Bottle. Sour corn aroma. Pale yellow. Pretty flavorless but unoffensive. Nothing particularly noteworthy.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle courtesy of soonah. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Smells of oranges, caramel, perfume. Tastes watery with some lemony touches.

DuffMan (6438) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 8, 2008
Very pale straw colour, brief head, no lace. Bready sweet aroma. Very watery thin with almost no flavour. Almost like a non-alcoholic beer, but not as cidery.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Sampled at ABR 07 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pours a clear straw, almost clear water brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates clean. Aroma is just barely a light bread malt and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is thin as newsprint, light bodied, well-carbonated with hardly any flavor. Finish is slightly gritty, clean cut and no aftertaste. Though this brew is not offensive, I prefer bottled water over this.

LinusStick (2814) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Not a very good light beer. Aroma was nil. Smelled like metal. Pour was as light bubbly gold with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was very metallic. Somewhat too sweet for a light beer. People groan when I say this but I’d take a Coors Light or Michelob Ultra before this. I want a light beer flavorless and crisp. This wasn’t that.

cheap (3940) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Twist off cap from a short brown 12 oz stubby bottle. Dirty old water smell, but in a good way. Surprizingly, slightly hazy pale yellow appearance.Looks somewhat like many wheat beers I’ve tried. Wet eldridge straw flavor and palate. Cannot detect much bitterness in the nearly industrial flavor. Amicable carbonation. A background cardboard hint that is remenicent of Coors Gold or N/A. Finish is rather mild and well behaved. Unique washed out aftertaste. Overall, one of the more interesting pale lagers.

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2007
12oz bottle-A golden body with a small head that dissipated into nothing. Aroma of nothing. A light mouthful that begins with nothing and ends with a slight spice on the back end. Really nothing to this beer except I thought it was very smooth.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2007
ABR 2007. Grainy body and body without much going on. A little harsh on the finish.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Pour is ginger ale yellow-ish and highly, highly carbonated. The small ring of bubbles that was supposed to be head faded fast. Aroma is of pale, weak hops. Flavor is all you can expect from a light beer, mostly water, and high carbonation. Very very disappointing.

The only bad thing in the party pack. Light beer with earthy flavor......dirt ?. This has to be one of my least favorite light beers
