Clear golden color with a small, white head. The aroma is caramel, and toasted malts, with some lager yeast characteristics. Light palate with some caramel flavors and not much else. Pretty plain all in all.

Nice head. Yeasty aroma. Odd taste...sort of bitter, skunky, stale even. But the appearance is beautiful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (16885) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle on Amtrak 354 between Chicago and New Buffalo - 03/11/12. Pours light amber with a big frothy white head. Carbonation evident. Nose of malt, barley, grain and a hint of fruit - pretty muted. Taste follows nose - nothing else to add to the very basic components of this beer. Medium bodied with light spritzy carbontaion. High on the blandometer.

suprchunk (2960) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Light, light caramel colored pour. Sizable off-white head. Some lacing. Smell is malty and that’s about it. Slightly carbonic malty taste. A little fruity as well. A bit bitter in the back. Not bad.

12 oz twist off bottle purchased as part of a mystery six pack from Andy’s in Rochester, Minnesota. SEP2412 printed on bottle neck. The pour is a light clear golden, with a fizzy one inch light tan head that falls loosely and quickly. The aroma is metallic sweet malt, bit of a grainy corn, and grass. The taste is the sharp malt metallic sweetness, followed by a general graininess - it is a bit cleaner tasting then the nose suggested. The palate is light bodied, active carbonation, and a thin verging on watery finish. Easy enough to drink.
