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

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.

on tap-pours a disappearing white head and straw color. Aroma is light crisp grain, faint continental hops. Taste is light crisp grain-caramel/some peat, secondary continental/fruit hops. Dry. Light body.

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

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2010
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.

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

Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, grass, and maybe corn. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor. Still better than Bud/Coors/Miller light products.

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.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Dubbed "McGuire’s Old Fashioned Ale." Extra pale straw color, clear, white head, scattered lacing. Sweet fruity aroma reminiscent of peaches. Watery body but nice grain character.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Listed as Old Fashioned Ale. Pale yellow with some white head. Grainy malt nose with some earthy hops. Again very grainy with a punch of bitterness. Light body with sprite carbonation, and a dry finish. Easy to drink but very little character.

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