Had this on tap at my wife's company picnic.

A: Piss-colored yellow with white head which quickly dissipates.

S: Smells like a macro light beer. 'Nuff said.

T: Not bad for a light beer. I would definitely prefer this to a macro light lager, but what's the point of even drinking this style from a "micro"? If I want this type of beer, I'll just get a macro and save a lot of cash.

M: Watered down.

D: As far as light lagers go, I wouldn't say this is especially drinkable. Don't get me wrong, this is easy to drink, but most macros would be even easier ot throw back.

Serving type: on-tap

I tried this about 5 months ago, and was indifferent about buying it. The bartender at a local Cajun restaurant recommended it, so I gave it a go. Nothing special, just a typical light lager beer. For a micro light lager it's not bad, but not anything special. However If you are trying to count calories and carbohydrates, the bottle does or did have a percentage chart on the label.
