poured a pale yellow color with adequate long-lasting white head. Smell is very minimal with only some slight sweetness noted. Taste follows the smell being very light, but refreshing. Finish is refreshing, but lacks any malt or hop taste. Good spacer.

As far as light American macrobrew beers go, I would rate this beer as decent. This beer pours a light yellow color with no head and has a cereal grain scent. The taste is light and refreshing. Great cold on a hot day where you don't want too much alcohol or too much aftertaste.

Appearance: Bright golden yellow with minimal head....no lace whatsoever...quite unimpressive

Smell: Cereal grains

Taste: Cereal grains with tight oh so tight carbonation

Mouthfeel: extra thin with crisp tingly carbonation

Drinability: No taste and no soul but such a drinkable beer. Great for tailgating

Better than it's full flavored brother. Pours out to a medium golden color with decent carbonation, and a short lived white foamy head. Notes of alcohol, hops and corn were observed on the inital aroma, although a bread like scent was also noted half way through. Flavor is mostly water and corn, but I can see how this could been a good beer on a hot summer day, if it was really cold and there was nothing else. Finished weakly, with the lingering taste of zinc or steel, with a touch of alcohol. Not a terrible brew, but not wonderful either. Worth a try.

12 oz clear longneck with no apparent freshness dating.

The beer pours a gold/yellow with a surprisingly tight head. The foam stayed around longer than expected and I even got a bit of lacing. Better than expected.

Light aroma of corn & malt. Think what must people think beer smells like and then divide by ½. Still, no off or unpleasant aromas.

The taste was slightly sweet with no apparent bitterness at all. Again, no off or horrible taste, just a bit of corn sweetness.

The mouthfeel was thin, but the beer did have decent zippy carbonation. Drinkablity is a tougher call, it is easy drinking and better than Bud or Miller lite, but still a yawner.

The beer leaves the 12-ounce clear bottle a light yellow color with a modest frothy bright white head with the residual lace a thin sheet. Nose is malt, fresh and crisp, the start sweet with a light grain profile and the top skinny in feel. Finish is brisk in its acidity, the hops light and the aftertaste dry.

One of the most common beers on the market today. First of all the the thing that kills me has occasionally made me cry, being here in Germany any one can imagine all the delectable brews on the menu. Saying this it only makes me think down on alot of beer drinkers or should I say haven't got a clue about beer and drink what ever they had laying around the trailer. On the other hand this is a wonderful beer that will produce a good taste, tenderize or put a zip on any meal that you are cooking. I actually sent my wife to the store to buy it because I didn't want anyone actually seeing me buy it. All this aside the beer can chicken that this produces is mouth watering, the bratwurst are to die for and don't get me started on the beer battering. The 3 bucks a six pack keeps me coming back for more. Oh ya, it foams alot when I poor it in the pan and even more when I poor it in the flour for the batter and I allways get my gasmask out to keep the smell out of my nose I would never punish my senses like that so I am not sure of the taste or the mouthfeel.

First off I hate the bottles these beers come in. Clear bottle where you see a beer that turns you off. Very straw yellow, when poured color remains very straw/piss yellow with no head just glass lacing on the top. The smell is very strong of grain and corn, not very lager smelling. Taste is very watered down with a hop taste in the rear. Very light and dull in the mouth, drinkable because it is so light, but will never be in my fridge.

Straw yellow color, with a white head that quickly dissipates. Smells very grainy with a little malt. Taste is almost vacant. After having a couple spiced winter brews tonight,this stuff is closer to water than beer. I can sense a little corn and malt, but not much. Not offensive, but not good by any means.

Typical American beer. Pours a light, golden colour and has a snow white head. Delicate lacing and has the smell of most American beer; light to moderate yeasty/ bready smell. A wee bit sweeter than most other American beers and far more palatable than Bud light, if I may be perimetted to say the "B" word. MGD light goes down easy and is a great inexpensive brew to enjoy in breaks while doing lawn work. I have found the above to hold true with most products from Miller Brewing Company. One thing I particularly like about this brew is that is has a light cracker/biscuit after taste. I had originally given this one 3.0 in all categories, but after some time of drinking it, it has grown on me a little and I notice a few more things about it that I didn't the first go 'round.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Presentation: 12oz. translucent bottle with no "bottled on" or "best by" date; $9.99/18 pack.

Appearance: Sadly enough, pours a rather fetching golden hue; crystal clear; small, snow-white head which is quick to dissipate; light, scattered lacing.

Aroma: Clean; light notes of cooked vegetables.

Taste: Faintly sweet upfront with notes of grain and a flavor I think of as "macro-skunk" throughout; faint, sallow hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Thin, crisp mouthfeel.

Notes: Is what it is. Tasty? No. Cheap? Quite. Drastically lower in calories than, say, your standard pale ale or pilsener? Not really (110 to 150).

My favorite light domestic beer. (My benchmark beer) The kind you drink when you're working in the yard.
Sure, its great for quenching the thirst, but I will review it, like all others, poured into a glass, and consider aroma, feel, appearance, as well as taste and drinkability:

Pours clear, light yellow. Head is present, but dissipates rapidly. The aroma is grainy and acidic, and little else.
Highly carbonated, and light on the tongue.
Taste is faint and grainy but the carbonation helps alot.
Finishes dry, with no aftertaste.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Appearance: Crystal clear medium golden color with a small white head that resembles soap lather; it soon fades to a paper-thin layer. A few bubbles drift lazily to the surface; the lacing is poor.

Aroma: Slightly sharp aroma of tart malt and cooked vegetables, and some mild hops.

Taste: Begins with some slightly tart grainy notes and alcohol, midway through the taste turns mildly sweet. The finish is clean and dry with some mild lingering hops.

Mouth feel: Quite thin and watery, the carbonation is soft drink-like.

Drinkability/notes: Not particularly good, but OK if free, as in “free beer”.

Poured a clear light golden in color with a white head. Mouthfeel is watery and crisp. Weak aroma of some malt, hops... typical Miller beer scent. Feint grainy taste in the finish along with a very light hop bitterness. Very clean overall with some decent palate cleansing ability.

MGD Light is pretty much a substitute for water. Compared to Miller Lite and High Life Light, I'd probably choose this if I had to settle for a Light beer from Miller. Certainly, less offensive from a taste stand point than Bud Light, of course that's not saying much. This beer might serve a purpose on a hot day after mowing the lawn (cliche?) or putting out the flames from some hot buffalo wings or other spicy food. But water works just as well.

Same as any other light beer i can remember having. Pointless to drink really. Real pale color, no taste except for water. The regular beer is terrible, so imagine what the light tastes like. There are worse light beers i guess, but whats that really saying anyways?

Served on tap at a hotel bar with only the Buds in competition. Bland. The appearance was light yellow with not remarkable quality other than general clarity. White, thin with no staying power and a little light lacing. I kept trying to grasp the taste, but there just wasn't anything there. Watery and thin with no aroma to give it a lift. There just wasn't enough of any impression to give a sense of this beer. To say something positive - it beats Bud.

Very carbonated...if you want an evening of beer burps try this. My distributor had cases of cans of this for 9 bucks so I bought one for a party figuring in a best case scenario Id only get 6 of them if that. I was happy when the night was said and done I had only 5 to bring home with me. Smell is very musty with a scent comparable to other brews that rely heavily on corn. Taste is just that of a heavily watered MGD; this is not a smooth drinking brew. After this one I only have four left. I wonder if the dog will drink it? Only one way to find out...(j/k)

Another, "let's make a lite version for the stupid public" beer. Watered down Genuine Draft is all this crap is. If you are that calorie conscience, drink a regular draft on the threadmill. Or better yet, there's always four roses.

Miller already has Miller Lite, so why they need light versions of MGD and High Life is beyond my comprehension. This stuff has even less taste than Miller Lite.

MGD Light pours a bright straw color and leaves a moderately foamy head that lasts for about 2 minutes before disappearing. It smells almost like MGD: mustiness, husky grains and alcohol. The mouthfeel is watery with the same kind of soapy texture as MGD. It evens tastes like the smell. It's a little bitter at first, kind of soapy, and has husky grains/adjuncts and alcohol taste mixed in there. It's very watery elsewhere on the palette. Not much aftertaste save for a little bit of the leftover adjunct taste. No alcoholic warmth whatsoever.

All in all, a very weak light beer. Miller Lite attempts to retain some flavor. This stuff tastes almost exactly like Genuine Draft with even more water in it.

This beer truly has a funny aftertaste. Is it brewed with Hi Karate cologne left over from the 70s? I have tried this on several occasions, and it never improves. Note to self: Quit trying this on any occasion. Overtones of corn with the funky aftertaste just mentioned.

A neighbor gave me one, while I was locked out of my house today. It was pretty good. Golden straw color, not much smell. Decent taste, pretty sweet and watery, not too much flavor. Some graininess on the finish, really have to concentrate to taste anything. But it's way better than a budweiser.

Light, lighter, lightest? No, but its close. Very pale, very clear, lots of bubbles. Its got that Miller corn taste, which I very much prefer over A-B. As the warm weather comes on, it'll probably be the beer I drink when the temperature hits 92 degrees plus, cannot imagine drinking it at any temperature less than that.

I am only reviewing this because it is all I had available all weekend. (at my girlfriend's relatives...the horror...the horror).
Quite honesty, as far as light beers go, this one is close to top-of-the-line, which is not saying much. But in a pinch....well, it is a toss up between this and water, but at least it is not Bud Light.

Taste...there is a taste, but just barely. Imagine leaving the oat pieces from Lucky Charms cereal in a glass of water overnight. Faint grainy taste, not much of a smell, but somewhat of beer.

Basically, if someone has a gun at your head forcing you to choose a light beer....this should be your choice. Otherwise...you should know better.

Presentation: 12 oz can, no freshness date. "Brewed by our genuine cold-filtered trademarked method", what does it say in a beer when you worry about trademarking "cold-filtered"? Hmmm ... draft beer in a can, go figure?

Appearance: Very pale golden yellow with exceptional clarity, a thin webish white lace is what is leftover from a quickly disappearing white head.

Smell: Clean aroma mostly ... a little musty, clean higher alcohols and cooked corn are noticeable.

Taste: Obvious light body, quick aggressive crispness from a moderate level of carbonation that is leftover. Right away are issues of cooked cereal grains and astringent grains, not harsh ones but rather small hurdles. Hops double with the malt issues and make things more intricate. Bitterness is sharp with a thin twang. Cereal grains seem more dominant that the malt leaving a cooked corn grit flavour in the finish.

Notes: A little better in the bottle than the can, either way it is about them same. A beer that must beer served cold. Not a beer to brag about drinking the night before.

Better than Miller Lite, not that this says much. Still, the hops are there and taste like real hops. Thin and bland, as one would expect. Not bad as a back yard cooling off sort of beer.
