tmongoose (1203) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 23, 2014
26oz can shared. Poured slightly hazy yellow with a grassy straw almost baby piss diaper aroma. Flavor is straw, bread, yeast, and corn. Not a fan plain and simple.

16 oz draft pours a hazy golden with a white heat. Aroma of malts, bread and grass. Taste is malts and dough.

574deadzone (994) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Pours a hazy straw golden with a thick eggshell cap that settles slowly and leaves some foamy, dripping lace. Subtle nose involves dashes of sweet malt (or corn), light spice, and mint. Lightly sweet, lighter-ly bitter. Light body, softer carb, a touch oily, with a twangy husky light veggie finish. Poundable? Sure. My style? Not at all. Personally, not sure why they went away from the Upside Down Blonde in favor of this aside from trying to hit an even wider audience (light beer drinkers, people who fear any and all hops). Lame.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Sample at Twenty Tap. Clear yellow-gold color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, toasted malt and a bit of citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

DrSilverworm (6010) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2014
16oz can, from Big Red Liquors in Indianapolis. Clear pale yellow color. Thin white head. Leaves good, thicker spreads of lace. Medium body. Good, smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Very smooth and easy drinking. Hammer Down, indeed. Good bready white cracker malt. Nice spicy grassy hop aroma, some citrus. Good bigger bitter taste, nice bit of zest. Light sweet. Awesome golden ale. Pretty much exactly what I’m looking for for this style. Super refreshing and satisfying.

b3shine (5191) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells doughy and yeasty with a touch of hops. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel that’s fairly light on the palate. A bit of tropical fruit too. Mild, but pleasant.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draft on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a nice pale straw hue, very light, decent haziness, dulled champagne glow. A forthy whitish head atop laces ok, dies to a brighter white ring, laces small. Aromas are grainy, clean, a nit of white grape. Straw, gentle dust, cereal grains. Mellow spice. Initial is gentle white grape, grainy malt, bready malt. Touches of cereal grain, straw. Middle is gentle tartness, grainy, bit of lemon. Cleaner mellow tart and dry backend shows some spritzy carbonation, gentle straw, grainy malts. Clean, dry finish. Pretty interesting and different. I enjoyed this. The white grape element sold me.

queenholly (2859) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Growler. Very light malty aroma. Slightly hazy yellow with a minimal white head. Solid barley malt flavor. Light body, soft carbonation.

Block (1319) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2013
One of the lighter beers I had at Flat 12. Light pour with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet of malts. Flavor is light with a bit of bread and yeast.

LilBeerDoctor (3422) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy bright yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt, jam, light fruit. Flavor of light pale malts, bready malt, and sweet fruit in the finish. Your simple, basic golden ale. Easy to drink and refreshing on a hot day. 6/4/7/4/14 (3.5/5)
