BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Night Shift Brewing

Style: Light Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

I know this is positioned as a craft alternative to Miller Lite, but I think the problem is it is executed so well that maybe you should just save a little bit of money and drink Miller Lite

A: The beer is crystal clear straw yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that settled down, leaving a thin film of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of grainy malts and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of grainy malts and grassy malts with a light amount of bitterness. There are some faint hints of corn.
M: It feels light-bodied and very clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has the drinkability of a lawnmower beer without hardly any aromas or flavors in the way of adjuncts.

Pale straw color and crystal clear. Modest head and nearly no lace (a couple of spots).

A typical macro American lager smell, which means little to nothing to the nose.

Highly carbonated. In fact, the bartender offered a sampling of Genesee Lager as a comparison. The only distinction was the higher carbonation of this beer. The rest is a watery pale malt and nearly no hop. One might call it retro, but most serious beer drinkers will say bleh.

Knowing their other beers, Night Shift obviously accomplished their goal. Beer lovers will say Bravo but avoid this beer.

Bought a can at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow. This beer had a yellow, clear appearance with visible carbonation. Fluffy white head with patchy lacing. The beer had a bready and grain-rice aroma. Somewhat bitter but nothing overpowering; malt and light tartness. Very good mouthfeel; crisp and refreshing. Overall, good beer for the lager style.
