From the Joseph Huber Brewing Co. comes...Huber Light!? I guess if the world wants less carbs, you better make a low carb beer.

I was expecting exactly what I got. Nice smooth finish, slighly hoppy, but nothing to distract the less experienced beer drinker. In comparison with other beers in its category, it would be on the same level as a Miller Lite or Bud Light (better than Bud IMO).

A cheaper alternative to the larger macro brews. Go for it!

Pours out a nice clear straw color with lots of white suds leaving lots of nice lacing around the pilsner glass.
No smell that jumps out at you.
Taste is very watery. Needs something but I can't tell what that something is.
Mouthfeel is dirty water with little to no carbonation .
Not a good beer here.

Appearance is quite bland, as expected but almost no color. Decent carbonation.
Smell is almost none existant. Very clean smelling though, a bit of sweet malt and smidge of dry hops.
Taste comes through a bit more, actually somewhat refreshing.
Mouthfeel is very weak as expected.
You know for a light beer, this definately is NOT the worst one out there. I could have a couple of these.

OK, so my wife’s side of the family is coming over for the Christmas Eve holiday. They are lite beer drinkers and think Tequiza is a rare and exotic beer. I have tried to convert them via weisses, pumpkins, APA’s etc. all to no avail. So while at the liquor store, I spot the Huber Light. I was dammed if I was going to buy any BMC product, so I thought why not spring this on them.

It pours a light bright gold with an massive initial head. Just a skimming after a few minutes.

The beer has a very clean aroma. I get hints of malts, grains and a bit of flowery pepper smell.

The taste is just like the smell. Clean, light non-offensive. Very low hoping (just 7 IBUs) but there is a trace of bitterness. Very dry finish. No off flavors. Definitely a light beer, but it has a smidgen of taste. It beats the pants off the big boys.

The mouthfeel is a solid three. Slightly thin, but with excellent carbonation. Extremely easy to drink if your into light beers or if you need something to washdown some non spicey food. Bottom line, at least for the day I got them away from the big three and I think they liked this more than a bit.
