omhper (19307) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2005
Draught at the brewpub. Pale yellow. Strong disturbing vegetable aroma. Sweet, fruity and light bodied. No bitterness. Why does a good brewpub bother to make a poor imitation of macroswill?

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
Straw colour. Slightly grainy nose with a hint of pale malt. Fairly sweet palate with fresh grain. Quick, slightly watery finish. OK for what it is.

Tmoney99 (10544) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Draft sample. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Medium balancecd aroma. Light to medium body with a thin smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Soft beer.

Lubiere (9865) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2013
A blonde lager with a thin white head. INnaroma, a nice chalky biscuit malt with light mineral notes. In mouth, a light watery ale with chalky malt and sweetish notes, grassy hops, s0-so. On tap at brewpub, Feb. 14 2013.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Had as part of their beer sampler. Pretty typical light beer. Better than a Bud, but not a whole lot. Worth trying once and only once. Light yellow, smells of slight malt or grain. Taste is very watery.

hopscotch (9038) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Draft... Clear straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is grainy with mild notes of spent mash and ethanal. Sweet, grainy flavor. Almost medium-bodied and lightly creamy with medium carbonation. Sweet, grainy, boiled mash finish.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Delicate citrusy, herbal hops precede a surprisingly lascive cereal return. A well-crafted lager for the brewpub’s "American Light" replacement? Kudos to them!

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A clinging veil of foam covers the commercial golden clarity.
-Body is well-malted, though somewhat not helped by the fizzy carbonation.
-The spicy hops develop an intricate nose.
-This has to have improved since the first raters tried it.

On tap at the brewpub.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Some how missed entering this rating a few months back. Pours watery clear gold with thin white head. The very mild aroma has notes of grainy and sweet malts and little else. The taste feels thin bringing in mild tangy acidic notes and equally mild grainy malts. Behind those notes I get very sweet maltiness, mild floral hops and spice hops that seem to surface about midway. It ends sweet and mildly grainy.

On draft @ Big Bear. Pour a clear gold with soapy white head. Nose is bread, corn, water, some sweetness, grass, and hops. Flavor is similar with a light body, lager finish, and more water. It is a safe beer. I guess you need beers that appeal to macro drinkers...
