Background:
My friend Gonzalo was in Florida visiting relatives over the Christmas Holidays and brought me back a few local beers. So the next few reviews will be Florida brews.

Review:
The beer pours a pale straw with yellow hues and a diminishing bright white head.

The nose is modest with some light pale malt aromas with sweet citrus notes. There is little to no hop presence on the nose.

Not a half bad first sip. Sorry, from the looks of this I was expecting something much worse.

The taste starts out with a pale malt sweetness up font, followed by a cleansing effervescence as the beer washes over the tongue in the middle of the sip. The back-end is extremely easy drinking with an effortless swallow. The finish is really nice and refreshing with pale malts and citrus notes. There is very little of a final aftertaste, just a hint of citrus.

This is really a nice beer. Yes, it is extremely light but it does have a nice summer light malt flavor with very refreshing citrus notes on the finish.

I am really enjoying this. It will make a nice refreshing summer picnic beer.

What a great summer session.

I’m not getting that typical lager harshness. This is sweet, refreshing and quite enjoyable.

I realize that here is almost nothing to this style but this is actually quite good with nice pale malt flavors and citrus. I think this is the best light lager that I’ve had.

It is warming a little and it is not picking up any off flavors or harshness. That’s another plus in my book.

What a nice little beer. I would certainly have this again on a hot summer day.

Well, here I am again struggling with a rating. Even though my ratings are by style it is still difficult for me to give a beer like this an A, even though it deserves it by style. OK I just talked myself into it. I’m going to give this an A for a Light Lager.

I can’t believe the beer snob just gave an A to a Pale Lager but compared to everything else that I have had in this style it is an A for sure.

A | Jalehouse Light is an excellent Light Lager with nice pale malt flavors with refreshing citrus notes making it a thirst quenching perfect summer session.
