look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5
Appearance- Amber in color with a quickly dissipating fizzy white head. Claims to be a light beer but I'm not sure I buy it from the appearance.
Smell- I'm mostly picking up malts, the aroma is faint but present. What I can smell isn't bad.
Taste- This is pretty full flavored as far as light beers come. Very malty well balanced by hops. Although after looking at the caloric content I'm not sure this is really a light beer but who knows?
Mouthfeel- goes down smooth and has a fairly light body, although it's on the heavy side for the light beer category.
Drinkability- I'm pretty conflicted on this one. On one hand it went down fast and was pleasant to drink. On the other hand the only reason I can see to drink light beers is to save on the calories and this doesn't do it. For the same number of calories,, I'll take a more full flavored beer.
