Bottle (gifted) watery, minimal head, short finish and thin body. Not much going on here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass
Appearance: pours a 2" sudsy white head that falls moderately with scant lacing. Color is clear light golden with plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: surprising amount of aroma for the style, sweet barley malt and even some grassy hops and the standard Heineken yeast.
Mouthfeel: light and frothy with a nice dry finish.
Flavor: a watery cousin of Heineken "heavy" with sweet barley and some mild hop bitterness
Overall: for a light beer, it is very good, one of the best in the category.

Canned version: This is definitely better than any AAL light lagers, since it has a fuller taste and no corn and rice adjuncts. I like the ABV here because sometimes I don’t want a 5% ABV lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A semi-watered down version of the regular Heineken lager. A bit more pale, not as shiney in color. Less malts, perhaps a bit less hops, so overall flavor is decreased. Better than the average light beer, but I’d rather go with a 4-5% pilsner, or lighter wheat beer instead.

Not Acceptable. Stick with Amstel light. Skunk light. Buy only if it's cheap or comes with free stuff. If you want all of the skunk, without most of the calories this is your beer.

"the age old question...is lite skunk better than regular skunk? both this and regular Heini suck...this one may be a touch more palatable flavorwise but the mf is water."

Heineken Light equals Heineken Light in Alcohol. It doesn’t even have that nice Heineken flavor to rectify drinking it.

Bottle at porch nite thanks to Jeff pours a pale yellow with slight white head. Aroma is corn and flavor follows. Regular macro pale lager. Meh.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- had a distinct skunky smell with a hint of hops, already a major turn-off for me.
Appearance- yelowish colored with slight carbonated bubbles with a small white head that did not linger.
Taste- Pure skunk mixed with a very watery slight bitterness. terrible bordering on bland.
Palate- a medium feel with very little zip and very forgettable
Overall- A true disappointment. I have had Heineken’s in several continents and I have been pleased, this light beer variant was god-awful
