sampled at SHPH. clear straw colored. Aroma of light grains, and maybe a touch of hops. Taste is lightly grainy, just a touch of hops to balance, very clean tasting. Body was watery as expected, with lively carbonation. a good thirst quencher, not my thing but very well done. MullMan (1099) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2006
on tap at the publick house. clear yellow/pale color, light sour grassy aroma. flavor is watery and a little dry grassy. good carbonation. beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Decent, nothing stellar. Holds its own as a mandatory offer for the light beer set. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2006

Every brewpub brews a light beer for the people who wander in, expecting to be able to order bottles of Corona, and have very little concept of how a brewpub works, and even littler sense of adventure. Ernest (7695) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Draught, Publick House, Southampton.
Head is fully diminishing.
Body is light yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers).
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Along with Golden Lager, the beer Southampton keeps on for the people who want Bud or Bud Light. Certainly better than those, but zzzzzz.

Draught at the brewery. Beeer was clear, pale and gold with a small, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma was shy. Malty with just a trace note of toasted grain; light notes of underripe banana, vanilla and peach, trace note of corn. The flavor was lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter with a short, clean, nonexistent finish. The body was light, the texture was watery and the carbonation was lively.

Multiple draught pints on 4/28/06 and 4/29/06 at SHPHSuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 29, 2006
Very pale brass color, with an almost greenish tint, extremely clear with a timid white head that quickly runs for cover. No lacing.
Nose is very cerealic, just highly attenuated white grains, a touch of light, crisp yeast (though it could just be carbonic acid) and a smattering of dry, minimally aromatic saaz hops. Moderate strength for a pale lager. No alcohol, no sweetness.
It’s quite watery, for sure, both in flavor and texture, with quite a bit of carbonation (loose bubbled though), but there is enough of a grainy, attenuated malt residue, with just a touch of white dough to satisfy as a quencher. Hops are noticeable, as well, though they are just dried grass and very light straw. Warming actually improves the flavor, and the carbonation eases up. Near flawless.
Draught at Public House 4/27/06. Pours a very clear and clean yellow color with a light bright white head. Nose is straw and hay, some light grass, a hint of sweet malt. Palate is crisp and easy to swallow with a light film on the finish. Flavors of fresh grass and straw with light yeast and sweet malt. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2006
For a low cal beer this is as good as it gets. Same great taste and still filling! JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2006
Off-clear, apple cider coloured brew with no head to speak of. Very thin and light pale malt aroma. Flavour is barely there, watery body and low bitterness. This brewery does not need this beer. Cidery tasting. No real flaws, but no positive attributes either.
