nuplastikk (4697) - 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.

Ughsmash (7181) - 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.

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

BVery (6939) - 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.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2009
On tap in Denver, Co. Pours a pale golden with a thin white head that dissaptes quickly. Not much in the aroma and not much in the flavor. Rather bland.

cbfobes (2340) - Quad Cities, Iowa, 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.
