1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear straw head with white head. Aroma is cereal, some sweetness. Taste actually is grassy, but the body, alas, the body is absent, so that the flavor has nothing to rest upon.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle at Fred 62, Los Feliz Village, Los Angeles. Rubbish. Watery, tasteless nonsense. Short hint of beer initially, just a like beer-flavoured cordial mixed into too much water. Soft, flat, hardly anything there.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, from a Japanese restaurant. Pours pale yellow, with some hops aroma. This one went fairly well with pork fried rice.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
As a rule I’d never sample one of these “Light” beers, but as I was given a sixer by my neighbor, and as her soon to be daughter-in-law is from Japan, she bought the beer only to find out she doesn’t drink, so here goes nothing.
The beer escapes the bottle a very light translucent yellow with a moderate in size bright white head that is frothy in texture, and the lace a very thin sheet to conceal the glass. Nose is all malt what there is of it, crisp and clean, start is sweet, thinly malted, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish is sternly acidic, hops sparse and the aftertaste desert dry, drinkable if you’re into light beers and I must say a tad better than most.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled, NYC. Pale straw yellow coloured body. Fine white fizzy head. Served super-cold, almost icy. No flavour, some bitterness. Alcohol with out the CHO’s or the flavour.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light straw with a quickly dissipating white head. Very light malt and noble hops profile nose. A decent pilsner with three ice cubes added (or perhaps a few ounces of club soda) would make this beer. Aurelius nails this one, "malt seltzer".

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Looks like urine - very pale gold. Smells and tastes like a skunky German beer. This one is not much better than drinking a glass of urine - hopefully I just had a bad bottle.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bland watery light beer. Some mild graininess and some dryness, but altogether just bland and watery. Color is a pale yellow color.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
When I took my first taste of this brew, I knew instantly that I was not going to like this one. It poured a small white creamy head with small bubbles. There was fair lacing with this brew. The body was straw yellow in hue. It had a mild malt aroma and it was bitter tasting from start to finish. This brew was light and watery tasting.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This brew poured a medium head of fine to medium sized white bubbles that quickly disappeared. Its body was a straw yellow and was very carbonated. It had a very mild malt aroma and a skunky cheap macro swill flavor of weak hops.
