It's time to rethink light beer. Right now there's too much overlap - bland flavors, redundant branding, macro-brewery after macro-brewery. You deserve better than this sea of sameness, and Nite Lite is our way to raise the light beer standard. An unfiltered, unpasteurized, all natural, craft light lager that everyone can get excited about.

Perfect for BBQs, tailgating before the game, hanging at the beach, enjoying a concert... you know the drill. Nite Lite is simple - light bodied and crisp - just as a light beer should be.

Look...Pale yellow with a white frothy head rd AAL look. The usual beer look of the big dudes
Smell...A light smell of citrus and grassy hops . Nothing crazy with the standard scent of a traditional Helles lager.
Taste...A sweet cracker taste off the bat and smoothly delivering an easy drinking lager. Little bitterness but enough to not be too sweet. A light airy sip for sure.
Feel...Very thin but incredibly easy to drink. lighter carbonation than I imagined but i believe that to be true to the style. a thin layer of dissipating white foam
Overall...A nice beer that really is great for the moment when you like a beer taste with less filling haha.
I feel i needed to rate this beer for what it is. A light Beer that is tasty and well made and that is the trick isn't it?

Poured from a can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a super clear golden color with a small head of fizzy white foam. The head has a good level of retention, fading slowly over time and leaving a bit of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is more moderate in nature, but is heaviest of a slightly grainy and cracker malt smell. Along with these aromas comes a decent showing of caramel and a touch of hay.
Taste – The taste begins with a rather crisp and clean caramel and light cracker malt flavor mixed with a touch of corn and some light doughiness. These tastes constitute the flavor profile for the most part and make for an easy sipper.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is light and crisp with a carbonation level that is on the higher and more effervescent side. For the low abv and the style the feel is great and makes for a nice crisp sipper.
Overall – An easy drinking light brew. A bit more flavorful than the macro brew light brew (but also higher in calories at 120 per 12 oz at 4.3). Overall, a good session, light brew that is good for long haul summer drinking.

Can’t add more than has already been said here. Its accomplishes what it sets out to do. It’s a great lighter option that one ups the macro brews.

16oz can into a tall Lager glass.
L: Pours straw yeasty light yellow w a thin white head that leaves quickly down to edge foam, large carbo bubbles, no lacing.
S: Light crackery malts, a hint of hay, lightly floral, clean & simple.
T: Gently pale & lightly sweet, a hint of yeast, an echo of lemon/lime, crackery malts, fairly clean, a touch of honey, a wisp of bread, affably tangy for a few seconds with a suggestion of fruit.
F: Lightly crisp w a light body and a fast, brisk, non-drying finish that is rather smooth & glassy.
O: A tasty and EZ drinking American Craft Lager that is not complex. It has a crushable feel w a touch of sweetness and would compliment a variety of cuisines. It is very good in its style.

Nucleated Tulip
Look: Hazy pale yellow, pouring a half finger head which dissipated into medium lacing

Smell: medium strength nose. Doughy malt shines through with lime and lemon, and some grassy qualities. Straight forward

Taste: starts with slightly sweet doughy malt with a sort of lemon/lime tang that fades into a lightly bitter grassy hops. Finish has more of a slowly fading biscuit flavor with more of the grassy/veggie hops. Simple

Feel: Light-moderate body with gentle carbonation. Semi-crisp finish

Overall: Well overall its just a crushable, easy sipping ale. Its simple to be blunt, but it achieves what I think they set out for this lager to be

Can gifted by Mike Gotch. Thanks and cheers!

Pale body with a thin white cap. Corn in the nose. Definitely tastes like a “lite” beer. Not my thing…

I've rarely had anything from Night Shift but I could not resist picking this up for $7.99/4 pack. Pours a whitish-gold hue with some lacing. Light and crisp in the nose with a touch of cut grass. Sweet, crisp malt greets the nose. Mouthfeel is light and airy and does not pound the taste buds. It checks all the boxes as to the type of beer I'd rather drink these days since I have cut back quite a bit. Well worth the price.
