From notes 8-20-08

Eye: This beer is disgustingly clear. It is so clear that it looks more like water than like beer. The color, I wouldn't even call it yellow/straw, its more like tainted water. Head is white and has decent retention, ½ a finger I'd say. Looks like some nice lacing too.

Nose: Sweet notes followed by lots of rice, thats only the first time I get my nose in the glass. After that there is nothing, its almost as if that was all the aroma it had and it went right into my nose. Clean smelling water. It really has no aroma at all.

Tongue: There really isn't any flavor here. Rice is obvious, and what other flavor is here is terrible. I'm sad to have to call this beer. Slight sweetish notes chasing the aftertaste and quickly vanishing leaving an acrid and very dry aftertaste in the mouth. Agghh I hate this beer, it is so bad!

Mouthfeel and Drinkability: Extremely light in the mouth, the consistency of carbonated water. Finish is dry. Easy to quaff, and if you're going to drink this you'd better be quaffing it. There's no other reason to drink this shit beer. If you're not drinking this to get wasted (because I'm sure it'll only take about 10-12 of these bad boys) I have no idea what is going on with that fucked up brain of yours. If someone tells me that this is their favorite beer, and that it tastes so good, I'm going to laugh in their face. Really, really glad I didn't pay for this. This beer isn't worth the minuscule amount of iron in my shit.

Pours a white, five finger-head that vanishes almost instantly leaving no lace. Clear, very pale amber color. No noticeable carbonation and very light bodied. Nose may be a faint sweet hay. Starts with no hops or malts finish is almost like water. Even a bad lawn mower beer. The Canadians can brew a decent light - Keith's but this isn't it. $1.45 for a 340ml from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Pale yellow color with a huge white head that quickly dissipates. The nose is grainy with some bitterness. The flavor has a little corn added the the grains. Light overcarbonated body stings my tounge. I suppose a Canadian some where may enjoy this brew.

The Moment: Catching up on NBC's Thursday programming tonight...
Glassware: Cleveland Browns pilsner...
Appearance: A more orange version of the pale Golden; similar effervescence...
Aroma: A pungeant doughy malty sweetness....
Palate: A bit mellow, and a much more bubbly, gassy experience...
Taste: Syrupy sweet, smooth malt finish with little to be done on the way down the throat; clean water, yes--mostly just water...
Overall: Not much of a difference between the Golden and the Light, save the gas and the simplicity of its taste profile; drinkable in vast quantities, but preferably in pong/asshole/regatta/flipcup engagements...
