12 ounce can (tall but thin like a Red Bull can) - $1.29 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow body with a frothy, tall, but quickly collapsing white head.
Smell: Humble, demure nose smelling only mildly of barley and rice and floral hops. Thanks so much for the keeping out the skunk wafts, aluminum can, you don't know how much I appreciate it.
Taste: Light, lightly sweet cereal grains and rice is easily balanced out by an equally light touch of hops and bitterness. Finishes dry, clean, and quaintly crisp.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Provided you have your lil' heart set on purchasing Heineken Light, to ensure you circumvent the Euro-skunk, buying this in a can is really the only way to go.
Serving type: can

Sampled tonight on 3/30/14 while doing some grillin' and chillin' on the upper patio deck. Don't recall ever drinking one of these, though had the regular Heineken many times over the years.
Pours pale yellow in color with a 1-finger frizzy white head that didn't last long. Some light spotty lacing was seen with each sip, but not much. Lots of bubbles rising from the bottom and sides of the glass due to the above average carbonation. The aroma is close to their regular Heineken, which is slightly 'skunky' as is like most brews in green bottles. (Right Mario Esposito?) , which is of grains with a hint of sweet corn. Not much else. The taste like just like a watered-down Heineken but actually not as heavily-bodied as a regular Heiny.
