Bottle. Light gold pour with a small white head. Nose of grainy malts. Flavor is lightly sweet with some faint fruit and malt notes. Minimal hop presence. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes a bit sweet and mildly crisp. Nothing special. Can there be a good light craft beer? crossovert (12943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Smells pickly, the taste is light and lifeless, just like a macro light beer, they need to try harder. hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2006
16oz bottle. Hmmm, a micro-light beer, here it goes. Poured a medium golden color with a very small sized white head. Aromas of grain, corn, and light honey. Tastes of grain, honey, and very light citrus. Thin and watery. Why Sprecher Why? Hopefully the drain enjoys it more than I did... BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle from Sprecher’s brewery gift shop in Glendale, WI. Pale gold/yellow pour with a medium white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is grain and apple. Light palate with a fair amount of carbonation. Taste is pretty much just malt/grain, very little else. Not offensive, but not interesting. Worlds better than the macro pale lagers, but also worlds away from a high-quality brew. drowland (8766) - Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Had on tap at the brewpub after a tour of the place. Better than your average American macro, I guess, but far from special.

Pours a clear copper with thin, somewhat weak, white head. The aroma is sweet lightly roasted malts, light dark fruitiness with sweet citrus and grape juice. The flavor starts with a little roasted maltiness but then cascades into a potpourri of fruitiness with cantaloupe, pears, granny smith apples, sweet Concord grape jelly, boysenberry preserves and hints of citrus. Seems like they took a thin amber ale and added lots of fruit juice to it. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Bottle. Poured a clear lighter-golden with a short-lived white head... quite a bit of carbonation rising. Corn, lemon, light vegetal, and cardboard come through in the rather weak aroma. Light-bodied on the palate, with a light pale malt middle and some indistinguishable bitterness around the edges. High carbonation. Flavors of the pale malt, corn, and honey... but nothing stays long b/c of the low initial concentration and the high carbonation. Nothing bad about this one, but nothing exciting or memorable.

Bottle 500 ml CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Appearance: Straight golden ale with smallish fractional top.
Nose : Snappy, crisp malty nose, hint of honey malt. Overall quiet light.
Flavor/Palate : Thin bodied , grainy character with some stickiness at finish. Lacking freshness and clean execution. Bland, lacking refinement. Brewing such light, gentle beer its mot easy task.
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2007 Sampled at Summerfest 2003 as Antler Ale: Not really sure of the style. Dark copper body with a thin off-white head. Very light aroma of malt and bittering hops. Body reminds me much of their amber ale, which is a little too cloyingly bitter with some off-flavors. Kinda tastes like a mix between a good malty microbrew and an American standard. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Had this on draft at the sprecher brewpub in lake Geneva, IL. Light orange pour with sticky white head. Dank and skunked taste. Didn't like it at all
