look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

16oz can poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a crystal clear light pale yellow with a moderate white head. Just a bit of visible carbonation in the body. Head dissipates in a couple minutes a leaves some spots of lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: Pretty standard light beer aroma here. A bit of corn or other adjunct blends with the malt. Slight touch of alcohol on the backend.

T: Nice even low key flavor here. Nothing stands out in it which I'm thinking was their goal. Just a mild dose of sweet malts that linger into the aftertaste.

M: Certainly fits into the light beer category mouthfeel wise. Crisp finish.

Overall this is a beer that could be enjoyed for hours on end on a warm summer day. Easily beats other light beers I've had with its inoffensive and smooth flavor hence the slightly above average rating.

Pint can poured into a 12 oz. glass.

Appearance: Pours a light straw color with a half-inch white head. Heavy-duty carbonation, and also fairly heavy lacing. Looks like light beer.

Aroma: Smells like a light beer, but less off-putting than most. The adjuncts (mostly corn) do come through, but they aren't overpowering. Also some barley, grain, and minimal hops.

Taste: It's decent for a light lager. It's light of body and the flavors are pretty minimal. I'd much rather have this than a BMC light lager, but it's also pretty watery and flavors (which follow the nose) are faint.

Mouthfeel: Watery, as you'd expect.

Overall: In the land of the blind the one-eyed light beer is king. If you have a friend who swears by Coors Light and Bud Light, turn him or her on to this. As light beers go, it's as good as the style is likely to get.

Thanks to angrybabboon for finding the single for me.

Appearance: Pale clear gold. Head is bright-white and bubbly. Lively carbonation. Some notches and splotches of lacing. Standard affair.

Smell: Very light pale malts. Grassy with some watered down barley. Some sweet cereal grain and a very neutral hop profile. Slight grass and hay. Super clean.

Taste: Slight toasted grain. Super pale malts, almost nothing to it. A bit of barley with some grassy notes. Tastes like you watered down some standard 'Gansett. Lightly sweet. Not much too it, but what it does have is not bad.Par for the style, but better.

Mouthfeel: Light pushing toward medium body with a moderately high carbonation. Clean and super easy drinking.

Overall: Platinum champion of light lagers.

From 07/26/13 notes. Had this at Pier 26 in NYC at the Bouncing Souls/Gaslight Anthem show.

a - Pours a hazy medium orange-yellow color, with one inch of bright white head and high carbonation evident.

s - Smells a bit skunky. Also some bread, grains, wheat, and dough. Not very good.

t - Taste is much better because no skunkyness, but pretty average. Tastes of grains, wheat, dough, biscuit malts, bread, light spice, light floral notes.

m - Light body and high carbonation. A bit too carbonated, otherwise easy to drink.

o - Overall a below average light beer. Nose was a bit skunky, and a bit overcarbonated. Taste wasn't skunky, but pretty plain and not much going on. Worth skipping, wouldn't seek it out again.
