COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the Menninger family tradition, this light bodied Ale is lagered to create a highly refreshing beer with subtle fruitiness in the nose and a soft palate. German Perle and Tettnang hops provide a subdued spicy balance.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a light clear straw color with a white head. The nose brings forward some grain and very subtle fruit flavors. The taste is a bit of grain with light stone fruits. Some straw as well. Really light with crisp carbonation. Easy drinking and quite light. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-24-2010

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - OCT 16, 2010
Draft at brewpub. Golden with a very small offwhite head. Smalls almost like nothing, just a hint of pale malt. Flavor is cereal, pale malt, and very little (skunky) hoppiness. Smooth and light bodied on the palate with some tingly carbonation. Overall: boring, but certainly descent for a session.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Draft at RB Arlington. This is not the same beer, the Light Ale was not a Kolsch in any discernible way. Pours a super pale yellow with white head. crystal clear. Nose is far off noble hops and corn. Taste is almost non-existent, some faint grain and that’s it. Clean.

16oz draft. Clear yellow color, no head by time it made it to the table. Aroma is unremarkable. Flavor is light, not offensive, nothing special though.

Location: Made a trip to the Arlington Rock Bottom the same day I saw The Dark Knight

Overall Impression: Thought this beer was very dull and average, not terrible, just not a ton there...

Sampled on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear very pale yellow color with a small head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is strong corn and grain. Taste is lightly bitter grassy hops, corn and grain. Thin bodied. Much like a pale lager.
