Sorry, no offense, i’m just not a light beer girl. However, I wrote that this one had an okay mouthfeel and was "good" for a light beer.

biznizness (1071) - Mooresville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Tap at the pub in Asheville. Not very impressed with this place, although I only tried 2 beers. This was a throwaway, brewed for the people who come in and ask for Bud Light type beer. PASS.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Not good. A little funky tasting and smelling. Some grassy, pilsener like characteristics. Super light and watery. Stale biscuit taste. Lightly sweet finish was not as crisp as I had hoped for. Boring, mild, and strange tasting beer. No aroma at all.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Tap at the brewpub on 2/3/08: Transparent deep golden with a thin covering of wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet and doughy pale malts with a touch of earthy hops. Starts lightly sweet and slightly grainy with a good balance of bitterness toward a crisp, refreshing finish. A drinkable, yet quite flavorful golden.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2009
On tap at Jack of the Wood. Light hoppy beany aroma with some pilsner malt sweetness and carbonic gaseousness. Pale straw clear with thin white head. Light body with medium light carbonation. Not quite crisp but refreshing. Good sweet flavor with little hops though some bitterness in the finish. Sweet smooth after.

Drake (8548) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2009
On draft at the brewpub as part of a sampler. Pours a clear gold color with a large head. Fair head retention and lacing. Faint aroma of sweet malts. Taste is straw, grassy hops and an odd sour note. Medium bodied.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
Butters (3764) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Draft at the brewery. Very Clear pale straw with ample white head. Pleasont corn and grain husk aroma. Citric, piney hops in flavor, but not overbearing. Could easily see this as a decent session beer.
