Lite is just another offering in the vast stable of American Macro brews, and my rating reflects that.

The apperance is pale yellow with a decent head, but it is clearly more water than beer. The smell is almost non-existant, the faintest whiff of malt is there, but I think it was mainly because I was looking for it.

Taste and mouth are both bland. The taste is just water with the slightest hint of malt, the mouth is non-existant...no hops kick, no creaminess, it's just there and carbonated, which isn't good enough in my book.

The only thing it can rate average on is drinkability, and that is only because drinking this is like drinking water. It is so watered down that it becomes quaffable, not that I would want to.

The bottom line is that I had some of this because it was free, and I still felt that I'd made a bad choice by leaving store brand Root Beer in the cooler and having it.

One of those beers that is always around at family gatherings but rarely drank, and even then never contemplated. It pours an extremely pale sickly yellow color, with a decent level of lasting surface coverage at least. Feeble head of loosely textured foam that resembles a scouring pad in density. Some wispy lace around the edges of the glass, and rapidly rising trails of champagne carbonation visible.

Basic soggy grain aroma, minerally wet dishrag, nondescript to the point of nonexistence.

Taste is dull and flat, ghostly pilsner malt and corn with a faint hint of apple from the lager yeast in the aftertaste. Watery and overly gassy with co2. Finishes very clean, like nothing almost. An ubiquitous macro, just one of those things that blends into the landscape, like stale pretzels and dirty ashtrays. Unexciting and bland from all angles.

Pairs well with reruns of BBQ Pitmasters and United States of Bacon.
