1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
I did actually pay for this. I wish I hadnít but it was only for a friend who I have a lot of time and respect for who was on a regime of light beer and exercise. This beer is a bit of a letdown if Iím honest. It attempts to keep the flavour of Steinlager but without the alcohol for the flavour to bond to becoming a mildly repellent fizzy thing. What flavour there is is of coarse malt, very little hop and it doesnít matter cold or warm, you wonít want another.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Kind of an odd duck here. Served cold and poured with a smallish, white head that settle to a light, scummy cover and lots of lace. Color is a clear yellow with some bubble trails. Aroma is mainly skunk ( stored in cooler near fluorescent lites) with a little malt and hop. Flavor is mainly hop bitter and carbonic tang with a little malt/grain sweetness. For such a low alco/calorie beer the flavor stands out, but in a way that isnít all that pleasing. Body is ok and carbonation is sharp. Finish is like flavor, long, bitter, and acid sharp.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma has notes of grain, metal, and alcohol - weird for a light beer. The flavor is sweet with notes of grain and a bit of hay and metal, leading to a dry metallic finish. The body is thin.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours golden, white head. Strong grassy aromas, skunky and funky. Flavour is lightly malty, a bit of skunky hops, watery, no body.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (BBD 31.07.09). This was a bit of a surprise. Donít get me wrong, Iím not going to become a faithful Steinlager Light drinker, but if for whatever reason you had to drink a light lager, then this is among the best Iíve tried (Heineken Light is another). There is a very pronounced grassy skunky hop aroma and flavour, along with a decent amount of sweet pale malts for a lager this light (2.5% ABV). Quite flavourful compared to North American light lagers (Coors Light, Bud Light, etc). A standout within its class, keeping in mind we are talking about a light pale lager here.

Oh Dear! What an insipid excuse for a beer. No taste, no flavour, no head, in fact who called this a beer at all?

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle 33cl. Clear golden body with a small white head. Sweet citrus in the nose. A touch of hops and sweet malt in the light flavour.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving some laces. Fresh, lightly citrusy aroma. Light-bodied with sweetish malt accents and a discreet bitterness in the finish. Not too bad for a light Pale Lager. 280108

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, pours a clear dark gold with a white frothy head. An unoffensive sweet malt aroma, with some metalicness. A thin and dry palate with a neutral hoppy flavour, wiht increasing carbonation with the swallow. For a lower alcohol lager, it passes.
