obguthr (3634) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Barley malt and corn nose. Hazy yellow, thin head. Tart malt flavor, decent strength. A touch of lemon meringue in the finish. Full of flavor for a light beer.

Abita Light has a medium, off-white head and a fairly cloudy golden appearance, with moderate carbonation. The aroma is of barley, with a nice hop background smell. Taste is of bread, with a decent hop spice. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and Abita Light finishes crisp and refreshing. This is the best light beer I have ever consumed. RJT

Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white thin head. Appleish aroma, lagered notes a bit rustic and bittersweet. Paper y thin with a German yeast tone a bit bread y very light with a dusty dry finish. A bit corny, eh i didn’t like it.

Bottled@Monks Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is quite much cooked vegetables along with some mild fruits and bready malts. Flavour is saltwatery along with cooked vegetables, mild fruits and rather bread malts. Not very pleasant...

Awful. A step up from bud light but not by much. Only positive about this beer is it goes down easy.

italarican (1470) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Pours an almost pastel yellow, fairly clear, with standard white head. Aroma is grains, a bit of malt, and a slight hint of citrus. Flavors is light malt and a hint of floral hops, which isn’t all together noteworthy. Light body. Pretty good for what it is but lacking overall.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, light amber body with a thin, bubbly, white head. Smell: As is the way with light lagers, the nose is pretty lifeless, but, at least it’s not entirely absent. Very meager hints of waterlogged grains and floral notes. Taste: Tremendously light pale malts with a faint touch of toasted grain. Even at this early stage, the flavor begins to thin and grows increasingly watery. Hops provide some vague floral hints and a tiny bit of bitterness. Minor rebound of graininess prior to the dry, clean, but very thin finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied to nobody’s surprise. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Water-like refreshment. Thirst: quenched! Above average for a light lager, but, even the best light lager is still a light lager.
