Decent, nothing stellar. Holds its own as a mandatory offer for the light beer set.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Draught at the brewery. Beeer was clear, pale and gold with a small, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma was shy. Malty with just a trace note of toasted grain; light notes of underripe banana, vanilla and peach, trace note of corn. The flavor was lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter with a short, clean, nonexistent finish. The body was light, the texture was watery and the carbonation was lively.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Multiple draught pints on 4/28/06 and 4/29/06 at SHPH
Very pale brass color, with an almost greenish tint, extremely clear with a timid white head that quickly runs for cover. No lacing.
Nose is very cerealic, just highly attenuated white grains, a touch of light, crisp yeast (though it could just be carbonic acid) and a smattering of dry, minimally aromatic saaz hops. Moderate strength for a pale lager. No alcohol, no sweetness.
It’s quite watery, for sure, both in flavor and texture, with quite a bit of carbonation (loose bubbled though), but there is enough of a grainy, attenuated malt residue, with just a touch of white dough to satisfy as a quencher. Hops are noticeable, as well, though they are just dried grass and very light straw. Warming actually improves the flavor, and the carbonation eases up. Near flawless.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 29, 2006
Draught at Public House 4/27/06. Pours a very clear and clean yellow color with a light bright white head. Nose is straw and hay, some light grass, a hint of sweet malt. Palate is crisp and easy to swallow with a light film on the finish. Flavors of fresh grass and straw with light yeast and sweet malt.

For a low cal beer this is as good as it gets. Same great taste and still filling!

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2006
Off-clear, apple cider coloured brew with no head to speak of. Very thin and light pale malt aroma. Flavour is barely there, watery body and low bitterness. This brewery does not need this beer. Cidery tasting. No real flaws, but no positive attributes either.

desurfer (1224) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2006
I can’t really find any faults with this beer, other than that it’s bland and uninteresting. But it accomplishes its purpose well, which is to offer something boring and unadventurous to restaurant patrons.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Draught @ the best brewery in the world. Expressive cereal grain aroma, clean, with no off smells. Clear yellow color. Clean cereal grain flavors. Very light and well made. I could drink this, whereas all macros I can’t stomach.

Jine (896) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Tap at SPH. 8.21.06 Every brewpub brews a light beer for the people who wander in, expecting to be able to order bottles of Corona, and have very little concept of how a brewpub works, and even littler sense of adventure.

Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Draught, Publick House, Southampton. Head is fully diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Along with Golden Lager, the beer Southampton keeps on for the people who want Bud or Bud Light. Certainly better than those, but zzzzzz.
