COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed by ale breweries to compete with the surging popularity of lager beer, it remains a regional specialty in the Northeast United States. Our version is light-bodied and pale straw color, but uses no corn or rice as many of the original versions did. The result is a supremely malty and refreshing version of a style dear to our hearts

MrHangover (3309) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2015
Can @ Camping RateBeers 2015; Nat & Winderig, courtesy of the crew! Pours a clear golden ale with a small white head on top. Aroma of not much, bready and malty. Flavor is thin, watery and bitter. Aftertaste is light, carbonation is soft and rather boring. Nothing wrong with it, just very dull.
