Thin boring grainy beer with some astringency. Grainy and overattenuated on the palate.

Abit more flavor than most low carb beers out there, but still bland. I would drink it though if I had too, just for the fact that it at least has a little flavor.

The best low carb beer I’ve tasted. Much superior to Amstel Light orMiller Lite.

Awful and on tap. Watery yellow color. Unfinishable. What are they doing here? Astringency and sweet.

Pours amber in color. Aroma is hoppy and sweet. Slight hoppiness in the flavor. Basically tastes like a watered down APA. Much better than a macro low carb beer, but still it is fairly bland.

My word , wonders never cease a low carb pale ale!..bought at Trader Joes. Pours a dark clear copper..with a huge frothy off white head, moderate carbonation. The aroma is very dull..some faint pils like hops and a sort of creamy smelling maltiness. taste is just plain nothing..slight hop..maybe a hint of malt sweetness..but its all buried by rampant carbonation. Not too good on the palte too watery and gassy. Its drinkable and it is probably the best low-carb beer I have had..but thats not saying much.

Bottle. Pours clear amber-orange color with a moderate white head that left good lacing - so far so good. Aroma is faint at best, barely discernable malt and more robust hoppiness - reminds me more of a lager than a pale ale. Flavor is dry and weighted to the hops with a lingering bitter finish. Light body and good carbonation. Not bad, but not so good either. More than expected for a low-carb though.

Orange color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is slightly malty and touch citrusy. A light bodied “low carb” Pale Ale. Malts are mild and slightly nutty. Very little hop flavor, but what is there is, is slightly spicy. Lively carbonation and it does retain some beer like qualities but it is kind of thin and watery. If I was stuck drinking a low carb beer, I guess this one would be OK. Crisp and refreshing, with no obvious flavor defects. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Okay, so it's not the best Pale Ale I've ever had but it's definitely one I enjoyed. I think that because it's name has "Low Carb" in it, it gives off a negative connotation. However, I found it to be very smooth with great clairty/color. Pleasant aroma as well. I'd definitely have it again. By the way, for those Atkins followers, the carb count on this one is 5.4 per 12oz.

This beer didn't even come close to what I was expecting. I haven't tried any other low carb beers, so I was hoping this would be decent. My hopes were dashed. It is a liquidy amber color with a very faint smell of cereal, and the taste is like eating some shredded wheat with a little water. Blech!!
