2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draught at the downtown brewpub location. Pours a clear light straw colored brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates clean. Aroma of light golden grain malt, a touch of citrus zest and a wee bit of corn. Taste is light bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt and light citrus zest. Finish is light, crisp, clean cut with no aftertaste. Light Beer is was it is. Nothing more. At least it can keep the diet Miller and Diet Bud drinkers happy in a craft brewpub.

I was a little dissapointed with this beer. Going into it with an open mind, i was ready to judge according to the style, but it tasted too bland and watery. Clear straw yellow colour, no head. Grainy taste, aroma is bland of corn and sawdust.

On tap at the Great Dane Brew Pub (Downtown Madison Location). Poured a light and cleary yellow color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas and tastes of watery grassiness and grainy. Hey, its a Pale Lager....

Chicago Trip. Sunday 20:20. Sample tray. Pale yellow. Thin but creamy head. Hint of lemon in the aroma. Hint of lemon in the taste as well. I don’t think that the lemon from the Hefe touched the glass. Not much else to say about the first sample.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at GD - Madison. Poured a very bright golden with just a dusting of white head. The aroma was quite faint, but pleasant... pale malts with some floral accents.. rather kolsh-ey.. opened up some with warmth. Flavor found moderately sweet pale malts with a pinch of honey.. mild floral bitterness and some light veggie notes. Light and crisp on the palate with decent balance.. too watery at times. OK for what it is.

Draft at the brewpub. Clear golden color with a thin white head that reduced rapidly and left only minimal lace. Smelled of wet stone and a bit of salt. Fresh cereal grain flavor that lingers. Light body. Crisp and dry without any hop bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear very pale yellow; almost no color at all. Medium white head that leaves some decent lacing. No aroma to speak of save a wisp of sour-grass. Quite a lot of flavor for a light beer, but not a particularly great flavor. Strange grassy flavor with a hint of grain and light hop spice and bitternes. Thin watery palate. About as much as one can expect from a light beer.

(Tap) Pours golden with a small white head. More taste and body compared to a macro, but definitely nothing special. Grainy, but nothing offensive. Nice to try, but probably my least favorite Great Dane brew.

Man these guys have done the impossible by actually reproducing a Miller Lite in a brewpub. Thin, watery with the same chemically thin head. Absolutley no hint of malt or hops. Incredible! Question is ...WHY?
