This is a very mild mexican light beer. Looks pale and clear, with ver little white foam head. Smells like grain and adjuncts. Taste is hard to find, very watery would´n buy it again.

2.49/5  rDev +26.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz can (3.1% ABV) BB date stamped May 2015. Purchased and consumed in Cozumel, Mexico.

Over-sized frothy white head topped the clear golden body.

Aroma: light but about average for style. European hops with baked bread.

Flavor: very light with a near even hop/malt balance but favoring the hops. As expected for style and origin excepting no obvious corn or off-flavors.

O: OK as 3% light beers go.

Can of 355 ml bought in Mexico. I haven't travelled a lot, and certainly Mexico is my first trip outside Europe but I haven't ever seen that many light beers in a market. I can only guess is becuase of the many american tourists.
This one is not any different to other light beers out there. Pale yellow colour, slight head, taste almost non existent and a watery mouthfeel.
Very easily forgetable, even if I was going to get another light beer, that would be my last choice in the specific market, not because it's bad, it is not that bad,but because I would have forgotten its existence.

Is better than the regular Kloster; typical, brilliant yellow color; has a dispersed foam; the first thing that you perceive is the smell of aluminum; has little body; the flavor is deficient, persistent the essence to corn and the end is acid; is not good with the food; does not have good quantity of alcohol; is not refreshing; the only good thing is the price.

There is not much to say about Kloster Light.

Pours a very clear yellow, no head, no lacing; Smells like corn; Taste is thin and watery: Mouthfeel average for a light lager; Drinkability is decent but nothing special.

Cheap beer but I will avoid this one.

Within the rank of the cheap beers in my country it is good, but nothing has to do with the presentation that Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc vendia for 20 years, has not been leaving much undertow its appearance is clear, smell acceptable, taste awful, drinkability good.

NOthing but a cheap beer. This brewery created it for competition in the market, since some foreign beers where arriving at lower costs. It is a lager version of the Kloster and Kloster Dark found in tap. BUt once again, my reccomendation for a non drunk party.

Well, well, well...
This is the first beer that I add, and not proud of it.

This brand, Kloster, used to be the keg flagship for Cervecería Cuauhtémoc, way before they merged Cervecería Moctezuma.

It wasn't a light beer then, actually the style wasn't created yet! Gosh, yes, I'm that old!

I discovered this adjunct some 6 months ago in supermarkets. Dirt cheap, by the way. I find amusing that it isn't available in the convenience store chain that they own. So I asume that Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma is planning a marketing blitzkrieg.

Anyhow:

It pours a straw yellow brew, little to no head and absolutely no lacing.

Smells of grains is all you get from it.

Taste is typically of a light lager: Lots of adjuncts and nearly no real barley malts.

Mouthfeel is crisp, with no hops involved, and dry. It might be a good drink under very hot and outdoor situations, such as México's Northeast barbecues.

I will not drink what is left from the six-pack that I bought for the purpose of this review. No matter what.

¡Salud!
