Reviewed from notes.

A. Transparent pale pilsner yellow color and a bubble-bath sudsy foam head of two fingers with mild retention levels and lacing alike.

S. Light metal and light grainy, cracker malt. Faint cooked vegetables but nowhere near as offensively vegetal as some other "beers" I've had.

T. Some stale light watered-down malts, again mostly of the saltine cracker variety. Its like bargain basement crystal and pale malts were super diluted in here. The light metallic tones in the nose are actually not present in the flavor, which I am pleasantly surprised by.

M. Watery and thin but that is true to the style, I suppose.

Honestly, for the price point I was expecting something much worse than what I received, I could have (and yes, I have) done much worse than this particular brew. It's... tolerable. It could even work as a lawnmower beer if you cared very little about flavor yet didn't want to drink straight water.

Out of a can this Light Lager was an urine yellow (really) color with one finger of white head. The head was short lived but it did show some retention as a collar that left scant lacing. The aroma was a faint blend of corn and rice. The flavors were bad. I tasted an unpleasant mix of corn, rice and cardboard. Slightly sour as well. It reminded me of Kix cereal, only stale/rancid. The mouthfeel was watery, the body light and the carbonation medium. Garbage.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

A : The usual ultra pale yellow, very clear. Pretty moderate sized head that leaves behind some nice lacing.

S : Ever so faint grains. Bit of the usual old adjuncts.

T : Same as the scent. Adjuct grains and an ever so slight sweetness round this one out.

M : Very thin. Nice amount of carbonation.

D : Extremely easy drinkability. Nice for slamming back.

Meh.
