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.

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, itís 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, itís quite bad. A meaty, almost sour flavor to it, with that gross fake corn syrup flavor on the finish, much like Coors.

So light it will float away. FOr beer drinkers who want no taste or aftertaste.

íThe beer drinkers light beerí. I guess I am not a beer drinker after all. The commercial said that the beer is not watered down, but I beg to differ. Not much of anything going on in this beer. Only high note is that it is dry.

Easy to drink and very light. Kind of watery and it has the kiss of death on the label: íLight.í Iíll drink it when nothing better is available, but I find this one a little too watery for my tastes.

This is the beer to buy, when you go out with friends. It is simple, light, crisp. Nothing fancy, nothing heavy. Not as watery or thin as other light beers. And popular enough to get at your local pizza place and chinese food resturant.

It had a crisp taste on tap. Went pretty well with a chicken sandwich. Nothing special, but decent for a light beer.

Clear pale straw. Average white frothy/creamy head - mostly diminishing, fair lacing. Nose of sweet cereal and perfumed hops. Shallow flavor - starts sweet with an average sweet bisquit finish. Light watery body, lively carb. Very astringent finish. Tastes like Heiney. Not nearly as good as SA Light.

Sweet aroma, pale yellow, fluffy head. Mild malt flavour, tiny bitterness. Light bodied, not bad for a light beer.
