Bought a 6-pack from Long's $7.49
Light clear golden color
High carbonation
Light mouthfeel
Light malt taste, slight tart taste, not much more than water
Overall slightly better than drinking plain water on a hot day. Would not buy again.

Had at Butchies 50th birthday bash with Donnie Iris. Weren't many choices of beer, so had to slum. This is one step from water. Only reason to drink this is because it was cold.

I had one left in the fridge by my father in law. I was going to pour it out but decided to give it a try anyhow.

Pours a hydrated man's pee color (I know, I'm being a jerk). It is very pale and very clear.

The aroma is of harsh chemical to me, though there is some kind of sweet, bready aroma trying to push through.

Taste is sweet up front, quickly dissipating to a bland chemical flavor. There is nothing in this profile that is trying to rescue it.

Feel is thin to watery, crisp and a little seltzery.

Not impressed. I suspect this beer is all marketing (you know, summer beaches, chilling with bikini-clad babes, palm trees) The reality is It's going down the drain along with the rest of sewerage (I know, I 'm being a jerk)

Had 2 bottles at a friends house for game 5 of Stanley Cup, Pens vs Preds. I have not had a light beer in years possibly decades. I found the beer fresh with flavor. Overall, not to shabby. This is not a beer I would go out of my way to drink but if given a bottle, I would not turn it down and even enjoy the beer.

Mmm, seltzer with a lime. Don't bother. Stick with the original or drink something else.

Pours a clear gold with a white head. Smells almost of nothing. Maybe a white bread. Taste follows the nose but insanely watery. The taste isn't bad, it's just almost not there. Watery mouthfeel with medium low carbonation. Overall the beer isn't bad, it just doesn't taste like much. It's like drinking water.

One of those beers I have had often enough, but until the three I had tonight, didn't realize I hadn't reviewed. I am not adverse to Corona or this Light version. I am going to add a lime wedge to it just about every time, and that was the case tonight. Light golden color, clear, with a simmer of bubbles as the lime is forced into the neck of the bottle. No real aromas other than the spritz of lime zest. Flavors are mild, faded grains and a bit of citrus, very mild bitterness and sweetness. For me, easy to drink and inoffensive. Way better than Bud and many American contemporaries.
