This is one of the better light beer I have had, it leaves nice lacing in the glass, It is a little too carbonated for my taste. This is worth a try as to me it is better than Miller light

Clear light golden color with a quickly dissipating soapy white head. Lots of carbonation clinging to the glass with a bunch of streaming bubbles.

Smell is sweet bread maybe some biscuits as well. Smell was a bit soapy smelling in an odd way.

Taste is very watery with a beer flavor in the background. Just not a large flavor profile on this one.

Mouth feel is watery and refreshing with a crisp finish.

This is not a bad beer when served cold in the can (seems to be the consensus for these light beers). And as long as someone is not looking for a big complex beer, maybe just a cool drink on a hot day, this would work. I have found a lot of these light beers fit that profile of someone just wanting a cold drink that has some beer taste. With low alcohol levels these are also very sessionable and sit a bit better in a persons gut on a hot day. Strange that Miller makes Lite and this beer has much more flavor then High Life Light. I really find that Lite is overall the better of these light beers. Again if you live in a hot ass place like Las Vegas these can work to a certain extent.

It is similar in taste, look & aroma to Bud Light & Coors Light. If you likes those beers, then you will like this one and save money in the process. The price for 30 of these is about the same as for 24 of Bud Light or Coors Light.

Harsh looking aal style beer, doesn't make a head or provide any lacing to be up on, just that returned yellow color, gold. Aroma was harsh, industrial metallic and bittering long boil hops.

Taste, more alcohol and metal. Lots of carbonation, corn, industrial again. Smells good when they make it, but everything goes downhill from there. Should be lighter than this, the fizziness is to the extreme. Lots of water. Mouthfeel is unpleasant like alka seltzer.

The light version of High Life. This beer was like water in almost every aspect. On the tongue it felt as if you were drinking a club soda, something I guess would be okay if you're into that. Aroma was almost nonexistent. Good for when you're doing yardwork and other home improvement projects. Taste was subdued and almost not there. Probably wouldn't have this again. I've only seen this in 32 Oz. cans, never bottles.
