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.

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

jgb9348 (4488) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2003
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.

Shag (2559) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2003
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.

aracauna (2994) - Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2003
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.

My least favorite offering from this establishment. Obviously brewed for the Bud drinking masses. Quite bland and boring. The bartender said that this was their best seller.

Sampled at the brewpub at Walt Disney World's Boardwalk. Corn flavor and aroma. Much more flavorful than Bud Light. Actually a quite decent light beer.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Part of a sampler: Pours a light gold with a thin white head. No lacing. Light hops aroma. Light bodied, with the typical brewpub "light lager" taste. Minimal hops flavor and somewhat fizzy. Light and crisp finish. Okay for what it is.
