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.

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.

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.
