(11/2/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in downtown San Diego. 3.4%. Clear pale golden color with a white head. Aroma has graininess and cereal. Sweet grainy flavor with some husky notes. Light-bodied.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 20, 2008
On-tap at the SD Airport. Don’t go to this Karl Strauss, the food is awful. Airplane food, on the ground. Pours slightly hazy, straw yellow with a medium size white head, some lace. Smells malty grainy and slightly light fruity sweet. Tastes light and sweet fruity up front with lots of cereal malt on the finish. Lingering sweetness. Medium body, vibrant carbonation.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Darkish golden in color. Sweet, roast corn aroma, with the lightest hints of apple. Very subtle flavor, corny, and very cidery. Not much by way of hops, a very slight bitterness in the aftertaste, and a very dry finish. Kind of watery. It’s not amazing by far, but it’s tolerable, and as far as most American lagers go that’s saying a lot.

From tap at the brewpub in Carlsbad. Pours clear and pale yellow with a diminished white head. Mild fruity hops aroma. Light hoppy and mild peach fruity flavour. Light fruity finish.

Foxbush (1265) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2008
This light was tasted at the brewery on B and Columbia in San Diego. It was a typical light beer very little taste. I am not a fan of any light beers.

Oscbert (1021) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 13, 2008
~Pours a light golden color with small white head. ~Light biscuity scent with light malt and hops. ~Taste biscuity and watered down. ~Feels light and dry ~Great beer for when it is hot out. Not much flavor. Goes down smooth and easily drinkable.

Capa (1998) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUN 3, 2008
Clear golden with a mammoth, rocky head. Crisp, malty aroma with slight earthy hops. The flavor is dominated by biscuit malts with a ever so faint fruit tone. Smooth, clean body. The aroma is off-putting, but the flavor isn’t all that bad. Overall it’s pretty boring, though.

jstraw (1917) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2008
Pale gold with thin, white head / Light grain nose / Light body, crisp, clean / Simple but clean and smooth flavors of malt and wheat / Very pleasant for a light, although I had mine ice cold.

dwyerpg (4552) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 3, 2008
No aroma. Light color. Very thin and ricy, not so good. Has a small bite at the end that keeps it interesting. Very smooh. I would maybe rather drink this than the Woodie Gold.
