I havent seen this one around in a while. It was decent when I did see it. Again, not for the faint of heart, if you are looking for weak watery lights, stay off of this one.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 The name has got to go. If you get these ice cold, they’re actually pretty good. I like Hamm’s special light a lot more.

This beer is more classical than it is good. Very cheap on the counter. We used it to batter chicken at a restaurant I used to work at.

6/28/2009: Bürger Light is lighter, softer, smoother, and slightly sweeter than the regular Bürger Classic. I actually like it better too.

12 fl. oz. can from 12-pack purchased at Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield, Ohio. Rating #21 for this beer.

dekester1 (309) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2011
UPDATED: APR 6, 2012 Poured a yellow-gold with an intially nice frothy head that faded quickly to minimal lacing that eventually went away entirely. Aroma was sweet - mainly of malt mixed with corn. Taste was of sweet malt which moved into a slight corn favoring and finishing off with a very light hop bitterness. Palate was fairly decent for light beer. Overall, I thought this was fairly decent for a cheap ($5.99/ 12 pk) light brew. I did note that it seemed to taste similar to LaCrosse City Lager which is also brewed at the City Brewery. Perhaps a slight difference in its formulation.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Can: courtesy Shrubber. Pours clear, medium gold, with a tall white head. Scent is grain malt. Taste is slightly tangy grain, water. Extremely light, yet a decent strength in flavour. Truly, not that bad.

12oz can into a pint glass. Pours a clear straw yellow with a one finger white head. Surprisingly good head retention for this style of beer but the lacing is a bit lacking. Aroma is very metallic with notes of corn and cooked vegetables. A tiny bit of spicy hops is detectable in the background. Creamed corn flavor with more vegetable. A touch of bread and hay along with a brief whiff of wet grass. Light bitterness with a slightly sweet finish. Mouthfeel is a bit chalky. Overall, this is a budget beer and it shows but in saying that, it is not bad for what it is. I would take this over the big 3 any day.

Can from shigadeyo. Poured clear pale color with a minimal frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Can. Pours a really light yellow with a white head. Aroma is metallic and grainy. Some white bread comes through in the taste and finish.
