"an easy drinker no doubt, but that’s not enough to get a good rating. a little lacking in flavor...as much due to the style as GB brewing, but I’ve found many of their brews to be on the boring side."

Transfer from BA review on 12-27-13-
Served on tap in a pilsner glass
Appearance – Served a clear golden colored brew with a two finger pure white head of foam. The head faded slowly over time to leave a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew was slightly grainy with a moderately bready base. Along with these aromas were some lighter aromas of caramel and corn and a bit of grass.
Taste – The taste begins with a slightly grainy and bready taste along with a little bit of a corn malt flavor. As the taste advances some sweetness of a caramel nature comes to the tongue. Along with this, a grassy hop taste and a little bit of herb come to the tongue. With an increase in the grain, a decrease in the sweeter flavors and a little bit of a cracker flavor coming to the tongue at the end of the taste, one is left with a crisp and slightly drier malt flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the lighter side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that was on the slightly higher side. Both are rather nice for the style and make for a very easy drinking, crisp, and refreshing beer.
Overall – A decent lager with a very easy drinking taste and feel. Nothing outstanding but rather crisp and refreshing.

Light beer usually tastes like dishwater, but this would be refreshing on a hot summer day.

Not bad with a good crisp Batley note. I suspect it won’t get much better than this at the brewery taster flight. Tap.
