Actual Photon

Posted: June 5, 2017 in Light Lager, Reviews, The Actual Brewing Co.

I was looking for a beer that was sessionable while hanging out at the bar. This beer looked like the perfect selection for me before I headed over to dinner. Since I was working so early, I ended up going to dinner at 4:30 or 5 PM most days. The good thing about that was that the restaurants were rarely crowded at that time.

ABV: 3.2%

Style: Light Lager

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This dazzling light lager has a dual nature: a wave of golden flavor entangled with a quantum of noble hops. A challenge to brew, but a cinch to drink, this beer moves at precisely the speed of itself.”

Random: This beer is only 96 calories. I bet it competes well with macros.

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly. The body was a clear, straw yellow with generous carbonation. The nose was light with grain and a corn-like sweetness. I kept searching for more notes in the scent, but I couldn’t pick anything up. The taste was also light and crisp with some corn and grain sweetness. It had a touch of grass and then went into bready sweetness as well. The body was very light with a lot of carbonation. The finish was quick and sweet. This beer was very light and made for a great session beer. It didn’t bring a huge amount of flavor, but I wasn’t expecting that much from it. If you find yourself in Ohio, give this a shot.
