Light golden amber in color, clean and clear, moderate cap of bone white froth - so far so good. Scent pale and non-existent, only positive is no off-notes. Same with taste, pale and faint, hint of malt that is neither sweet or toasted, no off notes. Light bodied, bubbly. Nothing much going on here, but id take it over any other BMC Light product as it didnt have much in the way of off-notes.

12 ounce bottles poured into a pilsener glass.

Appearance: It is supposed to be a "Light" amber but it is light for an amber but dark for a light lager.1 finger of dull white fizzy foam thinning to a film in about 1 minute. Clear and clean with some nice carbonation bubbles.

Smell: At serving temperature there was really no aroma. After warming up after about 20 minutes I could detect a wet grainy aroma.

Taste: Smooth with a dry finish that did not linger. No hop flavor. If anything a low malt taste.

Mouth Feel: Not as thin as your typical light lager but thin none the less. Nice carbonic sting as it comes on quietly.

Over all: Been there, done that. Moving on now.

2.25/5  rDev -1.7%

A - clear, see-through copper with a short-lived, fizzy white head

S - grainy, sweet

T - grains, caramel, sweet, metallic aftertaste

M - sticky, light bodied, crisp, overcarbonated

This is an incredibly light beer with little flavor. It's crisp and very easy to drink as is expected. The off notes are enough to ruin this one. I won't buy it again.
