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

UDBeernut (2519) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Slightly darker than straw yellow, thin white head that last the whole time. Cracker and flowers in the nose. Semi sweet cracker slightly underbalanced. Flower and light citrus on the finish. Light bodied and a great sessionable beer.

mansquito (4940) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 9, 2016
The Sampler, Brooklyn can: pours light gold white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with many pale malts. Taste is like a golden ale that is on the hoppier end. Still it is very smooth. Easy to drink. Body is not too light. Kind of grainy. Not bad.

nota (44) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2016
Clear and pale golden with lazy carbonation. Minimal white head dissipates quickly. Grassy and piney with corn-cereal and a slight mineral back; looks and tastes like a fuller-bodied pilsner. Finishes semi-dry with sweet corn and a final point of herbal bitterness. Refreshing and light, a great beer for the beach.

McNeillR (2142) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Very pale slightly greasy with no head. Nose is grassy, chalky and creamy unsurprisingly. Initial taste is a nice dewy, light crispbread and malty minerally. Carbonation is solid and a light enough mouthfeel. Finishes rich enough, lingers neat breadiness. Bit plain.

[ can ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $ ? ][ schnapps flute ][ 12.20.15 ]
still bodied translucent cream, thin white ring, oily. Heavy dark grain nose, considerable marshmallow underattenuation. Bitter cream front palate, light dark grain mid with soft sugar before the finish. Soft bitterness through end. Nothing to distinguish, few errors distract.

radagast83 (6786) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Can at the main DC December gathering. Poured a light golden yellow color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was light, creamy vanilla notes. There’s a hint of cracker and light sweet straw grains in this one. Easy to drink.
