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

beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Not much flavor. For those who compare it to Bud or some other yellow American pisswater, Iíd say that it notably lacks the flavors of corn and grass. But other than some malt sweetness, thereís not much here.

Very thin, I thought this was their version of Bud Light. Not good at all. I didnít think any of their beers had much of an aroma.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2007
Good label but the beer is quite thin with little flavour. Some malts, a touch of sweetness and enough to wet the tongue.

Had this one at the brewpub in Schaumburg, Illinois, marketed as "Chicago Blonde." Bright yellow pour with a fluffy white head, light maltiness with a little citrus, balanced and light. The least impressive I tried.
