COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It is designed to attract the beginning micro beer drinker. The addition of Willamette and Cascade hops gives this ale a crisp, clean character that is not challenging to a novice. This beer is enjoyed by experienced micro drinkers because of its character.

This beer didn’t really taste of anything. It was very bland in all aspects. Not foul or bad tasting, so it does not warrant a horrible rating; but there isn’t much here to speak of.

This draft brew from the brewery in Indianapolis poured a small head of fine to medium sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles. The body was softly carbonated transparent yellow colored. The aroma was a typical malt hop one. The mouth feel was tingly mildly hopped and somewhat metallic. The flavor was clear clean crisp with mild hops.

hotstuff (4762) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 23, 2004
On tap at the Ram in downtown Indianapolis. Also called Indy Blonde at this location. It poured a small sized white head and had fine-small sized bubbles that fully diminished. The body was transparent and carbonated with a yellow hue. The nose was malty and somewhat sweet as was the flavor. Nothing big here. The mouthfeel was smooth and somewhat on the watery and thin side. The texture was light and the lacing was fair.

Dogbrick (10870) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2004
From a sampler at the Indy location: Called "Indy Blonde" at this locale. This is standard stuff here. Light golden color with a small fizzy head. Light hops aroma. Light and crisp body with a run-of-the-mill watery hops flavor. The finish is kind of weak too. Not really worth your time.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Schaumburg Illinois. Bland, watery, corn-syrupy, very smooth, hop-free, worse than the Light.

Braudog (6196) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2003
Cloudy yellow beer. It's lightly biting and citric-sweet. This is thirst-quenching, almost soda-like. Average.

(Draught) Okay, but nothing too exciting. Poured a light golden color with a thin white head.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 12, 2003
ehh, this wasn't too great. I'm not fond of blondes (the beers, not the women). this was a very mild with a soapy aftertaste. had this one while catfishin fishing on the snake river in a boat, so you can't complain.

This beer sucks, nothing more really to say about it then that. Pale fizzy in color and head. Nothing to it at all.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Fort Collins Brew Fest 2003: For the most part, without character. I suppose the description is right, in that novice beer drinkers won't be put off by strong flavors.
