I'd have to say as far as widely available light lagers go this is the best option. Although it's a bit low on the abv compared to others in the class, with this beer the consumer will sacrifice about .8% abv for 100% better taste.

As with Yuenglings lager this doesn't possess the adjunct flavors associated with American lagers. It has a nice barley graininess, slight caramel malt but an off putting metallic watery quality. It also holds a rather harsh sharpness in flavor and taste with a sour after taste. Fan of the standard but this is not worth the dip in taste to save some calories.
