Postmortem Brew Review

Small nucleated bubbles. High carbonation.
Light bodied and flavor; slightly tart, dry finish.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Disclaimer time.  I am not a fan of light beers. And I have been skeptical of most brews in this style for quite some time. German and Czech brewers are about the only breweries that make refreshing, tasty well balanced Pilsener Lagers, in my humble opinion. The macro breweries do a yeoman's job of creating mass quantities, but still can't match the German/Czech regional pilseners.

Key West Pilsner Light gives us their version of this style. While it was a beer that hit the spot on the day consumed, it did not measure up to the centuries old brewers of Europe.

If you are looking for a light beer, (93 calories, 2.6g carbohydrates, 1g protein and 0g fat), look no further. Hmmm. Where did the protein come from? And why does the Key West lineup from Florida Beer never list the ABV? Questions, questions!
