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.

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.

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.

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.
