Pours a medium straw in color with a thin head. Retention was greater than their standard brew, holding for a few minutes before reducing to a surface film, which could be regenerated if desired.

Smells like its big brother, with yeast, corn and hops. Notably thinner on the nose as the sweetness wasn't detected.

Taste is smooth and offers a fairly decent body for a light beer as the carbonation held up throughout the glass. Sweetness noted in the regular beer is gone here. Decent feel and a touch of graininess on the finish yields a better drinkability vs. the typical American Lt. Beer. Not bad, nor was the view.

A fairly standard Light Lager, meant as an ultimate refresher for hot summer days.

And the beer largely pulls it off. Though the flavors are estremely light, showing only hints of pilsner malts and significant grain character, it carries a clean cracker-like taste with mild floral hop notes. Where the beer doesn't show many flaws or signs of age, there's not much to applaude either. Only a slight sulfury note in taste and feel hurts the beer. Sit me on the beach and give me one of these any day.

Poured into a Pint Glass...

Appearance-Straw pissy yellow. Absolutely no head at all after a fairly aggressive pour which I find odd. Looks about as unappealing as a beer can look, even for a Light beer.

Smell-Skunky lemony grassy aroma. It's what you'd expect.

Taste-There is more flavor in a Miller Lite, wehich makes me prefer this beer over it. It's the closest beer to tasting like water that I've ever had. I get a very light lemon taste that is immediately taken away from the carbonation.

Mouthfeel-Very highly carbonated, Saying this beer is light bodied is an overstatement.

Overall-I prefer water with a slice of lemon.
