Liked the light better than this garbage. While that was barely beer flavored water, it wasnít as inherently unpleasant as this. This was "bolder" in that it had more of a flavor kick, but it was bitter and unpleasant.

Tap. Pours clear yellow, small white head, some lacing. Aroma is almost nonexistent other than a touch of grain. Flavor is lemon again, grains, light plus sweet, very light bitter, hints of grass. Light body, annoying carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at brewpub, in frosted glass. Yellow gold with dissipating head. Light malt aroma. Taste has no off flavors, and a touch of hops. Not a beer for fussing over, but better than I expected from the reputation of the place.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
This is arguably worse than the light beer here. Pours dark golden without any head or lacing. Light bitter finish. Some acridness and astringency. Too much copper peeling of the McKegs here. Tap at Alexandria brewpub.

Draft Flight 9/1/03 (FLL)-Pours a clear golden with a small head. Aroma of grains, malt, and slight hops. Taste of sweetness and grains. This light to medium bodied brew was not bad but not good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
About 4 oz. served into a tasting glass. From notes.
A: Pours a golden straw color with a small white film. Looks pretty unremarkable.
S: Thereís a touch of caramel sweetness, and the mildest kiss of hops.
T: This is pretty much a bigger Clearwater Light to me - which means the flavor is still low, but there are some noticeable lemony hops to balance the crackery malt. Actually, it goes too far into the other direction and ends up being soapy on the finish.
M: Itís light with good drinkability, but a little low on carbonation.
O: Honestly? Clearwater Light was better than this. This may have a bit more flavor, but itís also too soapy. Not one Iíd bother with again.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Draft. Another pointless offering. A small white edge head gives this one an extra point for appearance, otherwise itís wasted space in the glass.

Meh. Almost average, but just lacking in all respects except clarity and clean character.

Clean straw gold pour with a white head. Grassy hop and wet hay on the nose. Bread dough. Sweet with a very light, almost nonexistent hop bitterness. Very light and plain.
