The Italian immigrants came to Krebs to work in the coal mines that were prevalent in the area at the turn of the century. They wore a light on their hat to show the way through the mines; at the end of the day their "miners light" led the way to a nice, tall, cold beer. A traditional American style beer - dry, light bodied, yet full flavored with a touch of hop finesse, we present Miners Light beer to reflect the tradition of full flavor and sparkling golden brilliance that was so popular with the miners of early day Krebs.

Thanks ericandersnavy. Pours a very pale yellow with some chill haze. One finger white head. The nose is sweet, malty, some bready character, crisp, leafy bitterness, I think GMCC hit it with "honey". The flavor is interesting. Malty, bready, some honey, a little citrusy, not corn water for sure. Not bad.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Light of aroma honey??? Corn and some other adjuctns. Weird taste. Light honey and lemon??? A sourness to it... Honestly I was ready to bash this beer with an army of nasty vocab, but its not that bad. A little different for a pale lager. A pale lager blended with a Berlin Weisser??? Nothing I would want to drink again though...LOL Thanks eric.

A very bright amber pour, a thin hazy head makes me a bit suspicious. Smells very floral, citrusy, something strange. First sip is cold and a touch sweet but clean. Not really all that bitter, more sour than bitter, I thought. Not the best in their repertoire, but not bad. Not my first choice. But not bad.

ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, gold body with, well, not much head. Smell: Faint whiffs of malt, corn, and spicy hops. Moving on! Taste: Faint light pale malts paired with some choice corn kernels. Lightly sweet. Spicy hops with just a hint of citrus flavor and bitterness, all of it light, mind you. Drying, crisp finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Just a hair above medium carbonation. Drinkability: Just what you’d expect it to be. It’s a light lager and not too far removed from what you’d get from Budmilloors.

Bottle thanks to Swalden28. The look is very clear, very light yellow straw in color, and has a very small head. The smell is very light, some floral hops, and malts. The taste is blah, corn, malts, and grains.
