Had 2 bottles of this on Saturday, 03/25/06 at the Comedy Cafe in Milwaukee. Bottle is slim, and sexy. Pours a light yellow glass of fizz, like over carbed soda pop. Bright white head that disappears alomost instantly. Smell of wet cardboard. Has a weak, graining flavor thatís extremely watered down, but funny tasting. Almost no buzz factor. In fact, it wouldnít surprise me if this is really re-packaged Buckler! This does not taste like watered down Heineken. It doesnít taste anything like Heineken at all. All light beer sucks, but this isnít even good compared to any other light beer. Itís really horrible, smelly, and bad tasting. Like drinking funny smelling dirty water. The club had a 2 drink minimum, which is why I suffered through another one. Oh, well. At least the glass bottle is cool.

Very reminesent of Bud. In fact almost a dead ringer I think. The beer has the same short built flavors of cheap adjuncts and short crispy hops. Actually very refreshing with absolutley no finish to speak of. But itís what you would expect.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Light straw color with a wispy white head. A touch of light malt in the aroma, minimal hops that one would expect. Mild acidic malt with a dry finish. Quite fizzy. Not much here.

FREE BEER!! this last st pattys day a couple of hot heineken girls rolled up with about 6 cases of iced new heineken light at no charge. funny thing was i didnt even realize it was light until somebody pointed it out to me...thatís why it was free promo thing. it did taste better then any heineken i have ever had because it was ice cold and for once not skunky. however, it was yourtypical light lager juice we all have tried a million times. horay for free beer even if it is heineken.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Incredibly pale and fizzy. Thin fizzy white head. Faint aroma of grains and skunk. Flavor is slightly sweet, corny, mild is an understatement. Water thin body. It sucks but you didnít need me to tell you that.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Bottle. Small white head that mostly diminished, poor lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a yellow hue. Nose was corn and somewhat astringent. Flavor was bland, somewhat sweet, watery, thin but nothing of significance stood out. Mouthfeel was tingly, watery and thin. Light body.

PorterPounder (5541) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Orlando Ale House, Orlando, Fl. 12 oz bottle. Pours a light golden with little to no head. Missing that patented Heineken skunk, has a little bit of fresh lake water accents, but otherwise non-descript. Crisp lager flavor, nothing really jumps out, a hint of honey sweetness perhaps. Palate is dry and thin. Beats the American low-carb entries. I thought Amstel Light was Heineken Light?

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Poured with a white head. The aroma was grainy corn with light wheat bread and some grass. The taste was grainy corn with some light carrots. very light body. There was not much else to describe this brew.

Obviously fresh sample. No tell-tale skunkiness in the nose but thereís really nothing else there either except a hint of dirty grain. Carbonated water taste with a hint of sugar. Extremely boring but light and watery enough that you could almost drink it without noticing it was beer.

Bottle. Had it at a promotion in DC. This tastes like a light beer. Not anything special. If you like Heineken youíll like it.
