Had the sampler, this one was pale with a white head. Aroma is of grain and a subtle hoppyness. Taste is malt and grain with a little sweetness.

On tap at Brewery. Light color, minimal head. Crisp European hop aroma and bright refreshing flavor. Very easy to drink and clean. A great beer for such a hot day.

On tap at Cool Springs. Dry and crisp with a nice background grain flavor. Touch of fruit to the background along with mild hops.

Clear straw color, no head, no lace. So light, taste doesn’t enter until mid-way through the palate. Light malt shows, but can’t sustain through the finish, which nearly turns to water aided by slight carbonation bittering. Very light and unassuming. Almost not a beer. Perhaps intended for the non-drinker who wants something that can be tolerated.

musinj6 (390) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Pours a clear golden with small head and minimal lacing. Light sweet taste with aromas of tropical fruit and lightly toasted malt. Mildly astringent. Virtually no hop aromas with crisp short finish with a little tartness. Light carbonation thin mouthfeel . Very drinkeable but nothing to write home about.

Dogbrick (7952) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear golden color with a medium thin and fizzy white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of bready malt and mild hops. Light body with a slightly bitter grassy hops character and sweet malt in the background. Touches of fruit too. The finish is mildly hoppy and short. Just average overall.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2012
Clear light yellow color that is almost see-through. Slight bread notes on the nose along with minimal metalic aspects. Crisp and clean up front with a nice roundness. Slight lingering bitter metalic feel. Good for the style.

Draft. Yellow pour with a white top. Scent is sweet malts. Taste is same with some spice.

Sorry to give this a bad review, but this must be an old batch. Diacetyl, olive oil, lime sourness, butter. Color is nice though, clear with very active bubbles, golden wheat color.
