Ungstrup (35894) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 26, 2013
Bottled. A yellow beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of straw and eggs. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, eggs, and malt, leading to a dry finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

BVery (9985) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Clear yellow pour with no head after the initial carbonation died down in about 5 seconds. Very mild nose and taste - not offensive, but bland all the way around.

Mild grains in aroma and flavor, not much else to this. It was easy to drink and not nasty in anyway, not bad overall.

Ah man! Do I have to rate a Diet Schells Lager? Fine... Pours a light, nearly clear yellow straw brew with a thin head that doesnt even try. Speaking of trying, I tired to get a lacing but it just wasnt there. Aroma is multi-grain (near beer-ish) breakfast corn flakes cereal with a touch of water. Sorry, this is just not the "Breakfast of Champion" type of brew one. Taste is light, crisp and watery. Palate is an attempt of bitterness but it just couldnt fool me. At least the beer drinkers who still believe the beers of the 1970s are the best will be happy with this product.

Dare I say it... this "light" didnt make me want to wretch my guts out. Pours a very light yellow with a small head. Very low-key aroma and taste with a little hops in there. In all, its a safe bet as it doesnt offend, but it doesnt really offer anything either.

Pours a light golden yellow. Aromas of minor hops, corn, grains. Flavor is light, crisp, watery with a little hop and a touch of bitterness in the finish.

Id choose this light beer of any save Samuel Adams. Light and nice. Bready, nothing crazy. Tried at the brewery with Vaughn and Amanda.

Can, in the bedroom... just now.
The beer pours a very light pale yellow color with a quick rise & fall head.

The aroma is honestly sort of sweet & grape like. Its got some herbal hops & some light graininess. But its pretty odd.

The flavor is perfectly fine, lightly sweet with minimal adjunct character and a pleasant enough herbal bitterness to keep it balanced. Zippy & refreshing.

Not as great as I wanted a light version of Deer Brand to be, but fine enough
