2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cleaning out my fridge, I found a can in the door behind some pretty old opened wine bottles. This could be three years old or better. Light and watery, very bland, but at least the corn adjunct flavors are mild as well!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled at friend’s party and not much different than the full strength Special Export. Pours a light golden pale blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a film and white ring. Aroma of light corn grits, citrus hops and a touch of green vegetables. Taste is light bodied, well carbonated with a popcorn malt flavor with a slight bitter character. Finish is crisp clean cut and no aftertaste. A very watered down lager. Remember to serve this at about 35F degrees or colder.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a light gold with a small head and lace. Not much aroma. What’s there is mainly corn/grains and malt. Taste was similar with corn/grain adjunts predominating at the start and a mild hop finishes it off. Palate was a bit thin. Overall, a typical macro-light that is similar to other Pabst ’lights’ that are brewed in Milwaukee by Miller.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pretty much what I expected when the green bottle was handed to me, although it did look good, clear gold with a frothy white head. But the aroma and the flavor (not to mention the flamora) were sweet corn - - no malt or hops. It has a cloying finish, too. Ready up a chaser if you try this one.

Can. Comes in a 12 oz. can, by the way, but only availiable in a 30 pk. Wow, less than 12 bucks a 30 pk. I remember when Green Death was a quality beer. Never tried the light version, but it 99 degrees and I was trying to avoid beer with flavor. A little corny and slightly metallic, but other than that very little offensive flavors( or any flavors) when served out of an ice filled cooler. People kept telling me it wasn’t very good as they continued to empty the cooler. When the temp goes up, the cost of beer goes down. Mission accomplished.

I couldn’t agree more with antisnobJP. This is one of those beers (Point Special is another) that people bitch about as they guzzle can after can on a hot day.

Cut and paste all these mass produced beers would have a hard time telling any of them apart

Basically a watered down version of the original, just cereal grain on the nose, a hint of skunk, very light, not much flavor.

I keep trying to get my friends to drink better beer but they like the cheapness of this one. Tastes of water and butt.
