Notes/Commercial Description:
Served in September 2012.American light lagers and Pilsners are easy to drink and refreshing. They are not, however, easy for a craft brewer to make – but we are always up for a challenge. Pilsner malt and flaked rice provide sweet cereal grain notes while German and Czech hops add spiciness and a balanced bitterness to the finish. Cold fermented and aged with a German lager yeast, the palate is clean with a snappy finish.

12 oz can was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Pilsner malts, cereal grains, lager yeast, spicy, herbal, and grassy hops.

Taste: Same as above with mild hop bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Draft or bottle, alright alright. I'll be enjoying these again in the future.

12 oz can. Undated.
Light pale color with a weak head.
Rather ordinary but veering off in the use of citrus -tinged hops.

Very pale yellow, like dried wheat stalks. A nice, frothy 2-finger pale white head and no lacing. Light aroma, mostly faint malts and some czech hops. Dried grass clippings, caramel malts, oats on the nose. Hop-forward and malt-backward as this starts dry and finishes sweetish. Minimal aftertaste. Notes of light lemonade, some vanilla bean, shandy-esque and very light on flavor overall. Some earthy hops, but not much. Light mouthfeel and after. Overall it lives up to its name: LIGHT. A good porch or summer chore beer, but not much else.

Yay craft beer in cans!

Pours a decent fizzy almost 1 finger head that fades fairly quickly, reinforced by streaming column of bubbles, crystal clear watery straw slight lemony yellow color. 3.5

Nose mostly grain, doughy fresh straw and raw dough bready grainy, ligh grassy hops, faint touch of lemon cereal, fair fruity but crisp lager base. 4

Taste brings more of the same, straw mostly, bready doughy malt, toasty pilsner malts, grassy straw and a touch husky. Then into mild grassy hops, herbal grassy hops, noble hops, with fair to lighter bitterness. Plenty of fruity lager flavors too, a little minerality in the lager notes, not sulfur but a heavy mineral like. Fairly crisp though, light but full enough. Finish is dry and crisp, long mild grassy herbal hop, touch of straw and grainy malt also lingering. 3.75

Mouth is med to lighter bod, crisp, mildly soft lager, and decent carb. 4

Overall not bad, pretty much a nice German lager, with a decent noble hop, nice pilsner and straw malt, doughy, quite crisp, nice softness, a bit too much on the minerals, but still pretty tasty and enjoyable. 3.75

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Decent starting head that settles first to a dome and thin to thick rim bubbles. Very cloudy. Straw color. Some chunky globs for lace.

Mostly pale malt nose with no graininess. There's a touch of sourness as well.

For a "Light", this is quite flavorful. Lots of hop bitterness that I did not pick up at all in the smell. It leaves a moderately long aftertaste. The soft, pale malt is in the background on this one. Solid body for the style with plenty of carbonation. In all, far better than I expected.
