2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft... Clear, light yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The nose is a touch grainy, but mostly nondeScript. Regarding flavor, there’s just not much there. Tastes much like any light lager brewed up and spit out by B, M or C. Weird hop combination. Light-bodied and a bit creamy with medium carbonation. Thin, watery finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on tap on 7/15/06: Pours a transparent golden with a thin ring of white head. Fruity noble hoppy aroma is quite refreshing for a light beer. Body starts thin, but has a touch of malty sweetness before revealing more grainy flavor. Not that great, but pretty good for the style.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pint at the District Chophouse; ridiculously light in color but there’s a nice smooth malty biscuity-ness to this; I sense this is almost Koelschy! Pretty enjoyable light beer, I must say. (#2779, 4/7/2007)

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap, DC location, 2006 RBSG pubcrawl. Pours a pale yellow with a small fizzy white head that settled to a thin film. Moderate fine visible carbonation. Aroma is of very light crystal malt and light corn. Flavor is pretty minimal, but certainly not offensive like many brewpub Lights. Mouthfeel is thin with fizzy carbonation. Overall, about what you’d expect, watery and weak, but at least it was drinkable.
