1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle… Clear straw-colored lager with a small, fragile, white head. Very reserved, grainy, buttery aroma. Seltzer-water mouthfeel and flavor. Perfectly balanced. Minerally and bland. Crisp, clean finish. I can’t really knock it, because it doesn’t really taste bad at all… it doesn’t really taste at all.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear bottle, clear pale yellow, minimal label, twist-off cap earns this a big uno for appearance. Stinky parched corn aroma. Flavor is the same - dry, minimally bittered, fizzy. Musky aftertaste which is mercifully short. Overall, just fizz. I’d never buy this, and only drink it if it was the last thing in the cooler under a sweltering sung. Maybe if I was on a fishing boat with nothing else.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
THOUGHTS: You’ve heard of barley wines, well this is barely beer. It was sort of like seltzer water with a shot or two of beer. No flavor at all when very cold. The most flavor you get from this is equivalent to what you normally get from a regular light beer burp. Plus the name makes me think of my old Nintendo 64, not beer.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a very light, clear yellow with a small, white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma was not awful, just barely there. There was light grain, very light grassy hops and corked corn. The initial flavor was very lightly sweet; while the finish was very lightly bitter with a short duration. There was water and seltzer; and hints of malt, honey and hops. The light body was watery with very fizzy carbonation and a finish like seltzer water.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
2009-02-19. Very pale yellow body with a tiny white head that fades fast. Disgusting aroma is a melange of odd unpleasant bits. Phenols, alcohol, odd grainy character. Flavour is blessedly muted and dilute after the assault on the senses that was the aroma. Rough notes of what I imagine the smell of bags of garbage must taste like, thin washed out grains. Awful. Seriously? At least a brown bottle might have made it inoffensively bland. Bottle shared by GregClow/Swoopjones

Wow, this beer sucks. I’ll take 64 calories or a good beer anyday vs this whole bottle. No taste, aroma is malts and crap. Not much to it, extremely light.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Ah, a new classic... mega-bubbly, thinly yellow body that reminds me of liquid corn... head dissolves to soapsuds almost immediately... malty, almost with the sweetness of malt liquor--lacking in substance... thin, fuzzy palate... approximates water in its consistency--drinkable, yes.... watery cornflake and thinning malt leaves the tastebudswanting of flavor... MGD brags of its 64 calories--and rightfully so--but that would be the ONLY benefit to fisting this thin, whistle-wetting too-easy-drinking lawn mower companion... this review could be subttitled "Ballad of a Thin Beer," in honor of Bob....

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
23 oz draft at BW3 (Frankfort, Il). Drank just to try, strictly. Pours a transparent yellow with a decent lacing white head, surprisingly. Aromas are light, grainy and adjunct and faint. Initial is watery, faint, light adjuncty grain and subtle. The best description for this on tap is water. Not really bad, no skunk or off taste, but water. Debatable that this is a beer sometimes.

super pale, no head. taste of corn and water. But its so watered down that it is at least inoffensive. I mean, you cannot rag on water, right?

Typical macro......yellow, fizzy, corn and light.....this has to be the most watered down beer I have ever had. this is close to the O’duols. Wow....power drinking. This will be fun just to see how many I can drink!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear 12 oz bottle with twist off cap courtesy of Maniac :) Light grainy sweetness in aroma. Brilliant clear light straw with small rocky white head and very high carbonation. Very light sweet toasty grainyness with a very clean dry finish. Fizzy mouthfeel with slight carbonic bite. No hint of corn is a plus. Carbonic papery mouthfeel is a minus. Kinda like drinking soda water.
