This is a very low quality beer. Of course it is a light lager and that's what we get but it is below average. Still it is not enough even tough it is a light lager. There is no smell almost and no taste. It is a little to watery too. it is alcoholic water.

Nobody seems to mention that the way American "light" beers are brewed is that they remove a LOT of the alcohol in order to reduce the caloric content. This is the whole American "point" for a "light" beer. it's American "diet beer" -- And just like diet soda, it has most of the life drained out of it.

"Diet beer" -- with reduced alcohol. Women in pubs realize they can drink this stuff and not end up riding home unconscious with a total stranger. *LMAO*
