The Italian immigrants came to Krebs to work in the coal mines that were prevalent in the area at the turn of the century. They wore a light on their hat to show the way through the mines; at the end of the day their "miners light" led the way to a nice, tall, cold beer. A traditional American style beer - dry, light bodied, yet full flavored with a touch of hop finesse, we present Miners Light beer to reflect the tradition of full flavor and sparkling golden brilliance that was so popular with the miners of early day Krebs.

12oz bottle-pours a thin white head and cloudy yellow color. Aroma is musty, wheat, funky. Taste is musty, wheat, funky, faint hops. OK effervescence. Not quite up to the American Wheat except for the carbonation/effervescence.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Very clear golden coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of soap, light malt, lemons and nothing else. Light-bodied; Short flavour of soap, malt, cardboard, water and nothingness. Aftertaste as clean as a glass of lemon-water with a residual soapiness. Overall, a pretty bad beer - even if it is in fact a ’light’ beer. Don’t worry about trying this one, even if you are from out of town and want to sample as many beers as possible. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Joe’s Place in Oklahoma City (Norman), Oklahoma on 26-May-2007 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Vey bracing flavor, little on the delivery. Makes me think of a failed Oktoberfest beer.

bottle from soonah: pours a clean pale hay colour with a fizzy small white head. aroma is sweet an a hint of hops very light. flavour is, well light as you would think but not to bad. there is a little sweetness and i can surly taste some hops in the finish, but not much. the mouth feel is very lively and full of carbonation. overall not to bad of a drinker.

Pale Yellow With White Ring. Corny Sweet Malt ARoma. Light Sweet Corny Grains Flavor...Crisp Aftertaste...Really a Light Ale. Not Offensive.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - FEB 12, 2007
12 oz bottle from Soonah. Hazy bright yellow with a white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Almost devoid of scent, the slightest sweet grain wafts up on occasion. To say the flavor is light would be fairly kind. Same with body. Considering the lack of body, nose and flavor I’m not sure this beer actually exists in this plane of reality. The only thing that confirms I drank something is a fizziness in the back of the throat after I swallow a sip. Wow. How to rate a beer that barely exists? Minor points for not actually tasting BAD, just devoid of flavor.

(Bottle) Pours a yellow color with a small white head. Stale corn aroma, with weak mouthfeel. Overcarbonated. Not a good beer, especially for a craft beer.

jgentgesdo (663) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 18, 2006
Pours clear with thin head that quickly vanishes. Nose is faint musty cornhusks and the slightest taint of skunk. Flavor is almost absent save for continued musty grains and mild astringency. Very thin mouthfeel and no bitterness or aftertaste. Not good.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Clear, pale yellow coloration, short-lived head is gone in a flash, nothing to report on... Aroma also is largely absent, aside from a corny, vegetal smell...not too pleasant. Taste: Innocuous. Wetness is the most solid attribute, but this possesses nothing resembling flavor. slides down the throat with the effortless of aqua, but leaves nothing tasty on the way. A glimmer of grain greets the palate at first, but it fades into oblivion. Mouthfeel: not much of any. This would work for those who find Coors Light an acme of acheivement among beers. Anyone wanting more should search in other bottles, and leave this one be.

It is a very light beer, easily drinkable infact without noticing I drank a six pack in just over an hour, it goes down like water because it nearly is. It does have a slight citrus orange finish to it.
