341 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear ultra pale gold with thin, quickly disappearing white head. Smells like... a glass of water? Honestly, only the vaguest hint of grains. I suppose I could at least be thankful the aroma’s not offensive. Now the taste... How do you make something that is both remarkably thin and watery yet fairly unpleasant for the taste it does have? Ask John Sleeman because underneath all the water there are some stale grains. Even the carbonation is underwhelming. This is like flat club soda that someone farted in. It’s with great confidence that I give this beer the lowest score I’ve given anything yet. At least I can continue on my quest to find that elusive 0.5. pintbypint (3733) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2005
330ml can. Pale straw in colour. Head is sparse. Hard to get an aroma off this - maybe hay and grass. Almost devoid of all flavour - pretty much carbonated water. It’s clear all right, clear from those intrustive beer like flavours of hops and malt. northropfrye (3662) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
Brutal. The palest, wateriest, shittiest beer I’ve ever had. A complete and utter disrespect to beer. cfrancis (3514) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2009
No flavour, no characteristics. I would only drink it if it were free and even then I’d be thinking my own piss might be more tempting. Metalchopz (3447) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
Second generation of this low carb beer. Pours a light golden colour with a frothy white head that has better retention than expected with active carbonation from the medium-sized bubbles. Cereal grain malt scent with some sugars, cardboard and mild chemical hops. The taste is pretty much the same with a mineral water feel. Had a few of these from the 6-pack real cold on a hot night, and it did the job for a light lager. Now, testing room temperature and cereal-hay malts come out a little more. Still, watery overall, but nothing offensive.

Originally rated July 2006. Sleeman’s brew to fit the low carb market pours a pale yellow colour with a soapy white head that leaves minimum lace. It quickly dissipates and carbonation is active with average-size bubbles. Very weak aromas of grain malt with a fizzy and watery mouthfeel. The taste, like the rest is not offensive, but does not show up much. Close to Labatt’s Sterling. Molson’s Ultra is the best low carb out of the three big guns of Canada.
Can from the LCBO. Very pale yellow with a large white head that disappears frighteningly fast. Aroma of... uh, nothing, basically. Perhaps a hint of something vaguely beer-like, but it’s fleeting at best. Body is light and fizzy. Flavour - there’s none. At all. Not even a smidge. Seriously, it’s like drinking club soda. Unbelievable. I should start selling carbonated water with some yellow food colouring as "low carb beer" - I could make a killing! Viper666 (3289) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2010
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur jaune-dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle sucrés avec des notes de maïs sucré avec des petites notes de légumes bouillis. Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture aqueuse. Léger goût de légumes bouillis lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement d’un léger goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés avec des petites notes de maïs sucré puis en finale l’on retrouve des traces de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé). Post-goût très court, aux faibles notes herbeuses. Palidor19 (3190) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Very very nasty, This is not what a beer should be. artifical tastes with corn and bad adjuncts. Rottening Vegatables as my friend stated. Avoid at all costs DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2003
Skunky, grassy aroma, pale yellow, small fading white head. Hint of corn flavour. Watery. Clearly Bland! Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2004
oh dear. My first low carb experience. I suppose I might try the others just to compare but this was honestly the worst beer I have ever tried. I don’t understand this trend at all – I mean, we didn’t see low fat beers 5 years ago did we?
