UPDATED: APR 6, 2012 Poured a yellow-gold with an intially nice frothy head that faded quickly to minimal lacing that eventually went away entirely. Aroma was sweet - mainly of malt mixed with corn. Taste was of sweet malt which moved into a slight corn favoring and finishing off with a very light hop bitterness. Palate was fairly decent for light beer. Overall, I thought this was fairly decent for a cheap ($5.99/ 12 pk) light brew. I did note that it seemed to taste similar to LaCrosse City Lager which is also brewed at the City Brewery. Perhaps a slight difference in its formulation.

12 oz. can shared by shigadeyo. This is one of those beers I had to try when it was re-released. Pours a clear light golden color with a small white head. The aroma is grainy malts and light citrus. The flavor is bready/grainy malts and light citrus, watery. This is the kind of beer for people that just like to drink but not the negatives of being drunk. It is better than the Burger Classic.

can. Pale gold crystal clear body. More yellow than gold really. Descent white head that actually left some lace. Not much on the aroma except pale malt. Not much corn though, which shines thorugh in many pale lagers. Flavor is very inoffensive and poundable. Could drink this like water. There is also a descent hop presence in there. Best body of any pale lager I have had yet to date -- i.e. not super overly carbonated. Very light smooth body with medium low carbonation. Overall: very sessionable easy drinker. Not much character, but better than most lights.

I would prefer this light beer over almost any in its style. Has a nice smooth finish, perfect after a long day in the sun.

Can from shigadeyo. Poured clear pale color with a minimal frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

6/28/2009: Bürger Light is lighter, softer, smoother, and slightly sweeter than the regular Bürger Classic. I actually like it better too.

12 fl. oz. can from 12-pack purchased at Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield, Ohio. Rating #21 for this beer.

Re-realeased through Hudepohl-Schoenling. Pours extremely light yellow color with a big white head. Sweet malt aroma, not a whole lot else. Really nothing special, a blind tasting may be in store.

This beer is more classical than it is good. Very cheap on the counter. We used it to batter chicken at a restaurant I used to work at.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 The name has got to go. If you get these ice cold, they’re actually pretty good. I like Hamm’s special light a lot more.

Haha, I got this for 4 dollars a case. no reason not to buy one. Pretty gross, but it kept me buzzed. Tastes kinda skunky, kinda fizzy. Carbonation tickles my tongue a bit. cant beat that price!
