UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 I would have thought I was drinking one of the better macro-lagers had I not watched the barmaid pour the drink. Yellow in color with lots of tight carbonation and a small fizzy white head, this had no discernable aroma. It’s got a sweet bready taste with a clean finish. A pint is not worth $4.00.

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.

Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Sampled at the Indy brewpub. Almost as clear as water with a slightly golden hue. No head. Aroma so light it is indistinguishable. Some malt in the flavor (or maybe it was the fried pickle chips). There just isn’t much going on.

Growlered as Indy Blonde, from the Indianapolis branch. Clear golden pour with a sudsy white head. Bland mild aroma. Taste is lightly bitter and hoppy, a little gypsum-y hard water. Pale malts with a little grain, chalk. Mediumish body. Meh, went just fine with pizza.
