Bottle: Some trace of hops & malt, a bit too fizzy. If you HAVE to drink light beers (I canít find a real reason) this is an option.

I had it from the bottle. Itís malty and fairly sweet with hints of corn and caramel. Itís decently balanced. I am not a light beer person. As far as light beers go, this is one of the better ones though.

Bottle. Aroma is mild cardboard, resin. Appearance is clear, pale, golden yellow with decent sparkle and quickly dissipating white head. Taste is lightly bitter. Palate is light-bodied with thin texture, lively carbonation (a bit too much), and mildly bitter finish. Overall, this is similar to Heineken or Beckís but like you poured a little water in it. Not interesting or special by any means but, as light beers go (which isnít saying much), if I had to choose one Iíd pick this over many others.

Malt heavy macro lager taste, without even a slight alcohol buzz, not one to return to, but only beer on Emirates flight!

I couldnít find anything redeeming about this light beer. The taste was terrible. I donít recommend it.

bennetporter (405) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Pours a pale amber with lots of carbonation from a bottle. Not much of an aroma, sweet caramel notes. Flavor thin and watery, sweet. Overly fizzy, slightly oily. Not a favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KoRoBeNiKi (131) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Light yellow color with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is of mal and light hops while the flavor is similar with a dry end. Thin and boring ending but nothing terrible. Frankly, quite drinkable

Pours clear pale yellow with two fingers of white head. Aroma of citrus and light bread. Taste is mellow citrusy bitter with abrupt sweet finish. Very light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

blankboy (6633) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
[Draught at Le Piano Vache, Paris, May 20] 23rd rating of my Paris/Amsterdam trip. Pours a clear deep orange with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of grain, fruit and sugar -- sweet and fruity. Flavour: Slightly watery, grainy and fruity, just a tiny hint of hops, maybe. Light to average bodied. Itís fine, nothing foul. Whatever.
