From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Grassy malty flavor with a quick finish.

tnkw01 (1086) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle. Did not like this beer. It tasted like one of those beers you get at the discount bin. Color yellow. Weak head. Won’t drink it again.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear pale straw yellow body with a minimal fizzy white head the vanished very quickly. Smells like a clone of Coors Light, soggy grains and zero hops with a slight vegetal note. The flavor is pretty similar as well, which is to say, there’s not much of it. Thin weak and watery with fizzy carbonation. A craft/micro brewery has no business producing a beer such as this. I just don’t see a point to it. If folks want a Coors Light, then they’ll just order one of those. Can’t see myself ever buying this again, even if it is just to fill out a 6-pack as it was in this instance.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 6, 2012
On tap at brewery. Clear light yellow with a fizzy head. Very faint malty aroma and a watery grainy taste.

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Clear yellow with a white head. Bread aroma. Taste is lightly sweet malt with light bitterness. Watery. As expected.

mile (2969) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2012
Bottle. Light golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light sweetish malty aroma, light vegetable hoppyness. Body is light, malty - some cork and sweetish flavor, faint vegetable hoppyness. Finish is short, malty - some corn and lightly sweetish, faint vegetable hoppyness. Watery lager with vegetable hoppyness.

jjuf1853 (1238) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours an extremely pale, light yellow color with a somewhat foamy white head. Flavor and aroma are very light, but pretty much exactly what you would expect from a light beer. Still I wouldn’t be in a hurry to go back to it either.

Suttree (5131) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Clear yellow. No head. Smells like bread and corn. Tastes like bread and corn. No I’ve drank Abita Light.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Pours yellow with small white head. The aroma is grainy with some light fruit notes. Flavor is thin and metallic with some faint citrus and husk notes. Not great.
