This is a big beers drinkers light beer, great for Sunday football or a long day of tailgating. No hop flavor and light on the alcohol, very refreshing. It has characteristics of a belgian blonde ale mixed with an american pilsner. Some hints of citrus but no hop finish.

16oz can from Binnys. Pours a crystal clear straw color with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, but not much else. Medium on the palate with medium carbonation. Very mild flavor with traces of malt and hops. At 4.2%, I could drink a few of these.

Tasted on 1/11/11 from a 16oz can purchased at Lush Roscoe. Pours clear golden with a thick and frothy white head that leaves thick and frothy lace. The nose is dominated by the hops which go from apricot to resin, to citrus bitterness, along with just a bit of bread malt. The flavor is once again driven by the hops with a good amount of citrus, bitterness, resin, and fruitiness, with the light bread malt still acting as a backbone. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long bitter hops finish.

Pours light amber with light notes of spice on the nose. A true session style ale that really drniks easy and well with some decent balance of flavors from the mouth to the finish.....A good easy brew.

16 oz can. Soft bready notes reminiscent of a helles. Body has snappy effervescence, light throughout. Biscuity notes are forefront, followed by hop bitterness that is exaggerated by the lightness of it all.

I had this on tap at Half Acre. The beer pours a light murky gold with a decent white head, nothing of note. The aroma is light hops pretty boring. The taste is bad, its a trumped of version of a bud light. Light hop, mostly skunk and a super light feel. Mouthfeel is water and not something I would drink more than half a pint of. Quite disappointing

Pint can from johnbjaeger on BA - thanks! Definitely the least of the beers Iíve had from Half Acre, but itís also clearly intended to be a light and unassuming session brew. Clean straw golden with prickly carbonation, light pear and yeast in the nose. Body is slightly slick, loses character a bit too quickly. And the dry-hopping is only moderately present, leading to a more anonymous beer than Iíd hoped for. Still, decent quaffer.

A light golden ale. It is easy to drink, somewhat flavorful, it definitely has that over some of itís counterparts.

Can [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev, jerc & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a clear pale gold with an average size white head. Aroma and flavour of caramel malt, floral hops and lemon. Average bodied. Not bad.

Open bar glass at Alternatives gala....great treat for an open bar. Definitely a light weight ale; nice color and very mild nose...an excellent session beer....not a hoppy beer whatever the promo....but good sipping material. Had a Daisy Cutter right before, so expectations were high.
