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 (1484) - 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 (4423) - 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.

Bottle in Louisiana with some fried catfish after a long day of cutting concrete with my dad. Typical light beer, not much flavor, but refreshing.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow color, with a head that goes quick. Very clean and crisp. Very easy to drink. Malty aroma not much flavor. Smooth on the palate.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. It is a typical light beer. Not much going on. Lots of grain. I would put it up there with any other light beer. Refreshing.

Bottle. So this is the last part of a slummin’ with light beers night. Pour is a little darker (yellow) than the previous ratings, but head is virtually nonexistent. Aromas are a robust mix of straw and grain (well, by robustI mean for the company this keeps.) Flavor is an annoyingly sweet mix of malt and straw... not even grass, but that sweet and obnoxious smell you get from an old bale of slightly wet straw. Still, in comparison with some of its AB peers, this is a best in class for the night. I won’t be back ever again, but my Abita Light experience wasn’t completely awful.
