HonkeyBra (3280) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Draft at the brew pub. Pours golden with a medium white head. Aroma of grains, grass, mild fruit and bread. Some herbal hop notes. Flavor has a medium bready sweetness cut by mild herbal hop bitterness. Light bodied with spritzy texture, lively carbonation. Finishes a bit sweet with mild fruitiness.

milewide (1474) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bland---in all respects. Probably OK for the style, but too much like Bud. Clear golden color with minimal head. No hop taste. Bigger body than Bud is its only saving grace.

chinchill (1715) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Served on tap at Perrin. This light golden ale is also light in color and body. It has more than adequate aroma and adequate taste for a light ale, however. Still, best thought of as a premium craft beer for those fond of Bud Light and the like.

Tmoney99 (10467) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Tap sample. Poured clear golden color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable sweet brew.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2012
On tap at Perrin Brewpub as my 500th Michigan rate. Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of burnt match, corn, faint hops and some sweet malt. Taste of corn, sweet malt and mild grassy hops. Over carbonated and finishes astringent.
