COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flavorful alternative with even fewer calories than many popular domestic light beers. BJís LightSwitch Lager has a pleasant malt flavor balanced by a clean, dry finish with the handcrafted quality you have come to expect from BJís Restaurant and Brewhouse.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6723) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized creamy white head that faded quickly and left good lacing. The aroma was faintly tangy and sweet with a touch of sour mash. The flavor was tangy and sweet with hints of fruit and hot pepper. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh

4-5 oz pour on draft at BJís (Gainesville, VA location) with a Mustang Sally yelling DCLawyer. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, floral notes, hay. Tastes of wheat, citrus, floral notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

kramer (5827) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Pale straw body, minimal fizzy head that vanished completely. Minimal nose, grainy and corn-laced. Flavor isnít much better, minimal malt, no hops, bud light clone. Light bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Meh, ok I guess, but not a beer geekís dream.

Draught at BJ:s Restaurant and Brewhouse, Brea. Clear pale golden beer with a decent offwhite head. Thin bready hop aroma, grassy, hay, spicy notes. Hoppy spicy flavor, grassy, bread, herbal, some citrus. Peppery finish with hay and bread. Thin but ok.

phaleslu (9380) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Draft served in a flight at the local brewpub. Pours a barely cloudy yellow gold - just slightly fainter than the Blonde and Hefeweizen - with a small white head that settles into a ring while leaving ropes of lace. Notes of bready and pale malts, banana chips, fruity esters, minerals, and saltines. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Not bad, actually. Better than the Blonde and Hefe.

GreatDane1632 (1168) - North Dakota, USA - APR 30, 2015
Had at their brewpub in San Antonio. This may have been my favorite of all of their beers, which makes sense because I thought they were all thin and watery, which fits this style.

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Keg at BJs, Gainesville, VA. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a thin creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grassy hops and pale malt. The taste is doughy malt with a grassy hop finish. Thin bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Very light lager... Not sure why anyone would brew this as a mainstay beer on their rotation but there just isnít much flavor at all.

Mild hay aroma. Clear yellow, thin head, nice lacing. Hay and grass flavor. Light body. Pretty good flavor and intensity from a light beer.
