Looks great in the glass, disappoints in the mouth. I got really excited after pouring this, the frothy head and lovely bubbles are pleasant to look at. But mouthfeel is so bland, the whole experience is worse for the false hope that this is the whole package. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home. Deep golden pour with a chunky white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of doughy malts and sweet floral. Light bodied, clean, almost imperceptible hopping, some sweet tropical fruit nuances - pineapple. Clean finish. No complexity.

callmemickey (3703) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Lightly hazy golden colored body, thin off-white head, sparse lacing. Lightly sweet stonefruits, biscuity malts, and crackers. Soft florals and a touch of citrus. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation. Semi-sweet throughout. Rounded finish.

Beerathon (1596) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2014
A nicely balanced blonde ale with subtle hop character to go along with a semi sweet malt bill. Finishes with a corn like sweetness.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass (bar pour) back in a Delaware seafood joint. The appearance was a decent looking hazy yellow to somewhat golden color with a light transparency allowing some carbonation to be seen rising. There was a thin white head that barely allowed any lacing once it started to die. The smell had some toasty sort of sweet corn notes. It seemed slightly grassy and herbal. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this one sat fairly light and sessionable. Overall, I had a couple of these and ended up having it with some fried oysters and that went extremely well.

Bricks (763) - Delaware, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Very clear golden color, fizzy white head. Smells of simple straw. Malty simple taste, with a hint of apple?

Bottle. Pours a yellow golden color with nice honey crisp flavor. Taste is bready with some banana. Interesting flavor but nothing special

jefcon (1514) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Straw aromas, bright golden hops, and some funky malt. Accordingly, the front end of this beer is fruity and hoppy, but the finish is drying and off. Slight minerality, pepper.
