SpringsLicker (3193) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Pours a pale yellow with a decent white head. Faint malt aroma with little or no hops. Lightly sweet, thin and watery as I expected. I’ve had much worse, but this isn’t really beer.

eaglefan538 (2912) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 27, 2006
A little rough, although not too bad for a reduced alcohol version of a beer. Pilsner-like, some grass hops, some astringent and/or unfermented malts. Appearance was weak, an ok initial head, but short-lived. Boring after a while. Relative to other beers with this little presence of alcohol, this didn’t do too badly. However, I want more than this in my beer.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Very clear, very faded yellowy color, almost like a pear skin gone pale in the sunlight...with a pleasing snow-white head, brief in appearance, leaving light lace. Faint aroma, citrusy, but inoffensive. Taste: not much here. Bit harsh on the palate, actually, but the key character component is "lightness". Fusses little with flavor. Zips in and out of the tastebuds, doing it’s job well, and that job is getting your mouth wet. As I drink on, though, what does stand in for taste becomes increasingly hard to take. Lingers too long in the back of the throat, and there’s not enough good flavor to counter the ill effects of the wan, bitter badness that is there. $3.50 not well spent. When will I learn?

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Bottled. Beer is lightly hazy, light yellow with an average-sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting head. Aroma is soft and pretty: Malty with a light note of toasted grain; Hoppy with light floral/honeysuckle, green grass and straw notes; Yeasty with a trace of dough. The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly-to-moderately bitter with a long, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, lightly sweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is a bit more lively than lively. Right to style and refreshing.

Ernest (6487) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers/honey). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. One of the best sub-3.0% ABV beers I’ve had, actually. Even full-alc Helles are rarely this good. The funny part is I’m not a very big fan of Mahr’s, for the most part...the Jubelfest is cool, but I haven’t had anything else that’s impressed. But this does. I expected crap but got a snoot full of Hallertauer and toasty malt. Very good stuff, and unfortunately doomed to be underrated.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Decent, considering what it is. Malty sweetness and very light bodied, kind of grainey and has a touch of several different grains, but somewhat wheaty. Drinkable.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - MAR 17, 2006
0.5L bottle...pale straw color...very light in color...well carbonated with a white head. Sweet malt and floral aroma...moderate intensity. Light bodied...heh. Bitter & a bit metallic in the finish?? Nice mellow malt character...a very very chuggable beer...plenty of flavor for what it is...if it weren’t so pricey, this would be a staple in my fridge for times when you don’t want something strong, just some beer to guzzle...beer that tastes good though...

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Hazy light golden body with a thin frothy white head. Aroma of grain, some light wheat, corn, and a touch of honey. Mild corn flavor somewhat sweet, wheat shining through in the end.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Pure gold body with a light white head. Good wheat and oats in the aroma. Decient body given the type. Hops are very present. Bitter, tangy ending... This beer is much better than I thought it would be.
