   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 4/20
Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, grain), trace hops (herbs), with a note of DMS. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Even fewer carbs than Michelob Ultra, and almost as repulsive.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Itís a no-brainer as to why the store was selling this for only $2.99. Think cheap malt, corn syrup, and rusty tin cans, and youíll have a pretty good handle on what youíre smelling and tasting here. The clear pale yellow body with itís active carbonation and respectable head are the lagerís only redeeming factors.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2004
Straw color with a tall foamy white head. Grass and grain aroma with a hint of perfume. One sip reveals a plethora of flavors, with not many of them being associated with beer. Cardboard, paper, oatmeal, resin and bitter caffeinated water. Stop the insanity. Smells worse as it warms.

JK (4283) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Very much a Euro lager in the aroma and flavor. It really isnít bad, for what it is. Low carbonation. Yellow and only a thin lace of white foam on top of the beer. Light and actually very drinkable. One of the best light, pale lagers I have found. But weird corn and chemical aromas start to come out as it warms, so drink this cold.

ClarkVV (3856) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 31, 2005
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 2004 bottle. Nose is flowery, light sugars, spring water...... Roman baths..... Color is remarkably clear, with a slight hint of light, light, light peach. Small head, rapidly dissipating. True to style, itís got that weird, low-carb sugar flavor to it, what is that flavor??? Highly filtered, thereís not much to this, but perhaps some yeast, or maybe Iím imagining that? Very simple but inoffensive, to me...... Extra-light bodied.......... good water substitute. . .

Butters (3684) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Bottle split with barrios at woodyís. Pours a clear light golden straw color with minimal ring of big bubble white head. Nose of sickly sweet corn and grain with a notes of honey and vanilla. Flavor is cardboard, tannens, metallic, and some sweet vanilla graininess. Pretty disgusting. Watery thin body with moderately high carbonation and a harsh metallic finish. Pass this one up.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 Surely the Europeans havenít caved in to the marketing ploy that is sweeping the US like a bad Boy Band (is that redundant or what?). Please tell me the distinguished European palate has not been tainted by the plague that is Low Carb. Low Carb beer is like flag football; sure, technically it's football but címon, without pads and overpaid athletes hitting each other, itís not worth the ticket price. The aftertaste on this mess would be better used as speaker wire itís so coppery. Only slightly better than other "Low Carb" beers, but thatís like saying NíSync is more talented than The Backstreet Boys. Avoid.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Pale yellow. Thin, patchy head. Fizzy and very watery. Light body, but it was curiously filling, and after just one beer I felt bloated. Bottle cap was the first thing I tasted. It was followed by a yeasty-doughy flavor/aroma. Small element of wet rag. Very mild bitterness brought on by bland, one-dimensional hops. In this case, I think Iíd prefer a totally flavorless low-carb beer to this one.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 2, 2004
Another dismal entry in the lo-carb beer wars. Saying it's better than the Aspen Edge lo-carb brew I just had is faint praise indeed. Let's just say there is a faint essence of barley here that serves to remind you that you're drinking beer, as opposed to seltzer water. The color is a solid, beery gold, which suggests some sort of coloring additive. Watery, watery. Not as good as Rolling Rock Green Light or Michelob Ultra.

Musty Cardboard Aroma...Sweet. Like Eating Cardboard..Dry and Tasteless. Why Does Diet Beer Equate to NO TASTE?!
