Well, what can I say? I was thirsty as all-get-out, and it’s hotter than a Wookiee’s temper here in Atlanta. I decided to give it a try. Guess what - it exceeded my expectations. Crisp aroma is better than what I expected. It’s called Light, but it actually smells like beer! OK, not an outstanding aroma, but at least it doesn’t smell like water. It pours a rather typical clear, wan straw yellow with not much head. Flavor is nothing special - but as I said, better than what I expected from a mega-brewed light beer. Crisp, malty with a hint of fruit. Texture is fairly fizzy, smooth, average body. For a light beer, and a megabrewed pale lager, not half bad.

Not at all what I exepected from this beer.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass;

Appearance: Light amber in color, the head was about 1 finger with nothing for lacing on the glass.
Smell: I found it to have a old musky smell, what I would describe as a very old book in a very old house.
Mouthfeel: Definatly a lighter beer, could not detect any real flavors of hops, it had a stale taste to it. After taste was just alcohol.
Overall: I actually thought I might enjoy this beer with all the hype put into it. I was disappointed with it. If I drink any thing like this, I will stick with regular Bud Light.

A- Pours just like a bud light. Clear, yellow-golden color. Very fizzy head, but no retention or lacing.

S- Kinda smells like a malt liquor. Very malty and sweet scents on the nose. Mostly cereal malts, rice, corn, etc.

T- Tastes like it smells. Very sweet, and just like a malt liquor. Very light with tons of cereal grains. No hops detectable.

M- Very light and very carbonated. Capitalizes on the word "drinkability." Light and refreshing on such a hot day.

Overall, on hot days where this is ice cold, is about the only use for it. About the same as bud light, just with more alcohol and a little sweeter.
