The taste is light and bland, almost non-existent. Not a whole lot there, really. It's my first time drinking this brand and it's quite cheap here in upstate NY, so I hope the other styles will be better than this. But this particular style is disappointing.

Pours a clear golden color. There's a frothy, fairly thick head. The nose is is fairly standard for this style of beer. Nothing skunky, but not impressive either. The taste is fairly light flavored. The feel is also fairly light. There's some carbonation, butnot much else.

A thanks to cpolking for sending this beer. Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some grains and malts. Taste is light, well carbonated, some grains, a bit on the bland side. Feels light in the mouth and overall, while nothing to get excited about, it's certainly not the worst light beer out there.
