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

Tap. Gold in color with a medium head. Aroma was grains and kind of weak. Taste was also weak with grain flavor with a bitter finish.

Take one of your run-of-the-mill macro lagers, add a hint of spice, sprinkle and a dash of floral hops, and serve cold.

Sampler at the Destin Pub. Per beer sample sheet "McGuires Old Fashioned Ale". Light earthy hop notes and some grain in aroma. Clear light straw/golden. Earthy hop notes with some pilsner malt qualities in flavor. Light body with dry crisp finish. Not sure whether a cream ale or a lager but has some qualities of both.

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.

This was a decent beer for all the Miller Lite and Bud drinkers that show up at this interesting tourist attraction. Golden clear beer with little head, not too much flavor, just barely hoppy. Very clean and not offensive at all.

Eh. Reminds me of a lighter Hofbrau. Probably the best beer at McGuire’s, but nothing special.

Draught at the pub in P’cola. Very pale golden in the glass without much head. Watery but refreshing. Nothing amazing.

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

Not bad- honestly tastes like your typical BMC, but I guess that’s the point.
