draft at the Fishers, IN brewpub - Pours yellow with a thin, white, fading head. It has a really mild malt aroma. The flavor is sweet bready malt with a light fruity touch and some mild hops in the finish. It’s light bodied and not bad for what it is.

EithCubes (4702) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Growlered as Indy Blonde, from the Indianapolis branch. Clear golden pour with a sudsy white head. Bland mild aroma. Taste is lightly bitter and hoppy, a little gypsum-y hard water. Pale malts with a little grain, chalk. Mediumish body. Meh, went just fine with pizza.

kassner (1338) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2009
For a light lager, it was very nice, More flavor than the big brands, obvious if not dominant hops to clean the finish and balance the beer, a little deeper in color and some nice lacing.
