good flavor and aroma............................................. Beer Guy99 (251) - Maineville, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2005
I like this beer - for a light lager. It has more flavor and character than most light beers. Good golden color, holds a head longer than most of its type. Flavor has a bite! Like real beer should! Bud Light, Miller Lite and the others can’t come close to this beer. It’s quite good for the type. GrainBeltGuzzler (249) - Goodhue, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2005 Pretty good for a light beer, better than most other light I would have to say, make sure you are rating "City Light" instead of "Brew City Light" little difference in Name big difference in quality Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Light straw color,small white head that faded quickly.Very well carbonated in the pour,with the aroma being light malt and a light lemony side,faint hops.Very nice flavor albeit lightly flavored but much better then some other lights i’ve had.Mild malt taste with a mild lemony appearance and mild hops with a slight,faint hop bitterness.This is a nice brew that i think i could drink almost daily.Thanks to GrainbeltGuzzler for sending this brew my way.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2017 Light bodied. Poured into tumbler cup, pale color. I sense some stinky cheese, there is really no bitterness to this beer from what I taste.

This beer is just like a bud or busch light. It has a little more flavor though. It is even better out of the tap, but bottles are very decent. Tricountybeer (167) - Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Nearly no aroma, yellow, clear, no head. Moderate, creamy mouth feel. Pleasant light hop flavor with a sweet aftertaste.
overall good beer ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2003
A little darker in color than the La Crosse Light and definitely better. City Light is made from the same recipe as the original Special Export Light. Not a bad value proposition considering the low price. When in La Crosse, I would definitely buy this before Bud Light. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2004
This canned brew poured a large white head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting softly carbonated bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body was a softly carbonated transparent light orange color. The aroma was very mildly malty. The palate was mildly tingly at the start with a smooth malt hop finish. It has some flavor actually. Not bad for a light beer. I found it hard to add more to the description of the flavor. Onslow (1552) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 25, 2018
Pour from a 12oz can. Aroma of dough, berries, some weird medicinal notes. Taste is sweet and fruity up front then those cheap aromatic hops that pop up in cut rate beers emerge - thankfully fairly constrained. Ends with metal. Bought a single for a buck just for the tick.
