COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A special light beer containing only 3.5% alcohol and approximately 35% fewer calories than regular lager beer. But every bit as thirst-quenching and refreshing.

It s light beer, why bother. Brewers have made the word light synonimous with no flavor. but it does beat most of the american made lights.

Its a light beer so there’s not much to be said here, though its taste is better than most light beers. That damn watered down taste is still there, but at least the look and aroma improve with amstel. Its too damn expensive for such an iffy beer though..i avoid it.

Ok, very week and not something I’d want to pay for. For a light beer, eh, is a even a reason for light beers at all?

How good could any product of Henie be? Better than most American lights, but why would anyone really drink this unless there were no other options?

One of those compromise beers that doesn’t have the flavor you really want in a beer, but if you need a beer and bud/coors/miller is the only thing else around, you go for one of these.

I couldn’t even enjoy this beverage if I was stoned, tasted like human sweat. Not one for the strong hearted, but for the week willed. For callow tasted buds only. I’ll pass this up next time and get a real brew.

While not as horrible as I expected, this was not interesting at all. Very watery and bland. The first time I’ve noticed the light sent of urine. I wish I could describe it otherwise, but I will not lie.

Not bad for a light beer--it wants to have hoppy tastes but it is watered down and filtered like every other light beer out there. I cant believe I am even rating this beer.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2005 This is a high quality light beer. One of the best out there, nice hints of flavor, good flavor. Not horribly watery or carbonated(relatively speaking). Almost has a hint of body. Relative to its style this is a great beer. No offensive adjuncty tastes, no armoa either, but could be alot worse. Rerate Well after having this a couple of times recently, it’s not nearly as clean as I remember. I could have sworn this was a pretty good beer, but I also think that was back in college when I was comparing it to Busch, Miller, Coors, Genny, Natty, etc. . Yes, that must be the case. Well, now that I compare it to decent pale lagers, it’s quite bad. A meaty, almost sour flavor to it, with that gross fake corn syrup flavor on the finish, much like Coors.
