Is a lighter version of our Original Lager, with one-third fewer calories and a crisp, clean, distinctive flavor.

12 oz bottle. sometimes I have a taste for leinie’s and the light does the trick. if my memory is correct it is similar in taste to the original. for a light it does have more flavor than most american macros. the price is pretty good too.

I’m rating this beer THIS high because of what it is. This is a light beer. No light beer can be GREAT but out of all the light beers, this one is the best. Fantastic!

I bought this for research purposes only, expecting to hate it. I was rather surprised. It actually tastes like beer. Light wheat with a very mild hit of hops in the finish. MUCH better than other lights--such as Bud and Miller. Actually drinkable, and well priced in my neck of the woods.

This is not a bad alternative to Miller Lite or Bud Light. It has more flavor, just a hint of hops, and you can be the guy spending a dollar more per bottle for slightly better beer.

Pours a golden body with a good white bubbly head, nice lacing. Nose of mals and slight flowery hops. Tastes of light sweet malts, a very light hop kiss. The yuppie alternative to Miller and Bud.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Sampled at the Leinie’s Lodge in Chippewa Falls, WI. Pours a clear, light pale blonde brew with lots of carbonation bubbles, and a fast dissolving white head. No lacing after the dissolve. Aroma is multi-grain malt, grassy hops, and a slight lemon zest. Taste is very light bodied, some corn malt and a slight metalic at the back of the tongue. Finish is watery, clean, crisp and no aftertaste. Not bad to a low-calorie, low-carb, light beer.

For some reason WI beer companies need to come out with "light" or "lite" beers. Even Sprecher does it which is some type of commentary on the whole WI beer scene. To which I ask "WHY?" Well this is nothing more than a macro type light beer. Maybe a little more aroma and taste than BMC but not by much.

(Tap) On tap at Leinie’s Lodge. Pours yellow with a slight white head. Actually a pretty decent light beer. The taste is much smoother and balanced then I expected. The tour guide said this beer is slowly being phased out (discontinued).

Pale gold with a mild grain aroma. Flavor is a grainy bitterness with a bit of malt and maybe even hops. Certainly not great but not bad for the price.

I must say i did not enjoy this beer too much. It was a little too watery for my taste.
