look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

At the Draft House.

A: Serve a light golden color with a small head and bits of lacing.

S: Mild aroma of citrus and fresh grain.

T: Taste has a mild sweetness with fresh grain. Trace of bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Light body, crisp, smooth and somewhat refreshing.

O: Easy drinker. Not a beer that I would go out of my way for, but my wife enjoyed it. At least it has a leg up on the BMC offerings

Poured on tap at their Ale House into a pint glass. The beer was almost clear in color, with the slightest hints of yellow. Little to no head present. The beer had a sour and dusky taste, while also sharp and bitter, likely from the elevated carbonation levels. Very clean aftertaste, the beer is smooth and crisp in the mouth, and easy to drink.

This beer is a phenomenal light beer. Most light beers are without any malt flavor and are one dimensionally watery. I expected nothing different when I tried the leg lifter. To my surprise, you could actually taste the malt used in this beer. The hop balance was spot on as well. This is hands down the best light beer I've ever tasted without question.

Sample at the Rancho Dr brewpub. This beer is a clear pale golden color with tiny columns of rising bubbles and a thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Minimal lacing. Mild hops and grainy malt aroma. Light-bodied with weak grassy hops, grain and malt flavors. The finish is short and lightly hoppy. Below average overall.

This was very much like their kolsch. Almost indistinguishable side by side, actually when we had both in front of us. Very pale unattractive pale yellow with light, faint sweetness and very bland and watery. nothing special at all, but light, if that's what you want.

I had this at the draft house in Las Vegas. DC says this “smells like beer”. I must agree, it doesn’t smell of much of anything; it’s pale yellow and almost clear, it’s got very little taste. I’d say it maybe a watered down Bud Light. Very light, not much taste of hops, mainly a taste of yeast.

3.4/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear pale yellow / gold in color with a thin 1/4" head. No lacing developed.

Smell: aroma was a hint of malt, nothing else.

Taste: flavor was lightly malty, grass / hay, with a touch of bitterness. Carbonation level was lighter than expected. A touch more flavor in comparision to other macro light lagers.

Mouthfeel: light in body. Mouthfeel was crisp and smooth. Finish was clean and partly dry.

Drinkability: for light beer fans, this is the one to have at the Draft House over the other light macros offered.

Sampled on tap at the Draft House.

This light beer poured a clear, golden color with creamy, full, white foam that settled and clung to the glass well. The smell was minimal: a slightly sweet grainy, malty aroma. The taste was mostly hops with very light malt to back it up. There was a slight touch of fruitiness. The mouthfeel was smooth and clean and crisp with light body and moderate carbonation. This was an OK beer, but was a bit thin.
