3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy deep honey coloured body with a thick, luscious three centimetre tall off-white head - very creamy and nice. Aroma of pale malt, light lemons and cleanser, pledge, and a hint of herbal and floral hops. Light-bodied; Strong relatively pungent malt note with less than pleasant flavours, some funky grass and herbal notes and not much of anything else to speak of - no complexity, no sweetness, no horrible bitterness - just a slighty decent flavour with not much going on. Aftertaste shows more malt and funk than anything else - okay. Overall, an acceptable beer that doesnít make me want to drink this ever again, but if you are from out of state and havenít seen this before (just like me), definitely try it! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington [State] on 10-February-2013 for US$1.66 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 14-March-2013.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2011 On tap at Blind Tiger with Andy, James, Streets, Baron. Pour is not golden. Itís amber. Head is minimal and aroma is lame, ricey and macro lager. Taste is somewhere between slightly off-putting and okay. Starts off with a quick carbonation blast. Nothing to note on the palate and aftertaste is quick, which is good considering I do not get any tastes that Iíd want to stick around.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Thanks, BrewDad! Pours a crystal clear medium gold. Nice decent creamy white head with plenty of lace. When cold, it has a vacant nose, but after just a minute or two of warming, it shows mild nutty, grassy, earthy, and piney notes. Creamy medium body. Nice nuts, grass, and mild hop on the mid-palate. Very drinkable, and a little more life to it than there seemed to be when cold.

Well first of all this beer looks like Budweiser with less carbonation. It has a bland taste and lacks flavor. I'll definitely pass on this beer again.

You know, the ratings on the site are creeping towards 150,000 and I"m not sure this beer deserves that honorable spot. This is yet another beer I"ve sampled from Dick"s that tastes rather similar to its namesake. (There"s a whole realm of bad humor I am not even about to begin exploring.) I"m traditionally not a fan of blondes, and this is no exception; to begin with, this is way overcarbonated (tastes kind of like tonic water). There are hops in the aroma, but where the hell are they in the flavor? It"s a bit bitter, but I can"t taste much of anything through the metallic flavor from the carbonation. I"ve always had a problem with ordering hot dogs from a restaraunt called Dick"s, but this brewery is creating an association problem for me with their beer as well.
