Pours a pale yellow color with small white head but very clear. Well carbonated. Not too much smell to it, but you get a light larger smell. Taste is a bit bitter (high on the bittering hops?). I get a hint of Heineken with the taste. You can really feel the carbonation in the mouth feel.

Overall this is an okay American lager.

The Sankaty Light Lager is a decent american style lager. The beer poured a pale yellow clear color with white head that is leaving some lace. There isnt much to the scent...maybe some wet grain and mild malt. The taste is well balance with subtle hint of lemony citrus. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a decent lager and would be best drank on warm summer days.

12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a light yellow color with great clarity and bubbles seen coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Lemon and grassy hops followed by biscuity malts. Hard to notice anything past this with all the hops and the low ABV.

Taste: Lemony, biscuity, lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, chewy, low to medium carbonation, and some lingering and tingly bitterness.

Overall: Really hoppy and light. Is this right? Nice hop profile and simplistic.
