Very pale and clear straw gold. Lemon-white cap of fine, uneven fluff, with surprisingly good retention. Nose is faint lemon, sweet not sour, pinch of yeast, some grass. Light grain palate, adjunct but not distractingly so. No honey suggestions, which is good. Overall, like mineral water with a few drops of lemon and melon juice. Pretty standard fare, refreshing enough, light in body, with tight spritz carbonation.

An hour before my buddy's wedding in Bascom, OH this week, I decided more "emergency" beer was needed for possible late night. So I ran down the road to Tiffin to pick somehing up and this was what I ended up with. I was going to do the regular Old Mil but they only had thirty packs and that seemed excessive.

This is incredibly bland and flavorless but also overcarbonnatedand watery. Fine for easy pounding but not something worth looking out for.

This is the best tasting light beer I have had, I normally do not like light beer, I only drink it rate it. I would drink this again only if it were free.

Im embarrassed to say this, but this beer is actually a great tasting light beer. Who knew? It's got a clean taste with no tinny or weird aftertaste. I'm going to start buying this beer for the warmer months because i think it'll be a great lawn mowing beer. Don't be embarrassed like I've been, pick some of this up, it's actually better than most of the more expensive mass produced light beers. True Story!

Super light yellow aal light beer kinda thing going, solid white head, almost average retention. Aroma was just industrial beer smells, aluminum, corn.

Taste, super carbonated, light noble hop, almost no barley content. Super watery mouthfeel. Even though its really lightly hopped flavor wise, the lack of a malt body allows a distinct, soapy bitterness to jump around. High alpha acid hops and a super long boil = less hops to pay for.

Poured from a 12oz can into a Pilsner glass. L: pale straw yellow. Clear, decent effervescence. S: light white bread malts. Honey, apple juice. Aroma actually gets better as it warms. T: better cold. Off flavors present as it warms. Mineral and rice. F: crisp. Pretty dry and clean. Not too watery. O: good, better than the original.
