2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Spiced lemon, pepper, grain and corn aroma, typical for a lager but a little better than most. Clear light yellow appearance. Initial flavor is soapy, and the body is very smooth but seriously lacks any flavor, other than a mild lemon and wheat finish. Can?t say it?s bad, it just doesn?t taste like anything.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, fully diminishing. Body
is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy
(herbs), with a note of solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly
bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to
medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Disgusting macro lager
clone and just as unpleasant. This is further proof of two things: (1)
you donít need to use adjuncts to make a bad beer, and (2) nothing says
ísell outí from a microbrewery like making an American Standard/Light.
Isnít the Buffalo Gold they brew for Walnut flavorless enough for the
masses!? íNo, we need more plastic aroma and chemical aftertaste in our
own creation!í Arrgh.

The aroma is just like apple cider with corn and a very light hopping. The appearance is milky pale gold with a tiny head. The flavor is also like apple cider with corn. The palate is watery. This has to be stale the bottle says the brewer was Rockies Brewing Company, no one would sell something like this fresh.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2003 Nice head; clear golden. Crisp and effervescent up front. Toasted bread malt flavors. Pretty thick-bodied for a "light lager." Very little hop flavors/aromas/bitterness. Just a nip of "burnt" bitterness in the aftertaste. I might take it over some other light lagers, but it is rather boring.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp and a tad sourish in an unusual sort of way. A touch herbal, almost as if itís a wheat thatís spiced with coriander. Very watery and light, but the malt has flavor. Nicely done for a light beer.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
The prototypical lager/pils light golden yellow color on the pour, head small and bright white, and lace adequate. Nose typical lager malt, start sweet, top cadaverous, finish watery, mildly acidic, sparsely hopped, dry and totally forgettable.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bright pale gold with white fading head (Bubbly and artificial looking). Light musty and bready aroma. No malt upfront, strong unpleasant bitterness wells up quickly. Lingering taste is a flat bitterness. Further analysis reveals a tinge of corn-like sweetness. Frankly, for an American Light, I'd just as soon have Miller Lite or Bud Light, and at half the price (not that I'd enjoy any of these three).

Pale golden color,small white head that faded quite quickly.Very corny flavor with a mild malt flavor and even milder hops presence.Theres nothing special about this brew other then it's worth trying atleast once.

I know , I know. This is a light worthless, hop lacking waste of H2O. It is an insult to the micro-brewing movement. That being said, I was at the brewery with my mother who only drinks Labbat Blue light. She truly enjoyed this beer. I tried a couple sips and as far as light crap goes, this is the best I've sampled.
