I'm not quite sure what supernatural power persuaded me to buy a six pack of this stuff. That being said, here's what I have to say. It tasted like carbonated water with a pinch of beer in it. Feelt like soda going down. Made me feel bloated, and isn't it supposed to be "low carb"?

Of all of the low carb beers I tasted, this might be the best. I should stress however that this is the best of some very bad beers. Very pale watery colour. Some hops present in the nose, but very faint. Can taste corn adjuvants. AVOID!

For a beer lover, this misses the boat;the taste and texture is too distant and bland. It does not fit in with the other beers that make Sleeman great.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2004 You might as well drink tap-water. At least it's free and there are ZERO carbs in water. This beer looks fine (for a light beer), and smells ok, but doesn't taste like much. What little flavor there is somewhat like wet cardboard.

Bottle. Ordered this because all but three of the tap lines at The Madison in Toronto were FROZEN in this minus 35 with the windchill weather. Not awful... Flavour is water and light as expected. Not much worse than any other light beer. What's the point really?

Like everyone said- watery. Little or no head, little or no carbonation- tasted and looked like a beer left for a few days. Not worth the low-cal trade off. Skip this one.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2006 Hard to believe this is beer. Tastes like stagnant water. This has to be one of the worst beers i have ever drank. The fact that it is low-cal does not cut it. Better off drinking tap water, its cheaper.

It pours a clear limpid yellow NOT necessarily NOT alike toilet water after relieving one's bladder. Aroma is reminiscent of a prodigious baby skunk with obvious defense potential. The taste is another story though, it's a complex mixture from the most distinct and unattainable sources of waters from 8 specific islands hidden to humanity until John Sleeman had a dream which revealed him the tremendous potential of their sacred water. Stuff of legend. Welcome to the top 10!

No head whatsoever. Smells of the tap water i used to clean my glass with damp grass. Taste: Perrier has more taste than this beer....and its cheaper!

As you would expect, this is beer-flavoured water. That's the downside. The upside is, anywhere you'll find this beer, you're also likely to find a whole bunch of OTHER brands of beer-flavoured water, and at least this is low-calorie. Since most people tend to drink in excess after 8 p.m., you probably should be drinking this kinda crap if you're concerned about weight. Otherwise pop some carb blockers. Unfortunately, real beer is generally packed with what's essentially sugar.
