Thanks to Lagunitasfan for this brew. 12oz bottle. Pours clear pale gold with small white head. Aroma is grainy with light fruits. Flavor is light and crisp with light fruit and grain with some sweetness. Not bad for a summer brew. Hard to beleive MGD 64 has a higher abv than this brew.

Clear golden with a mammoth, rocky head. Crisp, malty aroma with slight earthy hops. The flavor is dominated by biscuit malts with a ever so faint fruit tone. Smooth, clean body. The aroma is off-putting, but the flavor isnít all that bad. Overall itís pretty boring, though.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Darkish golden in color. Sweet, roast corn aroma, with the lightest hints of apple. Very subtle flavor, corny, and very cidery. Not much by way of hops, a very slight bitterness in the aftertaste, and a very dry finish. Kind of watery. It’s not amazing by far, but it’s tolerable, and as far as most American lagers go that’s saying a lot.

Bottle from Henryís. Light yellow on pouring. Slightly sweet grainy aroma, very light. More flavorful than most beer super light beers. Still it is what it is, a light beer.

draft at brewpub - I donít have much to say about this one. Itís about what Iíd expect from a light pale lager that at least avoid adjuncts. Itís thin, sweet, and bland.
