First had: on tap at Bethlehem BrewWorks
BBW's #1 seller, and it's no surprise. This is the beer people get when the walk in and ask, "What do you have that's like a Miller Lite?" All things considered, this one isn't too bad in a relative sense. Typical pour: clear, golden yellow with a thin, fizzy, white head that dissipated almost completely. Distant aroma, sweet and grainy. Taste of lightly toasted grain, sugar, corn, a touch of hops in there somewhere. Definitely went down smooth and easy, with a light and watery body. Not very good, but not very bad for the style.

This beer poured out as a clear looking golden color with a thin white head that sticks to the glass fairly well. The smell of the beer is a little on the weak side, some grains and hops on the nose but not much else really going on here. The taste of the beer is probably the best part here. The sweetness upfront gently fades into a bitter aftertaste. The mouthfeel is pretty nice but a little too light and watery for me. Overall it's an average brew in my opinion.

Pours a bright clear gold color with thin cap of white head. Scent is very pale, almost non-existant, only faint notes of grain. Taste brings touches of dried grain only a fraction more than scent dictated, light light grassy hop note. Best quality is it lacks any sign of an off-charachter. Light bodied, suprisingly undercarbonated since the masses seem to like their light beer bubbly. It is what it is... we all have seen the people who walk into a brew pub or good beer bar and as for a Miller Lite, well this is what they get at Bethlehem Brew Works.

On tap at the Bethlehem Brew Works Brew Pub.
Poured a see through golden color with a small white head. Some hops and malts in the aroma. Sweet malty tasting with a crisp finish. I can see where this may be a stepping stone for the Macro drinkers.

Had this as part of the sampler the other day and couldn't quite figure it out so i decided to look it up. Says here it is an ale, which i suspected since i wasn't sure of their ability to lager. Anyway, it was a very clear and bright gold with a small white head that left nice lacing.
Smell was grainy, very much like a pilsner, which is mainly what led to my confusion. It tastes similar, not bad, just pretty boring. It is light and refreshing, crisp and clean. I certainly didn't mind drinking it, but i would never order it over their wit, oatmeal stout, or any seasonal. Well done and refreshing, but it just seems boring next to their other usually very good and interesting offerings.
