Drinkable, but then again so is water. And yellow water is what this most resembled. A little hint of honey, but other than that I couldn't find much to get excited about.

Pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma of sweet malts and very light honey. Taste of next to nothing but honey and sweet malted accented water. Thin, weak and bland, but Iím not a big fan of this style.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Light golden pour with a pretty boring taste of light honey and light malt. Tasted a little watery and overall could use more taste and body. Wonít buy this one again.

Bottle. Slightly hazy straw colow with a somewhat thin white head. Light grass, dry honey and touch of DMS(cream corn) in the aroma. Hazelnut flavors and touch of dry malt. I've had this on tap before and found it more enjoyable than this sample, but maybe it was the best choice out of a bunch of macros.. I'll rerate if a fresher sample warrants.

Dorwart (2361) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Thin white head off fine bubbles. Vegetal notes and some sweet malts. Maybe some honey in there. Medium gold in color. Thin watery flavor with some more sweetness and a bit of bready malts. Pretty thin in many ways. Dry pasty finish and lacking flavor and any depth. While not offensive in any way, not worth the time.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Pale straw color,small white head that faded quite quickly.Malty aroma with a mild honey note,4 kinds of hops and none are detectable in the aroma,Interesting.There is a fairly sweet side to the aroma as well.Light malty taste,sweet with only a light honey presence.The after taste is mild sweet malt with very nearly no honey presence,and the hops still haven't shown up for the party.Watery feel kind of macroish in many ways.Is this a good brew no,average at best it is fairly drinkable but little else as far as goodness goes.

A new line for my grocery store, thought Iíd try it since it is a regional brewery. Keepiní it local, yo. Poured clear, light amber, with no head. Slight honey aroma with hint of yeast. Could barely taste the honey over the fizzy carbonation. I LUVS me some hops, didnít taste a single one. I honestly felt bloated after 8 oz. After I let the beer breathe for about 45 minutes, the fizzy went away and the honey taste became more pronounced. I cant recommend this, will probably hide it in cooler at a party.

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

Iím aware that this is supposed to be a lighter beer, but that doesnít change how bad it was. Virtually no aroma, taste, or feel. Will not be having again.
