Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams Glass.

Appearance: Light brown color with a thin white head, no lacing.

Smell: Grassy skunky notes with some hops.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light to medium bodied. Taste of mild hops, some sweetness to it as well, very light taste.

Overall: This is a great light beer, if I have to drink light this would be my first choice.

A-Clear amber, some carbonation, one finger head.

S-Skunky, earthy notes, in a way smells like a legit light lager would...

T-Grass caramel, very malt forward. No hops/bitterness to speak of. The blend of flavors isn't all there as well.

M-Light to medium bodied, not much carbonation.

O-Not sure why someone would ever drink this beer. Light on calories, light on flavor. However I always wanted to try it and now I have.
