Notes: Extra Fancy Light Beer with Watermelon and Salt. A light but complex blend of watermelon rind and candy fruitiness waft from the slightly pink hued ale. Mild sweetness with saline mouthfeel play against the watermelon overtone. The dry and bright finish will leave you racing for more. 2.62% ABV because, well, Marathons.

I really like trying all the new beers being released in OCB's low-cal line, twelve by my count (depending on where you set the upper range for ABV.) The Low-Cal Line (as I like to call it) offers a great variety of styles from Stoutling to table beers like Beerathon or, its Belgian daddy, Beer for Lightweights. The Lo-Cal Line is getting more specific in how it varies its process (such as sparging.) The calorie counts and analytics listed on the label are getting more specific, too. I'm also developing the sneaking suspicion that the Low-Cal Line is OCB being thrifty and continuing the Small Beer Anchor tradition of using the second wort run-off... before feeding the spent malt to pigs.

So while I give great Overall points for OCB's Low-Cal Line, what is most important to me is The Line seems to make lunch better. For example today when I only had a simple cheese taco. I'll save the balance of the can for a snack in late afternoon. I'm starting to get used to the more demure Lite Tastes and Smells, but not enough to give a constructive critique of Beerathon. It certainly Looks clear like a lager, albeit with no foam. Curiously, it Feels bubbly enough.

3/20/23 On the first day of Spring, I had the second can of the 4-pack I just bought from The Mousetrap. It, too, also made lunch better. An lunch needed salt, so Beerathon made the experience complete.
