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 smells like beer but any similarity ends there

Well at least it smelled like beer. The nice hue and aroma give a false sense that you might be in for a surprise but , alas, with the first sip, you are reminded itís still a light beer. And whatís with the 10 oz bottles? Drinkable....but barely. Not impressed.

Not worth the price and very light, but I do enjoy the taste and I get one at the bar every now and then.

I usually get this beer at tailgate parties so it comes free. It has a better flavor than most lights, but not typically a first choice of mine.

Re-rate (3/18/02): A very average beer, but good as far as light beers go. Some light malt taste is there, albeit very light and there are some discernable hops on the finish. Very drinkable, but for the same amount of money, you can buy so much better. The knock on all light beers is that they lack taste. Does Amstel Light lack taste too? No, its pretty good. A straightforward refreshing light beer but nothing to write home about and certainly nothing to justify its higher import price.

A little light for my taste. Decent taste, but too watered down. Nothing Iíd buy twice, but worth a try, I suppose.

Good all around lite beer. Not as strong but will still do the job. Definitely refreshing while you wash your car. I know it sounds weird but i love to drink it while i do that. I guess the less alcohol and lite-ness doesnt give you that ípoundingí you get from drinking outside while you work.

Itís really an impressibe beer for the íLite Lagerí category. Not watered down at all. A lot better than Sam Adams Light. Itís got an odd odor to it that I donít like so much, but the more than decent flavor makes up for it. A couple of bonus points for being light and still tasting good. Something I drink often when Iím in a the íneed to get in shapeí mood (which lasts about 4 days out of every month). Wish it had some more alcohol in it, but oh well.
