COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The lightest beer in color and body in our lineup. Southern Flyer Light Lager is a refreshing beer and a true American lager. Liberty hops add to its all-around great taste.

Tap, EPCOT, 3/04. Why do brewpubs insist on making light beers? Unoffensive, very pale clear yellow. No aroma...well, maybe soggy white bread. Strong, raw barley flavor. Wet. Great lacing. I've certainly had worse, no flavor is better than bad flavor.

Bland aroma and flavor, hops are weak and the malt is lightly toasty but barely present. Light beer means light body & lower alcohol, not less flavor, get it right.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Draft... Brewed to imitate Michelob Ultra and other low carb beers. They did a good job. Flavorless and aromaless with the exception of some very light honey notes. Perfectly balanced, but that’s not saying much regarding a beer with so little malt to balance out. Tastes like an N/A. Much like having sex in a canoe, this beer is fucking way too close to water.

Ok light but I do not like lights.light and clear with not much head. No aroma and the flavor is of some malt but not much hops.

hotstuff (4285) - Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Draft-Big River Brewery-Chattanooga, TN. A small sized white head with fine sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The nose was that of light malt and mild hops with a malty and hoppy flavor. The mouthfeel was somewhat tingly and smooth and it was light bodied with fair lacing.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 6. This draft brew was enjoyed at the Big River Brewery in Chattanooga Tennessee which was hosted by a pleasant accomodating staff. The manager paid for our samples and even bought us appetizers to help clear our palates. This brew poured a large head of finely sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent uncarbonated weak yellow colored body and a fair lace. The aroma was very mild and mildly hopped. The mouthfeel was smooth, slightly tingly and had a mild hop finish to it. It was suprisingly nice for a 2.9% ABV light. The flavor was nice with notes of malt and hops. Very smooth.

Pours a light gold with a thin white head. No lacing. Aroma is hoppy. Typical of a light beer. This is good for a light, but still not good for a beer.

yuck. adjuncty, fruity, there's nothing right about this. by bjcp I suppose all this fits under the crappy definition but this is bad. fizzy and bland. a beer only a coors light lover could love

Real light yellow colour, looks like pee with a thin-white head. A bit of malt and metal in the aroma. Light-bodied; Some malt in the flavour, but not much. Overall, not great, but better than some other lights. I had this on draught at Big River (owned by Gordon Biercsh) in Chattanooga, Tennesse on 26-September-2003.

Very light and clear with not much head. No aroma and the flavor is of some malt but not much hops. Really light.
