.Man, this is going to drive my New Brunswick ratings down even further! Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & blankboy -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Horrible skunk aroma before the cap was fully twisted off. Quite possibly the closest thing Iíve encountered to actual skunk. Very pale yellow (bordering on water like). Watery taste with slight hint of light malt sweetness. Blah, I actually donít mind Moosehead when faced with a dearth of choices (and I would take it over a Molbatts, Brick, and even Sleeman any day) but this is just bland. And spoiled

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma is...guess...címon, hereís a hint: itís a green bottle...SKUNKY?...thatís right, you got it, congrats!! Totally skunky with a touch of grain and yeast. The flavour, thank goodness, was not as skunky but it was really light and bland, in fact there wasnít much flavour at all. I detected some grain and corn. I will happily never have this again -- yay!

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2005 Bottle (341ml - green). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev - my bottle. MY 250th RATING - joy. Poured pale gold with a thin head. Aroma? - skunk, my friends - muskrat, swamp cabbage SKUNK. Just when we thought the bottle was "ruined", the flavour was not skunky - itís supposed to smell like that? Flavour of light corn malt, icing sugar, sour damp grass clippings - starts annoyingly sweet, finishes slightly bitter, harsh on warming. Mouthfeel - pretty much nothing; water. Best thing I can say is that it doesnít taste as bad as it smells - gotta literally hold your breath when you quaff.

355ml can. Very pale straw colour, small fine bubbled white head. Really hard to pick out any aroma, light grain if anything. Light dryish flavour, crackery. Slight grains in finish. Better than BMC "lites".

pours a pale golden, a big sloppy fizzy head, the aroma is unpleasant i dont just think they added water to moosehead, because moosehead is drinkable, and so is water, but not this beer, this sucks. taste is of corn and water. ehh i was very disappointed with this.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2005 The first light beer Iíve ever tasted. Iíve always had reservations about light beers, I see this as more of a marketing gimmick then beer and this confirms it.

Nekronos (3647) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 25, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 It has that second flavor I donít like, I donít like light beers in general, I think it is the corn in the beer that supplies that flavor. I think it is in other beers too.
