3.35/5 rDev +39%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
12 ounce bottle poured into a pilsener glass.
Appearance: Very nice...darker, more golden yellow. Clear although I noticed some very small "floaters" suspended in the beer. A nice white that faded off slowly leaving some nice lacing for a light beer. A few carbonation bubbles rising up from the bottom.
Smell: A fair amount going on...some malt, some hops, dry piney citrus aroma, fruity and floral.
Taste: Nice hop bitterness for a light beer. The finish lingered after going down. Very pleasant taste. Crisp and semi-dry.
Mouth Feel: Thin to medium body with a semi-dry finish. Nice carbonation bite.
Overall: This is a very good light beer. It exceeds expectations, for me anyway, for a light beer. Pleasant tasting and easy to drink. I have tried a number of light beers and to date this was the best. Until i find another light beer to be better this would be my favorite.

330 ml can served cold into a glass.
Appearance- fairly rich golden color, with a nice helping of two and a half fingers of head. This dissipates quickly however. Significant amount of bubbles in the see through beer.
Smell - slightly metallic, and other than that some mild adjunct aromas especially corn and nothing else to speak of. Fortunately nothing off putting either.
Taste- very bland, reminiscent of tonic water with a few adjuncts in there. Bland even by light beer standards. However nothing weird tasting that would give this an even lower score.
Mouthfeel - moderately high carbonation, dry finish in the mouth. Works well with the fizzy water flavor.
Overall - a little more flavor and this could be considered a pretty decent light beer, unfortunately this is extremely bland and water will quench the thirst better. Fortunately enough, there's nothing awful about it either meaning, it serves it's purpose well enough.
