Had this on 2017-01-05 in Columbia, PA from a 12oz can.

A - Clear yellow-gold with a 1.5 finger white head and mild lace.

S - Mild barley and corn. Very light floral.

T - Insipid but not unpleasant. Nowhere near as much corn flavor due to the use of barley. Grainy of course with just a hint of lemon, grass and mild bitterness.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. Watery.

O - Better than other low cost light lagers. It's a bit more expensive and worth it. Sells for about $21 per 24 can case in PA.

Let's get this out of the way; it's a LIGHT BEER! And it is a perfect light beer. It is a no-nonsense, no-frills beer. Perfect for a hot summer afternoon when you just want a quick beer to quench your thirst. It is not heavy, or hoppy or infused with pumpkin, or chocolate, or jalapenos. It is a no-nonsense, no-frills beer. This light beer still tastes like a real beer. The alcohol content is extremely low; for me, this is a big plus. I can drink more than a few in a night and not get sloppy drunk and I feel absolutely fine the next morning. #1 in the light beer category

Straub American Light brewed by Straub Brewery,with an ABV of 3.20% First off I like the name of this brew "Straub American Light". Now for the review , the brew pours out a nice golden amber color. There is also a nice bright white head to this brew. The smell of this light lager is rich with malts and grains. You also pick up a hit of hops in the smell of this brew. Now for the taste, it is light grains and malts. Not a bad tasting brew. There is not much to the taste of this brew. The mouth feel of Straub American Light is , light , smooth, and refreshing. There is nothing overpowering about this brew. It is a bit on the light side, but that is to be expected with a brew of 3.20% ABV. Straub Brewery, did a nice job with this one. I would buy this brew again. Overall I'm giving Strain American Light a 4 out 5.

Great light beer for the style. Very low ABV which makes this a great lunch beer.

A - Pretty much the same as the regular but almost water color yellow like pee. Had fizzes out to nothing quickly too.
S - Again pretty close to the original with corn adjacent, some hops faint if any and bready malts.
T - Well it drinks rather well for a light beer hops hidden, kind of watery but decent beer body. Corn isn't skunky.
M - Way to easy to pound I had like 12 in a night and it didn't even get me drunk. What is the allure of light beer?

Overall the price is right and it taste 50% better than BMC light beers but with such a low ABV I will never split a case again. OK beer I guess...
