Drink it with a lime. Drink all imported beers with spanish names in clear bottles with limes. Makes me smile. A light beer with 5% alcohol. I think it is redonkulously good. Perhaps redoubledonkulously good. If you ranked all light beers on 6-pack vibes, this can’t possibly be beat. Twelve will make you sputter Tagalong slurs at your grandma.

rondphoto (2267) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 11, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light amber with a rocky white head cover, blotches of lace. Taste is malt and carbonation that is so light it seems like maybe this has been watered down. Shocking to think this little taste could muster up 5% abv.

Read the label, look at the beer. You’re not in for a surprise in this one. If there’s one good thing I can say about this beer, it’s that the taste is not nearly as bad as the nauseating aroma.

Grumbo (630) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
From historic notes, bottle during stay in Davao, Philippines. Pours a pale amber colour with a very small white head. Aroma is sweet, with some hop evident. Quite heavy on sweetness, light body, average carbonation.

goozen (3064) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle 0,33ltr: Golden colored brew with an slightly mildly bitter taste, just another "Corona"like brew but little bit better.Works very well this beer also at an Dutch hot summer day, bought the beer at Amazing Oriental, The Hague.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is sweetness plus some malt. No skunk detected, unsurprisingly, as there seem to be homeopathic amounts of hops in this beer. The flavour? Well, a bit of malt, a bit of tartness, no bitterness. Just plain water. Well, not so plain , since there is an unpleasant note in the aftertaste, midway between stale rice and cardboard. If not for the high carbonation, this one would be absolutely undrinkable.

jmgreenuk (4919) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle at the German Beerhouse, Bangkok. Poured a clear straw colour with a bubbly white head. The aroma is zesty citrus. The flavour is super light bitter with a light watery refreshing citrus palate. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Cooled down and with a chunk of lime it’s ok on a hot day. I’ve tasted worse.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2014
355ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: This beer smells mildly sweet, with just a little hint of corn. No discernible hop, but not offensive at all. Appearance: This beer has a crystal-clear, bright yellow body. This beer has a low amount of visible carbonation, and a thin, white cap. This beer leaves thin lacing. Taste: This beer is lightly flavored. This beer has a light malt-forward flavor. The malt flavor has little to no trace of adjuncts. There is no discernible hop flavor, and just a shadow of bitterness. This beer’s flavor is inoffensive, non-aggressive, and easy to drink. Palate: This beer is light bodied, but not watery. This beer is highly carbonated. This beer’s finish is short, and ends on very fine bitterness. This beer’s finish is a little sticky. Overall: This beer is a fine light beer; there is nothing about it that actively offends or disgusts. This beer is a beer I would choose if offered alongside other light beers.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 24, 2014
Bottle from local Yamaya store. Light sewer nose, abattoir, and washed up flotsam under the pier. Bright medium straw color. Mild spritzy, crappy initial / malt is so thin / goes a bit sourish and even funky / then a lousy tingling sweetness. Thin, watery. Rather unpleasant overall.
