I had this one under the name ’Lightship’. Without doubts my favourite light beer. faroeviking (10913) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 1, 2007
Tasty easy to drink beer with low calories. Thin but still some good maltiness. PhillyBeer2112 (2850) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2006
I like how now and again I’ll scour my old notes and find something not entered! First my memories of this: Always was surprised by how good this was, at least, as far as light beers went. It wasn’t something I had regularly but never turned it down. My notes: darkish gold with a honeyed character (both aroma and flavor). Clean, boring. Medium bodied. Just enough hops.

While slightly better than the new SA Light, it was a light beer and thus deserves your scorn. Drink less, but better, as opposed to this. I drank a bit of this in the day and always felt cheated after I did. BREWMUSKCLES (2686) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 6, 2007
IT WAS LIGHT AND REFRESHING. TASTED LIKE A LIGHT CARAMEL MALT AND THEN BEER. YEARS AGO IT HAD A BETTER MORE HOP FLAVOR. A BIT RESINY AND PINEY.

From old tasting notes. Amber gold color. Nice foamy white head. Subtle floral hop aroma. Tangy malt flavor with light hops. Smooth an balanced. Decent flavor for a light beer. Panzuriel (2256) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2002
This one is nasty. I think I got the last bottle in Ohio. Then they stopped making this crap. It’s pretty light beer-ish with an attempt to spice things up. REally doesn’t work all that well. Ends up being fizzy, watery and thin. Oh so thin. BroSpud (2188) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 13, 2009
I remember having one of these several years back and not liking it. It is good for what it is it’s just that I don’t like what it is. Better than most other light beers yet still tasting of water and lacking flavor. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 13, 2002
Other than the bad name, I don’t know why BBC gave up on this in favour of the present Light,it’s been years since I had this beer,but I recall it being a great escape from ’light’ beer without the lack of flavour of a craft brew.
