Not much. Smell, taste, finish, or anything. Clear and gold. Thin. Very light malt flavor mingles with an odd hop character. This one is on my don’t bother list.

trapped (899) - New York City, TURKEY - DEC 22, 2014
Draught. Slightly hazy dark yellow with small white foamy head, faint honey aroma, sweetish taste with honey flavor, medium carbonation, abrupt finish. Nice example of the genre.

hfmejias (818) - Dover, Delaware, USA - OCT 18, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured lightly hazy, yellow, medium white head that left some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grains, malts and some hops. Taste is consistent, some cereal notes and some malts, slightly hoppy. Quite drinkable refreshing, does the job right.

Aroma is a weak skunky selection for this brew. Flavor is not so skunky though. Not a good beer at all.

Transfer from BA review on 9-2-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a one finger white head. The head fades very fast to leave a very light level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is light and is of a bready smell mixed with a light caramel smell. Taste – The taste begins of a malty breadiness mixed with a light caramel flavor. As the flavor advances some lighter earthy and herbal hops and a corn sweetness come to the tongue. These flavors mix with the bread and caramel to take the taste to its end. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light with a higher level of carbonation. It makes it rather drinkable and is good for the style. Overall – OK, but nothing special here.

Bottled. Gold pour white head. Some straw and light fruits. OK but not too charismatic.

dliberto (195) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is hay, corn, and a trace amount of lemon. Taste is a little grassy, with focus on bread. Light body crisp beer. Okay, not my favorite style

Straw yellow. Finger of white head. I had to assume it was a lager from the aroma, which is more crisp and light. Touch of that lemon-zing. The flavor is actually pretty good for a lager. It’s got a touch of honey, with sweeter barley malts. The hop is very subtle, strictly for accent/balance purposes. Creamy feel, very thick. THAT part isn’t lagery. It’s like some kind of lager/ale hybrid. It’s flavorful but also rather refreshing. Not nearly as horrible as I thought it would be!

transparent gold, fizzy white head, decent lacing. Nose is dusty grain with light syrup sweetness. Grainy metallic flavor, light estery but decent dryness.
