First thing you notice when you lean in for a sniff is that it’s kind of skunky. If you can keep your nose close enough long enough, you start to notice a little maltiness and hops peek out of that skunk’s ass. Then the skunk high-tails it into the flavor. After a few sips you get used to ol’ Mr. Skunk and don’t notice him as much and you realize that the commercials are right: it doesn’t really taste as bland as most light beers. It’s got some definite malt presence with some citrusy notes but it also has that unpleasantness (separate from the skunk) that Heinekin also has, but I can’t place it exactly. Basically, I wish it was more like a light beer so it wouldn’t be so damn hard to drink fast because it becomes near undrinkable when it starts to approach anything resembling warm.

I hated this beer. I was really expecting something better, although I am not sure why. I guess it is true that anything with the word ’light’ should be avoided.

Hey its a light beer. Definitely a light beer for someone who enjoys beer.

Nothing special. Not much aroma, very very tiny hop flavor, barely detectable. No real flavor to speak of.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 If you enjoy the likes of Heineken and Becks, and are looking for a light beer, this one is for you.

This is not nearly as bad as most light beers, in the same way that a rainy day is not nearly as bad as a sleety one. Actually has some flavor (not much). It’s honest to the companys basic product though - it tastes exactly like watered-down regular Amstel. If you insist on light beer, and run across this - order it. You’ll be pleasantly suprised. If you insist on real beer - pass. Trust me.

Plain, not too much of anything going on, certainly beter than most light beers, but thats not saying too much. It has a decent hint of hoppieness, but nothing special.

The best ’lite’ beer I’ve ever had.
