Pours clear yellow, some carbonation, head disappears quickly. Aroma of water with a little beer, the taste is the same. Perfect for beer thirty, or after working in 100 degree heat all day. Otherwise, avoid.

Really isn’t much aroma. Looks almost clear. Flavor is very thin and plain, but not too funky. A lot of metal from the can though. Not good.

bhensonb (12023) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Light aroma of pale malt, and mayhap a hint of corniness; a little dusty. The color is light brassy gold, and the white head left when I turned my head. Thin to medium body, light, nearly creamy, carbonation. The flavor is substantial; a bit of bread, very light bitter, a touch sweet. Indeed it is not offensive, and it surpasses most American lights. It is a light beer with full taste. Just not my taste.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2007
Transparent and pale straw yellow in color with a fuzzy laundry foam head. Aroma is at the root of all that is evil. Cornmeal, potato skins, corn husks and sweet cream over carnation oatmeal accompanies wafts of dirty, spoiled nectar. Flavor is light as expected, yet a touch less offensive that the aroma had indicated. Light, biscuity bread and low fat croissants. Partially baked cornmeal pizza crust. Fading carbonation never keels completely off kilter, finishing with toasted cornmeal, cornflakes, golden biscuits and diluted honey.

mjg74 (2681) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Can from Food 4 Less. Light yellow color upon pouring. Acidic grainy aroma. Light grainy flavor with a touch of bitterness. Pretty bland, but at least it isn’t really offensive.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle, very watery, really tasted like water, nothing terrible, but just bland, very slight corn, drinkable on a hot Cali night.

I had this one from a bottle at a restaurant. Really, I couldn’t get much of an impression of this one at all. It had no aroma, and the taste was nearly non-existent--except for a hint of corn. The best I can describe it is by saying it tastes like most pale lagers. It did go okay with the ribs I had.

Had at the bar at aquaworld after going jetskiing for a few hours, so it was somewhat refreshing. Poured out of a can extremely pale yellow with some very fizzy white head that immediately dissapears. Aroma and flavor both metallic and corny. Overall, not very good at all.

12 oz. bottle. Just like in the old Michelob commercial: "Tecate makes a light?" And it’s only had 25 ratings in 6 years! Well, now it’s at Sam’s Wines in Downer Grove, in the loose bottle rack. So I can buy just one instead of a pack.
Thin corn-yellow pour, brief head. For a light, it’s got a very sugary smell, almost like a cheap Russian malt liquor. Taste is mostly corn soda, if anything. I shouldn’t rate this as low as I am, since it’s more tasteless than bad tasting.
