COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American pale ale, blonde in color, reminiscent of the traditional continental pilsners, with a distinctive personality derived from a mixture of choice malts and a hint of wheat. Finished with Czechoslovakian Saaz hops for a clean, refreshing taste with a pronounced hop aroma.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Gold, thin white head. Soft yeasty floral nose with a faint citric undercurrent. Flavor is balanced with further notes of bready florals and sweet citric notes throughout. Light bodied, soft carbonation, light sweet finish. Drinkable, but honestly would never re-visit...

Aurelius (4199) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Tartish, mopwater aroma -- lightly chemical. Bright yellow-gold. Light western hops, light citrus, ale yeast, lightly sweet and tart. Finish is tart and moderately astringent. Light body. Bleh.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 3, 2006
On tap-pours a clear golden color w/a small white head. Sweet malt aroma. Crisp. clean, hop flavor up front-but not overpoweringly so. Has some nice effervesence to it & a little bite. Tastes a little like a wheat/pilsner combo-if that even makes sense! Spicy finish, enjoyable, could definitely drink a few of these sitting in this bar.

themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Definate hoppy character but unrefined. Too much wheat/grass going on here to give it any distinction. Needs a lot of work.
