COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This popular light lager is the lightest of the McGuire's beers. Even though McGuire's Light is crafted like the finest European beer, the flavor is similar to an American style Pilsner Beer. This beer is low in calories and will compliment any meal

This was your microbrew ale equivalent of a Corona style lager, American pilsner, whatever you want to call it. Lacing was very impressive for the boring style, the appearance golden. Light touch of hops to balance out the malts, somewhat of a corn flavor. Mouthfeel was obviously light. Good beer for those that don’t want anything fancy.

On tap at the brewpub in Pensacola: poured a light yellow with adequate white head. Lightly floral hop aroma. Flavor is pretty full for a "light" beer. Lightly sour with hints of lemon. I enjoyed it.

Interesting brew. A light yellow in color wiht a decent white head. Nose was oddly enough of faint hops. Taste was light, fluid, refreshing and mildly hoppy, just a kiss of nice hop flavor. Clean light mouthfeel. Good finish. Maybe the best "light" beer I’ve ever had.

This was a little different. Pale yellow, almost looked the color of pear juice. Small fast fading head. Huge malt flavors which is the change up here. Most pale lagers have some sort of adjuncty kinda flavor and maybe a mild hop for crispness, but this had a pretty pronounced malt profile from fore to aftertatse. It was still thin and watery, but it was like a Light Bass Ale more than it was like a Bud Light. Different.

Very light and crisp, pale blonde with little flavor and thin. I suppose it appeals to macro-fans but its not horrible.

8/6/03: on tap in Destin.
pale yellow body with a lightly hopped nose. lightly malted and hopped with other notes of honey and floral. i think that Madison, the brewmaster has done a good job creating a rather nice flavor for this style of beer.

Pale yellow and a tad thin, but nicely flavorful with light malts.

Not much aroma of flavor, very light.
