2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Typical North German/Dutch lager, with slight skunk/rubberband aroma. Crisp taste, not so much skunk, and light palate. Heineken is better on draft, but I have never tried Heinie Light so maybe that would be a better comparison.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(12 oz bottle: Obtained 06-May-06 in trade with Otter, thanks Jeremy!) Not really a light beer such as what the BMCs out there make -- it has more flavor than that -- but the problem is the flavor isnít enjoyable. Cheap-tasting, mildly sweet graininess and a hint of bitterness up front, but while the beer canít even attain mediocrity, it degrades into an awful cardboard finish. Smells like a cheap lager with cardboard but no skunk. Light-bodied and mildly carbonated, this certainly has a lot more body than the typical light beer, but the stale mouthfeel makes me want to have my tongue scraped. Medium-straw in color with slight haziness. Smallish, white head fades to a tiny ring. Itís really a mystery to me why a craft brewery would produce swill like this. Must a "light" beer taste bad? This is just not an enjoyable beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Why do craft brewers make and bottle light beers? Drinkable, but has a harsh aftertaste. Similar to most lights.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Crystal clear golden colour with a darker golden tint and a nice frothy white head. Tons of small bubbles run from the bottom nicely. Seriously, not a bad looking beer at all! Aroma of just about nothing; Some caster sugar, some pale malt and little else. No hops to speak of either. Light-bodied; Super sweet fake taste of caster sugar, aspartame and saccharin. No good qualities at all in the taste. Very watery and almost still in the mouth. Aftertaste shows the bad fake sugars and some slight vegetable tastes. Overall, not a good beer at all, but that was to be expected! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 08-September-2004.

On tap at Rams Head Tavern. Poured a light yellow with no head. Watery and flat tasting. Nothing really to say other than it is a light beer (if it didnít come with the sampler, I wouldnít have ordered it).
