A terribly boring pale lager. Little aroma or flavor. Perhaps a tiny bit better than the original. Mostly tastes like water. Awful.

Bottle during the RBWG Lobby Share. Pours a clear yellow with small white head. The aroma is grass and skunk. Similar flavor to nose with metallic finish.

Aurelius (4497) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Sweet and sour, corn muffin aroma. Clear beer, cheesy label. Tastes like cereal and bitter seltzer water. Very light body, mercifully short finish. ABC Likkas, Kerry Forest Pkwy.

cheap (4336) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Drank directly from a twist off bottle made in Latrobe. A little better than the regular version. Some detectable tartness in the background but just barely. Does have some of that old lager feel to it, you know, like a one year old case of cheap beer. Melanie shure has a nak for picking patriotic names, think defenders, heheh.

unclemattie (4302) - Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2012
12oz twist-off bottle. Golden color. Thin white head. Aroma of cardboard, corn, and steamed vegetables. Tastes like water. No shit, straight water. Ok, maybe dishwater. Finishes with a oily, soapy character. I don’t know which is worse the regular lager or this ’light’. One more thing to make the Founding Fathers roll in their grave. (3340)

nearbeer (3933) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2012
12 oz. Clear golden with a lasting disc of meringue. Aroma is dry grass, scorched grain and light skunk. Taste is light caramel, light burnt toast, light lemon, light dry grass and light dusty grain. Light body is balanced, soft, overcarbonated, and watery, but still lightly refreshing, Light.

HIGHB4LL (750) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, pale straw color, clear, head does not last, ok lacing. Aroma: light fruit, and floral, light wheat. Palate: light body, average carbonation, light bitter finish, thin texture. Taste: light sweet fruit and what, into light caramel and finishes slightly floral bitter. Overall, decent for the style, but nothing amazing. Very drinkable. Like bud or coors, but with actual flavor.

Yes an ordinary light. Actually it's not even as great as that. It's cheap and proceeds go to help families of vets. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
