2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a light straw yellow with fast fading fizzy white head. Aroma of light malt, light corn grain, light hop citrus. Flavor is the same. light, watery mouthfeel with extremely high carbonation. Overall, I would say if you had to drink a light beer, this is the one to go for.

I actually think that this is one of the better light beers that I’ve had. its clean and crisp with only a mild cornish finish. for what it is, its pretty good.

Thin yellow with no head or lace. Light malt, paper, lemon on the nose. Lemon, wet paper flavor. Thin and fizzy but drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is weak and inoffensive with just malt and a touch of grassy hops. The appearance is very straw gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin like most of the style. There really isn’t much to say about this beer.

Not a bad light beer, but not a good beer at all. It’s good for the bottle, and for session drinking -- that is, if you don’t want to drink Bud Light and shell out around $9.00 for a six-pack. To be honest, it was what I expected: a decent light beer with a great bottle and a fun spirit, nothing more.

Suttree’s Nothing else to do in Mid-February Tasting. Sample from a bottle shared by me. Clear yellow, white cover. Aroma is crisp, faint corn. Taste is more corn, simple and not as buttery as the regular Red Stripe.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(bottle - 330 ml) Clear gold with a fizzy head. Faint aroma of grass, corn, and malt. Dry malty flavor at the beginning with a faint fruity sweetness near the middle. Finishes clean with a light sweetness followed by a little bitterness. It’s a beer.

11.2 ounce stubby bottle - $1.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow body with a head that quickly fizzles out into a thin white ring before you’ve even set the bottle down.
Smell: Smells like somebody opened up a bag of Fritos! I’d rather have the Fritos, to be honest.
Taste: Incredibly faint maltiness though with very little sweetness. There’s a carry over of the corn chips from the disheartening aroma. No real apparent hop presence. Weak, watery, corn-laden finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.
Drinkability: Hooray Beer-lite! While it probably has a place served up on a hot, sunny beach somewhere, it’s just not too terribly enjoyable here in Georgia during the waning days of Winter.
