COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This straw-colored Lager is brewed with Pilsen malt to create an easy drinking beer with a crisp and clean finish. A small portion of Mt. Hood hops lend a subtle spicy hop character to this perfect introduction to handcrafted beer.

At RB Chicago: Very light yellow with a nice enough head. Nice crisp edge with a lightly tart finish. For a "light" this is pretty good stuff.

Pale Yellow Coloring with Small White Head. Some Malt/Grains and Sweet Strains...and I say Strains, as the Flavor Most Certainly is Straining to be Existant in This Brew.....and Unfortunatly Fails in its Quest to Satisfy.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2005
Pale yellow color with a thin film of a head. No real aroma to mention. Thin grains in the taste. Yeah... it’s a light alright...

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 Piss yellow colored with a thin white head and no retention. Aroma was very similar to a BMC, had that rubbery smell. I couldn’t distinguish anything about this to set it apart from a BMC in the flavor either.

JMerritt (1792) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Clear, light yellow with a small white and fizzy head. Head is mostly diminishing. Light grain aroma, with mild hops and grass. Corn and cardboard with a slightly medicinal flavor. Medium body with soft carbonation. Metallic finish.

DrnkMcDermott (2792) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2007 Draft, sampler. One of those "light" beers that corporate brewpubs are required to keep on tap. Has that slightly metallic off flavor of a lite beer, but otherwise, not really terrible. There’s simply not too much you can do with this style.

Re-sampled, Oct. 8, 2007. Not much that changes my rating, but I’m surprised to note that I liked Tim Marshall’s version at the Yorktown location better. Maybe it’s because I had that in a mug and I’m piecing this out from a sampler.

heykevin (1275) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Tap, Chicago. Not a ton of aroma. Corny malt flavor, but clean and nondescript.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2003
Light yellow. Undistinguishable malt notes and bland, boring hops in the finish. Not very good, but decent to clean the palate between beers in the sampler.

Nuffield (3668) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2003
For a light beer, I found this surprisingly flavorful, decently hopped--again, for its style. Tingling carbonation that prevents a watery feel, obviously a pale yellow. But kudos to all those Bud Light drinkers who find they prefer this. (on tap, Rock Bottom, downtown Chicago, IL)

Mild and forgettable. Zzzzzzz. A real snoozer if you’re a beer buff, cuz you won’t find solace in a pint of this piss.
