This is another crap cheap beer to add to your "poor" list. The case was 8 bucks and it wasn't even worth that.

Exact same as if light. Pale lager, highly carbonated, bland finish. Best drank cold.

(can - 12 oz) Pale yellow with a fizzy head. Smells like corn and can. Some grass. Tastes pretty much the same. It was there.

gift from "cheap" thanks buddy. I’ve never tried this beer before, so this is a first. Ok, it’s a cheap grass cutting brew, nothing else. Cheap beers, a cheap price, so I guess what else would you expect?

Same great American taste, less great American calories! Sadly, there is nothing less American than having less calories in anything.

I would put this in the category of Bud light, miller light and so on. I think it holds its own for its style and price range. I would not buy it again. I’m beyond this type of beer.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 How did PGH Brewing ever score the rites to a name like American? Yes, the american light form the company that invented the first ‘light beer’ & the makers of light brigade. Don’t say ‘this is first’ because it is one of the low price leaders in the south western PA region. 29 US cents per 12 oz can. Nice average flavor for a lager. I heard this is sold abroad and it sells well outside of the US. It says it has the strength of america in it. Pours very light yellow but not quite bright enough to be called lemon. Not a ticker because I rate this as I taste. Very few bubbles in the brew but the carbonation is decent to below average. It is a little bit light on the palate. Personally, I think that PGH brewing’s other lite knock off ‘brigade’ may be much better. A well behaved lager with a rapidly fading finish that is not an insult to the back of your throat. Good deal and it fills in where the raters leave off.

If I wans’t from Pittsburgh this woud be rated the lowest. Here in Pgh, we drank this when we were young and hiding in the woods. I guess whoever we stole it from didn’t miss it. Tried it again and it hasn’t changed.

This canned brew poured a small sized head of frothy fine to medium sized mostly diminishing white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and yellow in color. Its aroma contained notes of malt hop and was a bit skunky. Its mouth feel is initially tingly bubbly and thin on flavor with a lingering tingly palate and a thin flavor in the aftertaste. Its flavor contained thin malt hop rice notes. Too carbonated bubbly and fizzy for meNot one I would buy again.
