I was interested in trying this after hearing about it from a friend who works for Heineken's marketing dept because regular Heineken has always been present in my area of Long Island. I had read about the test marketing sites doing very well, which eventually led to a full product rollout.
It was very fresh in the pouring stage and the first smell told me this would be good with marinated (Cajun style) catfish, just like regular Heineken. The frothy head led to a first taste that started out like any other European lager and then it cut short. Strange. It was like cutting the bass off of a graphic equalizer and then enhancing the remaining sound with reverb.
Well, the Heineken Light finished well with the baked catfish after three bottles of them. I know it will be well received this summer by the thirsty masses in the Hamptons, the Cape, and Mystic as the marketing effort gets going.

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.
