16 oz can from family. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale, crackery malts, grass, a subtle yeast character, mild fruitiness, pretty much a basic blond, not much to get excited about.

Draft at the source. Slightly hazy, very pale yellow color. Aroma of light straw. Taste is plain lager.

Tmoney99 (12067) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Can. Poured clear golden color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable brew.

16 oz. can at Kruegerís Tavern. Pours a clear light gold with a small white head that lasts as a ring and film. There just isnít a lot going on in this one - pale and crackery malts, straw, metallic notes (maybe thatís my misperception based on the can), faint citrus, and wet grass. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a clean, watery mouthfeel. Easy drinking, but with so many good session IPAs and other better beers in cans now, I donít see myself ever buying this again.

Floback (541) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2015
12-ounce bottle. My first couple attempts at a pour brought mostly foam in the glass. When I finally got some beer, a murky orange/peach-colored body emerged. The nose ceased to provide much character. I picked up faint hints of yeast & citrus. The flavor is just as one-dimensional as the aroma: subtle citrus and some yeast in there. Light body and medium carbonation. I'm not sure if this was simply a bad batch, but this is by far the worst offering by Flat 12 that I've encountered. A shame, because this is a great brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 ounce can, no canning date that I could find. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear straw gold color with about an inch frothy white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Not much to the aroma, the brew smells mostly like sweet and bready malt, along with some light grassy hops. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but thereís also a bit of citrus peel flavor noticeable. To me it mostly just reminds me of a macro lager (but a little better). Mouthfeel/body is light, itís a crisp, easy drinking brew thatís well carbonated. This would probably be good on a hotter day, but unfortunately itís not so good on a 10 degree January day. Iím a fan of Flat 12ís other brews, but this one just doesnít do anything for me. If you can find a single itís worth trying, but at $9.99 a 4-pack Iíd pass on this.

hotstuff (4413) - Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Rated on 7-25-2014 (Can) The appearance is a huge fizzy white head with a short retention, hazy pale yellow body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is lighty malty, fruity and stale food. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is light bodied. This beer leaves a lot to be desired all the way around. It is anything but a crisp and refreshing ale.

12 ounce bottle from Keg Liquors. Golden in color. Light spice hop aroma and taste. Pretty light taste overall.

Aroma is citrus, lemon and mild sweetness and funk. The flavor is lemon/citrus, fruit, mild sweetness, fruit peel and a medium tart/tangy finish.

patrick767 (3728) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2014
bottle - Pours hazy and very pale yellow with a big, billowy white, lasting head. It takes awhile to get anything in the aroma other than that particular over-carbonated smell. Finally some mild malt and a slightly fruity smell come through. The flavor is of grainy malt and mild, bittering hops. Itís light bodied and drinkable enough, but itís not really my thing.
