I don’t know what you guys are talking about, this beer is fantastic. a wee bit bitter, Tunes of Glory, some citrus hints. This could be my everyday beer, ’cept for it’s brewed in Germany and I am stuck here in Arizona.

Pale golden body, lots of sparkle, fluffy lasting white head; Amazing deep deep nose, spicy fresh with everything welcoming you, malt, hop and yeast, GREAT; Incredible body, big bubbled carbonation, bitting malt and hop bitter, super complex and very very well balanced; Super balanced lasting forever finish, bitterness from both malt and hop, spicy malt and green hop aromas, doughy yeast, but everything is so very very well balanced and composed. Heads up and hats of this beer is F..... amazing!!!

YO! This stuff is friggin sweet. It tastes great, like real BEER! But you can drink like 50 and still drive across the Bay State like a pro! Pale golden, with a fizzy white cap. Grainy, Mahrs lager yeast nose. Flavor wise, this beer is great. Such a lil one, but packing some flavor nonetheless. Pleasantly hopped, light yeastiness, great drinkability. If you are a Mahrs fan, which you should be, then you gotsta get some Leicht!

On tap. I agree with Hopistotle, this beer is sweet with some character behind it. When I'm drinking a light beer it's pretty much always to get drunk, but this light beer is much different because I would drink it because it tastes pretty decent....and it doesn't get you drunk at all. Wierd.

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers/honey). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. One of the best sub-3.0% ABV beers I’ve had, actually. Even full-alc Helles are rarely this good. The funny part is I’m not a very big fan of Mahr’s, for the most part...the Jubelfest is cool, but I haven’t had anything else that’s impressed. But this does. I expected crap but got a snoot full of Hallertauer and toasty malt. Very good stuff, and unfortunately doomed to be underrated.

Bottled. Beer is lightly hazy, light yellow with an average-sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting head. Aroma is soft and pretty: Malty with a light note of toasted grain; Hoppy with light floral/honeysuckle, green grass and straw notes; Yeasty with a trace of dough. The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly-to-moderately bitter with a long, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, lightly sweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is a bit more lively than lively. Right to style and refreshing.

1/2 liter bottle. Pours to a hazy, pale golden color, with a soapy white head that fades, and a soft to moderate carbonation. The nose is light, with some gentle grassy hop aroma. Palate is soft, with some mild pale malt flavor, on a round, clean body. This beer finishes with some mild pale malt flavor, then finishes with a mild, grassy hop bitterness that lingers. Very fresh tasting, easy drinking, pale lager. Its low alcohol makes it the kind of beer you could pound with impunity. This beer had gentle aromas and flavors, but make no mistake, this is a very good beer, one I enjoyed with a nice German meal of bratwurst and sauerkraut. This would make a really good beer to enjoy by the liter.

Pours bright gold into a stein. Bright white head with excellent retention leaves no lacing as it recedes to coat surface. Malt aromas. Crisp and slightly bitter from front to finish. Clean and dry. Sour aftertaste.

Disclaimer: a B for a light lager means the highest the style can get to me, it just looks foolish rating it any higher imo. 500ml brown bottle, bottled on date is messed up. It pours an odd color, it is almost like a witbier in appearance, a pale whitesh gold. The head is soapy and bright white receding fast, but leaving delicate rings of lacing. Smell is unique, but also vastly upgraded form American light beers. This one quite simply smells like if you were smearing hops on some bread with a subtle malt sweetness. The taste is again odd, but it has a decent hop presence and bitterness actually. The flavor is a bit like just plain old malted barley with not much sugar. My guess is they took their Helles, removed half of the malt and called it a day. Overall it is an interesting beer, it tops the light lager charts, though it itself isn’t the greatest beer unless your a calorie counter. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-09-2010 18:03:25
