Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, small hop and somewhat earthy. In the taste, just like the aroma, earthy and a small hop. A small bitterness and light mouthfeel, with a small dry to clean aftertaste. Light, nice hop, and refreshing.

This was poured from the tap at the brewpub in a decent sized (4-5 oz?) sampling glass. It has a very clear light golden color with a small head. The aroma is one of mild malt and more dominant hops. Upon tasting, the hops are most dominant, but it's nicely balanced with the toned down malt flavor, not bad for something billed as a 'light' beer. It has a medium-light body with moderate carbonation.

Overall, this is not a bad light beer. However, it’s not really a beer for a serious beer drinker (with taste). This is something for someone who tagged along for the evening. There are too many other good beers here to spend time with.

I didn't classify this as a "Light" because it includes wheat in its grain bill. The description says “lightly hopped,” but the wheat taste is well represented here and makes up for any light taste. Olde Peninsula's menu claims this has 116 calories in a 12 oz. glass. Sounds about right.
