4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is a good example of why I don’t get this site sometimes - Why the bias against lighter beers? This is really good beer. Ignore the low ratings on this one. Many people don’t seem to understand that light doesn’t necessarily mean a beer is not complex and pleasing. Lucid Air is one of my favorite local Twin Cities offerings. Crisp fresh aroma, nice clean grainy palette with a slightly bitter citrus finish. It has more bite than what you would expect from a lower alcohol beer.
Listen I like uber hopped beer as much as the next guy, but I like a little variety too. There’s always room for Lucid Air in my refrigerator.

I’m still working on liking beer in general, and this was very smooth, not a super strong beer taste. After a few drinks already, this would be pretty tolerable.

Draft at the brewery. A bit of a kolsch thing going on here. Golden malt. Clean all the way, if perhaps a bit corny. Good body, drinkable. Every day beer. (#5661, 8/28/2014)

Bottle. Pours a hazy, yellow color with a frothy white head. Malty aroma with a hint of citrus. Lemony flavor. Light sense of malt. Nothing that stands out but not too bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-22-14. Juicy aroma features scents of apple juice, white grape juice, white wine, and some armpit/dust dryness. Not much to the aroma. Pours a clear, very pale brass with a small amount of light beige head. Light to moderate effervescence. Produces okay lacing. Boring appearance. Dry, tart flavor is also a touch beery. Green apple, biscuit, and a touch of caramel in the taste. Not a bad tasting beer, but there’s not a lot to it. Light to medium body. Lively in the palate. Easy to drink and refreshing. Overall, Lucid Air is a boring although inoffensive beer. It serves competently as a light refresher but nothing more.

Bottle. This is a great beer to get your skeptical dad to try something other than bud light. It's a light, easy drinking beer with citrus notes that make it much more interesting than most light American lagers. Good for a hot day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Lemony barley malt aroma. Hazy yellow with a large white head. Lemony yeasty barley malt, and grassy hops flavor. Light body, lively carbonation. Nice easy drinking summer beer.

Bottle. Hazy yellowish pour with a small soapy white head. Light grains and some honey / fruity sweetness. Subdued and not bad tasting. Palate is very light and borders on watery.

Boring fucking beer. Like a slightly better macro lager. They need to quit producing this beer.

Light ale with strong citrus notes and a cirtus aroma. Very refreshing flavor that would be great on a hot summer day.

Pretty good stuff - a bit thin, but decent flavor and aroma. Looks good too. Well rounded lighter beer. I could see this as a nice session brew. Wonder how it is on draft. And curious now about the breweries’ other beers.
