Bottled Light straw gold, with pleny of fiz. Cheep and thin. Quite unimpressive really.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
From a can, beer pours (in Chimay glass) an applejuice (piss, read 'urine')-golden color with virgin-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of strong straw, grass, vegetal. Flavor is of a watered down straw, grass - not too prominent. Still a drainpour. Looks awful. Tastes awful. Just another sucky, yellow beer - and there's plenty of them. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

In 5 words: Cold, crisp, light, refreshing, clean. I think that about sums it up.

I liked this stuff with sushi. Decent light malty taste for a megabrew, hops were clean smelling but light. Body was decent and aftertaste was slightly sweet and long.

Color is clear yellow with a gold quality, but a vigorous pour produced very little head or foam. Smell is thin malt and grain of rice or corn. Taste is mostly watered down malt, corn, and rice with real no flavor. Barely sweet. Feel is water, thin, weak, empty, nothing, have a glass a water with a lemon. Very sorry I even tried it.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Almost no aroma. Light in colour, flavour and bitterness, and has no aftertaste. It is highly carbonated. Actually made under licence by Lion-Nathan, this is sort of an Australian version of a Japanese imitation of an American Standard.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had this on my seventh wedding anniversary for good fortune...pale yellow, highly carbonated, started out with a large head that quickly fizzled out, no lacing, mild/almost nonexistant aroma, a tinge of hoppiness with a sweet finish. Not impressive, but better than most other widely available lagers.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a bad lager, just doesn't do enough to distingish if from a lot of the other mass produced dreck. Beer pours golden with big fluffy head. Beer is yellow, but not fizzy. Head almost completely dissipates, but there is moderate lacing. Aroma is very light floral hops. Taste follows, initially lightly sweet followed by a dash of hop bitterness. Good for mass produced beer. Not good by other standards.

not bad at all. Almost what an american standard ought to be. full bodied, nice hop taste, very refreshing, a little bloaty, but i'm drinking it fast. was better cold at the top of the glass.
