4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2012 Crisp golden/orange color, poured with a decent head that kept well. Smooth, refreshing, not too hoppy, very drinkable. if possible, tastes better on tap than out of a bottle. Good first beer! Just had this again. It’s gotten better.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at the Milwaukee Ale House. I ordered it with buffalo wings, as I was told that they pair up well from a friend. Poured a cloudy golden with an orange tint. Above average head that kept. Smelled of yeast and some citrus. Full hoppy flavor, especially for a lager, but was not filling and went down smooth. At only about 4% ABV having a couple is not a problem. Great first brew, highly recommended!

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 I recently tried a couple of Bison Blondes on tap at Dairyland Greyhound Park. It is crisp like a lager but with a hop level more like most ales.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy golden colour with a full white head. Aroma is sort of yeasty, wheat, honey and tropical fruit. Taste is creamy, fruit forward with a pretty strong malt taste throughout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden with a medium off-white head. Aroma of corn, yeast and light honey. Mild flavor of honey, corn. Finishes a bit strange with a chalky finish, but overall a good effort for a pale lager.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2009 Found this brand new brew at a tasting in Milwaukee. They ran out it very quickly. Bright orange straw color. Good full head. Nice carbination. Lots of character. Not very hoppy, Finish was good, but not great. Overall, the best new beer at the event. I can only find it on tap though. Just had this again in December. The best pale lager made in Wisconsin, maybe the US.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color with a moderate white head. Lightly toasted malt, dough, corn syrup and some grassy hops in the aromas. Light pale malt sweetness in the start. Mild dough and yeast components. Quite clean. A light toasted malt flavor in the finish and linger. A somewhat unassuming lager, yet you can tell there is some soul in this one. A solid starter brew for a new brewery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House. Poured clear bright golden with a medium cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up corn, honey, and fresh floral notes.. soft and quite well-executed. The flavor had dried honey and caramel at the core with low-to-moderate floral bitterness surrounding.. sweet honey and a touch of corn on the short finish. Light-bodied with decent balance.. medium carbonation.. refreshing.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 Second time I had this and rated it. This time I purchased it in bottles at Rays. This is one of the best lagers made in Wisconsin. The folks at Milwaukee Brewing have outdone themselves. The taste was crisp, with fruity tones and a very dry finish.

Cracker-like pale malts and grassily bitter hops are teh foundation for appley esters and grassy hop flavor; some husk astringency show up in the finish. A solid, hoppy lager. Described at the brewpub as a "light lager".
