2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft from Willmington. Poured a clear light watery gold with a small bubbly head. This one actually had some slight beerish aromar with some grainy malts and perhaps even a touch of floral hops. Flavor was mostly light malts with no real detectable hops. For a BMC Lite clone type beer this one actually had some flavor but its still a lite so I ask you, Why?

(11/8/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in North Wales. Clear pale yellow. Aroma has some graininess, bread and a bit of noble hops. Sweetish grainy flavor with very light bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Wilmington brewery. It pours a light but crisp golden color with a frothy head. The aromas are faint, but there is a slight hop sweetness and a touch of malt. The flavor is more of the same. There is a crisp cleanliness to this one and it is refreshing if nothing else.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2008 Wilmington. My rule of thumb is that you can generally tell the quality of the brewpub based on the light beer. Though the light is never my favorite, if it is done well, then the other brews will be done well too. The converse is true. In this case the beer was bland, watery, and very lightly bittered. Cereal, nutty sweet aroma. Clear, light, filmy head. Cereal-oat-puffed wheat flavor.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
(On tap in Lancaster) Tastes a lot like miller lite, perhaps a bit creamier. Too sweet. Bad aroma: the nasty sourness is present like in any macro lite beer. Plus one point over miller lite just because it’s not owned by a big conglomerate corporation. I am not convinced it’s any better as a beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours light golden into the glass, with an initial head that leaves soapy lace. Some small citrus and wheat, maybe, but no real substance to the flavor palate. The finish is small and grassy, with a seltzery and hollow mouthfeel. My least favorite of the entire sampler offered. (Meeting with the brewer, he explained that this was the "macro" light offering, trying to offer this to patrons in the hopes that it might "switch" palates to better beers down the line. At least a nice incorporation to the business plan.)
