1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2007 A ridiculous waste of barley malt, hops, yeast, and the water that it so closely resembles. With a barely detectable sweet malt aroma, this watery drink has a diluted malt flavor with very little in the way of hops. I followed it up with a glass of water, just as refreshing and three dollars cheaper on the menu.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Very pale, almost clear. Not much of a head. Aroma is of stale beer. Not much body. Not much flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice pale color, very light flavor, makes for an excellent light beer. Not as bitter as many light lagers.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2007 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, pale pilsener golden with a small, white head. Thin aroma of unmalted cereals. Light-bodied, sweetish and sticky with notes of cardboard. No bitterness. So not even Abita could manage to brew a drinkable Light-beer. 060406

Would actually drink this over the Golden. Smells the best of the beers I had in the mix pack, except maybe the Turbodog. Just an okay light lager.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a very clear pale yellow color with almost no head. Aroma is almost non existent sweet straw. Flavor is actually pretty good and almost pilsneresque. Hayish and malty. Overall, not a bad tasting light beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not a bad light beer. A little more flavor than the mass produced, but still not up to the other Abita beers.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
You know what you’re getting. Pale yellow color with a very slight murkyness. Nose is fairly clean and polished: sweet (subtle) grains and sugars, actually could stand up next to a few good pilsners with the nose. Tastes clean and light, very polished and unoffensive, which I suppose is the point of these light beers, so with that in mind I guess this does it’s job.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle Pours a clear light yellow with a small white head, which leaves quite quickly. Aroma is of corn and dough. Taste is of decent flavor for a light beer.Has a cornflake flavor with very little bitterness and no real aftertaste. If I had to drink a light beer this is okay, but still lacks character.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale straw yellow hue, thinnish, swiftly diminishing head, now, it’s gone, boo hoo..
Aroma: clean, clear, and corny...typical macro-brew grainy musk...wide open and full of nothing...
Taste: more, or less, of the same. Blase’ to the Nth degree....Drinks down easily, but only if you like that weak, vegetal flavor...bleh...bluh...blech...
I hope Abita makes money off of this, for there’s no other reason for it’s existence...Just sad, really...not horrible, just not good.
What’s up with that? N’othin’ much...that I know of...if lightness in texture, body, and everything is your aim, this is your ticket. But because of that, count me out.
