COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This very light, refreshing fruity Ale has a golden color and rich malty complexity that only old-world brewing can produce. Slightly hopped for flavor it’s a perfect beer for easy drinking.

On tap @ Summer Fest. Yellow body, white head. It’s hard to smell much by the lake, there might be some grassy hops. Teh flavor is like a toned-down version of the Special Amber. Cereal malt with grassy hops of the European persuasion. Low carbonation. A good summer festival beer.

On tap at Thunder Bay Grille in Pewaukee.
Clrear piss-yellow body. Minimal head, yet has lots of carbonation. Very weak biscuity aroma. The flavor is quite light and features mostly adjuncts with a slight minty stale hop taste. Makes sense that it's brewed for Summerfest as it tastes like most macros.

Dark golden color with a small head. Sweet honey aroma with some grains. Kind of a weird, muddled grainy flavor. Sweeter than most "lights", but still definitely just a swiller.

Tap at Sprecher's tasting room. I have no idea what kind of 'beer' this is. I dark golden color with a thin head. The taste was bitter and resonated with metal. This was brewed for Summerfest and I think it shows; it's a little too close to macro-swill for my taste.

Bottle. Pours a copper body with a fizzy white head. Toasted malt, Hints of dried fruit and raisin like aroma. Almost a light candy bubblegum aroma. Flavor is a bit gummy with cereal notes, best when served rather cold. Hints of fruit and a note of soap i could do without. Not bad, i thought it might be a drain pour for a buck seventy five.

Draft at Melt in Cleveland as "Melt City Lager" following the Cleveland Marathon. Seriously for the style not bad at all. Enough hops to make it crisp and enough malt to make the mouthfeel a little heavier. Fine.

Sampled on tap at Sprecherfest! It is surprisingly not bad (if it really is a light beer). Anyway, it pours to a darker copper/bronze/gold color than I ever expected. Thin white head. Hazy. Good carbonation. The aroma has a "special amber" like aroma. Light caramel, paper, cereal, hop. The flavor is caramel, amber-like characteristics with hop and malt. Moderate body.

Pours a clear copper with thin, somewhat weak, white head. The aroma is sweet lightly roasted malts, light dark fruitiness with sweet citrus and grape juice. The flavor starts with a little roasted maltiness but then cascades into a potpourri of fruitiness with cantaloupe, pears, granny smith apples, sweet Concord grape jelly, boysenberry preserves and hints of citrus. Seems like they took a thin amber ale and added lots of fruit juice to it.

On tap at a Bockbierfest. Light amber color with a smaller off white head. Grainy caramel and toasted barley aromas. Thin approaching watery, but not quite feel. Grainy and lightly toasted flavors seem to align with the aromas. Better than your average "light", but is that saying much?

Light golden color with a thick white head. Very mild hops and malt with some light fruit undertones. Pale malts and light fruits throughout the quaff. Finish also has a touch of fruitiness. An ale for the masses. Straight forward and fairly faultless.

Bottle. Medium gold color with a small fizzy head that disappears quick. Aroma is pretty mild but consists of corn malt and cereal grains. Flavor is malt and grains with a very light touch of hops in the middle. Light bodied with mild carbonation and a nice malt finish. A surprisingly good and very easy drinking beer.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2006
From a 16 oz. embossed distinctive Sprecher bottle with a freshness date on the neck of bottle. Poured a cloudy orangey copper with a small foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing. Lightly floral, fruity aromas with a grainy background, a bit chalky as well. Good carbonation and softly crisp, dryish, creamy smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant enough, but also kind of bland tasting, sweet maltiness, the malts do have a honey cream ale aspect, a light, airy fruitiness, and a dry, creamy, malty finish. A nice change of pace, satisfying enough to have every great once in awhile.

bottle-well, this is a kinda funny beer. One side of me wants to like it more but the other says its pretty lame that a decent microbrewery would put out a "lite" beer. pours golden yellow with a small white fizzy head. aroma of grains, corn, and light sourness. palate is lite but not as lite as a BMC style beer. body is a little on the chawky side. Needs more flavor in the hops. Good idea, just not well brought out.
