Extremely clear yellow with a thin head. Surprisingly good malt character for a "light", but it fits the category. Sweet and light in body, but good.

BeerandBlues2 (9697) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Draught at brewpub. Pours sparkling light yellow with a spare, frothy white head, mostly lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, hay, straw), light hops (grass), average yeast (dough) with notes of dust. Light bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation and a chalky finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness. One of the better pale lagers I have had.

Tap at brewpub. Pours clear pale yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma is cereal malts, light corn, faint toast, and light grassiness. Flavor is mostly dry malts with light grassy and floral notes; crisp dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Had this at the brewery. Poured a clear, light-yellow color with a small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing head and nice lacing. The aroma was lightly malty with toasted grain and unpleasant with a miscellaneous odor of cooked corn. Definitely could pass for a macro. The flavor was lightly sweet with an average-length lightly bitter finish. The body was light, the texture was watery and the carbonation was fizzy. I guess this is what it’s supposed to be ... but is that a good reason for boring beer? ;)

Ratman197 (9808) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2008
On tap @ Dillon Dam poured a clear pale yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of light bread and a faint hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, light straw and a faint hint of spice with a smooth dry finish.

3fourths (8032) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Light yellow and clear. Light nose, flavor and body are really a big surprise... flavor is grainy and coarse but hardly notcable... sweet light malts. Fizzy, tasteless, odorless, I guess.

Tasted 9/30 Dillon Dam Brewery, GABF weekend. Golden hue. Mild hop nose with a hint of grapefruit. Musty and watery. Well, I would think that this is a perfect example of this style, but I just don’t know. Not at all impressed with this brewery.
