Beerman6686 (4289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2005
aroma is somewhat pleasant much like its cunterpart Straub, appearance is a pale straw color, flavor tastes a lot like regular Straub but more watery and worse aftertaste, palate is watery of course, overall 6/20 because of low alcohol content

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Piss yellow, fizzy white head that dies down quickly. Watery grainy aroma. Grainy unispired malt flavors, with floral tinges of hop, most noticable in the finish. Mouthfeel is very light.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2005
12 oz bottle pours pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma of light grains and malts. Flavor is much the same. Very slight hop finish. On the palate this is crisp and clean and actually not all that bad for a light beer that is only 96 calories.

it could have been worse for a light beer. It had that light beer taste, but wasnít as watery or thin like coors light. as far as light beers are concerned this one isnít that bad.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 I have never encountered anything drinkable from Straub and this beer proved to be no exception. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an extremely light pale yellow with a medium sized bleach white head. The aroma is sweet and grassy. The flavor is sour and grassy with a light sour tang and a dry finish. Not good but less offensive than their regular beer.

MrBeer (276) - Erie, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Itís not terrible but itís not good either. Appearance is a yellowish looking color, not too appealing. There is some flavor there but it just isnít strong enough.

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Pours pale yellow. Aroma of mild malt, some citrus. Slight malt, hop, citrus taste, but not much. Fairly bland and uninteresting.
Earlier Rating: 4/14/2004 Total Score: 2.3
Not as good as regular Straub, but not a drain pour either. This beer is affordable and drinkable on hot summer days. My father swears by it, but I never stock it as I prefer pales, IPAs and I2PAs.

BBB63 (6010) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Oh boy, the 02/02/2004 version. lucky me. Pale straw hue, fizzy diminishing head and no lace. The aroma is that of grassy and wet grains, mild malt hints and nothing else, very weak nose. The taste had a citric twang, touch lemon zest, and buttery biscuit. Bland and watery. The hint of bitter aftertaste. Watery, fizzy, light mouthfeel. A poor brew from a poor brewery, but their stuff does appeal to the masses of western PA. Makes Iron City seem world-class.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2003
I'd have to give this a higher score in Appearance if it wasn't for the too pale yellow color - It did have a decent head and the lacing was just fantastic for such a light beer. Flavor was sharp with carbonation up front, a thin sweet malt, and a lightly peppered hop bite at the finish. Surprisingly not horrible.
Earlier Rating: 3/25/2003 Total Score: 0.9
Thin, almost to the minimum of Mich Ultra proportions. Barely any taste at all - a tiny bit of sweetness and that's all. At least this is not like the movie "Groundhog Day" - you'd have to drink this beer over and over again. (the label was neat though)

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 18, 2003
This beer (and I use the term loosly) pours with a very pale (and I mean pale) yellow body topped by a medium thick white quickly disappearing head with surprisingly good lacing. The nose is a grainy, grassy hop aroma with musty notes and a tiny bit of malt. The aroma is stronger than expected but not all that appetizing. Umm, yeah ok, after how strong the aroma was I expected a little flavor, but a glass of water is what I got instead. Very, very light bodied and smooth with a touch of dryness.
