2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a bottle - Just another bland, fizzy light beer without a lot of taste or individual chaeacter,,,, it pours straw yellow, has a tall white head, and is generally inoffensive (except to those who want a REAL beer).

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Not a good example of a light beer. Watery and tasteless and only drinkable when so cold you cant taste it.

Bottle is pretty ugly. Off silver label is not attractive. Aroma is sweet and sugary with lots of grain. Taste is sweet and has hints of caramel. Not interesting at all though. Very easy drinking and watery. The mouth is very light.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 Probably as good as any of the cheap, high volume light beers. Chill it to the point of freezing and it is ok.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Originally rated November 2005. Came in a Christmas pack with a bottle of Molson Canadian (not light) and a big tall glass (with a Ottawa Senators logo on it). Pours a nice light golden colour with a medium white head. Retention is poor, but some lacing is found. The nose is quite full, with malt. Watery mouthfeel that is crisp with hardly any aftertaste. Taste of corn is really present, but at least there is taste to this light beer. Real close to the original Molson Canadian (which is what I am about to rate), just lighter ABV. Beats the hell out of Busch Light.

Nothing to special about this Canadian beer-A. Its taste was fine, but flat on flavor-A.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can. Pretty much the standard cheap pale lager formula, bland, tasteless. Watery notes of pale malts and burnt corn. Wouldn’t miss it if it dropped off the face of the planet tomorrow.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
The Moment: Catching up on NBC’s Thursday programming tonight...
Glassware: Cleveland Browns pilsner...
Appearance: A more orange version of the pale Golden; similar effervescence...
Aroma: A pungeant doughy malty sweetness....
Palate: A bit mellow, and a much more bubbly, gassy experience...
Taste: Syrupy sweet, smooth malt finish with little to be done on the way down the throat; clean water, yes--mostly just water...
Overall: Not much of a difference between the Golden and the Light, save the gas and the simplicity of its taste profile; drinkable in vast quantities, but preferably in pong/asshole/regatta/flipcup engagements...
