This is a pretty decent beer even looking beyond its status as a light. A light beer that tastes like beer? Well, this is the first I've had, though I'd like to try some light micros to compare. To say this is by far the thickest, maltiest light beer I've ever seen or tasted isn't necessarily saying much since my experience with lights has only been the domestic swill some friends of mine like. But this one has a decent malt and hops taste and smell, the subtle toasty, nutty accents one wouldn't expect to find in a light, and a decent mouth feel. As lights go, I'll stick with this one until someone points me to something better.
