1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This beer is not the worst light i’ve had or the best. With that being said, i can begin to bash it. Fake aroma of corn and rice water. A fizzed head that dissolves quickly and leaves a somewhat gold beer behind. Fake flavor of rice and starchy corn. It does taste somewhat like a "small beer" but thats maybe cuz of the alcohol content. I do thank Firestone Walker for putting it out, beacuse not to many consider the light drinkers population.

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pale yellowy appearance, moderate carbonation, moderate head formation. Sweet malt and grain aroma, slightly grassy, mild hops. Very light in flavor, grainy, mild sweetness but dry. Aroma is a surprise, flavor is as crappy as you’d expect. Firestone’s a pretty good brewer, so I’m surprised they agreed to brew this, even without their name on it. Shouldn’t they be promoting good beer?

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a nice crisp looking gold color. Smells of hops, which was a surprise. Tastes kind of sweet with a sort of tea like aftertaste. Smooth and easy to drink alot better than Michelob Ultra, that’s not saying a whole lot but what do you want from this kind of fake beer.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Actually not that bad for a Low carb beer, to look at..typical macro yellow bubbly head.
The smell is atrocious though..rotten potatoes and burnt grass..with some soap in the background.
Thankfully the taste( lessness) was not as bad as the aroma, this is seltzer water with a splash of beer.
Nasty on the palte..initially full of bubbles then a weird sticky nastiness in the back of the mouth.
Like all low carb beers this is awful..a crime against hops and malt everywere.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Clear, yellow with a foamy white head - yech, looks a little too much like urine... Aroma is very mild, dominated by hops with a very light bready smell as well. Flavor is just plain bad, that is if you want to call it flavor - it's all bitter and astringent. This is what I imagine it might taste like if you took the water used for the 2nd rinsing of the fermenting tank of an SNPA or comparable, dry-hopped it, then fermented and bottled it again. Watery body and aggressive carbonation. Bleah...

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
This beer is pretty much like every other low carb product i've tasted, just plain gross. It is slightly better then their pale ale, at least you can taste SOMETHING here. It pours very yellow with an almost nonexistant head. It's faint aroma is that of light malt, and it's flavor has a bit of an alcohol taste, and slightly salty. It's very fizzy like the pale ale, but a tad tastier. It's finish is short and metallic. I don't think i would drink this beer even if I was on a diet.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
The beer after departing the bottle is a transparent deep amber color with the head monstrous in size, semi-creamy in texture and the color a very light tan, lace is a thick patchy sheet upon the glass. Nose is all malt, lightly sweet and fresh, crisp, start is sweet, nicely malted, the top skeletal in feel to the palate. Finish is stern in its acidity, the hops pleasant and mild, the aftertaste quite dry, not as bad as I feared, not something I’ll ever drink again, but for those into “Light”, a decent beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. A light yellow bordering on clear color with a big foamy white head. A dusty aroma with a light crisp (at least when it is cold) flavor. As it warms it faids into a cardboard musty flavor that shoud be left to those on a diet.
