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.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2007
On tap at Ram - Wheeling, IL as "Chicago Blonde". Poured a clear, very bright golden with a short white head... dusting and a ring. Aroma was light and bready with an aire of lemon.. solid for the style. Flavor had an almost tangy bready base with hints of lemon and some herbal bitterness.. light and pleasant. Light-bodied.. a bit dry on the back half and quite refreshing.

charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Golden in color with a muted spicy hop aroma. Fairly bland up-front with the spicy, citrus flavors following it up.

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.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Light aroma of corn, no carbonation, very light pils color, clear, light and crisp. No sweetness at all. Very balanced!

BVery (9503) - Plymouth, 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.

mcberko (14023) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a clear dull blonde with a small with head. Nose brings out straw and stale bready malt. Flavour brings out cereal malt, some straw and a light sweetness. There’s nothing wrong with this. Clean and drinkable, just unexciting.

Homer321 (4177) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Draft at source. Nose is mostly grainy malt with not much else. Pour is bright clear yellow with small white head that laces well. Taste is pretty bland with just a touch of bitterness. Pretty boring.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2012
On tap at Schaumburg location, pours a pale yellow with a very thin head, the aroma is of mainly grain and corn, a little bit of fruit in the finish but the metallic finish really takes over, meh.

@ RAM Chicago. Pale yellow, small white foam ring. Malty aroma and taste, quite fresh actually. (Chicago 201510)
