Typical light lager. Nothing special but not terrible. Would probably not buy again given the choice.

Served from the can in a taster glass.

You know it's a solid birthday when you spend it at a beer distributor's trade show, right? Here at the Cisco table, we've got Sankaty Light. It pours a clear straw topped by a finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light white bread, mild flowers, mild grass, and a kiss of what seems to me to be tangelo rind. The taste brings in more of the same, the lightness in the name and the smell underlined here on my tongue. In addition, the bread from earlier appears to have taken on a slight sweetness, though it's not much to speak of. The body is appropriately light, with a light moderate carbonation and a kinda watery feel. Overall, this isn't a bad beer by any stretch, especially considering how overwhelmingly underwhelming the light lager style has become over the years, but it's overt mildness borders far too much on boring for its own good. I could see myself drinking another at some point in the future, but it's unlikely I'll have paid for it.
