2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Super light appearence and head. Very watery with a hint of hops. A little bit of malt frothiness adds to the faint hops to make a very light, yet still satisfying, beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Basically appearance is that of every macro out there, but the taste is only what you can get with high quality, no adjunct brewing. Pretty plain in every way, but it is so much better than the macros. What Bud, Miller, et. al. should be.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very clear, very pale straw color, with a modest amount of white head that disappears completely. Initially some very spicy hops, with sour green apple and yeast. Some grassy/dill aroma. Modest hop flavor with that nice herbal Saaz quality, some pleasant grain flavor, and a clean finish. Soft on the palate with just enough carbonation to keep it lively. Iíd say this is leaps and bounds better than most American "premium" lagers. But man--more hops would really help here. New Glarus does triple decoction mashing already--so why not load up on the hops and go for something more like a real Czech pils?

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is one of the lightest colored yellow beers that Iíve had, looking almost like carbonated water. Small head, too. The aromaís a sweet grassy smell with extremely faint flowery hops on top. The flavorís a bit light, sweet malt, a dash of lemon, a hint of hop bitterness. The description states that Iíll find "no coarse bitterness" in this beer. Thatís a shame. It might have made it more interesting.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice large bright white head of fine bubbles. Reduces quickly. Great carbonation. Light corn and cereal aroma with some light hops in there. Not much really. Pale gold in color. Light and crisp flavor with more corn and hops. Maybe a little lemongrass. Pretty watery though. Finish is clean and a little dry. Knowing the BMC crowd out there this is probably and unfortunately their best seller.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Got to try this late on Monday during my business trip to Milwaukee (Bernieís in Germantown, on tap). Got to say, poured like a miller or natural light. Had minimal aroma (though tough to say due to the smokers at the bar)Ödid not find it offensive, just non-descript. The flavor was very light with (perhaps) some hop crispness moving directly into the standard Cornish semi-syrupy sweetness of light lager. Overall, this would likely be good as an ice cold quencher (in fact, you could give it a 3 in that catagory) when you did not want to think about it (but isnít that what Miller light is for?)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a light, see through golden color with an averaged sized white head. Malty sweet and grassy aroma and tastes. Light to medium sweet. Light body. All around too light for my tastes.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale golden with a small fluffy head. Aromas of grass, hay and yeast. Very mild flavor of grain and sweet malt with a very light hops bitterness at the finsh. Very light bodied with a crisp refreshing feel. Drinkable and very good if you need a change from the heavier ales and lagers (and sometimes I do).

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2009 Pours a yellow hue. Smells of grass, yeast, dough. Tastes of grain, sweet malt, and mild hop flavor. Reminds me of a macrobrew but very crisp and smooth.. Nothing fancy but a great lawn mower beer. But thatís just what a beer like this is, easy drinking, nothing fancy but damn drinkable. The low ratings, I expect, are due to the fact that it isnít intensely hoppy or has some other overt flavor profile. However, in its style I canít think of a better beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light golden with a modest head and a bready yeasty aroma. Light bodied, bready and on the sweet side with a mild spicy hoppiness into the finish. Nothing fancy but pleasantly drinkable-lighter but reminded me some of a Helles.
