Certainly one of the better light beers out there. There is nothing special or distinctive about it, and to me, that’s what makes this an effective light beer. It’s actually crisp and refreshing and has none of the affectations some other light beers have -- it strives only to be refreshing, so it’s a good complement to outdoor summer chores when one wants something to facilitate the tedium of yard work.

Can. I’m actually impressed. This brew was cheap but didn’t have the cheap beer flavor. Granted, it didn’t have much flavor at all and shouldn’t really be considered a PALE lager, but as far as a light beer goes, this is one of the better.

Snagged a bottle of this in Milwaukee a couple of years ago. Not bad for a light beer, but nothing special.

12oz bottle, courtesy f my cousin Josh for grandma’s 90th birthday bbq in Rice Lake WI with the whole family. Very clear, pale yellow color. Aroma was very light, some corn and light malt. Flavor was really not that bad, much better than the aroma, somewhat similar to the Leinies Original, but a bit smoother, but not as much flavor of course, not a bad light beer.

One of the few light beers out there that I think are worth every drop. Pours a light yellow with a small head. Has a great crisp taste.

"The Pride of Chippewa Falls" the bottle says. Yes, I assure you. The aroma was of corn and other, perhaps less reputable, cereal grains. There was also quite a bit of hay in the nose. Poured a clear pale yellow color with a fluffy white head that retained its height fairly well. Light bodied and delicately sweet. Tasted pretty much the same as it smelled with the addition of a hint of apple. Blah.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Poured clear into a shaker. The head was the fizzy, white one-finger tall variety. Lots of effervescent bubbles streaming to the top. The aroma was light malt & barley with some corny sweetness to it. The flavor was better with malt, corn and some dryness that I wouldn’t dare attribute to hops, but something balanced the back end out. Thin, watery mouthfeel.

Pale yellow color with a very thin head. Not too much for flavor or aroma. Light.Crisp.

A very nice light beer. Nice golden color with sweet malt aroma and flavor. Small head. Good mouth feel and not overly carbonated. No lacing to speak of but this is a light beer with some substance. I think it’s an A+ for the style.

12 oz bottle. sometimes I have a taste for leinie’s and the light does the trick. if my memory is correct it is similar in taste to the original. for a light it does have more flavor than most american macros. the price is pretty good too.
