Transfer from BA review on 10-23-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed medium golden colored beer with one finger of foamy white head. The head fades over about a 5 min time period, leaving a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is wheaty and grainy smelling with a little bit of a citrus and grassy hop aroma mixed within. Taste – The taste begins with a nice bready and doughy flavor with a decent amount of a sweet caramel flavor. These flavors create a nice smooth base for the brew, lasting till the end. Along with the aforementioned flavors, some flavors of yeast and lighter fruit flavors join the tongue. Toward the end a bit of a lemon taste as well as some light hop flavors of an herbal nature join the tongue. With just a hint of graininess and pepper joining the tongue at the very end a nice crisp yet smooth sweet and malty flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation that is rather high. Both are fantastic for the mix of bread, sweet, and hop, creating a very refreshing and quite drinkable brew. Overall -This one is nice and refreshing a great session style brew. One I will certainly get again.

On draft. Clear golden color with almost no head. Almost no aroma on this one. Really light malt taste. The definition of average.

Golden beer, medium carbonation. White, frothy head. Your basic, average, run-of-the-mill beer. You would enjoy this if Coors Light or Miller Lite were your favorite beers.

Bottle from gift gourmet sampler case from friend Rick - thanks! Crisp yellow color and taste, medium bodied and a non-harsh mouth feel. Stays on the palette for a while. Quite good!

Pours a clear yellow with a white aroma and flat aroma. Taste is watery, some grain and malt, but overall flavorless as with most lagers

jjgmd (1509) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2013
Pours a very pale light yellow gold color. Nose is flat with barely an aroma. Taste is metallic and grainy, undrinkable. Another suspect from a craft club, which is why I retired by membership. Quaff Score 2 / 10
