1.85/5 rDev -32.7%
Poured from a 341ml. bottle.
Appearance: An eggshell white head with a bright, clear, very pale yellow body.
Smell: Aroma of cereal and corn. Not too bad.
Taste: Like diluted beer mixed with stale cereals and a tinge of sweet fruit.
Mouthfeel: Flaccid, dull, lifeless.
Overall: Pretty awful taste-wise. Not even refreshing.

Drank from a bottle into a pint glass.
A- I drank this because it was gifted to me and a tick is a tick. Light straw yellow with a fizzy minimal white cap that left before i got to know it. no lace.
S- Sleeman Premium light smells like Pepé Le Pew, very skunky just like the regular version. Maybe some malts in here and very faded hops. All I really get is the skunked smell.
T- Well, the taste is slightly skunked as well but not as much as the regular version, hence, this being the light version. Grains and just a notion of hop presence. Some bready malts as well.
M- Thin and light but alot of active carbonation is heard and felt. Goes down very easy and would be better without pepe.
D- Not really, I finished my bottle because I was parched and needed some liquid but I would not willingly buy this for myself, or bring it to a party. I want to try this in Canada to see if there is a difference.

Pours a light bronze, not the pale yellow color I expected. The head quickly recedes but leaves a respectable trail of lace webs behind. Wet straw and some distant grass clippings and vegetal notes make up the nose. The flavor on the sweet side, with a watery, flaccid malt profile and no hops to speak of. The mouthfeel is about as watery as you'd expect, very light and languidly carbonated. The finish ends before it really even starts.
This beer is very mediocre. Its not unpleasant to drink but it doesnt hold a candle to the better light beers like Sam Adams and Walkerville, where there is at least some hop and malt interplay.

A: Kept it in the can. Was outside at a get together.
S: Smelt like your typical light lager. Wet grain with slight hop on the end.
T: This beer surprised me a lot. It tasted pretty good for a light lager. It was still watery, but in a good way. Some malt and hops with a drop of spice on the end. Bit of sweetness too. The flavor is so light and yet complex compared to must other light beers.
M: Very refreshing. Good carbonation. Light crisp finish with no aftertaste.
O: I had this on vacation in Canada. I doubt they have this back home in Florida, but if they did I might pick it up. Nice light beer.

This beer poured a fizzy yellow with a small head. The smell is mostly corn adjunct with a tiny bit of grassy hops. The taste is very close to the smell, nothing too exciting but not horrible for a light beer. The mouthfeel has the right carbonation to be incredibly drinkable. Not a bad beer if you have to drink something light, and it comes in fancy bottle with a maple leaf and a beaver on it.

Well this beer is definetly the best light american lager. It's more golden than most of them and smells great but it's still below average. The taste is for sur above average. It has even more taste than other macro lagers. The mouthfeel is ok but there's nothing amazing about it. Overall it's tastier than most light lagers.

Clear straw with a brittle white head. Nose is sweet with some grass, apple and and honey tones. Light, watery flavour and mouthfeel. A bit of husky grain, apple and very mild bitterness in the finish dissipates quickly. Easy drinking of course - there's not much to this, but certainly not the least flavourful light beer around. Passable.
