ben4321 (3862) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 21, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012
Location: Draft at Proletariat, 12/21/12

Aroma: The nose has some spice, a little grass, yeast, and caramel malts
Appearance: It pours an unclear gold-orange, with small white head and spotty lace
Flavor: This one tastes medium sweet, with a light zesty hop bitterness on finish
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a clean feel, soft carbonation, and lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This one exceeded my expectations for sure. I was expecting a boring blond, but what I got was much better then that. The malts are nicely balanced by a light, but zesty hop presence that just works. This was a perfect example of a beer that a non-beer lover might order that has enough character for beer lovers to enjoy it too.

thegreenrooster (3194) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Pour is a clear gold with a white fizzy head that vanishes fast. Aroma is some grain and sweet malt. Not much there. Flavor is about the same. Some pils like malt with some minor sweet citrus fruit. Finish is watery and thin. This was kind of bland and really thin.
