Had this on cask at churchkey. Didn’t do much for me. Not a lot of flavor though I don’t really know if this sort of thing should be on cask. I think it works better for me for heavier bigger mouthfeel beers. Not much hop or malt here, basically a simple, smooth clean drinking light beer.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2010
Dry hopped. Drought pour. Golden yellow color. Nice, lacy head. Smooth, quite English, with a very watery, easy drinking mouthfeel. Light floral hoppiness. Very refreshing. Light mellow bitterness in the aftertaste. Good, but I can see how the non-dry-hopped version could be weak.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2009
On tap at the General Sutter inn. Light copper pour, clear with small white head and lots of lacing. Odd flavoring with hops on the down low.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Brewed in the USA... On tap at The General Sutter Inn. Pours a golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of malts, grains, lemons and an old musty basement. Taste of grains, more grains and bread and grass. Mouthfeel is kind of dry !! Not as big fan of this brew. I had a very hard time finishing this one.

Clear yellow with no head. Vanilla and malt aroma, crisp faint malty taste.

Aurelius (3890) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Lemon, yeast and diacetyl aroma. Lemony, dry, doughy. Tangy ale finish. Very clear, very yellow. Pretty crisp, good summer brew, but nothing special. Doesn’t cling.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Hazy straw body topped by big white head, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, biscuit, grain, lemon. Taste is moderately sweet, bread, lemon, no bitterness to speak of. Soft light body, low carbonation.

BigSkyman007 (202) - USA - MAR 14, 2004
Now officially the best light beer I've ever had. Pale yellow color, little head, but nice hoppiness, crisp, and easy drinking. A winner.

Braudog (5485) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2003
Light golden with a good head. Crisp, cleanly grainy. Very smooth. Could be a blockbuster in the 7-11 market.
