3.68/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a fluted tulip glass, color is transparent, pretty clear gold, very light carbonation, head presents thick and frothy but dissipates to light cover with very slight clinging.

Smell is very mild, underdone notes of some pale malt with some wheat and biscuit, but very weak.

Flavor is pretty solid after a weak nose, nice mix of malt and wheat flavors but the biscuit/wheat mix holds through, some feint hop bitterness. A very pleasant mix of easy drinking flavors.

Mouthfeel is a little drying to the tongue, but overall the light sweetness plays well with this quality. A little lingering sweetness could make this very pleasant.

Overall, I like this style of brew and this one is pretty solid from a can. Some slightly lingering qualities in the mouthfeel but a pretty tasty easy drinking brew.

Quick edit: as it warms theres a nice creaminess that develops, which aided in the flavor and mouthfeel.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours straw with 3 fingers of white head that dissipates slowly. Extremely low carbonation and excellent clarity.

N: Has a really weak nose. I can only sense a little lemony citrus.

T: Lemony wheat and pilsner malts.

M: Medium bodied, crisp, clean and refreshing.

O: Crisp, refreshing and mild. The flavors are very weak. This would make a great substitute for water.

A- Looks like a pretty golden yellow pale ale

S- smells like Budweiser

T- just like Budweiser

M- medium

Overall - When i had this beer i was hopping it was going to be a beer with some lemon flavoring and some crisp taste .Instead i got Budweiser. If you feel you absolutely most buy this beer do yourself a favor and pick up some Budweiser at least your wallet will thank you .

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A-Bright, slightly hazy golden yellow with a thin white ring that left minimal lace.

S-Light toasted biscuit malt with a touch of lemon zest zing. All in all quite light.

T-Acidic biscuit with a surprisingly strong ending bitterness. A lemon like zing at the end. A fairly impressive flavourful brew for being so light.

M-Light bodied with a nice lingeing bitterness from the hops and lemon zest zing.

D-Better than expected. An easy drinking "light" pounder. This one will go down well come summertime.

On tap at Old Forge on 12/26/08.

A - Clear golden body with a slight haze and lots of active carbonation. Thin patchy white head retained fairly well and left a good bit of lacing.

S - Subtle nose with scant traces of lemon zest, some grassy hops and a faint biscuity malt character.

T - This ale is similar to a pilsner in flavor, with a grassy hop profile, biscuity malt backbone and a touch of lemon.

M - Medium body with vigorous carbonation and oily texture. Finishes with a crisp hop bite and moderate dryness on the palate.

D - This ale was quite a bit hoppier than I expected, and seemed to drink more like a pilsner than an ale. This was my favorite of their initial line-up.
