This beer (and I use the label beer loosely) takes Light to a whole new level. Had it not had the color and smell of a light beer I would have swore I was drinking water. I will note that I tasted this at a beer festival and was tasting a variety of styles so it might have been over powered, that didn't affect any of the other beers that day, but in the interest of fairness I wanted to note that.

The color and smell were dead on for the style. However, to say the taste was laking is an understatement of quite a large proportion. I would compare this to alcohol enhanced water.

The beer by no means had a bad taste nor did it leave me searching for something to wash it out with. Quite the opposite it left no taste at all. I hope this is better than what I actually taste, if not I would recommend going to the local grocery or convience store and picking up a 12 pack of South Paw Light over this beer.

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 1.75

Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. No freshness date. Received in a mixed 6-pack from my friend Jody.

A: Bright straw with minimal white head (not much carbonation release on opening) that dissipates quickly.

S: Corn and sulfur

T: This beer is a combination of dirt, some vegetative flavors, sulfur and solventy off-flavors

M: It is definitely light in body but way too low on carbonation.

O: Drainpour and probably one of 2 or 3 drainpours lifetime. Really bad. Not sure if it was mishandled or what.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Color is light yellow in appearance. The smell is uneventfull and well lacking. Taste is that or a typical light beer and is no better that the standard one out there. Mouthfeel is watery and fizzy. Overall can any one brew a light beer that taste like a good primium beer. We can drink it but then again we will not look to drink it again.

I had this beer at 2 different Smoky Mountain Brew pubs in Gaitlinburg, and Pigeon Forge Tn.

Very golden appearance much like you would expect from a light beer

Smell was fine not offensive

Taste was average lighter in my opinion than a normal Light beer

Felt like beer in my mouth which I liked

Very drinkable

Overall an average beer, but a good change from the normal beers, I always like to try different beers at Brew Pubs and this was not a dissapointment.
