Thin head. Really nothing to this beer: no taste no smell. The best I could come up with is "Itís wet." Have fun drinking a glass of yellow water.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden- yellow with thin white head that laced the glass. Sprucy hop aroma and flavor with a dry cereal grain malt taste. Light and refreshing.

Gr0ve (2173) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear and really light golden colour. Perhaps a little darker than their pilsener. Subdued hop aroma. Malty sweet aromas. Medium-bodied and lightly sweet on the palate. Finishes a bit dry. Some bitterness in the finish. Low in carbonation.

On tap @ C.B. Potts Broomfield poured a clear pale yellow with a small lasting white head. Aromas of straw and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, bread and a hint of citrus with a crisp clean finish.

very easy to drink, seemed almost like a light, on draft, wouldnít seek it out, not sure what "made it famous"

I was talking to a custmer who insisted I had to drive down the street from his place and try the best beer he ever had...OK!?! So much for word of mouth. Not horrible, but SO VERY bland. To each his own, I guess.

Rating for Big Horn Chicago Blonde

This one gets a 4 for appearance... RAM has a tendency to over-frost their glasses and, in my case, a giant iceberg detached itself from the bottom of my glass and floated slowly up into the head. It was like watching "Titanic"! Otherwise, it was a medium golden, frost-hazed body under a holding, creamy, 1cm film. Aroma and flavor was nutty & bitter. A sweet middle flavor led the way to light hops for a refreshing finish. Smooth with a touch of crisp.
