Having Been born and raised (and currently living) in New Brunswick, I've grown quite accustomed to the taste of Moosehead Light as it would easily be the most popular Light Beer in this province.

A- The typical golden straw color of the average American Macro Lager. Nothing special here but nothing to really complain about either.

S- The scent of Moosehead Light is quite sweet. Malty cereal grains is really all I can draw from the scent. Once again, nothing particularly interesting about this perspective of the beer but then again, who cares about how a light beer smells??

T- Much like the scent, the taste is fairly sweet with notes of cereal grains (similar to Molson Canadian). Not entirely pleasing but it is quite refreshing on a hot day.

M- Medium to high carbonation. Thin and water-like; a trait that pairs well with its refreshing taste.

O- Don't let my close upbringing with this beer dissuade from the fact that this beer is a great one (speaking of Light Macro Lagers, of course). No, it doesn't hold a candle to the great craft beers in the market today but I really do appreciate Moosehead Light for what it is. If you're looking for a relatively cheap and refreshing light beer and you have the opportunity to pick it up, go ahead and do so. If you go in with the likes of bud light/ coors light in your mind, you might even be a little bit impressed ;D

Pale yellow pour, small white head with low retention.
Smell of sweet malts, some biscuit and grassy hops, all kinda faint.
Taste of adjuncty sweet malts, somewhat lighter, some lemon zest, touch of apple and mild generic bitterness.
Light bodied, a bit fizzy, clean.
Not many bad notes, but pretty bland. Serves it's purpose nicely, easy drinkable.

Poured a medium straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light adjunct malt sweetness and a light grassy hop.

The taste consisted of the same adjunct malt with a grassy hop that didn't quite dry out the flavor entirely.

The mouthfeel was full for the style.

Overall a better than average light beer.

With 4% ABV, this is a true canadian style light lager. It is fully fermented and cold aged with a longer aging process that creates a crisp, refreshing beer with a nice clean finish that just rolls off the tongue.

Smooth aftertaste and well balanced flavour.
