Bud Light Lime Mojito from Anheuser-Busch InBev pours a pale golden yellow color with a large, spongy white head that burns off within a few minutes, leaving a bubbly collar. Lime and mint battle for a stranglehold on the aroma of this flavoured light lager, with a faint sweet malt smell coming through behind them. The soft mint and sharp lime smells actually complement each other nicely.
The combination of lime and mint flavours in Bud Light Lime Mojito is however, for lack of a better word, gross. This beer tastes like someone tossed a couple of pre-chewed sticks of gum or a splash of mouthwash in my glass. It is thin-bodied with ample carbonation and quite syrupy on the tongue. The finish has a subtle tart bite to it, but the lingering mint flavour in the aftertaste reminds me of a menthol cigarette.
This light, flavoured adjunct lager from Molson Coors Canada pours a light pencil yellow colour with a moderate soapy white head that burns off within a couple of minutes, leaving a string of a collar behind without any lacing. Coors Light Iced T actually smells kind of nice. There are aromas of lemongrass, green tea and ginger ale, with light grain and honey accents.
Coors Light Iced T has a very refreshing taste made up of sharp lemon and dry tea flavours. It has more in common with a lemon-flavoured ginger ale than anything resembling beer, though it’s far less sweet than I had expected. The beer has a very thin mouthfeel with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a bright pop on the tongue, with an ever so slight oiliness. The finish is scantily malty, mildly dry and the aftertaste leaves a lingering lemon flavour.
Mill Street Original Organic Lager pours a very clear, bright golden colour with a large, but fleeting head that settles as a moldy-looking film and leaves moderate lace. Freshwater, grains, honey-sweetened roasted malts and a faint fruitiness make up the aroma of this light, American-style pale lager from the Mill Street Brewery in Toronto, Ontario, with the smell of alcohol coming through as it warms.
Mill Street Original Organic Lager has a crisp and mild taste with a well-balanced, but slightly sweet malt flavour. A sort of white wine grape taste provides a dryness and slight sourness and a toasty flavour comes out in the finish. The mouthfeel is on the thin side with a light-medium carbonation. The long-lasting collar provides a smooth creaminess. There is a slight syrupy feeling on the back of the tongue and just a bit of lingering sourness.
