Single bottle from Total Wine. Light corny aroma with a slight noble hop lilt. Pale golden color with a white head that flattened fast. Near medium body with creamy fizzy carbonation. The flavor is not corny, rather light noble hop and light pale malt. Finish is much the same, but has a very slight herb/grass note. The bitter is better than many macros.

Ubiquitous pale yellow american lager appearance. Typical lager flavors with some citrus. Above average enjoyable carbonation. Some hay in the aroma. Pretty much as described except for the ’most advanced evolution of light beer’. Not offensive. Cannot detect much alky, if any.

"Elegant in flavor" my ass. This smells like water that has a bit of pancake syrup in it. It tastes like very mildly malted water. It’s not offensive, just boring as a dog’s ass and bland as hell.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2007
I expected a bland watery brew, but this one was quite flavorless, some slight grain, not much carbonation, little aftertaste, blah, but not bad tasting, just like water!

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - SEP 20, 2007
Light Sapporo beer=tastless, odor less and extremely carbonated. Thirst quencher, and better than drinking water.

12 oz. bottle. Poured into a Sam Adams glass: I want to give this a fair chance to impress me. Pale, straw-yellow body under pillowy head that’s "gone in 60 seconds." Smell of skunk and oxidation. First taste is kind of sour and pissy, with old banana in the background. No improvement as I drink further down. Just stays watery, sour and bad-coffee bitter instead of hop bitter. Not much malt to find. From the loose bottle rack at <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/downers-gr Wines in Downers Grove.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle. Pours almost lifeless and yellow. Head diminishes quickly leaving a thin body of tainted orange/yellow. Smells like hoppy mineral water, and tastes about the same but with the added bonus of a weak malt presence. Watery palate. Good for sake bombs but not much else.

ilovedarkbeer (2741) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2007
does not taste good. you drink this with sake bombs when you are worried about carbs. tastes like watered down regular sapporo.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2007
Bottled, whilst in NYC. Extraordinarily poor beer. Possibly defining its’ own category, the ’Super Light’ category. Pale yellow, light on everything.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 20, 2007
really not that bad, has a decent light hop addition to complement the light malts and probably the use of corn syrup or rice. But still better than most light amderican beers.
