COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jgb9348 (4487) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, gold body with, well, not much head. Smell: Faint whiffs of malt, corn, and spicy hops. Moving on! Taste: Faint light pale malts paired with some choice corn kernels. Lightly sweet. Spicy hops with just a hint of citrus flavor and bitterness, all of it light, mind you. Drying, crisp finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Just a hair above medium carbonation. Drinkability: Just what you’d expect it to be. It’s a light lager and not too far removed from what you’d get from Budmilloors.

Thanks ericandersnavy. Pours a very pale yellow with some chill haze. One finger white head. The nose is sweet, malty, some bready character, crisp, leafy bitterness, I think GMCC hit it with "honey". The flavor is interesting. Malty, bready, some honey, a little citrusy, not corn water for sure. Not bad.

travita (3692) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Bottle thanks to Swalden28. The look is very clear, very light yellow straw in color, and has a very small head. The smell is very light, some floral hops, and malts. The taste is blah, corn, malts, and grains.

Bottle. Pours a kinda hazy yellow with white fizzy head. Aroma of some light citrus and light malt. Flavor of some light malt and some odd ball flavor. Mouth feel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, for a light beer, this was pretty good! Has some flavor and easy drinking.....

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.
