I could not drink this. I would not even have bought it. I was given this abomination. I thought to myself, Just how bad can this really be? So I poured it in my mouth, and nothing. Itís not that this is offensive, itís nothing.

My buddy offered me a sip of this the other night, I think that was all I will need to review this one...

A - Pours pale straw yellow with a fizzy white half finger tall white head leaving no lacing down the glass.

S - Kinda stale. Very faint hops and lightly toasted malt. How do they get people to drink this stuff? It is terrible.

T - I guess people like drinking stuff that tastes this bad. VERY faint hops and light malt. All you can really taste is how watery it is, and that is not a good thing.

M - Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. This feels like I am drinking flavored water. Terrible.

D - Not good. How do you make a terrible beer even worse? You make Budweiser Select 55.

Transfer from BA review on 1-5-13- Poured from can into pint glass I have always wondered what these super low cal beers tasted like, so when I got this one for 50 cents with an expiration date of 2/2013 I thought it was time to bit the bullet and try one. Appearance ĖPours a medium golden color with a big billowy white head. The head fades very fast to leave almost no lacing. Smell- The smell is a bit offensive and consists of rice, paper, metal and a very light corn. Taste Ė The taste is overall very light (not too surprising). It starts out with a light bready and corn flavor. Some rice comes to the tongue more toward the middle along with a light paper taste. These flavors take the taste to its end where a tiny amount of citrus and tin comes to the tongue. In the end the tastes leave a watery and decntly clean feeling on the tongue. It was quite a bit more easy drinking then I would have expected. Mouthfeel Ė As expected it is quite watery with a medium level of carbonation. The watery nature is very appropriate for the very light beer style as it makes it very drinkable and refreshing, but a slightly higher carbonation may have suited the brew slightly better. Overall- While expecting the worst, it really was not much different than the standard light beer (maybe just a little less flavor). If you are really concerned about calories (well you probably arenít if you reviewing big beers on BA), then this may be a good option, but if like me you want something with a bit more robust flavor, then leave it on its own.

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.

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.
