Being restricted to low carb beers I have to say this is one of the better ones. More taste by far than any Am. lght and better balance than DAB low carb and Becks premium light. I picked up a 12 of regular Bit by mistake once and couldn’t really tell much difference. It is also cheaper ($8.99/12) than is Amstel light.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma’s a bit skunky, hiding some sweet malt and floral & herbal hopping. Light-bodied, it’s got a similar taste to Bitburger’s Pils, perhaps a bit sweeter, more lightly hopped, and not as refreshing. Neither "low-calorie" nor "low-alcohol" (2.8% abv) is a selling point for me, so I’ll pass on this in the future.

I lived right down the hill from the Bitburger brewery from 1999-2002, but never had a Bitburger Light until I found a 12-pack on sale for $6.49 in Omaha, Nebraska in 2005. Go figure. Anyway ... this is bright yellow with a average if slightly impressive white head. For a "light" beer this gives an impressively robust malt and light hop aroma. The flavor is far beyond any American light beer and only a tad off the mark of the better German pilsners ... grassy malts and a nice little bitter finish. I think this bumps Amstel as the best light lager out there.

Bottle. Light is the main word for this brew. Cold and refreshing with a very short finish. More character compared to other low alcohol light brews.

One of these ended up in a six pack of regular Bitburger I bought recently. Pours a light gold color I could definitely taste a hint of maltiness, but otherwise didn’t think too much of this beer. If I want low ABV beer in the future, I’ll definitely stick to Berliner Kindle Weisse.

Grapevine Market - Austin, Tx - 12 oz bottle - Pours a pale straw color, with a thin snow white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma has some wort-like essence to it with a bit of Saaz hoppiness funk. Similar to some American low carb lagers, has a tonic water taste and feel to it very spritzy and not that refreshing in a beer. Detect a slight trace of malt and some peppery notes as well. Takes your breath away - in a bad way.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Vegue vegetable-like aroma. Vegetable-bitter flavor, not overwhelming in any way, but enough to be a bit annoying. Thin.

Not bad for a light beer. One of the better offerings within the style. I would definitely buy this one again.

This is a very good lager for a low calorie. Perfect for those looking for a full taste but less on the waist.
