(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear amber with a creamy, off-white head. Vague aroma of nuts and caramel. Medium body with fairly delicate accents of caramel. Lightly sweet. No aftertaste. But not too bad really. 060406 bhensonb (15603) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Amber color with a fizzy white head that left in tens of seconds. Light caramel aroma. Near medium with fizzy, near creamy, carbonation. It has caramel flavor. Arguably just a touch of hop bitter. It goes down surprisingly well. Finishes caramel with a little grain, and hop that has to be imagined - there is some bitterness. It’s actually refreshing when it first hits the mouth; the finish is a bit too herby/grainy. Still, this may be the best American macro. I certainly can’t remember thinking good things about a mainline A-B brew until this one. Ratman197 (15204) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of grain, bread and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, as bit of graininess and a hint of citrus with a crisp clean finish. Tmoney99 (14850) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Bottle at Montgomery Inn Boathouse. Poured a clear brown with an average white head that diminished slowly and had small lacing. Light toasted malt aroma. Light body with a thin texture. Light balanced sweet flavor with a short finish. Small improvement over Ultra. BeerandBlues2 (13697) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy, off-white head, diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (meal, cereal, grain), light hops (grass), average yeast (sweat, dough) with notes of cardboard. Light bodied, thin texture, soft carbonation, and a metallic finish. Short duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

Dad handed me a bottle, so what are you gonna do. The beer is a clear golden color with a compact white head that gives up the ghost quickly. Minimal lacing. Faint grainy malt aroma. Light seltzer water body with light grain and malt flavors. The finish is absolutely flavorless unless you call bubbles a flavor. Truly a beer for people who do not like beer. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a transparent pale golden amber with a spare white head. Aroma of grass, plastic, and grain. Flavor of lightly toasted grain and some grassy hops with a watery, thin mouthfeel. slowrunner77 (12581) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
"the "malty, toasted aroma" the brewer describes is there, i suppose, just really hard to find. for what it is, it can be enjoyed, but not if you’re expecting much. A touch darker and maltier than Ultra, but about on the same level...maybe a tad better."

12 oz bottle-Thanks decaturstevo’s wife Jo-pours a white head and yellow color. Aroma is mild grain, some spice hops. Taste is mild sweet grain/cereal, some spice hops. shrubber85 (11570) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2006 Bottle. A very light sour barley malt aroma. Medium amber color with decent head at first but quickly goes away. Lightly sweet malt flavor with a slight hint of hops. Actually a pleasant surprise - much more flavor that most light beers and actually has more flavor than some of the BMC regular beers - the only light (calorie) beer I’ve ever had that beats it was Gambrinus Dia but good luck finding that outside of Czech. A good effort by A-B in making a drinkable low carb beer.
