500ml Can

Appearance – Clear light yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is a fair amount of lacing. The head lasted for around 2 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, bread, light hops, malts, corn, skunk

Taste & Mouth - The beer has a high amount of carbonation. I can taste breads/grains mixed with light hops and some cooked corn. There is actually quite a bit of taste going on here for a light beer. It finishes with a grainy slightly bitter/spicy aftertaste.

Overall – It really doesn't taste like a light beer.. and at 4.4% I'm not even really sure it is one. Anyways, the taste has a bit of a harshness to it. If it were just a little bit more balanced it would be a pretty decent brew. (789 characters)

Poured from a half-litre can into a small flare glass.

A: Piss-pale and clear. Light foam, but no head.

S: Nice and sweet. Light malty notes and a hint of something else...maybe citrus?

T: Not bad at first. Beery and grainy and little sourness, with a background of mild, sweet malt.

M: Oddly bitter and not that great. A little sharp, and carbonation is a bit off. Light and not lasting.

D: I wouldn't drink more than one or two. To be fair, I don't love light beer. (472 characters)

500mL can (canned 1/25/2013) into an English pint glass. Pours a pale yellow w/ a fluffy white head that leaves behind some sticky lace. Moderate carbonation.

Aroma is mildly floral, coarsely grainy. Barely smells of anything at all.

Taste is weak and watery. Some bland grainy taste from the malt, a vaguely metallic aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is thin and watery. The gentle bite of carbonation is the only thing that reminds me this is beer.

Overall, an unremarkable watered-down beer. (486 characters)
