Sleeman Light has a thick, creamy, white head, a clear, deep gold appearance, bubble streams, and fairly heavy lacing left behind. Aroma is of sweet malts, and the flavor is of a bit of notebook paper, some sweet white bread, and a dash of yeast. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Sleeman Light finishes crisp and refreshing.

Sleeman have done a nice production beer. the nice yellow of this beer is attractive and this commercial beer will be arround for a long time.

The 4% ABV is just perfect and is easy to drink often in summer when the weather is hot.

This beer is not bitter and easy to drink

Initial pull is fairly nice, after taste lacks appeal, however. Not a bad light beer, overall.

Sleeman light: 4 ABV.
The look of it really light, you have that golden yellow color.
The smell is the same as the Sleeman Original, nothing different .
The carbonation is really light on the glass but on the taste it is more powerful.
Now the taste is the same as the Sleeman Original. Since it have only 4 ABV, the taste was more on the watery side but on the after taste you find the same as the Sleeman Original. It's nice and refreshing but don t expect to be drunk on that beer. The alcohol is not really noticeable.
So overall would I recommend it ? Yes and No.
Yes because it is a little bit much better than the Coors Light or a Bud Light.
No because if you wanna drink a Sleeman, go get the Sleeman Original or even a Honey Brown. But I give the same mark as the Sleeman Original because the only difference is the light version is more on the watery side.

Pours a clear, gold color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight hops, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of corn/rice. Fits the style of a Light Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of corn/rice, pale malt, slight sweet malt, and slight hops. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma, and decent body.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Poured from a 341ml. bottle.

Appearance: An eggshell white head with a bright, clear, very pale yellow body.

Smell: Aroma of cereal and corn. Not too bad.

Taste: Like diluted beer mixed with stale cereals and a tinge of sweet fruit.

Mouthfeel: Flaccid, dull, lifeless.

Overall: Pretty awful taste-wise. Not even refreshing.
