Select 55 Calories is the best tasting light beer out there. At only 55 calories it has just enough beer taste (and alcohol) to satisfy me. Sure, I have had more robust/malty tasting beers (with significantly higher calories) but even they get kind of "regular tasting" after a while. Since I like to have two beers each day with my dinner after a long day, Select 55 is the right choice for me.

Better than most ultras, and a good bargain for the calories. I would rather drink Mich but for way less calories, itís a good trade off.

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

Yep, a clear bottle. Smell is Ok, perhaps some tartness in the olfactory. Very light flavor with lots of sizzling carbonation. Very light indeed. I kinda liked the bud select as a lager but perhaps this is a little too light. Not bad tho, goes down very easy. Almost like soda water to an extent. At 2.4%, I bet you could drink this all day and not catch a buzz. A true sessional beer if you can put up with the lack of personality in the flavor. I truely am surprized that this is less than 3%! It does seem to have more bite than many other light beers. Virtually no aftertaste except for watered down pale lager. Enjoyable to an extent and it is rather refreshing for a change. A better tasting beer than most other lights.

Pale. Crisp, refreshing, rice. Not bad. For 55 calories itís much better caloric value then the other offerings from BMC.

Clear pale yellow, short lived thin white head. No lacing. Smell...carbon dioxide and a whiff of malt, Itís a diet beer. It tastes like nothing...seltzer water without the sodium. Itís nice and bubbly. Refreshing like club soda

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.

Tastes like water with a splash of beer in it.... but if you like to volume drink on day long parties etc... This is my go to... You get used to it and can drink 50 in a day... Yay
