An American style light lager for the American domestic beer drinker. Very easy drinking with a slight malt flavor. This light yellow lager finishes clean with no aftertaste.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly and nearly completely. Aroma has a crisp straw note with hay and straw supporting. Flavor is similar with light grass, straw, hay and grain combining.

CanIHave4Beers (4024) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Pours a very clear golden with a medium sized well retained head that leaves good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is clean & lightly fruity with a little graininess and a little cracker. There is nothing at all offensive about the aroma of this beer, there isnít anything really all that thrilling about it either but itís nice smelling to say the least.

The beer is fairly dry and mildly bitter with a light herbal hop zing. The flavor is very clean but also very light.

This beer drank about as good as any light lager Iíve ever had.

On tap @ Olde Main. Pale yellow appearance with a white head. Light malty lager nose. Slightly grainy, pretty boring pale lager flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 TAP: like Miller LIte, but slightly more bitter and maltier. Some banana on the nose. This has some elements apart from bad American macros, but not a lot.

Draft shaker at Olde Main. Light as any Bud in appearance, with a thin layer of foam. Light beer smell as expected. Taste does show some sufficient malts. I pick up some fruit impressions, but that may be from the leon beer I spilled on myself before this one.

One of my favorites. Iíd call it a medium beer, itís not a light beer, but not a heavy dark either. Very pleasant, more of a grain than hops lager.

Tap at the brewpub. The body was pale yellow with a white head. The aroma was grainy with some dried grass. The taste was light bread crust with some lemon pudding. Decent for a pale lager.
