Was in JAX for a monday night FBall game and tried the River City Brewing co. the Jag Light poured a pale yellow color with very thin white head. The smell included barley and toasted oats. The taste was a slightly bitter and left the bpallet dry. The mouthfeel was light in body with mild carbonation. Overall it was ok nothing to get crazy about.

served at River City Brewing

Clear light straw color with white head. Good retention

Decent flavor for a light beer, mostly sweet malt, but there was very little flavor or aroma. Worse yet, this is one of the most watery beers I've ever had.

I concluded that I would often rather drink a glass of water ... OK, not Jacksonville tap water, but filtered water.

Poured on-tap at River City Brewing Company in a pint glass, the beer was a pale yellow color with no significant head to speak of. Bubbling shows an increased amount of carbonation. The nose had aromas of corn and toasted oats. The beer itself had a slightly sour malt flavor with a slightly bitter aftertaste. The beer was extremely dry in mouth, with a quick, clean finish. All in all, extremely standard for the style, and nothing remarkable or outstanding about the beer.

-Crystal clear very pale straw color. Very little head.

-Aroma very faint malt, no hops.

-Taste very muted. Extremely low hops bitterness, some crisp grain notes. A slight chemical flavor in the aftertaste.

-Watery body. No carbonation fizz or alcohol.

-Well made, no flaws. Just very bland and watered-down.

A: single finger head on clear straw colored body.

S: nicely fruity arOma with lemon and orange citrus and grains.

T: lemon citrus provides a sweet and mildy tart flavor. Grains and pale malts.

M: light body and high carbonation. Crisp.

Overall: for a light beer this one is fairly flavorful but the adjunct lager after taste reminds you of its true nature.
