As the 19th century gave way to the 20th, brewers sought to produce beers that would appeal to the growing middle class. Many beers of the day were quite strong, and not considered suitable for the upwardly mobile family man and his wife. Light Dinner Ales sprung up both in the United States and England to cater to changing tastes. They were full-flavored beers, but brewed with less malt. They were considered a fine accompaniment to large meals, where a stronger beer might have been too filling. Post Road Light Dinner Ale is brewed from the finest European malts and seasoned with hops from the Pacific Northwest. It is gold in color, with a light bready flavor, snappy clean bitterness and bright hop aroma. A terrific beer with fish, shellfish, salads and summer foods.

On tap at the Brooklyn Brewery. I was not expecting much from this "Light" Dinner Ale. It was quite refreshing and pretty good considering it was a light ale. Pale yellowish color not too pleasing to look at. Nice and refreshing.

Ill echo pauls sediments on the 5$ 20 oz. Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Grainy and husky notes, light citrus. A bit dank with a hint of oats. A light bread y body with a mild husk y bitterness. A grape note, reminiscent of flowers and grape pop. Nice crisp and clean finish. Decent offering.

Tap at Spuyten. $5 for a 20 oz pint! Best deal ever from Spuyten! Pours a clear clean yellow golden with a thin white head. Aroma is clean- light grassy, hints of citrus, lemon, toast, light cracker and cereal malts, mineral- low ester. Flavor is also clean, crisp, light toast, some cereal, pale malts, grass, earth, citrus lemon zest hint, green and minerally in the end with a clean crisp finish- very easy drinking- had a couple pints.

I trust it isn't additives-laden, but it still emits some old, dirty aromas. Off-amber color, watery palate, very light finish, very forgettable. (on tap, Brooklyn Brewery)
