look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear, pale yellow color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and poor lacing. Smells of adjunct, pale malt, and yeast. Fits the style of a Light Lager. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp with a high carbonation level. Tastes of adjunct, pale malt, yeast, and very slight hop. Overall, not a real good light lager - I wouldn't recommend.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours clean and clear. Lacing is a bit light and the head isn't anything to dance about. One of the better tasting light beers I've had, which isn't saying all that much. Surprisingly drinkable. Only a slightly watered-down taste, less than many lights. Fairly decent light offering.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a clear, light pale blonde with lots of carbonation and a fast dissolving white head. No lacing after the dissolve. Aroma is multi-grain malt, grassy hops, and a slight lemon zest. Flavor is very light bodied, some corn malt and a slight metalic at the back of the tongue. Finish is watery, clean, crisp and no aftertaste. Not bad to a low-calorie, low-carb, light beer.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

a: normal light yellow appearance accompanied by a white head that is about a quarter inch high. head disapears fast leaving little lacing carbonation is very active
s: sweet malt aromas and hints of hop presence
t: watery, kind of sweet kind of bitter dry finish
m: sharp carbonatio nis sharp, a little too sharp

overall for a light lager this isnt too bad but i am not a big fan of this style

Head lasted quite a while but it was a straight pour down the middle. Minimal lacing effect as beer was consumed.

Not a lot of bouquet or aroma but very typical of mass marketed beers in this category.

Again, do not forget this is a 'light' beer.

Not a lot of aftertaste which would bring you back and back again. More along the lines of a thirst quencher without the calories if that is what you are into.

Probably could have stepped it up half a point but it is stretching to rank as an average beer in the entire beer world. Not bad for a light though. Too bad about the limited availability.
