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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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?

Pours to a thin golden body. The flavor is mineral water, lots of sulfides and hints of chlorine. Ever so light Saaz? hops The aroma is lightly Saaz-ish hops. In-offensive and overly unexciting. The palate is medium-light and minerally.

Iíve avoided this a while and it probably should have stayed that way. Pale yellow, very thin creamy head. Tastes like well water. Light corn, grain. Light, but not offensive. Actually, would be a decent beer if you want "a beer" but donít want anything heavy.

Ugh. Golden yellow. Tastes like cereal. Horrid taste. Very odd metallic after taste. This was really not worth trying. It was wet. It didnít have any hops or anything.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Looks like water with a dash of yellow food coloring. Big, thin center splotch of white for the head. Pale lager aroma with yeast and lemons leading the way. Taste affirms my suspicions that this is their Miller Lite clone. Crisp, light, yeasty and a hint of lemons. Light, bready, tingly finish.
