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

A: The beer is hazy light pale lager in color. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving only wispy lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of bready and corn-like malts are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by corn-like malts. Only slight amounts of hops and associated bitterness are noticeable, but there are enough to prevent any sweetness. There is no bad aftertaste compared to some of the other beers in the style.
M: It feels light-to medium-bodied and slightly smooth on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seemed to be fuller in body compared to the light lagers made by macro breweries, but didn't have any offensive flavors in the taste or aftertaste.
