For what this was, it wasn’t bad. Light and crisp with a surprising depth of malt presence.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a clear yellow straw color with plenty of visible carbonation bubbles and a nice white head. The nose brings some light grain and not too much else. No vegetables or cardboard, which is a plus here. Taste is similar with mild grain. Light body and really nice drinkability, especially when compared against its "peers."

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. It’s 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 couldn’t say of any of their other beers, even if I would have gone for another one of them over this for another round.

Pours yellow with a white head. Smells of apples and lightly breaddy. Tastes semi sweet and crisp with some light floral hints on the finish.

MadRobin (1893) - 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

aracauna (3055) - Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2006
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.

GoBlue (104) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Very clear yellow color with disappating head. Aroma is bready and grainy with maybe a hint of spice. Flavor is grainy and clean. Well made example of a style difficult to keep as clean as this beer was

On tap at the District Chophouse. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Esters, grain, a touch of citrus. Toasty grain, buttered popcorn. Finishes up with some light bitterness and a bunch of grain.
