0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
I admire how close they got this to taste like water. It was impressively bland, and I found it hard to believe they got a whole 4.2% abv in there. It tasted as if they took Miller Lite and mixed it three-to-one with water. The idea of a "light" beer is to reduce calories, and I think part of the enjoyment for dieters is the satisfaction of drinking something that tastes as if itís nothing. When youíre on a diet, you probably want to consume stuff that tastes as if there are no weight-gain consequences, or in other words, healthy beer. This beer achieves that level of sheer nothingness. Thereís no smell. Itís a diluted yellow. Hey, itís bubbly. There was no lacing, none whatsoever. I could barely pick up on a generic beer taste. Itís also probably popular with high schoolers who hate the taste of beer. This is the blandest beer Iíve ever had, and for that I say congratulations, but Iíll never be back. My rating is low because even in comparison to other pale lagers, a purposefully mild style, High Life Light cowers in the corner. This beer may very well be why there is a "1" available on the "Overall" category. For a second there, I thought this may finally be the right occasion to use it. Then again, maybe it COULD be worse, and for that I give it a two. Just as perfection is unachievable, maybe anti-perfection is too. Things could always be worse, which is the only reason this gets a 2 out of 20.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted from can into tulip. It poured a clear golden color, perhaps oranger than most light lagers, with long-lasting white foam and lace. Mostly neutral aromas and flavors, but very faint mild malt, high-fructose corn syrup, distant hops. Rough, but not as horribly artificial or chemically as other macro adjunct light lagers. Light body, spritzy carbonation. Crisp, dry lager finish. Drinkable but progressively worsened as it warmed.

Sweet like regular High Life, and I canít taste much difference between the two. This is a bit lighter, is all.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours pale yellow. White head that disappears rather quickly. Smell and taste of corn and a little of hops. Boring.

Honestly, I canít tell you the difference between all the Macro light beers. They are all equally bad.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2012 BOTTLE. Make sure yours is cold. Not much here besides food coloring. There is a bit of sweetness to this beer that mixes with the tin flavor to make this better than a Bud Light. Too much carb (both CO2 and carbohydrates) to be enjoyable.

For what its worth, this is my favorite light beer. That being said, it?s still a light beer. Urine color, not much taste/aroma, light bodied. It is what it is. Make sure you drink it cold.

This really is a bad as it gets. Somehow even more watery than bud light. Tastes like wet cardboard.
