So here's 12 ounces of lager which I am ab...wait, it is a LIGHT lager?! But I don't like this style, you see. Have you ever tried Bud Light, Corona Light, or any others of the like? Well, I think I have shot myself here, but at least it's a one and out. So, here's 12 ounces of light lager, and on to the beer:

A heady beer at the pour, which drops away to a soapy lace and top, while beneath is a pale gold beer with lots of visible sparking bubbles. There is aroma fortunately, but there is a strong scent of diacetyl which does not belong. Slightly citrusy with a bang of butterscotch. Is this lager or bitter I'm about to drink?

Very light in flavor, which means that even a small flaw can wreck its balance. It was doing okay until a modest burst of esters and kiss of diacetyl came to the scene. Otherwise, it would be a light wave of grain and hops. Despite a lackluster overall flavor, the beer is very easy to drink. The beer is light bodied, but surprisingly sturdy for its low alcohol level.

Next time I want a light beer, I'll go with a Sam Adams Light.

All things are relative and this light lager pours with nice body, significant aroma and great taste...for a light lager. The body is clean pale straw with a sizable bright white head. The aroma is lemony with nice cereal malts and a Pilsner like scent. The taste is crisp, light and lemony with tea leaf malts, cereal grains and an almost wheat like body. This is a hugely sessionable lager with significant personality and very well done....for a light lager.
