In short, this beer doesn't add anything to the light macro lager field. It had the same slightly metallic, chemical taste of Coors Light--it tastes more like Coors Light than like Bud Light or Miller Lite, which provides a frame of reference. It doesn't taste much like Heineken. I give 'em credit for spelling out "light" rather than using "lite." So drinking this beer promotes literacy, but that's about it.

12 oz. bottle with some sort of bottling code on the bottle. Aquire a single bottle of this stuff from my neighbors. Expectations aren't great, but for some reason I seem to enjoy this stuff.
Poured into a miniature Victorian carriage adorned pint glass.
A - It pours a pale, mostly clear straw yellow. About a finger of quickly dissipating white foam.
S - The smell is of sweetened corn / grains & huskiness.
T - Taste is the same. Sweetened grains / corn and huskiness. Nothing to brag about but it goes down quick and easy.
M - The feel is crisp, light, and clean. Easy drinking.
Overall, what it lacks in flavor it makes up for in drinkability. Not harsh, astringent, or offensive. And with a low 3.30% abv, this one makes a solid choice in the realm of shitty light lagers.
Heineken Light ---3/5.

12 oz can.
Pour is light amber; excellent clarity; Good head and decent lacing; coarse carbonation.
Aroma: light sweet malts and spicy hops in good balance.
Flavor: very mild, with only a faint hop bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.
Feel: very light bodied but about as expected given the style and carbonation level.
O: light ... very light, but not otherwise flawed and not bad with a meal. Note, bottled Heineken in the US is oftem spoiled so can are recommended.
