bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Bottle from Beer Geek. Amber tinged golden color with a disappearing white head. Aroma is rather citrus. Light bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is pale malt with mild citrus hop. It’s not really sweet, but there is a touch of honey flavor. Finishes more dry than not. Refreshing.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Picked this one up from my trip out to Milawaukee. Poured a light and slightly cloudy yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas of citrus, light flowers and sweet malts. Bready tasting with a light sweetness to it. If theres honey in this one, it is more apparent in the aroma. Thin and watery body.

12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s West Madison. Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a large white frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of honey, grain and very faint hops. The taste is cereal grains, honey, faint nuts and hops. Thin-medium bodied.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Pours a clear bright golden with a thin covering of wispy white head. Slightly earthy, grassy, and mild pale malty aroma has a hint of floral honey. Body starts with an airy carbonation, giving way to some cardboard and a fairly bland, bittersweet body with lots of buttery diacetyl character. Finishes thin and watery, with very little lingering flavor (thank goodness). I’ll admit this is definitely not one of my favorite styles, but this beer could be done a lot better than it is.

Ughsmash (7087) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with a dusting of white head. Aroma was of heavy pineapple and honey sweetness.. somewhat juicy and intriguing. Dry, grainy wheat and honey in the flavor.. sweet.. vegetal finish wasn’t so good.. some pineapple bitterness across the middle. Dry on the palate with a rather ugly feel to it.. watery middle.

Just some below-average craft brew swill. It is light with a touch of diacetyl and malty sweetness.

after4ever (6059) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2006 12-ounce bottle. Pours gold with a medium-sized, short-lived white head. There’s almost nothing going on here--neutral aroma, and essentially a flavorless body. Well balanced carbonation; not fizzy or raw.
