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.

Used to be my favorite beer when I was on my light beer kick. That’s about it, it’s better than any American standard light, but otherwise nothing special.

Very light, and lacking flavor. Good beer for a hot day.

The best light beer of them all, but it is still a light beer. Watery, weak, and a bitter snappy aftertaste....yep it is still a light beer. However, it is the only light beer that doesn’t make me wish I wasn’t even consuming beer.

Cost is a few cents more, but well worth it. Nice foamy head and beautifull color. Quenches my thirst like no other, and my thirst can be mighty powerful at times.

Not too shabby, still tastes like a light beer, even though they say it doesn’t. Better than most light beers. If you want light, go with this

It sucks to drink a beer with the word ’light’ attached to it, but I can actually stomach this one. Definitely not one of my top choices overall, but this a beer I can drink at a restaraunt just because it is the best they have.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2003 The best light beer out there. It is light, but it has a great taste. It's just like they say: The beer drinker's light beer.

This stuff does have more taste than most light beers but like all beers of this genre, it is watery. There actually is a hint of bready maltiness as well as a very mild bitterness. Unlike its stablemate Heienken, the stuff does not have that characteristic Heineken skunkiness. This stuff tastes like an aged version of the ’blonde’ beers offered by many microbreweries.
