4.15/5  rDev +26.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. No freshness dating on this one. Fairly dark for a light beer, dark straw colored. Decent white head that leaves a nice ring around the glass. Crystal clear clarity.

Not much in the aroma. Some maltiness but overall pretty muted. However, no smell is spot on for the style.

Good flavor. Key word there is flavor. This one actually has a taste to it. Slightly malty with no perceived adjunct flavors.

This could go up against non light lager out there. I really liked this beer for a light beer. Contains 126.78 calories per bottle (a indicated on the bottle label) so it isnt super light. A very good light lager.

One of the best light beers I've ever had.

Many light beers go way overboard with having a taste of too much water, or staleness.
This beer was so clean and refreshing, it literally almost tasted like nothing. Just cold goodness.

I would definitely refer this beer to anyone looking for a real light beer.

12 oz. bottle. A straw gold color with some light orange notes. There was a slight haze to it (may have been from chill). Head was minimal. It presented a fairly strong hop aroma, with a little bit of malt coming through. I also thought I smelled salt? The taste was a more balanced than the aroma, and was quite pleasant. There were some metallic and "husky" flavors in there as well. It came across as pretty highly carbonated, with a very light body. A highly drinkable beer, but not very exciting.

poured a medium amber color with white puffy head that lasted throughout the glass. Smell is slightly sweet but malty than I expected. Taste is nice and creamy, really very enjoyable. Aftertaste is a slight dryness that is also enjoyable. This would be a great session beer.

Tasted On-Tap 07/10/05 at the Ram's Head Tavern in Rehobeth Beach, DE.

Standard light straw color with decent carbonation. Light grainy almost adjunct type aroma and flavor with no hop character to speak of. Light bodied and a bit watery.

Not much there but decent enough for hot weather I guess

I sampled what was called the C 126 Light at the Ram's Head Tavern in Savage Mill, MD. Poured a light straw color with a small head and medium fizz, looked like a light beer. The nose was absent to neutral, had a malt flavor although slightly under attenuated, slightly syrupy. Finish was malty, Body seemed bigger due to syrupiness, looked better than it tasted.

3.2/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured out a very clear and light yellow-gold that looks every bit like a Bud light. The aroma is of sweet grains and has a bread-like quality to it. There aren’t any bad off flavors in this one. It’s pretty clean tasting although nothing special about it. Light and watery body with a touch of hoppy bitterness. Not bad, drinkable.
