Ok new beer from WEinhard's looks like they replaced the regular Amber with a Light version..Im upset , Iiked the regular Amber
Ok this is a ligtbeer with 135 cal per serving.
The appearance of the beer as it pours into my glass is quite attractive..its a dark but crystal clear amber colour with a nice sized solid off white head that lingers long.
The smell is pretty clean and fresh but not strong at all..some hops a little malt.
Tatse is actually quite good for a lighter beer..nice and sweet slightly roasted chocolate malts a small hop bite to finish.
Not too bad a feel on the tongue..quite smooth.
I have to say this is quite a drinkable beer..and not to shabby for a Light beer..I would say this is the best light i have tasted even better than Sam Adams Light weusebio (69) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Another Henry's beer which excels only in mediocrity. Nothing really worth noting except that I would never buy this beer, but i'd drink it if one was offered to me...not that that's saying much, but it isn't as horrible as some. drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2003
What kind of crap is this? My roomate is short on funds so he bought the stuff, but I don't suggest buying in under any other circumstance. Watery malt mixed with that typical Macro taste - which shows where the brewery is going.$$$ Ernest (7696) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), lightly hoppy (grapefruit, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Poor aftertaste kills this one's score, but otherwise it's just kind of bland. BillKismet (4064) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Although the name says "light," this was a fairly standard amber and maybe the best of their brews I have tried to date. Medium mahogany body with a fluffy, amber tinged head. Easy malt aroma, somewhat dank, but with a subtlized sweetness and fluttering of hops. The flavor was a hop and malt blend with puddles of peaches. Again ,some dankness/fustyness to it, but decent overall.

Let me first say that I did NOT pay for this beer. Fake malt backbone that tastes like cornbread. Supposedly cascade hops, but I know what that smells and tastes like, and they didn't use much if any. What a shame. AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2003
This did have a light amber color and white head, but went downhill from there. Very bland, and far to watery for my taste, I wont bother with it again.
