2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Schaumburg, IL) Draft... DLD’08... Clear light yellow ale with a large wispy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is of warm mash and earthy hops. Light-bodied and very effervescent. Like the aroma, the grainy flavor presents notes of lightly sweet mash and gentle, spicy, earthy hop bitterness. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter, and then dry.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light sweet aroma. Yellow colored easy drinking blonde ale. A little light sweet grain with a pleasant crisp finish. Well made, but boring.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap. Bit more yellow color than the light beer. Some gold in it. Very mild beer. Almost no smell, maybe some wheat and a bit of corn. Taste is soft and less harsh than the light without that nasty cardboard / paper taste. Some wheat and oretty refreshing. Decent lacing.

Had at Humperdinks on Greenville. Listed as Texas Blonde. Same appearance as the light. A bit more lacing maybe. No smell or taste really, very generic. Fizzy.

Sample glass @ C I Shenanigans. Crystal gold. Tight head. No real scent. Tastes much like a light lager. Inoffensive and clean.

Had it on tap at the RAM. It wasn’t anything I’d buy agian, or even after trying a sample. (Which is what I had, a sample from their sampler)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not much flavor. For those who compare it to Bud or some other yellow American pisswater, I’d say that it notably lacks the flavors of corn and grass. But other than some malt sweetness, there’s not much here.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very thin, I thought this was their version of Bud Light. Not good at all. I didn’t think any of their beers had much of an aroma.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Good label but the beer is quite thin with little flavour. Some malts, a touch of sweetness and enough to wet the tongue.
