Swillfest ’04: It is clear, with barely any yellow at all. Slighty grassy, metallic aroma. Very wet and artificial-tasting, like the added icing sugar after pasteurization to beef up the body. It’s like creamy water with the aftertaste of peanuts.

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!

Low carb beer. Very different, Dry, little taste. A light sample of hops. Good for cooking, passable for drinking on a hot day instead of a soda. Very light color, almost water with a bit of foam and bubbles.

Well one thing is for sure: The beer is definitely clear. Light yellow-gold color with a thin and immediately gone white head. No lacing at all. The aroma is corny and a tad skunked. Soda-water body without much going on flavor-wise except some corn and off-flavored hops. The finish is clean and flavorless. I hope the other Sleeman beers are better than this.

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!

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?

This was really weird. You can get a whiff of grassy gas when you first slog this one out of the bottle, but there is virtually no flavour or body to this at all. It is the closest thing to soda water in a beer bottle that I have ever had.

[1560-20080801] 341mL bottle. Scorched fish guts aroma has hints of melted plastic corn. Super clear, light orange body with quick white bubbles. Grainy plastic flavour does not have anything good in it. Light body. Quite Unpleasant.

Pale gold, decent size head (good job Josh). Celery, garden vegetable like malt. Very light, thin body, finishing with some grassy notes with touch of citric fruit.
