A NEW recipe for 2006. This beer is the answer to the perennial question "What’s the lightest beer you have on tap?" Straw-colored and mildly hopped, it will be "all that" come summertime when it finally warms up arouond these parts. But you can enjoy it now.

Draft at the Burien pub. Pours crystal clear gold with no head and no lace. Muddied nose, mainly yeast and bread. Tingly carb and spicy hop in the mid-palate. Saazy, peppery hop spice in the finish. Kinda nice.

onceblind (6172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear golden under a thin white head. Malty golden cereal nose with a light grassy German hop nose. Flavor is cerealish with a slightly belgianish yeast tone. Like a Belgo pilsner.

riversideAK (5830) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Kind of bready, biscuity, and a little buttery in the aroma. Golden yellow pour. Grainy, biscuity. Clean finish with some light hoppy bitterness. Did not do much for me, the sample I had might have been a tad messed up, because everyone else seemed to like this one.

BuckeyeBoy (4068) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 5, 2009

BillKismet (3605) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Blonde-bronze with small head. Looks a bit more vibrant than the typical pale lager. Crisp aroma pungent with Saaz, about my least favorite hop. Flavor is also crisp with Saaz emphasized. Slight sourdough-bitter hop finish.

This is a very piss poor light beer. Something for the macro crowd. Not even a good gateway beer.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Draft @ Elliot Bay. Clear golden yellow with a tiny white head. Aroma is light malt, hay, doughy yeast and light fruit. Flavor is light malt with some fruity esters and very mild bitterness. Light body and a crisp finish. Pretty good for the style, light and no real flaws.
