COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Mild Ale brewed with Horizon hops. The crisp, bitter finish is held up by a balanced malt body.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2007 on tap at the Alchemist. Aroma is resiny floral/citrus hops. Taste has alot of hop character, floral sticky hops with a very impressive malt backbone considering how low in alcohol it is. Finishes bitter. excellent, I would have never guessed this was under 5 percent, let alone under 4.

Clear golden-yellow body topped by a small white head. Impressively tasty beer given its low 3.4% abv. You’d never guess. Full body with plenty of cereals. To me its most striking feature is how grassy it was. Lots of grass/hay/straw flavour. Nice grassy bitterness. Kind of pilsner-ish overall. Probably the best below 4% I’ve ever had. Plus just think how much fun you’ll have to answer “what are you drinking?” with a dry tone of voice.

TaktikMTL (5706) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2007
En fût. Verre dégusté à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur d’houblon. Apparence: La couleur est blonde pâle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût d’houblon herbacé. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps et la texture sont mince. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’houblon en arrière goût. (Rating #976)

My Bottom Line:
This characterful Mild Ale generously serves up the resinous and grassy luxury of Horizon hops onto as many lofty cereals as you can imagine a 3.4% abv beer to have. Flavorful, absurdly drinkable, this low gravity ale is yet another testament to John Kimmich’s immense talent.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head settles atop the golden translucence.
-The resinous hop bitterness is lengthy and succulent.
-The hay-like grain balances out the expressive hoppiness, and amazingly avoids watery characterizations for such a low gravity ale.
-I found this to be even better than their regular light offering, Light Weight.
-Do you think this beer’s name is a wry comment aimed at those who believe a craft beer has to be immense to be flavorful?

On tap at the brewpub.
