purchased in a sample pack. pours a very light yellow with little head. scent is of wheat and corn. taste is of almost nothing, but there are faint hints of corn, barley, and some hops. They dont lie - it is a very smooth beer, but why wouldnt it be? Its a light beer.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is was a corn malt and very metallic. The taste is as bad as the aroma. Total opposite of the commercial description.

The aroma is faint with some corn malt. The appearance is straw gold with a thin head. The flavor is like the aroma and metallic. The palate is surprisingly smooth for a light. As light beers go this is certainly drinkable but it hardly has much tastes save a slight metallic bitterness and corn. Must be the spring water!

Sour...lemony corn. Clear light yellow and lightly carbonated. Bland with hints of corn flavor. Thin like water. I will probably never drink this again.

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 (6972) - 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 (5269) - 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 (2879) - 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 Id take a Coors Light or Michelob Ultra before this. I want a light beer flavorless and crisp. This wasnt that.

cheap (4171) - Beaver Valley, 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 Ive 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.
