1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a light gold with a small head and lace. Not much aroma. What’s there is mainly corn/grains and malt. Taste was similar with corn/grain adjunts predominating at the start and a mild hop finishes it off. Palate was a bit thin. Overall, a typical macro-light that is similar to other Pabst ’lights’ that are brewed in Milwaukee by Miller.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled at friend’s party and not much different than the full strength Special Export. Pours a light golden pale blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a film and white ring. Aroma of light corn grits, citrus hops and a touch of green vegetables. Taste is light bodied, well carbonated with a popcorn malt flavor with a slight bitter character. Finish is crisp clean cut and no aftertaste. A very watered down lager. Remember to serve this at about 35F degrees or colder.

Harder to find these days. Better than a lot of light beers that are out there. I’d take it over Bud Light or Miller Lite any day. It actually has some TASTE for a light beer...and okay taste at that.
Too bad Heilemann ended up going under...Miller seems to have no interest in even selling this beer unless they have to.

Basically a watered down version of the original, just cereal grain on the nose, a hint of skunk, very light, not much flavor.

16 oz can. pours a pale yellow with a quickly disappearing head, not a lot of carbonation. definitely a corn flavor to this beer. watery with a hint of a bite to it. i think it tastes better than its fuller brother.

I couldn’t agree more with antisnobJP. This is one of those beers (Point Special is another) that people bitch about as they guzzle can after can on a hot day.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Served in a green bottle. Skunky-flavored beer originally from LaCrosse, Wisconsin. Staple of my college and early post-college days. Golden, small head, skunky beer smell that let you know it was there. Quite quaffable, actually. Watered-down version of the original.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a light clear golden with a small head. Aroma of corn and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is just another light calorie pale lager. Better than expected.

I keep trying to get my friends to drink better beer but they like the cheapness of this one. Tastes of water and butt.
