1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
375ml bottle into glass. Nose has skunk and...a bit more skunk. Pale amber beer with thin film of suds. A few bubbles ascend every now and then. Mouthfeel is surprisingly full bodied, taste has some malt notes. Unfortunately the finish is all cooked vegetables and tin. There’s a lot going on for a light beer, but none of it is good.

Don’t see the point of light beers. Like most of them lacks flavour, character and anything interesting on the palate.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
375ml bottle, ABV 2.9%. Pale yellow colour, foam white head and aroma is malt with some grain. Taste is malty with alittle fruitiness and a light grassy hop bitterness. Crisp mouth feel, light bodied, well carbonated, dry finish. Quite OK for a low alcohol beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Little aroma and pours clear with carbonation. Light early with a malty taste with a crisp finish. Lager with a bit of difference. Could consume more than one at a sitting.

375ml bottle. One of the nicer light beers out there, but nothing special in general.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is clearly good for the style but not a truly super light beer. So in reality should really be compared the stable mate ’Mild’ plus the likes of Punch and Judy. Good balance right throughout and the malts do lend some decent weight with toffee and a almost ESP-like finish. In another (non-beer geek) life I’d be happy with this as a mid weeker.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Great for what it is... but at the opposite end of the spectrum for me. Drinkable with a smooth mouth and a crisp finish. Surprising amount of malt and balanaced well with the slight grassy hops. Best "light" beer I’ve tried in a while.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours pale gold with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows bacon with dirty malt and rotten vegetable. I thought there may be some hops in here, but the rotten vegetables are just too strong. Horrible. Absolute crap aroma. Massive bacon and vegetables.
Flavours are somewhat better, mainly because they’re incredibly faint. Some bacon and vegetable stew still shows, but then sweet malt takes over with absolutely no bitterness whatsoever to follow.
Very light body, low carbonation as well which doesn’t do well to dry out the excessive sweetness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big stubbie 375ml. Rating as a lite beer, as should be. Light straw and thin looking with a puffy head. Clean grainy malt and bitterness. Crisp, easy drinking and quite good for a lite beer.
