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.

On tap at Rock Bottom Charlotte. Typically crappy light beer, with nothing really redeeming about it at all.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2008
On tap at Big River – Chattanooga. Poured clear bright golden with a light dusting of white head. The aroma was light and sweet with bready and honey notes.. just a little dusty floral as an accent. The flavor wasn’t so hot.. cardboard joined honey and pale malt sweetness at the core.. weak and watery with not much going on. Light-bodied with too much carbonation and a dry finish. Drinkable, but meh.

On tap at Disney’s Boardwalk. Clear pale yellowish pour. Faint malty aroma. Crisp smooth slightly malty taste. Forgot it as soon as I finished it.

Wildly popular but not a great Big River beer. I am surprised it has rated so low despite it’s popularity but that makes me think that us at ratebeer know wheat we’re talking about and have some consensus! In the Sam Adams style but lighter on the malt appealing to the masses.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Draft in Jacksonville. Nice toasted grain aroma, sweet malt notes. The body is a transparent yellow/gold color and holds a diminishing, wispy white head. Fore holds malt/grain and light toasted cereal/malt notes. Lightly hopped. It really is smooth and easy to drink just as I assume they were aiming for.
