Oh my word. Tasted like it was strained through stale cardboard. I don’t think cardboard is on ratebeer’s list of flavor descriptor, but after tasting this beer, I suggest that they add it. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Appearance: clear as clear can be, pale, pale yellowish shade, under a thin white head of foam.
Taste: also, none, at all, whatsoever...I’ll try harder...there’s so little behind this that to discern it at all takes the keenest insight and a microscopic purview. Do I have what it takes? It comes and goes in such a blur! A taste of wet cardboard, faint vegetation, ...really, nothing at all.
Not as bad as some of the worst American "lite" beers I’ve had the misfortune to sample, but still a big bottle of zilch!
At least it’s low carb, right?
F’gettaboutit! Eat balanced meals, skip junk food, get out and move once in a while, then treat yourself to a real beer! Stuff like this is an embarassment!
Best thing I can say about it, is it was free!

Only way I can describe this beer is coppery. At least it’s better than the Michleob ultra light my fiance seems to like (i’m trying to ween her off of it). KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 Surely the Europeans haven’t caved in to the marketing ploy that is sweeping the US like a bad Boy Band (is that redundant or what?). Please tell me the distinguished European palate has not been tainted by the plague that is Low Carb. Low Carb beer is like flag football; sure, technically it's football but c’mon, without pads and overpaid athletes hitting each other, it’s not worth the ticket price. The aftertaste on this mess would be better used as speaker wire it’s so coppery. Only slightly better than other "Low Carb" beers, but that’s like saying N’Sync is more talented than The Backstreet Boys. Avoid. obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 29, 2004
Pale gold with light head. Smell (not aroma) of corn. Flavor light sweetness with a quick finish. I almost taste hops or fruit of some kind. Out of all the Low-carb choices I still think this has the most redeeming qualities. At the very least it isn’t repulsive.

Gwaa, this is shit beer if I’ve ever tasted it. I grabbed this bottle by accident. No sane person would make a conscious choice to drink this swill! thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Straw colored, maybe lighter, no head. Smells of quinine, some sourness. Floral. No real flavor at all. Tastes like quinine, tangy. Tinny. Crappy. I cannot believe this is from Belgium. This sucks. JPDIPSO (6300) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 26, 2004
Straw color with a tall foamy white head. Grass and grain aroma with a hint of perfume. One sip reveals a plethora of flavors, with not many of them being associated with beer. Cardboard, paper, oatmeal, resin and bitter caffeinated water. Stop the insanity. Smells worse as it warms. austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 2, 2004
Another dismal entry in the lo-carb beer wars. Saying it's better than the Aspen Edge lo-carb brew I just had is faint praise indeed. Let's just say there is a faint essence of barley here that serves to remind you that you're drinking beer, as opposed to seltzer water. The color is a solid, beery gold, which suggests some sort of coloring additive. Watery, watery. Not as good as Rolling Rock Green Light or Michelob Ultra. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Pours out nearly clear but settles in the glass a very light pale yellowy sunrise haze, a stark white bubbly and loose head tried desperately to grow only to burst before it was to stay. Aroma is dry, clean, and crisp with a slight bready maltyness that has a bit of a bagel-like sweetness. Taste does offer up much, but are we looking for it here? No not really, still could have something to it; but its a mess of watery weakened malten sweetness with just a bit of light dryness, clean as water as it is nearly water. There's an attempt to pull some things through but its unwelcome and boring. The feel is quite empty, fairly thin throughout and watery, an attempt at carbonation is noticed as well but again not in a welcoming manner. Lifeless, barely a beer, but I can actually see drinking this if I were out on a very hot, muggy day and just needed something to quench my thirst.
