Metalchopz (3095) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2012
Originally rated June 2005. Lively carbonation and golden in colour. Decent foam head dissipates quickly, but leaves sticky lace. Good, surprising, amount of malty aroma. Watery mouthfeel and carbonated. Flavour is very dull, not much there, except some slight sweet malt in the finish. Not a very good low carb brew, in the same boat as Sleeman’s Clear. If you want a better, mass-produced low carb beer, try Molson Ultra. That one has taste at least.

I had this ages ago when the low carb thing was a fad. I assumed it would be pretty bad and I wasn’t let down. Sweet beer flavoured water. It managed to be worse than Sleeman Clear and Molson 67, which is rather remarkable.

"Too light to even enjoy. Absolutely zero-gravity weight with a grass dominant aftertaste. I’m trying to cut down on carbs in my diet but this one was not the right choice. I prefer Big Rock Jack Rabbit over this one." - Tasting Notes, August 21, 2005.

***review from April 24, 2008***
Weakly coloured water that has almost no taste and less aroma. Highly carbonated. Weak Canadian big brewery malts. There is a bit of an aftertaste which is not that bad considering. Totally unsatisfying. On the positive side there is nothing disgusting about it... unless you spent your own money on it. A light beer that gets it done only on a level of being able to have a bottle of what appears to be beer in your hand.

POurs barely a yellow colro with a white head. Aroma was almost non existant but with hints of corn. Flavor was almost straigjh water, I didnt think anything could be more watery than coors light... i was wrong.

Pours a nice mellow golden yellow color. Aromas of mild malts, hops. Kinda skunky. Some hop bitterness and dry finish.

This beer doesn’t even deserve this but that’s what it got. Usual sweet urine beer in a glass.

341ml bottle.
Pours clear and golden with lots of carbonation and a small white head that fades to a ring. Aroma of dusty grains and metal. Watery sugar taste, like someone used half the recommended amount of "beer drink crystals".
