UPDATED: APR 30, 2007 on tap at the Alchemist. Aroma is resiny floral/citrus hops. Taste has alot of hop character, floral sticky hops with a very impressive malt backbone considering how low in alcohol it is. Finishes bitter. excellent, I would have never guessed this was under 5 percent, let alone under 4.

Clear golden-yellow body topped by a small white head. Impressively tasty beer given its low 3.4% abv. Youd never guess. Full body with plenty of cereals. To me its most striking feature is how grassy it was. Lots of grass/hay/straw flavour. Nice grassy bitterness. Kind of pilsner-ish overall. Probably the best below 4% Ive ever had. Plus just think how much fun youll have to answer what are you drinking? with a dry tone of voice.

My Bottom Line:
This characterful Mild Ale generously serves up the resinous and grassy luxury of Horizon hops onto as many lofty cereals as you can imagine a 3.4% abv beer to have. Flavorful, absurdly drinkable, this low gravity ale is yet another testament to John Kimmichs immense talent.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head settles atop the golden translucence.
-The resinous hop bitterness is lengthy and succulent.
-The hay-like grain balances out the expressive hoppiness, and amazingly avoids watery characterizations for such a low gravity ale.
-I found this to be even better than their regular light offering, Light Weight.
-Do you think this beers name is a wry comment aimed at those who believe a craft beer has to be immense to be flavorful?
