Yellow with a distinct lager-type smell. Crisp mouthfeel with an earthy flavor and a slight bit of hoppiness involved in the mix. Decent but nothing to go out of your way in order to sample. A basic fizzy yellow lager which can have its time and place but not usually on my dime.

On tap at BRG in Chattanooga.
Pale golden color and very clear body with a semi-durable tan head and a little lacing.

Light aroma with more hops than malts.

Flavor: lightly sweet; very mild with hints of white bread and faint hops.

The body is smooth but very light. Good carbonation for style.

O: it's light!

Tried this at the Chattanooga Big River Grille. Poured a pale, clear yellow with a white head. Lots of sticky lace on the glass. Smells malty, with a light floral nose. Tastes crisp, clean, and mostly malty. Mouthfeel is even and light. Very drinkable, but not tons of character.

2.78/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear, effervescent, yellow body with a thin, fizzy, white head.

Smell: Light, clean aroma with only a very, very mild note grain and earthy hops.

Taste: A dry graininess with a hint of sweetness accompanies the very light pale malts. Faint kiss of earthy hops and bitterness. Finishes dry and clean.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Light lager removed from any flavors, and, being a 'lite', it's removed from any flavor. But, if you're looking for a low alcohol drink that's high on drinkability, then this may be your option.

This beer was very light bodied and had a wheaty taste. It was a very light yellow color and had no real deffinate taste. The beer lacked any backbone and I don't think that I would try it again. Still a lighter beer that one could session but I'm not sure one would want to do that.
