I was apprehensive as this is low-carb beer, but it being 2.99/six pack I gave it a whirl. Ifind it very good especially good especially for being low-carb.

Had this beer on 8/4/2005. Aroma is a faint sweet malt scent. Color is bright crisp gold with good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is smooth, and sweet. Starting with a light body it goes down smooth with a creamy feel coming on. The finish in with this creamy feel turning a bit sweet and ending with a light fizz. Its a bit bland for my taste but I guess this is what you get from a low carb beer.

Bottle. Clear light gold with a soapy white head that diminishes fast, and decent carbonation. Nose: wheat bread, pepper, coriander and a touch of grassy hops. Taste: very light caramel malts and even lighter grassy/floral hops. Still it is the best low carbohydrate beer Iíve had.

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. . .

I have to give it some credit. Itís one of the better low-carb beers out there. Not sure why people were expecting a fulfilling, full body beer. It is diet beer for goodness sake. It does slightly resemble a belgium beer, just very much on the light side (big suprise).

Pours out nearly clear but settles in the glass a very light pale yellowy sunrise haze, a stark white bubbly and loose head tried desperately to grow only to burst before it was to stay. Aroma is dry, clean, and crisp with a slight bready maltyness that has a bit of a bagel-like sweetness. Taste does offer up much, but are we looking for it here? No not really, still could have something to it; but its a mess of watery weakened malten sweetness with just a bit of light dryness, clean as water as it is nearly water. There's an attempt to pull some things through but its unwelcome and boring. The feel is quite empty, fairly thin throughout and watery, an attempt at carbonation is noticed as well but again not in a welcoming manner. Lifeless, barely a beer, but I can actually see drinking this if I were out on a very hot, muggy day and just needed something to quench my thirst.

Pale gold with light head. Smell (not aroma) of corn. Flavor light sweetness with a quick finish. I almost taste hops or fruit of some kind. Out of all the Low-carb choices I still think this has the most redeeming qualities. At the very least it isnít repulsive.

A pale yellow fizzy beer if there ever was one. Pours a light yellow with a small white head. Doesnít taste like much. Rather dry, small presence in the mouth. Feels thin. Wonít be drinking this one again.

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.
