On tap at BJs restaurant Kissimee, FL. Pours pale golden brown, medium white head, medium carbonation. Aroma of hay, citrus. This is a flavorful light beer, one of the best light beers that I have had.

phaleslu (7650) - 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.

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.

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.

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.

hotstuff (4408) - Indiana, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Rated on 02-20-2013 at BJís in Jacksonville, FL. The appearance of this draft beer is a very small white head that mostly diminishes, pale yellow transparent body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is malt, grainy and light hops. The flavor is malt, grainy, light hops, and crisp. The mouthfeel is smooth and clean. This beer is medium bodied. This is a lawnmower beer with sparse character.

Draft sample at Cincy location. Pours a clear yellow golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy, corn malts, some crackers, light herbal hops, pretty boring and not worth The effort.

"Light all around as expected. Slightly fruity and grainy aroma and flavor. I like the hops in here but they donít come through much. For this particular style, and only this style, not bad. Especially in the summer. But really nothin special either. "
