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.

BiereLuc (856) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
(version importée, 355ml, 4%) - Bière dorée, translucide, coiffée d’une mousse blanche éphémère. L’effervescence est soutenue et formée de grosses bulles. Nez générique de maïs et d’eau minérale. En bouche, le profil n’est guère plus complexe. C’est moins amer qu’un Perrier au pamplemousse! Le pétillement est posé, mais il ne fait que transporter des saveurs effacées. Je ne note aucun défaut flagrant, si ce n’est que l’absence de grandes qualités. À l’heure où InBev débarque avec des bières de Goose Island au Québec, Molson-Coors manque un peu de vision en important un produit qui n’offre rien de plus que leur Coors Light qui, elle au moins, a le mérite d’avoir une canette avec plein de bidules.

HuskerTan (447) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - DEC 28, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Grainy, cereal, hay. A- Golden color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Little bitterness, corn, grainy. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, boring finish. O- A poor light lager. Especially coming from the Netherlands, one would expect more.

This brew is in dire need of refinement or at least more alcohol to mellow out some of the graininess. Ah, who am I kidding? This isn’t exactly the go-to imported beer for the craft community. It’s not as bad as it could be, but it sure isn’t good.

Berard (265) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours yellow with light white head that dissipates. Very mild aroma over heavy carbonation. Unremarkable. Above average light beer that doesn't suck as bad as bud/coors light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Armadill0 (255) - FINLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has grain and corn. Taste has grain, little hops. Surprisingly tasty for such a low alcohol content. Not takong that into consideration, tasteless and watery.

Strohgelbes Kastriertes mit minimal malzigem Einschlag, viel Gärungskohlensäure und fast gänzlich ohne Hopfen. Spülwasser, igitt!

Kita (973) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 2, 2013
Canned, 0.33l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head, some lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of light malt, cereals, vegetables and some skunkiness. Taste starts with light sweet adjunct malts, follows by light grassy sourness and very mild bitter finish. Light body, watery texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Pure golden colored water :)

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Can on BA117, 8.25 LHR - JFK, 23/11/13. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering, vigorous carbonation presents itself ni the glass. Nose is corn, cereals, light citrus, paper, grain. Taste comprises cereals, raw bread dough, grass, corn, grain. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation, dry finish with a hint of bitterness. Bland pale lager mediocrity.
