COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light American Lager is brewed with a combination of domestic 6-row barley, corn, and a touch of hops from the Pacific Northwest. The pale straw appearance deceives the consumer as it presents a malty sweet background, with a crisp flavorful tone. Highly carbonated and light in body, this product lends itself to a highly thirst quenching profile. Hop variety: Galena and Mount Hood Hops OG: 8.5 Plato IBUs: 6 Color: 1.9 SRM

Butters (3733) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Sampled on draft with maniac and maltdawg thanks to sterling. Pours a clear light yellow pour and decent ring of off white head. Nose of sweet grain iis actually not offensuve. Flavor is semi sweet and corny. Simple easy drinking session beer. I was surprised

nimbleprop (4594) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Sampled at the DC Local tasting. Pours crystal clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Someone at the tasting remarked, "smells like rotting apples." I thought it smelled like a moldy beehive. Flavor is lightly sweet, stale grass, pears. Watery finish. Tastes a lot better than it smells.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle shared by argo0: Pours a pale watery golden with a thin ring of white head. Has a bland grassy sugar corn nose. Starts with a light pale malty sweetness and some bland earthy hops before a very thin finish. Not much going on here, but it is drinkable at least.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin fizzy head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of corn, corn and more corn with a bit of toasty malts and grass. Taste is more prominent grassy notes with more corn. Balanced a bit better this time. A little acridity creeps in the finish. Thin-medium bodied. Decent for a light lager.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Serving: Draft. Appearance: Pale straw yellow with a foamy, white head. Aroma: Light nose with a touch of grain and grass. Flavor: Light grain and malt sweetness but a decent hop bite. Slight grass notes on the hop end. This isn’t too bad for a light beer. Palate: High carbonation with a light mouthfeel and a medium-short finish. Overall: I have certainly had worse light beers. I wouldn’t mind having a few of these during the dog days of summer.
