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.

On tap at the Big Horn Brewery in Rosemont, IL. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a thin white head that dissolves to a fine film. Leaves behind a fine lacing. Aroma of light citrus, young barley malt, with a touch of sugar malt. Taste is lightly carbonated, light bodied with a hint of pine hop aftertaste. Finish is clean and crisp.

Sampled Draft: Pours a golden straw with a smaller white head. Mild nose of malt, taste is also a lighter version with malt, wheat, and barley a hint of hops. Good for the light beer drinker... perhaps.
