Kräftig Light is clean and malty with no lingering aftertaste. A well-balanced brew in terms of hops and malt. Flavorful. Refreshing.

A - Pale, golden yellow. Poured from a can straight into the center of the glass. Fizzy head dissipated as quick as it formed.

S - Grain and corn with some yeasty notes.

T - Subtle sweet grain. Minimal hop flavor but there is some bitterness to balance. Malt flavor is better than average for the style.

M - Crisp, clean and moderately high carbonation that is perfect for the style.

O - Very good example of the style. Flavor approaching a more premium american lager, but in the ABV range and calorie range of a light lager. Very clean flavor. I don't see any major faults considering the style. I would suggest at least giving it a try.

A - Pours a very light straw color with a nice 2 finger fluffy white head. Very nice carbonation as well

S - Not much on aroma. Smells like corn

T - Honestly a pretty decent light lager. It does have a little flavor. Seems slightly grassy.

M - Quite thin as expected.

O - A good alternative to Bud Light. It does have slightly more flavor. Nothing special though

A - Poured out a pale, golden yellow color with a one-finger, bubbly head of foam. It left little to no lacing.

S - It smelled of grains with some floral notes.

T - It had a sweet grain flavor with a touch of caramel and a slight spicy bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied lager with a dry finish.

O - This is an okay light lager. Better than most that are out there.

Kraftig Light has a thick, slightly off-white head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance. There is no lacing associated with this beer. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up sweetness, light barley malt, and metal. Taste is of very mildly-roasted malt, sweetness, some aluminum, and bread. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Kraftig Light finishes crisp, fairly refreshing, drinkable, and mostly dry. Overall, this is at best and average light beer. There are no foul aspects, however.
