A clear pale yellow with an appropriate head. Cereal malty aroma with some noble hops evident. Clean, crisp flavor. Not bad.

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-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.

Light lager nose, pale yellow color, sticky white head. Grainy, barley taste - very full for a light beer. Clean and crisp with a dainty bitter tinge to round things off. Thin, quick and refreshing, but classy. Maybe too reserved, but classy nonetheless for a light beer.

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.

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.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - 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.

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.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2003
This beer is created so that the American Macro fans can have something to rave about. Very light in color, white head, little flavor, I thought I was drinking a Miller Lite there for a minute. Not much for the RB drinker!

The house light beer. Sampled just to see how light it really was. Well, it was really light.
