Forced to try this at Margaritaville (given the other options). For a lite beer, I liked it. I would drink it again. I’m brave to admit this! Yellow, light, with a head that dissipated\s quickly, pretty smooth...

Pours a clear golden straw color with a 1-finger white head. Aroma is light, with notes of lemon and corn. Body is light and watery, with a mild fizziness. Flavor of corn with some caramel malt, but very mild.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Immediate skunky taste overwhelms anything else. Tastes pretty much like a watered down Heineken.

Had a million of these but finally decided to rate it for some reason. It was the only beer in the fridge at cubs suite. Yeah. A shitty version of shitty Heineken. The good thing is it only takes about 37 of them to get you drunk.

Can. Pours with a bright golden colour, a moderate amount of carbonation, and a white head, some hop in the aroma, and with little bitterness in the taste.

Alengrin (1746) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Tasted under its alias Amstel Lite. Typical ’light pils’, with a snow white, finely structured, sticky but not very stable head and brightly golden blonde, cristal clear colour. Aroma faintly hoppy, in an aromatic, flowery kind of way, pale malt and a vague honeyish sweetness, but not much else. Taste a thin graininess and malt sweetishness, smooth, otherwise very neutral and very watery as usual in this type of low-alcoholic lagers, only a very weak hop bitterishness in the tail. Basically tastes like the common Amstel Pilsener diluted with mineral water. Maybe that is exactly what is was.

33cl can served on a BA flight. Clear yellow, quite pale, loads of bubbles, huge frothy white head, lasts a reasonable amount of time. Decent lacing. Citrus and lemon in the aroma, some grain and hints of banana. The expected pale macro lager flavour, light maltiness, a touch of sweetness. Quite dry, very light palette, fizzy but not too fizzy. Short sweet finish. Not the worst of the style.

Transfer from BA review on 6-2-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a very pale straw color with a small white head. The head faded fast giving almost no lacing. Smell - The smell is almost non-existent with just the tiniest aroma of corn and wheat cereal. Taste – The taste is quite light and is of a little bit of breadiness as a base. At the start, there is a light corn taste that mixes with the bread. This sweetness diminishes some as the taste goes on and in the end just leaves a light cereal taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The beer has a very thin body with a high level of carbonation – very fitting more the light tastes and body. Overall – It is somewhat refreshing, but not flavorful at all. Possibly good on a very warm day, but otherwise not worth the time.

Oh yeah this beer. Ok, well here’s my take on it. It was poured into a pilsener most of the time and a couple times poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a super light yellow color with not much of a head staring back at me. Lacing, uh...there wasn’t any. The smell, it seemed to me, it was a bit corn/rice adjunct like if I could even pull that out. The taste was basically bland and tried to bring back those corn/rice adjuncts to sweeten it, but they really weren’t there either. On the palate, it sat super light and showed a great deal of sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed a bit harsh for the style, but it actually wasn’t too off. Overall, hmmmm....another Light Lager, ho hum. Next, please.
