FunkyBrewster (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is very light bready, some fruitiness, honey, grain. Flavor has much the same, light fruit, honey, grain becomes less sweet and more cracker-y in the finish. Light to medium body and a sharp carbonation.

Light yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some grain and light sugar notes. The flavor is similar with a lot of biscuit malt, grain and grass. Fairly sweet overall. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

cheap (3801) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Froma twist off bottle. Looks like any other cheap lager. Decent fresh beery aroma, a little metallic on the olfactory. Fromthe tastebud start, this is a pretty refeshing beer, glasd I tried it. It seems to have good manners. Would appeal to the typical lager lover, never over the top. Hides alky fairly well, even for 4.5%. Yes, good overall pleasant beer experince. On style for an enjoyable cream ale. Easy to like.

EtTuCthulhu (897) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2013
When poured, this beer’s aroma is very light, combining hints of dough yeast and sweet malts, and the appearance combines a clear light yellow color with a medium white head. The taste is slightly sweet and a touch sour, which makes for a barely there flavor, and the palate continues this overall light quality of the beer with the fusion of the light body, slick texture, average carbonation, and a sweet finish.

12oz bottle - pours cloudy straw with white head. Nose is citrus and wet hay. Flavors adds nothing. Way better than little kings. Cardboard and strawberry aftertaste. Refreshing and light.

DrSilverworm (5016) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2013
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Mostly clear pale yellow body, minimal white head, couple dots of lace. Medium body. Light to moderate carbonation, kind of abrupt texture. Wheat flavor, some light citrus. Mostly sweet, light tart taste. OK cream ale. Flavor doesn’t really carry the sweet taste. Not too interesting more than halfway through, but not too bad

tmoreau (2124) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to my 1/2 pint taster showing a clear, light golden hue, with a modest amount of white, bubbly head foam that diminished rather quickly to a ring & film, and left some clingy spots & spray on the glass. The aroma was light malt, grain, a touch of corn, and some light mineral scent. The flavor added slight sweetness, decent effervescence, low hop astringency, while presenting a light body, with some watery texture. Clean and sessionable nonetheless.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2013 This 12 oz. bottle was sent to me by Strykzone in a trade. Noticing it was a summer beer I waited until I was done with a hard workout on the Elliptical machine to drink this one. Poured a very clear light color, with a fine bubbled white head and moderate lacing. The nose is light malts and floral and grassy hops. Light in body it has a smooth creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is tasty with some light fruit and floral hops, on a caramel malt base. The finish is creamy and grainy and almost sweet. It is what it is, a summer beer, and is quite refreshing after a workout.
