My wife first had this in Logan Airport when the lady in the mini-pub realized the only thing flowing from the taps was normal Boston Lager and that cherry thing. The Light was better than the cherry, and my wife liked that it was a decent beer given its light name.

Since then we've had it around the house a number of times, and not one to turn down beer, I've had a couple. As an individual beer, its nothing too special, but in the class of light lagers, its pretty good. Its got some hop and malt aroma, some hop and malt flavor, and you feel more like you've been drinking beer than drinking water, which is more than I can say for most American Light Lagers.

There's not really any advantage to pouring it from the bottle to a glass, but I secretly enjoy drinking from the bottle now and then. Better to do it with a beer that won't blossom when poured into the appropriate glass.
