ChainGangGuy (4374) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Appearance: Pours a brilliantly clear body with only a touch of yellow hue to it and topped with a short-lived, white head. Smell: Surprisingly weak nose with only the merest hints of sweetish ultra-pale malts. Taste: Altogether light pale maltiness with a hint of grain and mild cereal sweetness. Almost no hop character or bitterness. Finishes quick and clean. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Oh, itís definitely light, er...leicht. Sometimes I just donít get the light beers - when itís so far removed from beer and is more akin to water, why not just skip those pesky 99 calories and go for the water? Ah well.

Pours a crystal clear faint watery yellow color with white head. Aroma is grain, vanilla, a touch of honey, and some floral hops. Flavor is some grain, some vanilla, maybe some honey, and delicate floral finish.

Man is this terrible. Skunky from the start. Lots of cereal grains present in aroma/flavor. Blah.

DrnkMcDermott (2799) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Well, itís a nice label design. Immediate skunk when poured, but it goes away, must have just gathered in the headspace. Very, very pale color, thin white head. Taste is mostly corn that seems to have soured. Bacteria? Maybe. This was from the loose bottle shelf, so maybe a little old, but yikes, it just tastes like spoiled lemonade.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle. Body-thin gold with a ring of bubbles. Nose-very cheap macro, sewage. Taste-chemical, fake, burnt plastic, bad aftertaste, bile, vomit, a very bad cheap beer. Just a really bad beer.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Bottle fro Party Town, KY. Poured a straw color with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly and actually produced lacing. Light sweet grainy aroma. Light body with soft carbonation. Light sweet smooth flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. Wet cold alcohol with a little character.

jkwalking05 (3753) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2009
Very pale yellow in color with a small white head. Aroma is lightly fruity and malty. Flavor is the same, but both are weak. It is however better than the light offerings of and of the big three.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 16, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours extremely pale yellow, and very clear. Fizzyand short lived head. Smell is like a thin pale lager, faint corn malt. Taste is kind of cornish. Not a particularly clean flavor with prickly carbonation. Very thin and watery. Not great, but still drinkable. A better light than the macro brews.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Medium gold body with lots of fast moving bubbles. There is a bright white head on top. The aroma is metallic canned tomatoes with some rotting apples. There is a little bit of hay. the mouth feel is very off putting with way too much carbonation. There is a sharp raw Russet potato character in the flavor. A little bit of peanut shell comes through. This is pretty awful.
