I don't usually drink light lagers but the confusing "dark light" thing intrigued me.

Appearance was the best attribute- bronze with fine lacing.

No aroma discernible whatsoever.
The taste disappears with an odd metallic clang.

Finish and mouthfeel are virtually nonexistent.
Is this a light beer designed to make it look like you are drinking a decent beer? I guess that makes it "drinkable" to the AB crowd.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, beer is a clear, amber-copper color with small amounts of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass to the thin head on top. Smell is primarily quite grainy, corn, amber malts only slightly. There is almost no taste to this beer, a slight grainy malt taste and a minute amount of hops. Beer is very light in body as expected and has an average amount of carbonation. This is a drinkable beer, but just because you can do something doesn't necessarily mean you should.
