COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is by far the lightest beer that we have made, or ever will make. Utilizing 100% North American ingredients, including 23% rice, it is "lite", but it actually has flavor compared with what 95% of Americans are used to. Delicate hop nuances, and subtle esters, followed by a bone-dry finish, this is a great BEER to start the night off with.

maltman53 (345) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Tap@Brewery: Pours light straw yellow, with a grainy aroma, and a medium-bodied buttery-biscuity malt middle and finish. Overall, this is the gateway craft-beer drug for Budweiser fans.

deyholla (6707) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 6, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and grain with a hint of grass underlying. Flavor has a nice combination of grass and pine with some onion and earthy grain backing.

Terminus (3250) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 26, 2013
tap at brewery February 2013 Pours pale yellow with a small white soapy head and nice lacing. nose of grainy and adjunct lots of wet grains here. flavors of clean grains, cereal, corn and lite leaffy bitterness. a very solid session lager if you ask me. Somewhat sweet finish due to the adjuncts but a winning american standard if you ask me. Wish this was available in cans. Simple yet refined example of the style.

jandd1983 (2588) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a copper color with a small white head. The aroma was nice and hoppy. The taste was medium to strong hops, tempered a bit by a fair amount of sweetness. A very good brew.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2013
From Truckpro! Pours a crystal clear straw color with a wispy white head and moderate carbonation. Aroma of apple, rice and biscuit. Taste is sweet with flavor following suit. A little bit of bitterness on the end. The body has some creaminess that gives way to some dryness. Not my favorite style in the least, but I think this batch was pretty well executed.

smaynard6000 (642) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2012
on tap at the brewery. Pale yellow with average-sized creamy white head. Sparkling clear with light carbonation. Subtle grain aroma. Light bodied with creamy mouthfeel. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter, with a clean, crisp finish. Slight notes of banana hint at the possibility of Belgian yeast. A nice easy drinking lager for a hot summer day in Albuquerque.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2011
Straw. Slightly appley note. Thin, a bit sulphury and maybe a bit harsh. If aiming for a skunky macro, this is a winner.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Draft @ Corrales. Very yellow. Phenolic aroma has plastic elements. Sticky palate. Green apple in the finish. Pretty bad, and not sure if that is intentional or not.

Gold metal winner at 2011GABF. Taste’s like what an american pilsner should taste like. Despite the addition of rice to this beers recipe it still passes the taste test.
