2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. I bought this for someone who likes light beers, but they cancelled on me, so here I go. I like Grain Belt Premium. This stuff does not taste anything like it. Typical ultra light beer with a metallic salty flavor and zero body. Do we really need a light version of a light beer? I was fooled by the surprising aroma similarity to Premium( corny malt). Crystal clear and well carbonated with just enough yellow to let you know it is beer. Goes down fast and is cleaner than many light lagers. This is a beer I would recommend only to the carb counting freaks who insist on still drinking beer. Not for everyday mass consumption. Although I’m on my eighth as I write this.

Does the brewery pour milk in this stuff to make it as cloudy and flat as it is? This is a horrible brew.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2004 Nice light golden color,small white head that had a short life.The aroma was malty,corn and some what fruity as well.The taste was lightly malty a little corn mild hops and just cerealish.Over all a fairly nice brew that started and finished quite nicely with a high drinkability.This was a nice surprise and i would recommend this to anyone for a refreshing rendition of a light beer.

Very watered down version of the very watered down Premium original. Less grainy and corny, actually went well with a wild boar sausage...yum.

For a Minnesota light beer its ok. not much flavor at all. It tastes a lot like Grainbelt Premium, just a little more watered down. I probably will never drink it again. I don’t see any reason to.

Call this a Koelsch and it almost passes. Snow white cap, pale lagery looking nectar, just some hint of a hoppish aroma... As it passes from ice cold to room temperature the aroma gets more stark and that metallic mineral and Coors like flavors lightly and incompletely emerge. Not altogether awful. Better than some domestic so called Koelsches.
