Blairgus (4169) - California, USA - JUN 16, 2015
16 June 2015, tap at Bonaventure Brewing Co. Listed as Marathon. Pale yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is sweet straw malt. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Sweet cereal malt with some grassy hops. Meh.

"Named Marathon, assumingly for it’s ability to go the diatance. The waitress said "it’s 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."

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 4, 2013
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.

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.

Ungstrup (34643) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. A light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt, grass, and yeast. The flavor is sweet wtih notes of malt, grain, straw, and citrus, leading to a dry grainy finish.

yespr (40811) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2008
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.
