2.4/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz green bottle with plastic labels and a bottle code which may or may not have anything to do with freshness.

A- Pale golden straw with a fizzy looking lace from hasty bubbles rising to the top.

S- Not much in the aroma other than some faint grain and cooked hops.

T&M- A bit more smooth than crisp in the light and dry body. Mild astringent quality middle to end. Quick bite of grain and hop bitterness and then the clean and dry after tastes quickly sets in.

D- A watery beer, this is a beer for people that really don't want to drink beer or think that drinking regular beer will make them fat ... its not all of the fast food and junk food that made them fat right? When will this low-carb beer fad die a quick death?

2.85/5  rDev +22.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

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.

2.65/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

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.

Serving type: can
