May be the best light beer in the world in my opinion or at least the best I’ve ever tried. I’ve been drinking this for years and never got around to rating it. Goes down like a light beer should and very refreshing with more substance & taste than other light beers. Excellent pizza beer or with salt & vinegar potato chips.

This was the only beer I could find at the Dogwood Festival in Atlanta during an 8 hour stopover from Panama to the UK. I don’t know why I’m bothering to rate this, I couldn’t finish it so I gave it someone I was travelling with who doesn’t drink beer. He finished it...

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2014 Bottle from the in-laws fridge. Aroma: Mostly sweet cereal, like corn puffs. Hop aroma is minimal, but seems to tend toward grass. Appearance: Very carbonated gold with white head that quickly dissipated. Flavor: Matches the nose; mostly cereal with some faint grass. Palate: light body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation, long finish. Overall: A beer you get from your in-laws fridge.

Bottle. Aroma is all but nonexistent. Light grains, very watery, thin, metallic, bad. Exactly as expected
