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

12 oz bottle. Actually, I was surprised, that for a light beer this one ain’t too bad. Mind, touch of hops and malts. Certainly more drinkable than the typical light brews out there.

Elwood (3064) - 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.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2010
(Sample Date: 12/5/2009 Source:Other) Pint at Greene Leafe in Williamsburg. Very grainy with a touch of fruitiness. Smells more like an ale. Almost clear light golden with little head. Tastes more like a hefe than a pilsner. Light fruitiness and dry finish. Quite refreshing with very little residual bitterness.

Butters (3746) - 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

Drake (8322) - 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.

bhensonb (10930) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours gold with a white head. Fairly bready aroma. Light body. Flavor is lightly malty and very lightly bitter. Seems like a pils ought to exceed 6 IBUs.

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.

Bottle. Straw colored with a short, fizzy white head. Sweet malt and corn in the nose. Sweet malt, cereal and corn taste as well. Light grassy notes. Body is light with fizzy, prickly carbonation. Ends with more sweet malt, corn syrup, and cereal grain with a touch of grassiness.
