Introducing: SCHWAG! Our deliciously cheap light lager That’s right, we have concocted a lager that is easy to drink and easy on the wallet. 5% alc./vol. 10 ibus and 100% malt. It’s locally made, none of those nasty rice and corn fillers, and great for social nights on the town. Schwag, deliciously cheap.

Tap @ M&P. Cheap and easy to drink. Tastes like a slightly better Natty Light. Not bad, but nothing special.

Draught at Green Dragon. Poured pale gold with medium white head. Hoppy aroma with a bit of grassiness. Smellid like a good helles. Tasted like a good helles. Malty with none of the kak of the industrial lagers. Clean finish

Really not that bad, good cereal and caramel flavors to the malts, clean with a balanced bitter finish. Still the same price as other micro pints so they aren’t really going to pick up the people looking for a cheap pint, but might pick up some of the BMC drinkers.

A pretty decent lager though not my favorite. Kind of like if Busch was done right or something.

On tap at Tigi in NE Portland, Oregon--Poured a muddled yet thin burnt sienna-golden hue. Small whie head on top. Lighter than most light lagers. Nose of gritty malts and faint spicy hops. Creamy, bready flavor with a light and thin finish. Very nice for the style and quite affordable.

A great light beer with a lot more flavor than I expected from something so light. Will appeal to those that aren’t into micros. A wonderful, easily drinkable summer beer!
