HeistAlmighty (1155) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
355ml bottle. Pale yellow colour, foamy white head. Aroma is grain malt, a little bit of lager funk and actually some hops. Taste was much the same. Impressed they actually put some hops in a light beer. Palate was a little watery, as is expected, but no more than anything else in the style. Lots of carbo. Overall, pretty good for a light. Stacks up well against other low cal beers like the 67 and even holds up the the non-light version.

341 ml bottle from the brewery. AP clear golden, overcarbed, quick white head AR almost nothing, some sweet grainy 2 row FL touch of powdery malt, touch of peanut shell, finishes anoyingly dry PA over carbed and super dry, might be the dryest light lager ive ever had OV much better options in light lager catagory

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle- Thanks Dave! A sparkling golden pour unleashes a foamy but short lived white head. Nose of grains, grassy hops, some biscuit, slightly fruity. Taste is sweet grainy malts, a bit of grass/floral hops, lemon. Quick, fizzy finish leaves no aftertaste whatsoever. Not all that memorable.

mabel (6723) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2009
[2476-20090829] Bottle sample. Petrol sweet straw yeast aroma. Clear, pale yellow body with a quick bubbly white head. Sweet hay grain malt flavour has an odd sweet burnt aftertaste. Light body is very fizzy. Not refreshing, fair.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2006
Draught @ The Brewery: Chalk a higher score up to lower expectations. I wasn’t a fan of the blonde so I wasn’t expecting much from a lighter version of it. The head stuck around longer this time, with a very pale yellow colour on the pour. Flavour was more subtle, and thus to me, more enjoyable. A touch more sweetness, which offered more going on than the blonde. I feel the same way here as I do in the Corona vs Corona Light battle - go with the light, it offers less to be disappointed about.

HogTownHarry (6130) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2006
Bottle (341ml). Poured bright pale slightly bubbly gold with a minimal white head. Not surprisingly, smells just like the "Natural Blonde" only lighter - corn, dry grain, a little harsh. Taste is probably nicer than the blonde - similar, sweeter, but less harsh - very watery mouthfeel, still has that unpleasant aftertaste - acceptable lawnmower/fishing trip beer only.

Sammy (8939) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2005
. Fizzy initial pour. Their regular blond may be better, but the taste is OK for a 4% beer. Thin mouthfeel, some hops and a bit of malt. I would have this before a Molson or Labatt, but it is pretty plain. Thanks for the sample Pootz/Pootzboy.

Gorbalev (2953) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2004
Much like the non-light version, except thinner. Even more pale in colour and bland in taste. A step up from a macro light, but nothing else.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2009 2009-08-29. Crisp pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grass and straw, pale malts are light, touch of grainy oddness. ( 6+) Flavour is thin, straw, grainy pale malts, touch of cardboard. Average to light palate. Meh. 6/3/4/3/10 Bottle at Beer Bistro

2003. Wasn’t impressed with it at first, but it finished nicely. A mediocre beer, but an exceptional light beer 4/3/4/2/9 - 2.2
