Pale yellow, small head, lots of bubbles. Hoppy, aroma. Decent taste, blend of malt and hops, more hoppy than malty. Maybe some rice malt. A hint of sweetness and sugar on the finish. Pretty carbonated.

bgiamatei (317) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 18, 2008
Cerveja pilsen light. Atendeu as espectativas, quais sejam, uma cerveja leve, aguada e refrescante. Colorao amarelo outro, espuma branca sem grande formao. Cheiro de cereais. Um pouco aguada, cereais no sabor. Leve, refrescante. Normal.

This is a two word review, Bud Light. One of three japanese beers I had at a dinner engagement and this disappointed. I remembered Kirin Light being fairly good. Not this one.

Pretty standard light beer. Looks like nothing, smells like nothing and tastes like nothing. Its certainly not offensive but its hard to say its good. Its carbonated water with a dash of alcohol.

BelgianBeerGal (3971) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Bottle poured into a dimpled mug. It was happy hour, they were 2 for 1. Its a boring, fizzy pale lager. Fine with sushi. Prefer Kirin Lager.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Not very appealing beer here. Pours a light yellow color into the pint glass with almost no head. Very thin lacing, mouthfeel and palate.

DuffMan (9999) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2007
I just finished rating Sam Adams Light, and this beer is pretty much cut from the same cloth-- pale yellow gold, light clean grainy body, crisp dry finish. Bland, but not offensive. Enjoyed with Sushi in the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.

bu11zeye (13011) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2007
(Bottle, at Thai restaurant) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small, quickly diminishing, white head. Light aroma of sweet malt, cereal, and grass. Flavor of mild grass hops and light sweetness with a watery mouthfeel. Though very bland to the senses, it complemented the spicy Thai well.

12 oz bottle. 3.31, are you kidding me? Hand me a Becks Premiere Light. This beer has NO aroma, nor flavor. Totally weak. Kirin Light = Sparkling Water.
