From notes taken 07/23/17:

Pale, clear, fizzy straw gold. Looking through it to my computer screen, looks more like a white whine, that slightly greenish yellow. Delicate, weightless, fine, even fluffy head. White with lower retention. Grains and honey on the nose and a sweetness like banana but this gives way soon enough. Grass, grain, lemon in front, as well as slightly metallic, with banana kicking in again toward the back. Light-bodied, with spritz and prickly near-effervescence, smooth overall.

I was so excited to get two free bottles of beer from a client that was moving and trying to get rid of it. Well, after drinking it, I'm not so thrilled.

It is clearly very light when you pour it out. Very little head that disappears almost immediately, if you care about such things.

Flavor is disappointing. I'm no professional but would NOT recommend!

Pours to look like a yellow dyed water, very clear. Initial head is thick but fizzes rapidly to a thin white layer atop. Scent is light, mostly grain, with a little cracker note to it. Taste is light, slightly sweet, grain, notably corn, with some mild notes of malt and a little earth, small amount of bitterness to it. Fairly crisp and clean body, a tiny lingering note of bitterness and sweetness after the finish. All in all it's an easy drinking, non-offensive beer. More flavor than I had expected and certainly a decent light lager beer. I'd willingly drink it again on a really hot day.

I did not want to like this beer. Only beer tap working at MKE airport bar near delta terminal. Not great flavor but refreshing. Much better than expected!

Best light beer out there! Great at the beach, floating the river or mowing the lawn (on a riding lawn mower).

I think this is one of the best light beers. I personal do not like any light beers, but if I have to go out and hang with wife and friends then this would be a good alternative. Keeps me in check and prevents me from saying exactly what I am thinking. = ) We keep friends because of this beer. Other wise I would comment on everyone’s stupidity. E’nuff said, you know what I am talking about. Going to get an IPA. Later.

Not sure why this rating is so low. Every time I go to the beer store or lcbo it’s out of stock so clearly people love it. Smooth as it gets . I drive to other locations just to get what I want .

One of the best light beers ever. Non filling and light on impurities leave a crisp beer than can be consumed in mass while suffering little consequences. Perfect for sunny days and activities.
