3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (12oz). Via trade with Zatrhus12. Slightly hazy gold, some bubbles at first, lasting frothy/foamy white head. Aroma has light citrus, grassy hops, very soft. Taste is oddly ferric - like it’s made with hard water, canola-like grain, herbal/grassy hops, the grain seems a little sour, but not in a bad way, just ... acidic, somehow. Chewy body, on the light side, it has a hint of astirngency and very light carbonation - the finish takes its time, but isn’t all that long in the end - quite well balanced for a "light" - excuse me, "lite" beer, too good to be a lawnmower beer.

Easy drinking light yellow coloured beer. Grain and citric acid hops in the faint aroma. Cereal taste with some lemon. Good malt in the flavour as well. tasty yet light.

For a light beer and lager this is a fantastic version. It is clean and has nice notes of hops and fruit (lemonish). The mouthfeel is very dense for a lkight beer but yet holds the crispness. Excllent beer.

Hazy gold out of the bottle with a frothy white head. Clean nose of light grain and lemon. Very flavorful lager with lots of biscuit and cereal grains, with a lemon tartness and light grassiness in the finish. A very nice craft lager and a beer I’d drink more of if available here. Thanks to zathrus13 for the bottle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of grain, cereal, lightly fruity, and a pinch of spices. Interesting aroma that, for me, teetered between enjoyable and not so good. Tastes of a general fruitiness, spices, and had a grassy finish. Fizzy and thin body.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2007 Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is hops, malt, and some spices. Flavor is hops, spices, grass, and malt. Heavier body than expected. A really good light beer...probably the best light beer I’ve ever had.

Thanks to Clark VV for sending me this bottle. Pours cloudy yellow/gold with a tall white head. If I didn’t know this were supposed to be a light lager I would say it was a belgian wit beer by the look and smell. Very floral spiced nose that reminds me of the t’ij beers. Flavor is much more mild, here is where this beer lacks a bit, but for a light beer it still fricken rocks. Dry earthy hop flavor, very clean lager base but with that fruity belgian esters gives this a really unique flavor. As I sip I catch glimpses of Orval, but not as dry and herbal tasting. What is even stranger is my description of this beer isn’t even close to any of the others below, maybe this bottle was slightly infected, turned out nice though.

For a light beer this brew is HEAVY! Full flavored, amber/orange in color and has a very obvious hop flavor. Last I checked light beers were yellow and tased like water. This is THE craft beer for every hot summer day. It’s a win/win beer. Stock up for the summer!!
