To quote Homer Simpson: "Hello taste? Taste? Where are you?" Regular Stroh's is a pretty good economy macro in my book, but its light counterpart is very weak. I don't expect too much out of light beers, but I was somewhat expecting this to at least taste like a watered down version of regular Stroh's, but it fails at that.

Stroh's Light pours a pale straw color with noticibly active carbonation. It formed a decent foamy white head that disappeared very quickly. The smell is sugary sweet, with some mixed grains and husks (typical light beer smell). The mouthfeel is very thin, fizzy, and seltzer-like. The taste had some mild grainy sweetness at first, but is extremely bland. Make that Coors Light bland. What makes this fouler than Coors Light is that this stuff has the added distinction of having a wet paper like taste to it that heavily reduces the drinkability. There is almost no aftertaste, although some cooked veggie taste arises. Absolutely no alcoholic warmth to this one, as well.

If you want a Stroh's, stick with the full flavored version and avoid this stuff. This is a light beer that is actually quite difficult to chug down because of the paper taste. (BTW, this tastes a little better directly out of the can, for reasons I can't explain).

Another bad purchase by mistake. Tastes unbelievable watered down. It still gives you diheara, but without the calories. I think the water used in the brewing comes from a bad stream in Mexico.

my cousins came to town from indiana and brought this filth, here we go!!!

it looks about as close to water as any beer i've ever seen, hardly has any color to it and a head that looks like dawn dish soap, just barely anything

smell is pretty bad, just an overload of corn and water, no presence of hops and or malt, what did they make this out of?

taste is awful. or rather the lack thereof, just a watery, mess of corn just avoid, good lord

the only possible positive i can see, is was near broke, and needed to a beer on a super hot day, i could drink these, because i'd be avoid dying of thirst.

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.

Unlike its big brother, regular Stroh's, which is a good American macor, I found Stroh's Light to be a rather bitter tasting, watery beer. It doesn't have the caramel taste present in its big brother. I'll stick with the regular Stroh's as my chepie.
