I like this beer - for a light lager. It has more flavor and character than most light beers. Good golden color, holds a head longer than most of its type. Flavor has a bite! Like real beer should! Bud Light, Miller Lite and the others canít come close to this beer. Itís quite good for the type.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2005 Pretty good for a light beer, better than most other light I would have to say, make sure you are rating "City Light" instead of "Brew City Light" little difference in Name big difference in quality

Light straw color,small white head that faded quickly.Very well carbonated in the pour,with the aroma being light malt and a light lemony side,faint hops.Very nice flavor albeit lightly flavored but much better then some other lights iíve had.Mild malt taste with a mild lemony appearance and mild hops with a slight,faint hop bitterness.This is a nice brew that i think i could drink almost daily.Thanks to GrainbeltGuzzler for sending this brew my way.

This beer is just like a bud or busch light. It has a little more flavor though. It is even better out of the tap, but bottles are very decent.

A little darker in color than the La Crosse Light and definitely better. City Light is made from the same recipe as the original Special Export Light. Not a bad value proposition considering the low price. When in La Crosse, I would definitely buy this before Bud Light.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2016 Light bodied. Poured into tumbler cup, pale color. I sense some stinky cheese, there is really no bitterness to this beer from what I taste.

This canned brew poured a large white head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting softly carbonated bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body was a softly carbonated transparent light orange color. The aroma was very mildly malty. The palate was mildly tingly at the start with a smooth malt hop finish. It has some flavor actually. Not bad for a light beer. I found it hard to add more to the description of the flavor.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2008 In the can and called Brew City Light. A thin white head. Very pale and light color with a few bubbles. Aroma is metallic with green beans. The taste is a malty bit of corn. It also has some more sweetness than you would expect. On tap at the brewery, this was called Local Light and slightly better. It is the same as City Light, but with rice instead of corn. At least that was how the head brewer explained it to me.
