On tap at the brewpub. It is a typical light beer. Not much going on. Lots of grain. I would put it up there with any other light beer. Refreshing.

on tap-pours a white head and yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain. Taste is light body, sweet grain, secondary hops-lemon.

Bottle. So this is the last part of a slummin’ with light beers night. Pour is a little darker (yellow) than the previous ratings, but head is virtually nonexistent. Aromas are a robust mix of straw and grain (well, by robustI mean for the company this keeps.) Flavor is an annoyingly sweet mix of malt and straw... not even grass, but that sweet and obnoxious smell you get from an old bale of slightly wet straw. Still, in comparison with some of its AB peers, this is a best in class for the night. I won’t be back ever again, but my Abita Light experience wasn’t completely awful.

Pours a light golden yellow color. Aromas of straw/grains. Not much else. No body, watery. My (Miller Lite Loving) friends I was having lunch with loved it.

Pale gold pour with a thin white head. Smells grainy, tastes grainy and watery, slightly skunky.

Really thought this would be better than the ABC light beers. It wasn’t. Absolutely terrible.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Not much for light beers. This pours a bright golden colour with a moderately sized white head. Light in malty character, well balanced, soft hop character in the finish.

EithCubes (5247) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Bottle. Funky, skunky, footy nose that reminds of runny hot dog water. Dusty and grainy. Sickly yellow body with an off-white head. Taste is nasty, grainy and unregulated mash with a bit of metal and plastic. Cereal and mineral water with a light body. Cardboard and corny sweetness. Man! Nasty.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2008
12oz bottle. Smelled of corn syrup and mixed cereal grains. Poured a pale golden color. The head was fizzy, white, and reduced over a minute or so to a thin film. Light bodied and delicately sweet. Tasted distinctly of unsalted corn chips, especially toward the end. This might be better if you poured some salsa in it. Eh.

This is a very generic light beer with a slight sweet berry flavor to it. It is refreshing and goes down easy, but otherwise there is nothing special about it...very generic.
