4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mahr’s Brau Leicht has a thick, spongy, frothy, white head, and a somewhat hazy, straw-gold appearance, with some ascending bubbles and very heavy lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of biscuit and bread dough, and the flavor is the same with a mild, rounding bitterness. Mouthfeel is almost medium, and Mahr’s Brau Leicht finishes crisp and refreshing.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
