3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grainy, cereal malts in a fresh and inviting, mash-like aroma. Brilliant pale golden coloured body with a low white head that recedes to ring. Clean, fresh, malty flavour with light minishing bitterness. Light body with lively carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

Couleur blonde très pale, timide mousse blanche mais demeurant pleinement sur le dessus du liquide. Essentiellement à propos du grain, une trace de houblon floral et citronné se trouve derrière la lentille du microscope. Tout de même un exemple relativement plein de goût dans le style des bières légères. Corps d’épaisseur mince mais adéquate, carbonatation piquante. Encore un autre exemple de la propreté et de la transparence des bières régulières de la maison. Servi en fût, Southampton SHPH, N.Y., Septembre 2005.

Draft at the Publick House. White diminishing head covered extremely pale yellow, clear body. Soft lemony and spic aromas, light notes of apples. Refreshing, good overall balance, thin structure, tartish with limited bitterness. Good light beer, but obviously not very inspiring.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Rather thin and watery, which is to be expected for a light beer. Color is oddly similar to Southampton’s Golden Lager. Flavor evidences no hops whatsoever. Mild and pleasant.

Looks...like a light beer. More hop bite than a macro, slightly herbal in finish. No off flavors. Good for a light beer, really. But still a light beer.

Probably the best light beer I’ve ever had. Still has that thin light beer taste but goes down much smoother than your typical light beer and doesn’t leave a nasty aftertaste like a typical american light beer. Not a great beer but if you want a light beer, this is not a bad choice by any means.

This beer is like pancakes-"all exciting at first but by the end your f*ckin sick of em. " -mitch hedberg
This beer does start out nice with a light color and minimal head, golden color and has a slightly hoppy aroma. As the beer warms you can clearly tell that they use corn as an adjunct, as it reaks of cooked corn or corn on the cob. This could be from DMS but I doubt it. Im pretty sure that they used way too much corn to lighten body and color and it shows. Overall it is drinkable if it is cold but kind of a let down from such a great brewery. I’d gladly take a sam adams or saranac light over this anyday.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2006 A good beer if you’re having lunch with a client. Straw yellow color with a wheat aroma. Nice head retention throughout. A bit thin but what do you expect for 3.5%???

On tap at the pub...
Almost colorless... very pale, straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent lacing. The aroma and flavor are both faint, but interesting and nice. Fruity and malty. Tangy and tart. Butterscotch, lemon and some apricot. Well-balanced, but thin. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, tangy finish. One of the better light beers out there!
