Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2014
Draft: Light gold with a foamy white head. Grain malt aroma...fairly sweet. Taste is light barley, smooth and fairly well-bodied for such a light beer. Very good.

Draft. Creamy barley malt aroma. Pale yellow with small head. Creamy barley malt and hay flavor. Light body. Pretty good for a low alcohol - would rather have this than any other light beers.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Half liter at the brewery, thanks to Andrew. Clear golden color.Thin white head. Couple ropes and splotches of lace. Good head retention. Lighter body. Kind of a light bite in the texture. Sort of smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Taste is a lot worse than expected. Very much like a coors light or something. Moderate bitter, big bite in the finish. Not much aroma to speak of, wet bread, lightly peppery. Mostly watery with a totally unnecessary bite. Like sex in a canoe. Not good at all, very sub par for a bavarian style lager. Par for the course for a cheap macro-lager that’s probably sat around for a bit.

On draft at HBH. Looks decent; light with good head and carbonation. Smells nice and wheat. Tastes okay, which is good for a light beer. Not bad.

on tap-pours a white head with trailing lace and clear/pale yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain/corn. Taste is sweet grain/corn, secondary spice hops. Nice for a light.

On tap: it doesn’t do much for me with aromas, but it suprisingly has some good flavors going in with some grassy notes. Tasty, but they have much better available.

Lite? Not a Miller product! And listed "Light" at the brauhaus. Anyway, not much love for this one from RB so far. Pours a clear yellow-gold with a small white head in my gigantic dimpled glass mug. The aroma is pretty faint, with some pale malts, grass, and cracker notes. The flavor, however, is nice- straw, pale malts, crackers, and a little bit of a grassy hop note but really subtle. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and medium-high carbonation. Pretty solid.

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Pale yellow with creamy white head and lace. Very light malt and paper on the aroma. Light semi-sweet malt and some surprising bitter. Thin and watery. Decent beer for the style.

On tap at Hofbrauhaus Newport, March 2010. Just what you would expect. A lighter version of the lager. Both in colour and flavour. Not really a lot else to say. Inoffensive if bland.
