Can, graciously shared at the July Santa Cruz tasting. Pours a sickly yellowish straw color, evoking images of corn cob aged hose water, with a sputtering gray head. It could be power of suggestion with the laughable purple can, or it could be a really weird gross fermentation, but I’m getting some distinct grape notes on the nose. Beyond that, maybe some rotting grains. Flavor thankfully eases up on the fruit solvent and retreats into your basic dirty pale lager with dusty corny grains and a vanishing unsavory finish. Carbonation is surprisingly low for the style, giving a tap watery impression. No reason to ever drink this even for free. Well, the tick is worth it. Etrimm1987 (21) - Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Why do they make this? It is so terrible that if I was able to give it a negative score I would. I feel sorry for the college students where I normally see this sludge at. Their should be a Congress hearing on what can be consider beer, because their are alot of trash beers like this that prey on students who don’t know any better.

Only reason I rated it so high was because I paid less then 0.50 for a 24 oz can. They also had a 30 pack for less than 9 bucks. BAD, BAD, BAD brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 11, 2011
A: This one pours a pale straw color with a minimal white head forming. Already not living up to Beer 30 Ice...
S: Rotten vegetables is the best way I can think to describe this aroma. A bit of garbage and paper is also there. Sure, plenty of corn, sugar, and metal, too.
T: Very corny and vegetal. Lots of sweet apple juice flavor and a nice metallic note. Mildly sour and lemony. Though not intense, the flavor is certainly abrasive.
M: Light in body with a medium to high carbonation.
O: Somehow, worse than Beer 30 Ice. CaptnDerp (2) - Alabama, USA - APR 15, 2011 does not count
Smelled like blood. Tasted like blood. I felt like I contracted a venereal disease after drinking it. Stay far away.

Pours pale yellow with a modest white head and a nondescript aroma. There isn’t enough flavor to describe. Very close in taste (or non-taste) to its cousin Beer 30 Ice. ronaldtheriot (1994) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - APR 11, 2011
This is one of the oddest beers I’ve ever sampled. Beer 30 Light has a thick, egg-shell colored head and a clear, golden appearance, with some bubbles streaming up and little-to-no lacing left behind. The aroma is an unusual sour green apple smell with other hard-to-place, even industrial, scents. Taste is predominately sour green apple, with other flavors I can’t place. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Beer 30 Light finishes crisp, oddly refreshing, and dry. Overall, this is an interesting beer, if nothing else. It has to be tried to be understood, and I still can’t figure it out (after only a single sampling, I might add).

Budget light beer. What can you expect. This goes down smooth and doesn’t make you gag so I guess thats alright! hoptimus_prime (73) - Utah, USA - FEB 18, 2011

Lucky!!!! The discount grocery got some cases. 99 cents. Only had to buy one 24 oz can. Pours very pale gold with a slight fizzy white head. Typical corny aroma. Not really sweet tho, so not too bad. Little if any hop. Flavor is very thin. Don’t get any bitter at all at all. Actually thirst quenching. Sort of like drinking a lightly flavored drink of some kind. Actually that’s what it is. Clean, I’ll give it that.
