Clear gold color, little to no head. Light graininess in the nose, no hops, pretty much a cookie cutter light lager so far. Taste is actually kind of foul, slight skunkiness mixed in with cereal grain and maybe a little grassy malt. Again, no hops anywhere. Well carbonated, but this is still a subpar beer.

Disappointed to find this in the fridge. My spouse isn't as adventuresome as I am when it comes to beer.

Well, it's pale and carbonated. Taste's like other macro-"lite" beers. No flavor. If you are looking to drink a low-cal beer, maybe there is some social or psychological reason for going with the regional scale brewery instead of the multi-national, because I just don't see a difference in taste.

Like some other Leinie's products, but am not into this one.

Pours a very clear light gold...nose is sweet corn....adjuncty...very watery mouthfeel...even for a light beer...taste has some faint corny sweetness....I expected a slight hint of the Leinies Original somewhat zesty hoppiness but it is nowhere to be found...the taste is OK but the wateryness just overrideds and dilutes the flavor..

Not one of the better light beers made....but drinkable in the right spot...I particularly enjoy it on the tennis court....last time I played the wife I pounded a six pack of water...errr leinie's lights while waxing her 7-5, 6-1 (notice the improved performance after hydrating with Leinies light!!! Fuck gatorade, there'snothing like a little barley flavored water to do the trick)

ABV might be about 3.2 or less....

A good water substitute with a little beer flavor...

Can, brought back from the brewery tour. This is a pretty typical light beer. Pale yellow color, not much head (at least nothing that lasts more than 45 seconds). Not much for smell, grain with a bit of alcohol. Taste is similar, some grain or grass - tastes like light beer. Taste and mouthfeel are both watered down. Hops? no. Hard to be dissapointed, because you get what you would expect from the corresponding light version of a big name pale lager.
