1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Wow, a light lager! It tastes like Grain Belt Premium, except lighter somehow. Pale yellow, no real scent, watery. Not offensive, but not good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pint at restaurant. Yellow color, tall head that sticks around more than most lagers. No skunkiness, which is key for me and lagers. A little smoother and thicker. Taste is mild, but as expected for this type. All around, I though this was okay and would have again in the right circumstance.

Pretty light. Not too great. Grassy and not much better than the big commercial beer the description compares it to.

Served on draft at the brewpub, 1/8/11. Pours a very pale yellow with nearly no head. What’s there fades quickly. Faint grainy aroma. The taste is grassy hops, grain and a sweet malty finish. Thin body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: On tap at the Brew Pub, 9/5/09
Aroma: Grain, light fruit, apple/pear, straw
Appearance: Clear blonde color, very light
Flavor: Light flavor, but tasty, good fruity/grainy character, and mild hop character as well
Palate: Clean and thin, light body
This beer was OK, had a decent amount of flavor for the style, my qualm with it would be that I found it to be thin and light, but other then that it was pretty decent, not a great beer, but drinkable.
