A - Poured out a pale, golden yellow color with a one-finger, bubbly head of foam. It left little to no lacing.

S - It smelled of grains with some floral notes.

T - It had a sweet grain flavor with a touch of caramel and a slight spicy bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied lager with a dry finish.

O - This is an okay light lager. Better than most that are out there.

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.

Pours a clear, straw color. 6/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus hops, pale malt, slight sweet malt, a hint of wheat. Fits the style of a Light Lager. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of wheat, and a hint of hops. Overall, as far as a Light Lager, this is a pretty good beer. Good appearance, feel, blend, and body.

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.

Kraftig Light has a thick, slightly off-white head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance. There is no lacing associated with this beer. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up sweetness, light barley malt, and metal. Taste is of very mildly-roasted malt, sweetness, some aluminum, and bread. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Kraftig Light finishes crisp, fairly refreshing, drinkable, and mostly dry. Overall, this is at best and average light beer. There are no foul aspects, however.

Transparent straw color. Very weak head that fades to nothing. Soda bubbles form on the side of the glass.

Ultra clean smell of rice and a hint of corn.

Mild wheat grain flavor mixed with rice and corn husk. No skunkiness. Hint of leafy hop is barely detectable.

Light feel and high carbonation. Just enough texture to say it has a body. Crisp finish.

Slightly above average for the style. Smooth and easy to drink. Lacking in flavor, as expected. Standard AB flavor profile.

Pours out straw yellow with decent bubbles. Looks like any AB brew.
Smell is very light yeast and alcohol. Not a lot here.
Taste isn't that bad. You could def. drink this instead of Bud Lite.
Mouthfeel is very clean and that isn't really a good thing.
Overall not a bad beer, just not a good beer.

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.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: Yes

A - Pours a very light straw color with a nice 2 finger fluffy white head. Very nice carbonation as well

S - Not much on aroma. Smells like corn

T - Honestly a pretty decent light lager. It does have a little flavor. Seems slightly grassy.

M - Quite thin as expected.

O - A good alternative to Bud Light. It does have slightly more flavor. Nothing special though
