It's like a watered-down version of the Carlsberg Pils. Now brewed by Moosehead Breweries Ltd.

A: Clear yellow, some white head, very little retention.

S: The aroma falls between an American macro lager and a German Pils: Metallic minerals, floral and a little catty.

T: Taste is a little flat with hints of cardboard (oxidation?). Modest bitterness, but some decent hop flavour.

M: Light body; moderate carbonation.

D: Not bad, but one of these was more than enough.

For a light beer, this my preference so far. Much better than any other Light beer I've tried. The aroma here is similar to the main brand, so much so that I am unable to tell the difference. Again, like the main brand, it is golden in colour with a mouthfeel that is not offensive to the tongue. However, the flavour has slightly less bite than the parent brew.

Carlsberg Light as brewed in Canada by Labatt's under the supervision of Carlsberg..
A very pretty lager with a deep clear golden hue and a lingering semi thick head. The body is light by Canadian standards.
I find the taste to be almost a perfect compromise but limited in duration.
Nice offering for a "light" from a macro..
