Ubiquitous pale yellow american lager appearance. Some sweetness is the aroma. The taste is slightly bitter but acceptable for a pale lager.Has more hops than a typical lager. Hops more like a pale ale not the mild processed hops that you normally find in a lager or pilsner. Not bad, but not great.

A- Poured from the tap with a thin white head, which quickly evaporated, leaving little bits of lacing behind. The body was a well carbonated pale yellow... one of the palest looking beers I have ever seen.

S- smells of weak pale malts, and a trace of low alpha hops. Very weak nose.

T- Tastes like a macro light lager. Not bad, just not good. Pale malts and weak hops... that's about it. Underwhelming.

M- Thin like water, but it at least it has a nice soft carbonation going for it.

D- Drinkability is the one thing this beer has going for it. It goes down very smooth- just like water!

Off the tap at the brewery this beer was a crystal clear pale yellow color with a thin white head. Poor retention and lacing. The aroma was very muted, some yeast and pale malt. The flavors were better pronounced, but not much. Watery pilsner malt, hints of floral hops and that was it! The body was light, of course the mouthfeel watery, of course and the carbonation medium/high. Just another weak light beer.

Went to the brewery and had the sampler. This one had some pretty good lacing but the clear gold, thin head appearance left much to imagination. Aroma had a slight spice to it but a mostly yeasty flavoring was typical. Although a clean and sweet beer, the flavors were completely watered down. This watery texture definitely helped its mouthfeel live up to the beer's name. Definitely good for heavy pub food and for those who like a light beer.

I broke my ususal tradition and decided to try a pint of the light beer to see if it was any good.

Appearance: very pale light yellow in color with a thin foam layer as a head. This disappeared quickly.

Smell: basically no aroma as the mildest hint of sweetess is detectable only by putting your nose almost on the surface of the beer.

Taste: it was what I expected for the style - a very mild almost watered down version of a pilsner. Little malt sweetness and virtually no bitterness makes up a very bland and lifeless beer. Very one dimensional as no real discernable flavors are found by the tastebuds.

Mouthfeel: lightly crisp from start to finish. Clean finish too. Light in body.

Drinkability: even for a light beer with little flavor, it was easy to throw this back. What made it easier was ordering some buffalo wings to help me finish the pint. I would avoid this unless you enjoy light beers.

This beer is pale yellow straw with a medium white head. The smell is very light with only a veggie aroma. The taste is light and weak with a vegatable flavor that's not all that pleasent. The m/f is light and watery. As with almost all light beers, this is weak, watery and a waste of time to drink.
