This beer is like pancakes-"all exciting at first but by the end your f*ckin sick of em. " -mitch hedberg This beer does start out nice with a light color and minimal head, golden color and has a slightly hoppy aroma. As the beer warms you can clearly tell that they use corn as an adjunct, as it reaks of cooked corn or corn on the cob. This could be from DMS but I doubt it. Im pretty sure that they used way too much corn to lighten body and color and it shows. Overall it is drinkable if it is cold but kind of a let down from such a great brewery. I’d gladly take a sam adams or saranac light over this anyday.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2006 A good beer if you’re having lunch with a client. Straw yellow color with a wheat aroma. Nice head retention throughout. A bit thin but what do you expect for 3.5%???

On tap at the pub... Almost colorless... very pale, straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent lacing. The aroma and flavor are both faint, but interesting and nice. Fruity and malty. Tangy and tart. Butterscotch, lemon and some apricot. Well-balanced, but thin. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, tangy finish. One of the better light beers out there!

First off, I don't really like light beer. Second, I tried this with the brewmaster himself, Phil Markowski, and Phil was a little sheepish about this being his best seller, and he wouldn't drink one and was astonished that I ordered one. It is crisp, light colored, and tasted pretty damned good on a hot summer day. If I am going to drink a light beer, this one is it.
