One of the only Light Beers I have order while at on the town. It is better than all the other "Light" beers including Amstel light. Still a little weak on the appearance and aroma, but still another nice beer from the Boston Beer Company.

"for a light beer, one of the best, but that’s not really saying that much. None of the bad qualities that typically infiltrate the cheaper light beers, it’s just a thinner, less exciting version of their flagship beer."

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2015 Hands down the greatest light beer I have ever tasted. I don’t drink a lot of light beer but sometimes after the holiday gorge it’s not a bad idea to substitute a 6 pack of these in the rotation here and there, I don’t care what beer snobs say. Nice caramel, light hops, clean and refreshing. An American light beer that tastes good with no adjuncts.

I’ve gotta say, this ain’t half bad at all. Tastes just like a watered down Boston Lager, but that’s a good thing too. Very nice alternative for a weekday brew when you just want to wet the whistle without getting all torn up for next morning.

Transfer from BA review on 2-25-13 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours an amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades relatively fast to leave only a light amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of caramel and roasted malt mixed with lighter floral and citrus notes.
Taste – The taste starts out of caramel malt mixed with a corn like taste. As the taste advances some hints of hop flavor come to the tongue. The hop is of a more herbal and citrus in nature and in the end with the caramel flavor leave a mainly sweet kind of herbal like taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The beer is on the thinner side with respects to body with a carbonation level that is on the slightly standard side. Both make for a rather refreshing taste and are appropriate for the style.
Overall – A tastier version of a light beer with more hop and malt characteristic for the “light” lager style. While nothing to pine over it is rather refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 Very light and rather watery, but very clean and refreshing. As light beers go this is pretty good.

Pours a amber color with a thick white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malts and some hops. The taste is similar. For the style it’s a great beer.

Generically fine. I guess I prefer this to the BL,CL,MLs of the world, but really it is just about as nondescript as they get. Coppery appearance. Usual malty lager profile. Bready. Watery.
