Can you make a worse beer, I doubt it. Take the worst of the macros, water it down and make it more unappealing, that's IC Light.

I.C. Light brewed by Pittsburgh Brewing Co. This brew has an ABV of 4.15% The brew pours out a nice amber color with a small white head. I.C. Light is a filtered brew you can see right though it. This brew looks like most American light brews. The smell has some grains and malts. You do pick up on some corn in this brew. There is nothing bad about this brew so far now for the taste. The taste at first is bitter but it goes down smooth. But there is something in there at first. This brew ok, it is not bad but it is not good. I would put this light brew right in the middle. The mouthfeel is ok with a clean finish. But the first taste is bitter sweet. Overall I'm giving this brew a 3 out 5. Not the best, but not the worst I've had.

DATE REVIEWED: August 2, 2014... GLASSWARE: ballpark see-through plastic... OCCASION: perfect night for a ballgame and some beers with brother Jer in State College...APPEARANCE: thick, white creamy head; yellow body with some cascading bubbles...meh... AROMA: vague hints of water hose, hay and malt liquor ping....with a hint of beer pong ball... PALATE: light bodied, with a retreating aftertaste--has peanut-rinsing potential... TASTE: middling malts mingle with water to produce...mostly water, with a warming fuzz not appropriate to its ABV...not much else can be deduced... OVERALL: I went cheaper at the Spikes game and got four more ounces for a dollar less than the Robin Hood IPA...and not surprisingly, I regretted the change.. this beer needs to be chased with an activity that involves strong-tasting fare; otherwise, I wouldn't drink this unless visiting Pittsburgh where the locals embrace its quirks and flaws....

Poured from can to snifter

A- pours a clear pale yellow color with a small foamy white head that retains nicely, leaving some lacing behind.

S- grainy adjunct corn aroma with just a trace of floral hop, toasted cracker

T- grains with some light floral hop, adjunct sweetness dry finish

M- light body with low carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a slick & clean finish

O- this isn't terrible, I actually prefer it over BMC light beers. Actually has a bit of flavor, but not much
