Everything about this beer is light. Pours light gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is light fruity hops and straw. Tastes pretty good, for what there is. Light grapefruit and orange hops with very light pale malt. Pretty good, especially for a low alcohol/light beer.

This beer pours a clear, light yellow color. Carbonation bubbles rise up from the bottom of the glass. It boasts a very tiny white head. The head fades quickly, leaving no lace.

This beer smells like the water in canned corn. It has a very slight grainy aroma to it as well. Nothing else.

This beer has almsot no flavor at all. I taste a very slight grainy flavor. Other than that, it is pretty much carbonated water tinted yellow.

This beer is lightly carbonated. It leaves no aftertaste what so ever.

I dont know what type of session beer this is. I am having trouble giving drinkability a score because if I want to drink a beer, this would have low drinkability. I dont taste any beer. However, it is easy to drink. I guess that means it should score high.

Overall: No problem with the flavor, xcept that it has none. Dont drink this one. I should have known better.

12oz bottle drank at Baja Fresh in Brea, CA. Yeah it's a light lager alright, but my main comment on it was it tasted pretty astringent. I had happened to have a couple coors lights at a baseball game the day before and that was so much cleaner than this beer, although it lacked just as much flavor.

This was ok. It was good for a light beer.

Appearance- gold color, transparent

Smell- bready, nice

Taste- nice for a light beer, light flavor

Mouthfeel- thick for a light beer

Drinkability- I might drink it again. I dunno maybe, not too bad though

On tap at Karl Strauss

A: Transparent straw yellow with a finger of white foam that quickly fades.

S: Light grassy notes with grain and biscuit. I get a little honey.

T: Grainy malt with a mild biscuit note. There's a faint grassiness. I get a trace of honey.

M: Light body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: For a light lager this is decent, but it's pretty flavorless and not something I would ever order again.

12 ounce bottle at Bad Dog Ale House in El Segundo

Poured into a pint glass with a golden color and a very small white head

Smell was weak and a little hint of hops and yeast

Taste was smooth, but not much to it

Very easy to drink, super light, and goes down with no problems

Low alcohol content

This beer pissed me off in multiple ways.

First off, it looks like a macro lager. Okay, I shouldn't have been drawn by the reference to a very cool surfing movie. Yellowy color with no depth or variation, thin white head.

Smells like nothing. Tastes ... like not much. Maybe some citrus in there, and skunky malt. Karl Strauss is a microbrewery. They have a few decent beers. Enough with the skunk!

Then, to top it all off, I realize this weak, watery beer is 2.8% alcohol. That's just insulting.
