3.05/5 rDev -1.6%
A - Poured out a pale, golden yellow color with a one-finger, bubbly head of foam. It left little to no lacing.
S - It smelled of grains with some floral notes.
T - It had a sweet grain flavor with a touch of caramel and a slight spicy bitterness.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied lager with a dry finish.
O - This is an okay light lager. Better than most that are out there.

Pours a clear, straw color. 6/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus hops, pale malt, slight sweet malt, a hint of wheat. Fits the style of a Light Lager. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of wheat, and a hint of hops. Overall, as far as a Light Lager, this is a pretty good beer. Good appearance, feel, blend, and body.

Kraftig Light has a thick, slightly off-white head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance. There is no lacing associated with this beer. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up sweetness, light barley malt, and metal. Taste is of very mildly-roasted malt, sweetness, some aluminum, and bread. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Kraftig Light finishes crisp, fairly refreshing, drinkable, and mostly dry. Overall, this is at best and average light beer. There are no foul aspects, however.

Pours out straw yellow with decent bubbles. Looks like any AB brew.
Smell is very light yeast and alcohol. Not a lot here.
Taste isn't that bad. You could def. drink this instead of Bud Lite.
Mouthfeel is very clean and that isn't really a good thing.
Overall not a bad beer, just not a good beer.

Transparent straw color. Very weak head that fades to nothing. Soda bubbles form on the side of the glass.
Ultra clean smell of rice and a hint of corn.
Mild wheat grain flavor mixed with rice and corn husk. No skunkiness. Hint of leafy hop is barely detectable.
Light feel and high carbonation. Just enough texture to say it has a body. Crisp finish.
Slightly above average for the style. Smooth and easy to drink. Lacking in flavor, as expected. Standard AB flavor profile.

Excited to add my first brewery to the site! I poured this Light Lager from a bottle into a pint glass. It pours a clear straw color, produces a decent white head and has average retention. There is some lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma smells of pale malt,and a slight suggestion of earthy hops. The taste is light in body, mouthfeel is nice and features a base of pale malt, and a touch of hops. For a light lager, its pretty well balanced, slightly above average flavor- I would have to prefer this to Bud Light. Don't get to excited, at the end of the day its still a light lager. It's a contract brewed beer, not exactly craft, not exactly marco brewed either.

A - Pours a very light straw color with a nice 2 finger fluffy white head. Very nice carbonation as well
S - Not much on aroma. Smells like corn
T - Honestly a pretty decent light lager. It does have a little flavor. Seems slightly grassy.
M - Quite thin as expected.
O - A good alternative to Bud Light. It does have slightly more flavor. Nothing special though

12 ounce bottle poured into a pilsener glass. No "born on" or "best by" date.
Appearance: A nice medium yellow, slightly hazy. About a finger of white, fizzy foam that was gone in about a minute leaving no lacing. Nice carbonation bubbles.
Smell: Both malt and hops with more on the malt side and floral notes in the background.
Taste: There were more hops than malt here. Slight bitterness with citrus notes.
Mouth Feel: Like most light lagers it was pretty thin. Light carbonic tongue bite.
Overall: I've had a number of domestic lights and this is better than any of those. It tastes a bit more like a lager than the others. Still a light beer but a decent one.
