2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Pale gold, slightly cloudy color. Not much head. Aroma is a teeny bit floral. Decent tartness in a bready sense, which appeals to me. Goes down easy. Not the least bit offensive except for the absurdly low alcohol content.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
It’s a light pale lager, so there really is not much aroma, but it does smell like a beer and not like an adjunct filled BMC. The light golden appearance is characteristic of the style. Flavor is slight breadiness, a little hop crispness, and some carbonated water. Not the most complex brew obviously but way better than crappy mass produced pale lagers.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Disney’s California Adventure; nose of grain and very light hops;clear gold with a small white head; flavor is just blah grains with some light citrus hop bitterness, better than macros, but the worst Strauss beer I’ve had!

Bottle at event in San Diego, CA. Poured straw color with a small white head that diminished quicky with minimal lacing. Light aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture. Light citurs flavor with a short finish. Worth drinking once.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Has a weak aroma of grain but differes from all other lights because it doesnt smell fake. The drink is tamed and very relaxed in its character of flavors by only allowing a light grained malt backbone. Crisp and clean finish which makes this above avergae in a category of light beers. Straw gold with small film of foam. I wouldn’t mind seeing this at more stores so i could pick it up for the light drinkers i know.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the Old Columbia location. Bitterness is at 15 IBU’s and the lack of malt cannot support even this level of hops. Pale yellow with a white head. Lacks the nasty corn or rice adjunct aroma, but the body is just as meaningless as a BMC. For a Karl, this sucks.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla. Clear golden color without much nose or flavor. I detected some sweet corn from time to time and it smelled a bit like fresh hay. Very watery. Bleh.
