    I really wanted to like this. Really I did. Admittedly I didn't have a whole lot of promise, but I hoped it'd be good. Pours a darker brown than I was expecting, but the head was "fizzly" and didn't last long at all and left very little lace. It almost reminded me of a ginger-ale without the extra carbonation. Aroma is really bad. Its got an almost aluminum/metalic scent to it mixed with the malt. This is the worst part of the beer, though. So, once you get past the smell... Taste is weak, but it does have the faint characteristics of a Pale Ale, however weak. There's a definate hop presence and if I try hard enough I can taste/imagine some malt. Palate is, well, watery with high carbonation and a not-so-pleasant aftertaste (nothing bad, but there). Overall I've got to say that if you're desperate to cut carbs while still drinking beer, this is about as good as its going to get for the time being. I'm a beer geek so maybe I'm a bit harsh on it, but I'd still rather have this than a Bud, and certainly over a Mic Ultra. The only reason this is getting a low score is that I'm comparing it to a true Pale Ale and not to a macro or light beer, otherwise it would score much higher. Hopefully this beer will encourage other brewers to try and create something better. Please?

    Orange color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is slightly malty and touch citrusy. A light bodied ìlow carbî Pale Ale. Malts are mild and slightly nutty. Very little hop flavor, but what is there is, is slightly spicy. Lively carbonation and it does retain some beer like qualities but it is kind of thin and watery. If I was stuck drinking a low carb beer, I guess this one would be OK. Crisp and refreshing, with no obvious flavor defects. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    Pours crystal clear amber with a foamy white head. The nose has malt & some citrus in the background. Finishes pretty cleanly. Compared to other light or low carb beers, this is pretty good; compared to a good pale ale fm a micro, it's not there

    My word , wonders never cease a low carb pale ale!..bought at Trader Joes. Pours a dark clear copper..with a huge frothy off white head, moderate carbonation. The aroma is very dull..some faint pils like hops and a sort of creamy smelling maltiness. taste is just plain nothing..slight hop..maybe a hint of malt sweetness..but its all buried by rampant carbonation. Not too good on the palte too watery and gassy. Its drinkable and it is probably the best low-carb beer I have had..but thats not saying much.
