3.23/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Pour: Effervescent, clear, light orange-amber color. Two fingers of white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass.
Smell: Caramel malts and grain. Light floral hops.
Taste: Like watered-down Boston Lager. Sweet caramel malty taste and some hop bitterness, with a slightly biscuity middle. Unlike the "Big 3" this has no taste of adjuncts at all.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with high carbonation.
Drinkability: It's definitely palatable. Better than the big three, for sure. I could just pound these.
Final Notes: For a light beer, this is where it's at. It's a little more caloric than the other options when it comes to light beer, but it's a lot more flavorful. However, it is still a light beer, and as such, don't set the bar too high for it. Decent, though.

Best by Aug 2014, poured into a pint glass
A- pours a clear dark golden color with an orange hue, small creamy white head that retains nicely, due to some carbonation bubbles shooting to the top
S- toasted cracker malt with a subtle bready sweetness, faint grassy hops
T- light bready sweetness continues into the flavor with hints of a cream ale, small traces of grassy hops mix with a bit of yeast, lightly toasted malt on the finish
M- light-medium body with moderate-but-biting carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp and dry finish, high drinkability
O- the best light beer I've had to date, this certainly isn't a style that I enjoy often, but SA did a good job with this one
