COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is by far the lightest beer that we have made, or ever will make. Utilizing 100% North American ingredients, including 23% rice, it is "lite", but it actually has flavor compared with what 95% of Americans are used to. Delicate hop nuances, and subtle esters, followed by a bone-dry finish, this is a great BEER to start the night off with.

onceblind (9175) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Clear light golden with a foamy thin white head. Adjunct filled cornish and lagery cracker nose without much depth. Flavor is bland, crackery, heavily lagered and slightly corny adjunct filled. Making a great replica of shit beer is still shit beer. Super clean, yes, but boring as, and corny.

Can as a gift. What a crystal clear beer. The body is near-transparent, very light yellow with a long lasting white head. Carbonation is assertive. The aroma is mild with rice, cereal, a kiss of papery hops, and mineral water. La Cumbre nailed their objective. This is definitely an American adjunct lager and not anything else. Its super fizzy, malts are grainy with minimal pilsner quality, hops add a nice earthiness and light citrus. No DMS, acetaldehyde, or other undesirables you may find in the macro lagers.

foyle (417) - Wyoming, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Poured from 16oz can into pilsner glass. A 1" white head drops quickly with some decent foamy lacing. Color is a hazy straw with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma of biscuit, grain husks and grassy hops. Light and silky mouthfeel with a dry finish. Flavors of bread crust, biscuit, some lemon and citrus rind hops. Overall a really enjoyable lager.

Ernest (7628) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of DMS and metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Well, I suppose its to style in that it smells and tastes fairly unpleasant (although though there *are* decent, drinkable pale lagers out there). This has a touch of hop aroma to help a little bit, but otherwise it doesnt seem to attempt to actually be enjoyable. Presumably made grudgingly to appease Bud drinkers.

3fourths (9320) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2016
From can its clear pale gold with a short white head of little retention. Aroma is lightly malty in the way of saccharine and toasted cereal with apple and pear-like touches that seem ester-derived (not acetaldehyde). Its minimally hoppy and seems cleanly fermented, the malt lacks depth and the aromatic hops are difficult to distinguish, but you cant say it doesnt hit the mark for the style. Clean, lightly sweet, bubbly, and simple.

Frank (4167) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Craft cheap style beer that tastes like real cheap beer! I am too excited about this. It reminds me most of Budweiser with its slighly apply note and light texture. Im into it. This beer is Frank approved.

maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - JUN 23, 2014
[email protected]: Pours light straw yellow, with a grainy aroma, and a medium-bodied buttery-biscuity malt middle and finish. Overall, this is the gateway craft-beer drug for Budweiser fans.

deyholla (11175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and grain with a hint of grass underlying. Flavor has a nice combination of grass and pine with some onion and earthy grain backing.

Terminus (3669) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 26, 2013
tap at brewery February 2013 Pours pale yellow with a small white soapy head and nice lacing. nose of grainy and adjunct lots of wet grains here. flavors of clean grains, cereal, corn and lite leaffy bitterness. a very solid session lager if you ask me. Somewhat sweet finish due to the adjuncts but a winning american standard if you ask me. Wish this was available in cans. Simple yet refined example of the style.

jandd1983 (4210) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a copper color with a small white head. The aroma was nice and hoppy. The taste was medium to strong hops, tempered a bit by a fair amount of sweetness. A very good brew.
