3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pale golden color with a compact white head with fair retention. Minimal lacing. Light hops and nuts in the aroma. Light body with a clean mouthfeel, and mild but flavorful hops taste. There is a bit of grass and malt in there too. The finish is effervescent and lightly bitter. Pretty good for the style.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice bready aroma. Clear, medium light yellow gold with no head. Initially a lightly candied, slight citrus presentation, then it rounds out to a medium light bittering. Medium mouth -- not too fizzy. Initial finish is sweet, then a lingering bitterness. Fair. Good for a brewpub light lager offering.

Pours a slightly hazy bubbly gold color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is kinda sweet maltiness but no real distinguishing characteristics. Flavor is light and crisp with a nice slight hop bitterness. Sweet flavor. Overall, damn good pale lager.

On Tap, Church Brew Works
Poured Golden. Bubbly white head. Aroma barely present, but I got hints of grains and malt. Flavor is light. Notes of malt, but nothing that was overpowering. Thin to medium bodied. Smooth and easily drinkable. Good for a hot night.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle, via CMUBEERMAN. Pours a light gold with a small fizzy white head that retracted to a thin film quickly. Aroma is packed with a corn scent, minimal grainy pale malt, and a little garbage juice. Very light in flavor as well, with zero hop bitterness, minimal malt, and lots of corn on the finish. Mouthfeel is thin and fizzy as expected, maybe a 4 or 5 if rated "to style" of a Pale Lager, but I guess I don’t. Overall, not really sure why a small craft brewery/brewpub would bottle this. Who’d pay craft prices for Coor’s Light quality.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A hazy, glowing gold pour with a small white head. The aroma is crisp, clean and corny. Some hops and lemon in there too. Thin-bodied. A good bit of carbonation. Tastes like it smells. Some sweet corny, grainy tastes upfront. A crisp, clean, slightly dry and bitter finish with hints of hops and lemons. Quite refreshing and poundable.

This beer is very crisp and clean! Had a sample at brewery and took home 6...
There’s a little sweetness that is very interesting and even floral? A very straight forward brew worthy of another taste...

I thought this was a decent pale lager. Very smooth and crisp, good carbonation. Slight malt flavor, well balanced with the hint of hops. Would be a great summer brew.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin head that has to fight to form. Reduces quickly to nothing. Low carbonation. Light malts, corn flakes, little floral and a little lavender. Color is a light gold. Flavor is soft with a little malt and hops. Light hops bitterness at the finish and a little dry. A decent pale lager but nothing special.

A pretty good pale lager. Yellow-gold clear with thin head. Medium soft body with light carbonation. Light sweet taste, low acidity, with decent hops in the finish. Overall a little watery.
