Who says lighter beers have to be boring? Let There Be Light is Wild Heaven’s first “sessionable” beer, coming in at only 4.7%, yet FULL of flavor. Starting with both barley and wheat, we added two rare hops—Nelson Sauvin and Sorachi Ace—along with a bit of orange peel, to create a complex beer with a citrus note that will change the way you think about “light” beer.

4.3/5  rDev +16.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives with a foamy cap that covers the clear amber liquid and drapes some lace down the side of the pint glass

Smell: Fruity, with vinous and pithy notes

Taste: Opens very fruity with a bit of bready malt; by mid-palate, the earthy hops assert themselves, adding a touch of pith, Sauvignon Blanc viniferous notes and tobacco; nicely balanced between the malt and the hops through to the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Packed with flavor and an ABV below 5% - what's not to like?

16 ounce pint - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Clear, coppery body with a slim, loose, white head. A few smudges of lacing on the descent.

Smell: Mild bread lightly toasted, faintly grainy and with a razor thin edge of implied sweetness atop hops yielding low hints of rough citrus rind and spice.

Taste: A light infusion of lightly bready pale malts with a hint of grain and sweetness. Spicy, pithy hops with a bitterness accentuated by the crisp carbonation. Dry and bubbly at the tail end with a bit of lingering breadiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: "Who says lighter beers have to be boring?" Well, nobody, I guess, Wild Heaven, but that’s honestly what the vast majority of light beer drinkers want. The ideals of light, cheap beer are deeply ingrained in the population, so changing the average beer drinker’s perception will be a steep, uphill battle. Who knows, maybe they’ll come around. Probably not, but you never know! Me, I’m just happy to have a few low-alcohol brews available.

Pours a clear dark golden with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled pale golden tan head. Aroma has malty, wheaty and fruity tones with a woody hint of hops. Flavor has a malty core plus fruity and wheaty/yeasty notes and a woody hop tone that suggests it was dry-hopped. Texture has good body and fizz. This is definitely a good beer for sipping on a hot day while relaxing on the porch.

On tap at Taco Mac Metropolis. Reviewed from Notes.

(Appearance) pours a light orange tone with an off-white head of a thick foam consistency. Very solid retention. Thin lacing consistent. Plenty of carbonation. Mostly clear. Looks on the intense side for a light beer. 4.5

(Smell) Mild malt base with evident coriander and orange spice. Hops are mild but present. Decent aroma quality, mild, not very potent. 3.5

(Taste) Begins with a crisp citrus and prickly malt profile and finishes with a heavy caramel and spicy hop bouquet. Flavorful. 4

(Mouthfeel) moist and smooth texture. Very little carbonation comes through save to tickle the tongue. Alcohol presence is very low, body is a medium, quite possibly the heaviest body you could achieve in something labeling itself as light. 3.5

(Overall) Certainly what I'd look for in any sort of light beer. If the price is right, it's worth it. $5.50 for a 16 oz pour. Good deal. 4
