2.4/5 rDev +13.7%
Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some corn. Taste is virtually non-existent. Maybe some mild notes of beer, extremely week. Feels light in the mouth and has poor drinkability. Overall I was unimpressed with this beer.

DEC09 2013 printed on the can, possibly a "born on" since Miller brews this.
Very pale dull canary yellow color, bright clarity and rapid carbonation. Clumpy soapy foam with some dish soap lacing. Looks boring.
Smells like a musty old dishrag, nasty.
Tastes better than that thankfully, some apple from the yeast, vague crackery malt. Dry aftertaste, thin and watery, bland. A real dumbed down lager, no structure or nuance at all, cheap buzz is all it is, at least it's not pretending.
As an aside, i've only spotted a couple old Strohs signs around town, but they're pretty cool actually, if you are into old breweriana.

Stroh’s Light has a thick, stark-white head and a clear, slightly bubbly, golden appearance with even a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, with light, sweet grain. The flavor is similar- very standard light beer taste. Bitterness is practically nil. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Stroh’s Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and highly drinkable. For a light beer it’s excellent. Overall pretty good.

12 fl oz. can, best by date on the bottom reads April 01, 2013, so I'm a few days late here, but that's nothing to cry over. Just learned from BeerAdvocate that this is a Pabst product, with a dismal 3.00% abv, not listed on the can anywhere, which is probably for the better. Landed the random bundle 15 pack on sale for $4.99 at the local beer store.
Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours a clear, see-through, faint yellow colored glass of water with about two fingers of fizzing white head that settles down to a layer of foam covering the top. One of the palest sickest yellow colored beers that I've ever beheld.
S - Smell consists of cheap dusty malted barley, carbonation, and corn adjuncts.
T - Thin & light-bodied. Some corn kernel, wet cardboard, and water.
M - Feel is clean, light, smooth. Virtually nothing here.
Overall, you already know what you're getting yourself into with this one before you even pop the top. This is quite possibly the "lightest" or, the lowest abv lager that I have tried yet. On the path to becoming a non-beer, or beer flavored water. With that said, it isn't nearly as foul or disgusting as heavier malt liquors like Steel Reserve 211 High Gravity. A fairly inoffensive, light lager that achieves what it is trying to do. I've got 14 more cans of this swill to mull it over also.
Pabst Stroh's Light ---2/5.

GOOD: In the flavor there is not a lot to say, simply is not very bad, with a marked consistency of corn and fizzy; with the food is acceptable.
BAD: The color is a ugly yellow; the smell is evil, refreshing on one hand, but with old essences and carbonation; have little body with a current and common foam.

Stroh's Light is the ultimate boating beer. i understand it may not be the best of all beers but for a 13.99 30 pack on a super hot day on the beach/ boat i dont think you can find a better beer. cans are great for the environment and crush small for stowing away. cans float when unopened so they are easily thrown out to a swimming friend. ever want to drink a beer while tubing? well this is the beer for the job. plus the watered down taste keeps you hydrated. and stroh's light compliments on the water vodka sours, well!! any way unless you are on the boat with friends, stick with a better reviewed beer because stroh's just doesn't cut around the house drinking, unless you are on a bender and want to drink twenty beers for some reason.

a: pale golden color with about an inch of white head that dissapears much faster than the not light version, little lacing
s: watery corn grains, some hop presence not very strong
t: corn grains, kinda sweet little hop presence
m: light to medium bodied fairly highly carbonated not overly though
overall i recommend sticking with the not light version it is much better than the light

Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a very pale yellow color and as close to clear as I’ve ever seen in a beer, with a large white head that fades very quickly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains adjuncts, light malts and a very faint touch of hops.
T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of adjuncts. Then some light malt sweetness comes in with a very mild hops presence in the background. The after-taste is lightly bready and slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and a little smooth, light body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.
O: Not very flavorful, goes down very easily and not filling at all since there is not much to the beer, very mild kick, it’s exactly what you would expect of the style, this is a poundable beer because it’s so light but it would not be the first light beer I would choose.

Poured with a two finger head which dissipated within 30 seconds to a very thin pale white ring. Just a little blotched lacing around the side of the glass when tipped. Color is light yellow a 3 on the SRM chart. Not a whole lot of flavor, so not good, but nothing displeasing. Maybe a good beer to slam back after an afternoon of yard work. I can't complain too much as the price is good n cheep. I would not recommend it to any serious beer drinkers, but after a few of the good stuff, this would pass for beer.

Pours a light straw color, quickly fading white head and lots of bubbles.
Smell is faint but of grain, corn and some hops.
Taste is grainy in the middle and finishes with a bit of hops. Nice to actually have hops in there, finishes slightly dry. Mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated, refreshing.
An okay beer, worse than a regular Stroh's but better than the average macro but not better than anything else.

This just doesn't match up to the regular offering from Stroh's. Nice billowy head but the color is very light. Everything here seems to be a muted version of the regular, which has somewhat muted characteristics itself. Watery and a bit bland. Slight grainy notes and not sweet or dry. Drinkability is decent but this beer makes me belch a lot. More than any other macro. Odd. Stick to the regular.
