Brewed in the same high quality tradition as the original Heineken, but lighter in taste and with fewer calories and carbohydrates.

Being introduced in four select US markets beginning in June 2005: Phoenix, Arizona; Dallas, Texas; Tampa, Florida; and Providence, Rhode Island.

This poured a straw yellow with a white head. Araoma was skunk and grass. Flavor similar, some corn adjunct too. Bad.

One of the light beers that’s totally drinkable. Goes down smooth and doesn’t taste watery. Its better to pour in drinking glass.

1A Pours a crystal clear pale yellow color with a smallish bone white head that shows little retention. Light sweet bready malty pilsner aroma with a whole lot of skunk. The flavor is a light bready grainy maltiness with a hint of hop bitterness and again a bit of mercaptan. Light body with a spritzy level of carbonation and a slick watery mouthfeel. I can’t get away from the skunky aroma to find much to like about this beer, probably a poor example to be a classic style imho.

Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. Weak, grainy and lightly fruity aroma with a little cellar hint. Dry and thin on the palate, a bit hard carbonation, but not with a too high level. There’s a faint bitterness in the flavor, really faint actually, with pale malts and some notes of fruityness. Short finish. Nothing interesting going on here. 130903

Bottle- pours a light straw color with a fair head that fades with no real lacing. Aroma is fairly mild with a bit of citrus, malt sweetness and grain. taste of just a bit of citrus with some malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, smooth and short on flavor. A decent non-offensive light beer.

Bottle @ home. Pours brilliantly clear gold with a 1" tall frothy and bubbly white head, short retention with spare lacing and the head receding to the side of the glass. Aroma is spunky malt graininess with light spicy hops, light fruity notes though not estery. Sweet corn DMS notes enter and the grain/corn becomes more prevalent as it warms. Flavor is light malt, slight grain and husk notes with rice and corn. Light to faint spicy hops and a light hop bitterness are well balanced with the malt. Finish is dry with a light bite to it. Body is light and thin with medium-high carbonation.
