Best tailgating beer there is. Smooth easy drinking. Brewed in the best Damn football town there is.

Look - slightly more color than most light lagers, more tint that most, head is white but must pour aggressively to get much of one and like other light lagers it does not stick around to lace the glass

Smell - nothing to brag about but again comparing to the other light lagers is is just slightly grainy/malty and mild hop aroma

Taste - is slightly grainy and malty and mild hop taste, again comparing to the other light lagers it is more flavorful

Feel - mouth feel is somewhere between lager and light lager but not thin like a Mich Ultra

Overall - it is the best of the light lagers and my go to if I am going to drink light lager. It's 94/95 calories and 2.8 carbs is friendly to my diabetic system. I think Pittsburgh Brewing Co. has done the most within the light lager category.
