"Named Marathon, assumingly for itís ability to go the diatance. The waitress said "itís like Bud Lite". WTF?! Rookie!! Anyway, MUCH better than that pee pee water, but not good at all by SoCal micro standards. Slighly bitter, slightly corny light lager. Meh."

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Listed as "Marathon," but the description is the same as this beer (and only 0.3% difference in ABV). Lightly hazed golden straw pour with a white head. Lemon, grass, and bread. Some yeast, a bit of orange, and water. Bland flavor, lemony, and slightly sweet. Grain, bread, and some grass. Maybe a bit of orange pith bitterness.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not much aroma. Nothing to this beer. Very plain and thin, but not too strainy. Better than regular mass-swill beers a tad.

On tap at the brewery during the ISA-West conference. Pours a cloudy golden hue with a small white head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy. The flavor is your typical fruity Blonde, but with a good bit of hops. Nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and yellow with a lacing white head. Breadish malt aroma. Flavour holds a mild fruity note to the rather dry breadish flavour. A bit wort like. More fruity and tasty into the finish.
