0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Had as part of their beer sampler. Pretty typical light beer. Better than a Bud, but not a whole lot. Worth trying once and only once. Light yellow, smells of slight malt or grain. Taste is very watery.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straw colour. Slightly grainy nose with a hint of pale malt. Fairly sweet palate with fresh grain. Quick, slightly watery finish. OK for what it is.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampler. Pours clear, yellow, thin fizzy white head. Aroma of your standard American Light Lager. Aroma of malt, hints of corn. Flavor is all malt. A bit of sweetness in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear pale golden with a one finger mostly lasting white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of light sweet malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Good.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale yellow pour with almost no head. Pretty standard American pale lager with minimal flavor, and a slightly souring aftertaste. It seemed a little flat this time, but I remember it being more carbonated in the past. Nothing really remarkable except that for a light beer, it still has a decent ABV, instead of the 3.2 to 4.2 you get with most of them.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draft... Clear straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is grainy with mild notes of spent mash and ethanal. Sweet, grainy flavor. Almost medium-bodied and lightly creamy with medium carbonation. Sweet, grainy, boiled mash finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Delicate citrusy, herbal hops precede a surprisingly lascive cereal return. A well-crafted lager for the brewpub’s "American Light" replacement? Kudos to them!
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A clinging veil of foam covers the commercial golden clarity.
-Body is well-malted, though somewhat not helped by the fizzy carbonation.
-The spicy hops develop an intricate nose.
-This has to have improved since the first raters tried it.
On tap at the brewpub.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pale yellow. Strong disturbing vegetable aroma. Sweet, fruity and light bodied. No bitterness. Why does a good brewpub bother to make a poor imitation of macroswill?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A little doughy, mildly sweet, mild lemony flavors, went a bit vacant at times. Medium body. Medium bittering and a clear light sweetness. Gnereic light lager aoma. Decent for a brewpub light.
