4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light amber color with a small white head...but does have some lacing.
Aroma has hints of honey and straw/
grass. Taste is malty and sweet on the front end and then there’s some hops and fruit on the finish. Crisp and refreshing....I’d buy it again.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From notes taken at the Southwest Beer Festival in Scottsdale, Arizona. The conditions were hard to take notes in but these are the ratings and they stand. No aroma. Grassy lager. So so.

SNBs obvious attempt at attracting the lighter (in taste) drinkers out there. While most, if not all, of you reading this "get it" about the superiority of craft/micro’s, the $$$ is definately in making adjunkt (misspelling intentional) beer. SNB thought they’d try to appeal to those drinkers. While this is better than the macros, those same drinkers will stick to the stuff half the price. This is SNB Pale Ale Light in short.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden color with perfect clarity. Typical pils aroma, although this is more vibrant than most. In the nose, light malt (honey, caramel) and some aromatic saaz (earth, pepper, skunk.) Flavor is clean, with light malt flavors a touch of hops on the finish. Watery texture. Just an easy drinking Pils, a little to simple.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 Bottled. Not as flavorful as the better known SN, IMHO. Very pale pour. Just a touch of hops (but at least there are hops). Not much else to write home about.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow color with a fizzy head, vague hoppy aroma. The attraction here is a VERY smooth lager taste, well-balanced between malt and hops with a clean but bitter aftertaste and slight sweetness throughout. I would definitely return to this again when the mood is right for a refreshing lager.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2005 For as smooth as this beer finished, I was suprised at the mild bitter bite at the onset. I thought it was a pretty good beer, although nothing spectacualr.
