Gold Color, large head. Hoppy light tasting, with some malt flavor. Kind of thin mouthfeel, but it is a light beer. Not to bad. Typical pilsner. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear yellow color with a bleached white head that doesnít last seems typical for light or American Standard type beers and this one is no different. Mildly skunky and bitter. Itís relative dryness as compared with other macros is itís best attribute, but that isnít saying much considering it isnít really that dry. Overall it is one of the most drinkable of all the macroswill, but I would still do my best to avoid anything approaching the reprehensibility of this beer.

Not a big fan of light beers overall, and definitely not a huge fan of this one. Bitter and a bit skunky, I wasnít very impressed. There are better light beers available in grocery stores.

Most of the time, this will taste a little skunky and bitter, but I think its supposed to and it isnít necessarily a bad thing. Decent flavor for a light, but its definately different than American lights.

Why? Just stop drinking beer if you need to lose weight so badly. At 3.5%, youíll drink twice as many of these to catch up with your buddies, and end up with more calories.

The king of the light beers before Sam Adamís light. A good full flavored light beer with a clean, if a little thin, mouthfeel. Can get skunky and old despite the bottle color. Fascinating.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 The best light beer, I think. Presents with a nice easy malt/grain aroma and flavor. Light tart little bigte at the end.

This wasnít too bad for being brewed in mass quantities. Fairly easy to drink. Taste is not appaling, but thatís because there is a significant lack of taste. Oh well.
