cheap (4173) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2014
From a can smell simply like good beer, almost cabbage like some lagers but not. Pale yellow. First taste is fairly smooth, has a tad of a medicinal feel to it. Decent carbonation but not really lively as stated in the description. Does lack many ill ale attributes that Iíve become familiar with and Iím thankful for that. Not too bad overall.

Too light for my taste, but a good thirst-quenching beer. The label doesnít work for me, itís kitschy old wild west stuff, probably from the Consolidated Western Kitsch Factory that seems to supply all the souvenir shops.

old notes here, not an old beer, or atleast it seemed fresh. golden in color with a better than expected sweet and floral nose. the flavor is pretty one dimensional but crisp and clean."

Pailhead (5037) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of light cereal/grainy notes with a touch of honey. Itís a transparent gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is a solid sheet of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of honey. The finish has light grain, cereal, grass, and a hint of lemon peel. Itís light bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

12 oz. Clear orange-golden with a lasting film of cream. Aroma of spicy dry grass, grain and sourish caramel apple. Tastes of toasted cereal, honey, sourish apple and dry grass. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and is to the sweet side.
