3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Golden colour, white frothy head. Light. Not much taste but some malt sweetness. Still a little creamy palate.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
. 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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[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.
