2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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!

First off, I don't really like light beer. Second, I tried this with the brewmaster himself, Phil Markowski, and Phil was a little sheepish about this being his best seller, and he wouldn't drink one and was astonished that I ordered one. It is crisp, light colored, and tasted pretty damned good on a hot summer day. If I am going to drink a light beer, this one is it.

ya ain't missin' a thing, partner. Sweet and fresh, that's about it. Bland, watery, better than most lights. So what. So I'm the first to rate it. On to bigger and better.
