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)

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.

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.

On tap in a very well-priced sampler. Mild nose with hints of lemon. Light head, pale clear yellow color. Crisp bready flavor. Overall mild.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours hazy yellow with thin white head. Faint malt nose. Grainy, thin flavor, almost like a pale lager but with a bit of floral hops. Light bodied but not watery. Faint bitter finish. Neh.
