look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

I had a 10 oz glass of this at Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant in Phoenixville, PA. It came in a fat tulip glass.
Appearance: The body is a crystal clear pale yellow color. The head is a bright white color, one finger tall, not the best retention, very thin and sporadic lacing, and very tiny bubbles.
Smell: The aromas are completely absent.
Taste: The flavors are metallic, pine hops, and berries.
Mouthfeel: The body is thin with a clean finish.
Drinkability: This is a not the best beer.
Don't drink and review.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Iron Hill Brewery in Phoenixville, PA. Pours light golden hue with short-lived white head and nice lacing. Aroma and taste is of light hops and some sweet malt. Body is light and slightly crisp. Finish is short and slightly sweet. Light lager it is.

At Lancaster location:

A: clear, light yellow body; carbonation rising at decent pace, ever so light lacing left

S: light rice/corn adjuncts, nothing offensive, nothing bad

T: slightly sweet

M: light, sessionable, dry aftertaste and finish

O: good for the light lager style if that`s your wheelhouse, not sure if I`d come back to

On tap in Media. Pours a very pale straw yellow with a decent cap of foamy head. Nice lacing on the glass, perhaps due in part to the lower ABV. Good clarity.

Aroma is fairly bland; grainy; with a touch of sweetness; very light hops detected. Unexciting flavor; not terrible, not particularly tasty; passable for the style I suppose. Grainy cereal quality; corny taste; moderate sweetness that dries up in the finish; low bitterness, hop character is so vague as to be practically non-existent.

Light bodied (of course); medium-high carbonation, not overly fizzy, fortunately. Drinks easily, like water, because it's pretty damn watery.

Look this isn't the worst light beer you'll try but it ain't the best either, even when the competition is pretty lackluster. There's just not much here at all. But I've had so many other beers at Iron Hill I figured I'd give this one a shot. Not something a craft drinker is going to enjoy, but then, you already knew that.

Enjoyed at the Wilimington, DE location brewpub.

A: thin sliver of a white head on a clear pale golden body.

S: smells of grain and sweet corn, little on the malt side.

T: this one is very light and watery with mostly sweetness provided from corn and as advertised malts and hops are basically absent.

M: light body and high carbonation. very refreshing.

Overall: highly drinkable. I would still like at least SOME malt flavor here but its not a bad tasting beer overall.

2.85/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Sampled at the Maple Shade Iron Hill brew bar.

S: It looks like your basic light American lager. Pale gold with white a weak white head. Some tiny bubbles.

A: Has almost no smell, but maybe a little malt or even a doughy smell.

T: Very crisp and clean, piney hops.

M: It's refreshing. Smooth and very watery.

O: If you like light beer this could be for you. It's better than the macro stuff, but nothing special. It would be great after a long day working outside. The beer has to be very cold.

Serving type: on-tap
