1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2003 Better than your typical light lager. Decent head with a golden appearance. Flavor is smooth with no hops present and some malt. No reason to go after this considering the other quality beers this brewery offers. A good light summer beer. Head of the class in a class full of students on the small bus.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Surprising bit of malt flavor. The color is extremely pale, but the head has a great bit of fullness and retention which saves the appearance score. No hops as expected, Slightly citric nose. For a light lager, this is good.
