Crisp watery yellow with a soupy head. The aroma is slight. The flavor has a bit of a burst of straw malt. Not too much in the way of hops. A bit of fruit.

For what this was, it wasnít bad. Light and crisp with a surprising depth of malt presence.

Gold Color with White Skin. No Aroma to Speak Of... Sweet Grains...Light Dry Aftertaste...Just a Basic Light Lager.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Straw yellow with a small head and some random floating foam. Very light aroma of slight sulpher, clean, light pale malt sweetness, and very faint hops. Light pale malt and grain flavor, light honey sweetness, and a light hop snap that you really have to pay attention to pick up. Light bodied and crisp feel, yet not harshly carbonated like you would expect from a macro version of the style. Itís sad to say it, but this was the standout of the sampler. Still not a beer that I would get again, but damn, its clean and well done for the style, something that I couldnít say of any of their other beers, even if I would have gone for another one of them over this for another round.

MadRobin (1989) - Silver Spring, USA - APR 24, 2013
On tap 5 oz. sample at the District Chophouse & Brewer in downtown Washington, DC. Clear, pale yellow-straw color with a near white head and very good lacing. Very mild aroma of grain. Taste of light caramel, grain and mild floral hops. Medium/light body and medium/high carbonation. Very nice for a light beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2006
At District ChopHouse DC. Pours clear golden with a white head. Very grainy, slightly sour and musty aroma. Flavor of spent grain, old un-fresh hops,with notes of hay, light lemon and a tinge of sourness. Lacking sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Not that good at all.

haddon90 (1470) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Light, pale golden color with not much of a head. Light aroma with mild malt. Pretty light, watered down taste. An easy beer to have in the summertime...but that's about it.

Block (1432) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2011
This beer was to light. Pale pour with a faint grassy aroma. Flavor was grassy and didnít work well with the relatively high alcohol content for the body.
