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.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.
The Spelunky spree continues, along with the seemingly endless stream of deaths. Figures. This stuff pours a clear pale sallow topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises light corn, grassy wheat, and light hard water. The taste brings in more of the same, with a grassy, corny sweetness pervading the proceedings. The body is pretty light, with a moderate carbonation and a decidedly watery feel. Overall, a pretty sad little beer, one that seems to lean closer to water than beer, but one, considering the circumstances, that really isn't quite as bad as it theoretically could have been.

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.

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.

Out of a can this beer was a pale golden color with lots of rising carbonation and a short-lived, eggshell white head. The retention and lacing were little to speak of. The aroma was of pale malt, corn and rice and a hint of aluminum. The flavors were quite similar with the adjunct grains being dominant and the aluminum wrapping it up. Not very pleasant and hardly anything to write about. The body was light, the carbonation medium/high and the mouthfeel frothy. Meh.

2.1/5 rDev -0.5%
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.
