So clear, so light, so tame. It has a white fine bubbled head w/ good staying power and tons of lace. This was served to me super cold at the brewery and in this condition it was exceptionally light and crisp. There is not much going on here aside from a faint note of apple amongst the miniscule contributions from grassy hops and Grape-Nuts malts. Unless you consider the apple note a flavor flaw--and many do--this is pretty much devoid of any problems aside from the fact that it was brewed to be pretty much tasteless but it is exactly what it’s supposed to be and I respect that.

Draft pour at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten in St. Louis. Pours a pale clear gold with a white head. Pale malts, a lot of hay, with grass and lemon. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel that finishes dry. Not much to say here. It’s fine for what it is.

On tap at the Biergarten. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a musty bread note with a bit of grain backing. Flavor is thin with bread and grain notes and a touch of corn.

Draft at STL brewery. Aroma is cold and nothing else. Pour is an amazingly clear pale yellow. Taste is completely water and maybe a touch of hay. I am boggled at how there is no flavor here at all. But yet very drinkable.

Pale Lager tick courtesy of TheHOFF43. 12oz clear glass bottle with screw top cap pours with a clear pale gold body that supported a short lived near white head. The aroma offers up some sweet smelling fruity esters as well as floral hops and a bit of spicy hops. The taste confirms as I get a mix of pear and apple like sweet fruity esters that are cut by above average carbonation that scissors through the sweetness and leading the way toward muted and mild floral to spicy to slightly lime like hops. Nothing wrong with this and the estery sweetness is balanced somewhat which is nice but… It ends fairly neutral and free of after taste. When it’s a 110F out this might do the trick. Don’t know.

The light version of Michelob Golden Draft, really not much else to it other than a watered down Mich Gold Draft.

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a light golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew was to compete with MGD and not nearly as good IMO.

12 oz. bottle. Gee, thanks TheHOFF43. Pours pale yellow, with a big, quickly dissipating, off-white head. The aroma is corn syrup, very light noble hops, and a touch of caramel. Sweet, very light bitterness, and a slight, sticky, medicinal note in the finish. Light body, sticky, with low carbonation. This is a relatively inoffensive beer, but with the flavor is just a little unpleasant; enough to make this worse than the average macro lager.
