A - Pretty much the same as the regular but almost water color yellow like pee. Had fizzes out to nothing quickly too.
S - Again pretty close to the original with corn adjacent, some hops faint if any and bready malts.
T - Well it drinks rather well for a light beer hops hidden, kind of watery but decent beer body. Corn isn't skunky.
M - Way to easy to pound I had like 12 in a night and it didn't even get me drunk. What is the allure of light beer?

Overall the price is right and it taste 50% better than BMC light beers but with such a low ABV I will never split a case again. OK beer I guess...

A: Pours a nice golden hue with thin layer of foamy head resting on top.

S: Aroma is sweet malts, light grassiness, and a touch of bittering hops.

T: Taste is basically the same as above, sweet malts adjunct light bittering hops.

M: Mouthfeel is fuller than typical light beer, usually I turn down light there are about 3 exceptions this is one of them.

O: Overall a good beer for its class,always fresh and tasty.

I haven't had this beer since I moved from Ridgway back in 2003. I appreciate my father bringing a case down on his recent visit.

A - bright yellow gold with a thin, fizzy, white head that has little retention; a lot of carbonation rising to the top

S - grainy, corn sweetness, maybe some grass

T - grainy, grassy, slightly bitter

M - light bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a decent light lager. There are just enough hops to keep the palate slightly interested. It's a bit sweet, but it doesn't have any of the offensive notes that often plague this style. It's a very light, easy to drink, refreshing lawn mower beer.
