Pours a clear golden with a white head and malty aroma. Taste is very light and subtle, of malt and caramel, but overall flavorless and lacking.

22oz Bottle. The pour was a clear golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a light puddled film and medium collar and had good spotty lacing. The aroma was of a lightly sweet grain malt, floral hops and a doughy yeast with a note of caramel and a mild fruity ester. The taste was rather malty with a mild caramel sweetness and a pronounced grainy feel from the start, becoming lightly hoppy with a slight adjunct presence and a light fruitiness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average duration proceeding the swallow and had a light spicy sweetness at the very end. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a medium carbonation. Overall a good refreshing brew with an unpretentious taste and a great drinkability...

22 ounce bottle. Pours a clear gold with a nice creamy white head. Aroma of bread, fruit, and malt. Taste is mainly sweet, bread, peaches, florals, and a bit of hops. Pleasant and easy to drink.

Pale straw colour. This white head. The nose is lightly fruity with a touch of minerality. Light spicy hoppiness on the finish. Pretty nice simple brew.

Clear golden pour with a 2 finger head that faded quick. Lots of carbonation. A little lace. Aroma of sticky wort and malt. Mouth stings a bit. Very light in flavor. A little malt with a hoppy finish. After taste is full of grain.

Some citrus and caramel and nails the creaminess but otherwise not a lot going on.

CampesinoTino (782) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bomber. Pours a crystal clear light golden color with an inch of white foam that quickly dissipates. Mostly toasted grains, grassy hops and subtle citrus notes in the aroma. The taste is mildly fruity and grainy with the malt flavors dominate for the most part. Also some honey sweetness around the edges. The body is well-carbonated with a clean, dry finish. Not a huge fan of this style but it definitely goes down easy.

Yellow pour, white head. Aroma of creamed corn(light), caramel malt, some fruity esthers. Flavor is fruity, not too heavy on the corn aspect, some yeast. Not bad for a style that is almost always bad.
