On tap @ C.B. Potts, Greenwood Village, CO. Clear straw yellow hue, minimal white bubbly head. Couldnt smell anything. Tasted like rye, corn, and yeast. Not good. Crisp and refreshing, just lacking good taste. It was basically like Bud Light just with more body.

Well, at least these folks admit that their crappy blond is aimed at being something inoffensive to the Budweiser drinker. Itís perfectly clear and headless w/ sort of a toasty malt character. The carbonation is firm and this is light bodied. I will say, to its credit, there is nothing really off about this which is something you see a lot of in light brewpub ales so kudos for that.

Strykzone (4901) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Sampled at the Indy brewpub. Almost as clear as water with a slightly golden hue. No head. Aroma so light it is indistinguishable. Some malt in the flavor (or maybe it was the fried pickle chips). There just isnít much going on.
