Bavaria Light is characterized by its low calorie and alcohol content. It has its own identity, its bitter flavor balanced with its body. Extremely refreshing, this beer quenches thirst without the “rebound” effect of sugars. It has generous fullness for its type, and all the qualities belonging to a perfect Lager. Florida has been producing Bavaria Light since 1993.

Note: At one point the ABV went from 2.7% to 3.4%.

Hmmm, As I am usually an anti-light beer advocate, this is a bit of a strange rating for me. bust since todays diving was nearly traumatic(cranium meets volcanic rock due to my failure to read the surge correctly) I had two of these with lunch. Light bodied yet malty from start to finish. No mandatory nap time associated. Finish wi well melded to body and flows flawlessly.

clear yellow color4, white head, some lace. nose of sweet corn. sweet corn syrupy flavor. watery bodied, sweet finish, with is a slighty metallic after taste. not a very entertaining beer, which i only drank for the rating while relaxing in costa rica. then i went back to the standard pale lagers served at this resort, like pilsen or imperial.

Boutip (5272) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2011
Bottle: Poured a light golden yellow color lager with a small bubbly head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma consists of light adjunct with minimal residual sugar. Taste is also quite bland with light corn adjunct notes with a smooth finish. Another boring and very bland lager from this brewery.

douglas88 (7454) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Bottle shared by Craig. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A sweet funky grain nose. The flavor is interesting; a sweet grain flavor but some dry funkiness almost like sick Brett. Odd, drinkable though.

Appearance: Pours clear golden with a small white head that dissipates quickly, no lacing. Plenty of carbonation.

This is a decent low alcohol lager. Crisp and clean, very drinkable.

decaturstevo (5535) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Yellow/gold with a creamy white head and lace. Corn and light malt aroma. Light corn and perfume with no bitter. Thin and fizzy.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2010
Bottle. Yellow. Thin head. Light grass-straw nose. Like eating straw while drinking water. Dirty. Yuck. Drink ice cold.

arminjewell (8759) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Pours golden with little head, aroma is light with some floral and cereal notes. Taste is just like it smells, like a lighter version of the gold. Not too bad, but lacking in any real flavor.

My light beer choice during my stay in CR. Next time I go back will see if it still fits the bill.
