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.

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.

I’m rating this beer THIS high because of what it is. This is a light beer. No light beer can be GREAT but out of all the light beers, this one is the best. Fantastic!

I bought this for research purposes only, expecting to hate it. I was rather surprised. It actually tastes like beer. Light wheat with a very mild hit of hops in the finish. MUCH better than other lights--such as Bud and Miller. Actually drinkable, and well priced in my neck of the woods.

This is not a bad alternative to Miller Lite or Bud Light. It has more flavor, just a hint of hops, and you can be the guy spending a dollar more per bottle for slightly better beer.

Pours a golden body with a good white bubbly head, nice lacing. Nose of mals and slight flowery hops. Tastes of light sweet malts, a very light hop kiss. The yuppie alternative to Miller and Bud.
