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.

heemer77 (5234) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 8, 2008
On tap at the Hamilton Place location. The body was deep yellow with a white head. The aroma was meaty with some grass notes. There was also some bread. The taste was light bread crust with some beets. Good for the style.

DKTN (110) - Mc Donald, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Draft. Pours light gold with a white head. Hop and malt aroma and flavor. Light bodied with a clean finish. I would drink this over a macro anytime.

biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2008
On tap at Rock Bottom Charlotte. Typically crappy light beer, with nothing really redeeming about it at all.

Ughsmash (7501) - 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.

dchmela (2971) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2008
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.

DrPiva (96) - Alabama, USA - DEC 18, 2007
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.
