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.

I hated this beer. I was really expecting something better, although I am not sure why. I guess it is true that anything with the word ’light’ should be avoided.

Hey its a light beer. Definitely a light beer for someone who enjoys beer.

Nothing special. Not much aroma, very very tiny hop flavor, barely detectable. No real flavor to speak of.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 If you enjoy the likes of Heineken and Becks, and are looking for a light beer, this one is for you.

This is not nearly as bad as most light beers, in the same way that a rainy day is not nearly as bad as a sleety one. Actually has some flavor (not much). It’s honest to the companys basic product though - it tastes exactly like watered-down regular Amstel. If you insist on light beer, and run across this - order it. You’ll be pleasantly suprised. If you insist on real beer - pass. Trust me.

Plain, not too much of anything going on, certainly beter than most light beers, but thats not saying too much. It has a decent hint of hoppieness, but nothing special.

Not bad for a light beer. Slightly malty-sweet. Good carbonation.
