Can (thanks Jukka). Very pale yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma is grains, some maizelike sweetness, mild hay, rubber and some slight earth cellar notes. Flavour is kind of strange sweetish grainy notes along with mild herbs, hay and some slight rubbery notes. Watery palate. "Full taste"...

Can. Drank straight from the can because it’s Tecate Light. A grainy base, some faint corny sweetness, nearly no bitterness, and a quick and relatively inoffensive finish. Not bad.

trapped (2321) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 15, 2016
Can on the plane. Pale yellow with small foamy white head, faint malt aroma, high carbonation, very little malt no hops (hop backwards? hop regressive?) nice spring water feeling. Finish? What finish? How do you define finish if it does not start at all? At least not horribly sweet, skunky or otherwise unpleasant.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2016 Tallcan to cup. Lemon wheat aroma. Clear pale yellow, pure white head, active. Watery hay, a slight odd bitter/sour off taste. Body is nearly flat carbonated water. This may have been my first light beer, I expected worse but it wasn’t terrible.

Reid (2338) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2016
24 oz can from local Circle K $2.49 Pours the lightest yellow i have seen in a beer..head paradoxically is thick and creamy and white. Aromas of cardboard and creamed corn,,tiny herbal hop. Taste is very meek.cream corn and a bit of hay..touch of grassy hop..barest touch. Mouth feel is thin but on this side of OK. Its a light beer and not too bad.

Una cerveza ligera y económica. Es una buena opción para calmar la sed y al ser light se pueden tomar varias sin mayor problema.

Pours a very clear, very pale light straw color. Well carbonated, large bubbles streaming from bottom. Initial 3+ finger head. Short lived. Light retention, light lacing.

Aroma is so very light. Barely anything there. Cereal, or corn flakes. Maybe a touch of honey.

Taste is better. Very light. Very lightly toasted malt or corn. Light honey. No hops. Very watery.

Palate is very clean and watery. Very light. Very refreshing. It’s wet, very lightly crisp. Kinda slick going down.

Overall, hey this is pretty good. Yes, it’s so very light, but for what it is, it’s incredible. I could see myself buying this again. I would recommend it also.
