FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale straw color with a small white head that faded quickly. The aroma was faintly dry. The flavor was dryish, grainy, lightly tangy and corny. The finish was very short. Inoffensive but nothing substantive to it.

Clear watery yellow in color, small white head. Nose of straw, grapes and pears. The pear flavor is up front, sort of boozy flavor, hot, sort of like sake. Very watery on the palate. I’ve had worse, but my expectations weren’t very high.

kidmartinek (4046) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Poutd piss yellow with no head, foam, or lacing. Smells like charp, blan, bitter, malt, and hops. Tastes like bitter, apple juice, hops, and skunky malt. American lager, pissy, fizzy, body. Bitter, sweet sugar finish.

Had with Saucebox at Tokyo Bowl (alaska,rockN,houston,___) ...Pours a standard yellow with a lower than average head... smell is of faint hops and grain ... taste is surprisingly full for a light, has some grain tastes but nice actually... One of the nicer light beers out there...

bhensonb (12947) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Single bottle from Total Wine. Light corny aroma with a slight noble hop lilt. Pale golden color with a white head that flattened fast. Near medium body with creamy fizzy carbonation. The flavor is not corny, rather light noble hop and light pale malt. Finish is much the same, but has a very slight herb/grass note. The bitter is better than many macros.

cheap (4749) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Ubiquitous pale yellow american lager appearance. Typical lager flavors with some citrus. Above average enjoyable carbonation. Some hay in the aroma. Pretty much as described except for the ’most advanced evolution of light beer’. Not offensive. Cannot detect much alky, if any.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2007
"Elegant in flavor" my ass. This smells like water that has a bit of pancake syrup in it. It tastes like very mildly malted water. It’s not offensive, just boring as a dog’s ass and bland as hell.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2007
I expected a bland watery brew, but this one was quite flavorless, some slight grain, not much carbonation, little aftertaste, blah, but not bad tasting, just like water!

Light Sapporo beer=tastless, odor less and extremely carbonated. Thirst quencher, and better than drinking water.
