1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured a rather surprisingly deep color of yellow-orange (rich in color compared to Michelob Ultra). Sweet adjunct aroma, classic cheap-beer smell. The flavor was sweetish with a bit of malt, lots of carbonation, thin flavor with a moderately thin palate. After drinking about a third of the bottle, I set my glass on the table and walked away for a bit. When I came back there was a nearly-dead fly swimming in it. That grossed me out and I threw the rest of the glass away. Just as well, really.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This is some tasty stuff "Psych" I’m glad i managed to get a single of this instead of having to fork over the bucks for a sixer.Nice golden color,small white head that faded quickly.Thin aroma all around with a mild hint of malt maybe some fruit but hard to say...just coming off as bad right up front.Kind of like carbonated water up front with a light fruit presence that fades super fast and goes back to watery,leaving you with that,what the hell was that feeling.This is just poor all around and no doubt it will probably be a hit for low carbers it won’t with the majority of RBer’s.It’s worth trying once i guess but little else beyond that.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2005 In the bottle. This was the free beer offering at a high school graduation party. I thought I’d take the chance and try something that I would never ever ever purchase. Looks and pours just like it should- urinesque. The dominant flavor is sodium. Possibly sodium bicarbonate? Drink this cold, perhaps at liquid nitrogen temperature? If I could melt the glass bottle and drink it, I bet it would be easier on the palate.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This bottled brew from the BW3 in Fort Wayne, IN poured a small head of finely sized white colored mostly diminishing bubbles and left behind a poor lacing. The body was a carbonated transparent yellow orange color. The aroma was malty and hoppy albeit a bit mild. The mouth feel was mildly astringent tingly and bubbly from start to finish. The flavor contained mild notes of malts and hops. Definitely lacking in character, it still had more than other low carb beers I have sampled.

I tried this simply to obtain another rating. First off I was surprised how good this actually looked when poured into a shaker glass. Golden body and medium head. Nothing in the sense of flavor or aroma. Better than a Michelob Ultra if that helps anyone decide which one to try.

Had this one bottled in Lombard, Illinois. I can’t wait until this low-carb craze is over with, so we can dispense with crappy, watery beers like this one. Truly heinous.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Taste better than some light beers that I have had, but still nothing to rave about in my opinion. It poured a small white head with fine-small sized bubbles that mostly diminished. This beer was carbonated and semi-transparent with a pale yellow hue. The aroma was malty and the flavor was a little hoppy. This was a light bodied beer with some lacing.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled at a Bennignan’s. Coors Light Light is what this is. Tasted like a watered down Coors light. Nothing exciting about this one.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a typical color for an American light beer. 1/4" large bubble white head that lasted about 5 seconds. To me the taste is of that gross wheaty taste of most non-alcoholic beers. Might be OK for slammin at the lake on a hot summer day if someone else bought it but other than that I can pass.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Very similar to Rock Green Light - but maybe this has a little more flavor to it - you can almost "sense" the malt. Other than that, it’s overly carbonated soda water with hints of lemon
