Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2006
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.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2006
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.

trafford (171) - Germantown, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Not a bad light beer. A little more flavor than the mass produced, but still not up to the other Abita beers.

3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2006
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.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2006
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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2005
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.

Aubrey (3433) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Pale golden and mostly clear. Nose gave off nice notes of apples and white wine, but they were followed by a little corn. Light, very watery body; really weak carbonation. Malts were only slightly sweet and somewhat papery, with a little sweet corn. Hardly any bitterness to speak of; light hop aromas (sweet flowers). Not undrinkable at all, but boring and bland for the most part.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Yellow color. Clean pale malt aroma, with apple like fruit smells and a light hop aroma. Flavor is clean, lacking character, but it isn’t nasty and full of off flavors.

Ernest (6232) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (honeysuckle flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. If this was a little more substantial in the mouth, we’d have a Helles on our hands...clean enough aroma, Hallertauer hops (IMHO), and 100% barley, just really really light and flimsy in the mouth, almost like a non-alcoholic lager. If only most American "light" beers were like this. Good for the style.
