(Served in a strange)
A- This beer pours a bright yellow clear body with a thin white head that fades to a ring quickly and a gentle carbonation.

S- The DMS hint of cooked corn leads to some dry field corn notes in the finish.

T- The club soda flavor has a slight sweetness but is well lagered as the pils malt and field corn flavor in the finish are more dry. The field corn takes on more of a breakfast cereal flavor as the beer opens up.

M- The light mouthfeel has a gentle fizz in the finish.

O- This beer has a very light flavor and is a very clean lager. There is not much Pils malt flavor compared to other competing flavors.

Was a gift from a employee of mine. Short's mix pack. Worst one but not that bad. I enjoy a lager after a long day.

12 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a pilsner glass

L - It is pale yellow in color. A short lived white head was perched on top.

S - The smell is sweet, almost honey-like. I also get some grain.

T - It tastes just like it smells, sweet and grainy.

F - Moderate

O - If they were trying for a crappy adjunct lager, they nailed it. It represents the style well. I just do not care for the style.

I could drink this beer all day. Sometimes I'm in the mood for something that's not an in-your-face IPA or stout, and this is easy to drink, with a nice malty flavor and just the right amount of carbonation. Don't be fooled by "light" in the name, it is a full-bodied beer.

Appearance - very light straw yellow. No head or lacing at all

Smell - Oats/ grains and straw. Not much hoppiness to it at all

Taste - get a lot of cereal grains

Mouthfeel - light, crisp, and easy to drink

Overall - fun alternative to the Big lagers, but nothing special
