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.

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.

Absolutely terrible, skunky, piss-clear, bad aftertaste. I can’t believe that people drink this when there are so many good beers out there...

I am not much into light beers. I found this beer to be better than Heineken, which I am not a fan of due in large part to the skunky smell. That smell isn’t as prevelant in this beer which makes it easier to drink. Typical light straw color and not much in aroma outside the aforementioned skunk. Would still tend to look for a different light beer than this one, however

Nice color, that it is very light and weak, very bland, maybe allright for those who like bud light.

Yuck. I think I have finally found a answer to the Budweiser question ’What can possibly be worse than this?’. It is ’This flavor, and at an import price to boot.’

Well, if the ordinary Amstel isn’t bland enough for you... God bless!

Another beer that should only be drunk when free; I mean, I’m desperate sometimes, but I’m never THAT desperate.
