COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%.

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 (4726) - 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 (6019) - 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.

Sledutah (4684) - Utah, USA - AUG 10, 2010
12oz (3.4% abv) can brought back from CR by my wife
Appearance: Pours clear golden with a small white head that dissipates quickly, no lacing. Plenty of carbonation.
Aroma: Pale malts, corn & grassy
Taste: Sweet malts, grainy with some slight bitterness in the finish
This is a decent low alcohol lager. Crisp and clean, very drinkable.

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 (4625) - 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 (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 7, 2009
350 mL can, sampled in Monteverde, Costa Rica. Pours a clear yellow, effervescent, large-bubbled white head with good retention and lacing. Bland aroma showing white grape juices, grain, and sugar. Highly carbonated. Definitely a very drinkable pale lager: crisp, minerally, low sweetness, good presence of a basic maltiness; medium mouthfeel; actually seems better composed than the heftier Bavarias, if lighter; good pale lager; crisp, lively, generally flawless. Light finish: toastiness, crisp, no lasting sweetness.
