12 oz bottle. 3.31, are you kidding me? Hand me a Becks Premiere Light. This beer has NO aroma, nor flavor. Totally weak. Kirin Light = Sparkling Water.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 12 oz bottle. Only 95 calories...but only 3.31% alc. Not a worthy sacrifice. Nice light beer, refreshing and LIGHT.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 26, 2007
12 oz bottle with some sushi. Clear light golden color with a fizzy white head and no lace. Light grassy hop aroma and flavor with a bit of grainy malt waved over it. Not terribly good. Watery mouth feel.

I love this beer. It is very refreshing and leaves a great aftertaste. It is also low in calories and you can drink a ton of them.

Like most light beers, this one is worse than its non light version. Its crisp and bubbly but thats about all you can expect from this brew

Bottle. Poured clear light pale color with an average rocky white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate grassy grainy aroma. Light to medium body with a watery texture with soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Pours yellow golden w/ only a slight ring of spritzy froth around the glass. Aroma of a light beer, faint bitter malt. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are light on the malt with a defined dainty bittering. Like a Geshia girl.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Bottle: Pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head, faint aroma of grass and light malts, starts and ends very lightly bitter, Thin bodied with not much aftertaste. For a light lager, actually pretty good.
