I enjoy this beer pretty much as a go to beer thats decent in almost any situation. Normally I take it with an orange slice but for this particular rating I am going without it. Bottom line, decent but nothing special. Aromas of creamy malt, light touch of wheat and some lemon in there.

Bland overall, nothing that stands out. Not a beer I would actively hunt to have on hand.

Slid flagship beer. One of the original craft beers I had back in the day. Can never go wrong with one of these ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

luttonm (2438) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2014
12oz in Seattle. Hazed light gold, small white head. Macro sweet aroma, rather typical wit spicing. Banana cream, smooth body, sweet and bright. Metallic fruit aftertaste. No thanks

Madsen1635 (326) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle. Hazy pale orange pour with next to no head. Aroma has quite a lot of yeast plus a hint of citrus. Taste is flat and uninspiring. Low carbonation

teorn88 (3031) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2014
Very old backlog rating. 12oz bottle in Philly. It pours a clean straw color with medium white head. Aroma is wheat, grains, grass, citrus. Taste is middle crispy, lightly grainy and grassy. Notes of cereals and citrus. Fairly simple and inoffensive

SmashedSailor (5) - Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2014 does not count
I was at a gas station, and in the mood for something not completely shitty. So, for the extra 4/5 dollars 12 pack, I grabbed something light yet tasty. But I wouldn’t dare add a slice of orange to it. Beer. Doesn’t. Need. Fruit. (Looking at you Corona..take a lesson from Landshark)

RichTheVillan (3531) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle from conglomerate faceless grocery emporium; hazy golden yellow pour, head is unacceptably massive, this craft brewer had squeezed in all the wit essentials, bravo to the clove, bow down to the banana chips, stale gum in abundance.

Have been down the the whole craft beer thing. IPAs, stouts, lagers, porters, big beers. Now a days they are just too much anymore. A nice easy drinking beer like BM is my go to now. Nice and smooth, not too in your face or some over the top crazy mix of stuff. The stuff is usually Nice and fresh too due to its popularity

Pours from a bottle a turbid amber with a thin white head. Aroma slightly appley? Flavor a mild bittersweet, like a faint bitter orange peel, thin in the mouth.
