Light aroma of corn, no carbonation, very light pils color, clear, light and crisp. No sweetness at all. Very balanced!

BVery (6965) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Tap at the Schaumburg IL location. For a simple accessible blonde for the masses at a chain brewpub, this does not suck like many do. Clear pale gold pour with no head. Fairly sweet grain aroma and taste. Crisp palate.

"gotta go against the grain here. rarely if ever will i give a blonde a super high score, but if it scores anywhere near the "better" bigger styles, that’s a plus, and I thought that (for a blonde) this beer was quite good. crisp, with a nice cascade hop finish. everything but the thin feel was above average." two years later i see what all the negativity is about. totally different beer. 2.2-3.2. sigh...

Draft at Humperdinks in Arlington. Very pale yellow, no head or lacing. No detectable aroma. Plain bitter taste. Throw this one back.

nuplastikk (4705) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2014
A pretty clean house light beer. Some dry, earthy clusterish hop tones. A touch too sweet, sugary for the style. Not the kind of beer I’d ever revisit, very macro-straightforward.

maxwelldeux (3801) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Draught in a flight at the pub. Pours a very clear golden color. Nose has some wheat on there, with some light citrus elements coming through. Felt very smooth, like cream. Taste was very light, and just had a few grains in there. Meh.

Beergeek23322 (2480) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2013
12/15/2013. On Tap. Pale yellow with a white head. Light malty aromas with not a whole lot going on. Very light in flavor and way too watery. Boring brew.

arminjewell (6433) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewpub, clear yellow pour with thin white head, aroma has slight grain, biscuit, bread, slight clove, touch of spice, pretty nondescript. Taste is a mix of slight grass, biscuit, vanilla, hints of honey, clove, fruit notes, touch of spice, finishing bitter, clean, slightly dry.

Syzzer (596) - Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Enjoyed on tap at Ram restaurant/brewery @ the bar. The color is a clear yellow with a light white head that dissipates. Flavor is a crisp slight citrusy-vague bread. Not a lot of flavor, ok -easy drinking blonde. Suck it down. 5.7 BD
