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.

THIS PATHETIC EXAMPLE OF ’BEER’ MAKES ME PUKE, IS THERE ANY ALCOHOL IN THIS STUFF? A BORING, HORRIBLE BEER WITH A PISS COLOR...MADE FOR SISSIES, WHO REALLY DON’T WANT TO DRINK BEER OR BE DRUNK AT ALL. POSER SWILL, AND NEXT TIME YOU DRINK IT, DONT THINK YOU ARE COOL-CAUSE YOUR NOT!!

A great beer to relax and not gain the pounds with. I always seem to find a case for 10 bucks! Great for the $$$..

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2005 Someone recently challenged my rating on this with a simple ’Come on!’ It was legitimate criticism. Sure there’s much to be said about pure drinkability, but Rolling Rock is the best at that and is a favorite at bars when I want to remain sober. But you really can’t rate a beer that you can imagine your grandma joyfully quaffing getting an average rating or better.

Overpriced Coors Light with additional hops. Save money; get a Heineken and dilute with water.

Used to be one of my favorites. It is expensive beer and has hardly no Alcohol Content. Great beer to drink and relax with.

It’s better than it’s lager brother but still not anything to get excited about. It’s just another stock beer, apparently brewed for the masses.

I tasted water and I tasted hops, barely. Not offensive in any way. Not flavorful in any way.

Straw colored, clear as glass... or water. Decent head, but it doesn’t back up its image. Crisp, I’ll give it that. However, it is surprisingly flavorless. Although, the one I just tried had a very distinctive ’metal cap’ flavor. A ’Right-Wing Lawnmower Beer,’ if you will. This is the epitomy of a ’light’ beer.

Light summer session beer. Goes down surprisingly easy for something as uncharacteristic as this.
