Surprisingly good!

Head dissipates quickly. Not much scent save for a slight sweetness. Carbonation bubbles on the small side with a little light lacing. Body was on the thinner side without being watery.

I didn't expect much from a light beer, but found the flavor to be remarkably good and balanced.

I would have to try Amstel/Heineken Light again to properly compare them, but in my mind, if I immediately think of those light beers as a basis for comparison, then it has to be a good sign!

Karftig Light is decent for a light American Adjunct Lager. It pours a yellow clear with white head that is leaving a slight lace. The scent is non-descript. The taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink. Nice biscuit base. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's ok.

Golden-straw in color with a soapy head. The aroma is grainy, with some grass. More aroma and flavor than a typical light beer, but it is still slim and faint. It is, however, clean and thirst quenching.

This tastes like what I imagine Bud Light tasted like before corporate greed took over. Still not going to kick you in the face with flavor, but what is there is pleasant. This is a nice sessionable lager that would be very easy to throw a few back of.
