2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at RB Indy/Downtown. Hazy yellow with no head. Nose is sweet, light yeast and faint fruit - not much here! Malty and soft, but lightly dirty before resolving to a Nottingham-like bready aftertaste. Medium body a little full for style. Nothing really too off here, but I can’t get over the dirt.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampler Draft at brewpub. A fine example of the style, showcases the best of what this style can bring. This beer is perfect for a long, hot day when you want a thirst quencher with high drinkability but prefer more taste and complexity than the macros. There is a hint of hops in the nose, with small white head. This beer doesn’t bring out many flavors, but it is well balanced and is fuller than comparable light beers. A good craft beer gateway for non craft/import drinkers.

Had on tap at the brewpub. Pretty much your average old light pale lager to tell you the truth.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
draft at the downtown brewpub - Pours yellow with a one finger white head and a very light malt aroma. The flavor is also extremely light. It’s watery and while not bad tasting, that’s mostly because it hardly tastes like anything. I think there’s a touch of hops in the finish. This pointless beer has no reason to exist.

A nice change from BMC, but not one I care too much about. Looks like a thicker, fuller Bud, and tastes about the same.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Out of the sampler at the College Park brewpub. Foamy white head over a pale yellow beer. Light grain nose. Flavorful for a brewpub’s light offering. Light citrus peel, some sweetness, and an odd flavor that reminded me of baloney. Still a decent light beer.
