1.6/5  rDev -34.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

24 ounce can poured into a pilsener. l No "born on" or "best by" date that I could tell.

Appearance: Clear, light yellow. About a half a finger of foam that disappeared quickly. Some bubbles rising up.

Smell: Slight malt aroma that was overpowered by a wet grainy smell.

Taste: Dry with virtually no flavor. More like carbonated water.

Mouth Feel: Thin and watery with a very slight carbonic bite.

Overall: Saw this at the store and decided to give it a try. It goes down easy but is not a good beer in my opinion.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with an inch thick, soapy white head that dissipates in under a minute. It leaves a pretty nice lacing.

Smell - Pale malts, corn, and grains.

Taste - Sweet with bready malts, grains, and light on the corn.

Mouthfeel - Medium/creamy body with high carbonation.

Overall - This is pretty much your average light lager. Maybe a little better. It's good.

For the price its solid, although super low in abv. It tastes kinda like corn, and cheap grain. Its on the sweeter side, extremly drinkable, very minimal flavor. but its better than Natty, Milwaukees level. I prefer highlife for budget beer. But its better than wasting money on Bud or Coors.

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.
