1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark orange, almost red, deep for a light, medium quick-dying head. Nose very light, corny-sweet, inoffensive. Flavor/body buttery-smooth, maybe butterscotchy, but fairly bland; again, corn. No hops whatsoever. Above average for style.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
wow im the first to rate this, what an honor. . .
Brownish gold color, with some slight burnt tinges. Huge cream colored head. Smells flat and syrupy. . .AND SURPRISE! it tastes flat and syrupy! Syrup was the main word for this beer. Like a sweet taste mixed in with some water. Burnt caramel meats watered down barley. No hops taste, well maybe some stale hops in the finish, maybe. High falls brewery tries again. . . and fails.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Another one of those beers that I didn’t think was still being produced. Light amber color with a decent amount of fizzy white head. Aroma is a mix of malts, dry hops, boiled cabbage and sweat. Kind of heavy smelling. The taste began alright with a decent malt and hop taste but then the middle of it was kind of sweaty and greasy tasting. Very odd to explain, but it didn’t taste all that great. Kind of dry and a little bit sour with some malts near the end. Pass.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Clear orange color with a virtually nonexistent head. Stale plastically aroma with hints of cardboard, thick but not good mouthfeel, sweet in a bad way in the ending.

Large amount of foam that did not stay long. Color was a trasparent brown/amber. Flavor of some hops with corn and malt. Smooth and very drinkable. Even though it’s dark, it’s still a thin light beer. Better than most lights.

Kudos for looking marginally like a good beer and the malty palate. But too light overall with not enough going on.

Light amber in color with a small white head.Hop and malt balance,but the hops are stale and lingering.The finish is very boring,nothing impressive.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2004 Hey, its like the commercials say. For a light beer its good. I haven’t gotten a big enough gut to take Light beers seriously but when I do, I will go back and check out Kipling.

Amber color. Lighter aroma of some wierd hops, maybe corn. Flavor was syrupy and finished with this odd roasty and grainy flavor. Good for a light, but it is still a light.
