calories. Thatís the only good thing to say about this beer really.

Bottle: my girlfriendís family likes to drink this on holidays, so Iíve had more than a few bottles. Amber body, great clarity, nearly no head. Aroma... barely there. Sweet grain, corn, slight skunk, sulfide? Taste is boring, watery, thin; slight touch of toasted, old grains, must, & steel with a skunky finish & super high carbonation. Iíve started making sure to bring my own beers.

(Backlog) This is NOT a beer...this is a disgrace. The smell is weak, grains and corn water. Taste is weak and watery.
