I was just looking in the mirror today, and said "boy, are you fat!?!" ..thank goodness they made a light beer for the overweight beer drinker ... . Pours a standard gold with a low fizzy head ... and whats the deal with airline food ... . light corn husk in the nose .. . gambling is great, no doubt about it .. . hmmm, some flavours , light corn and other light sweet notes .. . scott fell last week and hasn’t shut up about it since ... . If this was on tap at shitty BMC bars (95% of all bars) and it was a mystery $2 pint deal, this would replace butt light in a week! ... that being said, it lacks any real micro brew flavours, but it gives you what it says... a light golden ale, no frills, and not offensive .. .

PorterPounder (8356) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarkets - 12 oz bottle.Pours a slightly murky medium golden with a bit of a glint and a slight white head. Sweet aroma with hints of distant fruit and some buttery notes. Refreshing flavor with some of the same buttery notes, muted citrus, and just a hint of cereal. Crisp mouthfeel. Not a bad summer refresher.

12-oz. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a little smear of grayish film on top. Modest stringy lacing, looks flat otherwise. Toasty, corn-nutty, slightly sweaty nose. Watery, flattish body. Toast, corn nuts, and sweat on the mid-palate. Mild corny finish.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of the Binnys Singles Rack (Orland Park, IL). Pours a nearly clear golden hue, light, well carbonated, small white bubbly head that dies to a film eventually, light lacing. Aromas are some citrusy lemon, adjuncty malts are a bit harsh and corny, faint pale, lemon juice, cereal malts. Initial is light bodied enough, with a big watery lemonade feel, faint cereal and corny malts, with a mellow sweetness but a funny watery lemonade tart note. Finish dies out hard, strangely, with little remaining on the palate at all which is surprising given the lemony citrus that you’d think might stick around. Largely water, with light lemon juice and weak malt. Perhaps I’m being hard on this, but this beer is simply a macro made up to convince you it isn’t.. which loses even more points with me.

Tastes very unexciting. Looks like a pale lager, but basically has as little taste as possible to be offended at. Not interesting at all. Waste of space in the mix pack.

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle:   So I held onto this one for a while.   Having said that, its fiery golden, moderate to large frothy white head, spotty lacing, with fairly strong carbonation.   Somewhat of a musty hay/straw/grass aroma, with minor wheat, a little stale wheat.   Pretty much stale maltiness up front, the aroma of grass/hay/straw translates but not as defined.   Feels a bit stale.   Likely age I am guessing.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Finish is clean, not a lot there, guessing thats how this one was intended.   Perhaps appealing to light beer drinkers?   One that I will stear away from given other options, albeit its not disgusting like so many others.

dwyerpg (6493) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 28, 2009
Smells like a malty pale lager, looks the same. Mostly this doesn’t seem much like an ale at all to me, more like a bad pale lager. Quite a bit of malt up front, a thin finish. There’s a slim chance I’ll buy this again.
