2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
About 4 oz. served into a tasting glass. From notes.
A: Pours a golden straw color with a small white film. Looks pretty unremarkable.
S: There’s a touch of caramel sweetness, and the mildest kiss of hops.
T: This is pretty much a bigger Clearwater Light to me - which means the flavor is still low, but there are some noticeable lemony hops to balance the crackery malt. Actually, it goes too far into the other direction and ends up being soapy on the finish.
M: It’s light with good drinkability, but a little low on carbonation.
O: Honestly? Clearwater Light was better than this. This may have a bit more flavor, but it’s also too soapy. Not one I’d bother with again.
4 oz pour on draft at Hops in Alexandria, VA. Clear golden orange with off-white head. Aromas of malt, citrus, light biscuit. Tastes of malt, citrus, light caramel. Medium-light body with a dry finish. slowrunner77 (12591) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Liked the light better than this garbage. While that was barely beer flavored water, it wasn’t as inherently unpleasant as this. This was "bolder" in that it had more of a flavor kick, but it was bitter and unpleasant. bytemesis (8989) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Tap. Pours clear yellow, small white head, some lacing. Aroma is almost nonexistent other than a touch of grain. Flavor is lemon again, grains, light plus sweet, very light bitter, hints of grass. Light body, annoying carbonation. OnTheTrail (560) - Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2016
On tap at brewpub, in frosted glass. Yellow gold with dissipating head. Light malt aroma. Taste has no off flavors, and a touch of hops. Not a beer for fussing over, but better than I expected from the reputation of the place. solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 24, 2014
This is arguably worse than the light beer here. Pours dark golden without any head or lacing. Light bitter finish. Some acridness and astringency. Too much copper peeling of the McKegs here. Tap at Alexandria brewpub.

Draft Flight 9/1/03 (FLL)-Pours a clear golden with a small head. Aroma of grains, malt, and slight hops. Taste of sweetness and grains. This light to medium bodied brew was not bad but not good. Travlr (25821) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Draft. Another pointless offering. A small white edge head gives this one an extra point for appearance, otherwise it’s wasted space in the glass. brinehart (213) - Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Meh. Almost average, but just lacking in all respects except clarity and clean character. emacgee (4704) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Clean straw gold pour with a white head. Grassy hop and wet hay on the nose. Bread dough. Sweet with a very light, almost nonexistent hop bitterness. Very light and plain.
