COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American-style ale has been one of our most popular; appealing to regional tastes for a medium-bodied beer with full ale taste and delicate hops flavor.

Had this one on draught in Wausau, Wisconsin. Dark yellow pour with a thin head that dissipated rapidly, a very nice blend of sweet, malty and bitter. This one doesnít look like much but itís very good.

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 28, 2008
On tap at the Escanaba brewpub. Light lemon sour malt aroma. Pours a very pale lemon yellow. Rim in white. Flavor is a classic salty, grainy, lightly chewy malt backed with a bit of metallic/grassy hop flavor. Very low key, but clean, which I appreciate. This is actually a decent golden, with nice drinkability, crisp malt character and refreshing dry hop balance. Nothing really stands out but itís a decent version. Finishes on a lightly sweet citrus hop bite and then closes out cleanly. Rather hoppy for the style actually and I think thatís what makes it work. Fresh, bright, clean. A good blonde.

Sammy (8095) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
Very light colour with lace and a bit of head. Fresh crisp and dry. Light mouthfeel. Hoppy golden and tasty malt profile. Popular, as I think this is whatís offered as a macro brew repalcement.. Lager like but with hops. A

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2007
On tap at the restaurant/brewpub in Escanaba. Clear straw body, medium off-white head. Grassy nose. Grassy, spicy, floral hops body with a crackery bite, quite full-flavored for the style. The bready malt features a touch of lemon. Dry, firm, bitter hops finish. Spritzy. Refreshing.

Since this dump (Hereford & Hops brewpub) doesnít serve Blatz, I usually consume this swill when Iím at the H&H. Not great. Not bad. Just OK. Does not fill you with the "warm fuzzies" like a case of Blatz will. Believe it.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the Wausau brewpub on 6/24/07: Pours a transparent bright golden with a clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of faintly sweet malt and some fairly fresh floral hops. Body is lightly grainy and pale malty sweet with some earthy bittering hoppy balance toward a crisp finish. A pretty decent blonde ale.

Nate (3556) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On tap. Mild bitter lemon smell, with some beany hoppiness and a bit of pils malt. Dull golden-yellow clear with big foamy white lacing head. Medium body, soft, with light carbonation. Starts with nice maltiness, light acidity and medium hop profile. Mild fruitiness, with medium-soft bitter finish. Light sweet grain finish and soft bitter after. Done well, subdued.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2007
This beer was decidedly....not bad. Nothing to write home about, but mildly hoppy enough to keep my interest. A pale blonde color with some maltiness, a fair amount of hops, and a few off-notes. I wouldnít strongly recommend, but I donít feel it is as bad as portrayed here.

clear yellow, fine white head, lots of spidery lace, sweet malt aroma with a touch of corn, well bittered hop flavor with a long biter finish, enough malt to balance but the bitterness is the main profile,
