Pours a pale golden color with a big fluffy head. Aroma of biscuits, some bread, noticeable hops. Not all that flavorful or interesting but falls into that "relatively cheap, not offensive, sessionable, available everywhere I drink" category.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is lightly bready with some corn and light yeastiness. The flavor is thin and uninspiring with some light bready maltiness and a very minimal hop bitterness. Thin and light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Not a whole lot going on in this one here. BMC substitute.

On tap in Philly. Hoppy and heavy. A little too carbonated. Kind of mediocre at best.

Gold / bronze pour with an aroma of mild hop, skunkyand bread. Taste was also mild hop and yeast.
Nice summer beer.

Had at monthly beer club meeting around a fire. Pours clear pale yellow with medium foamy white head. Aroma nice and floral with some pine notes. Flavor light and watery, with bit of lemony floral parts to it. Overall, didn’t really stand out as anything special to me. Just typical plain lighter ale.

Better than expected. Yellow, big loose whate head. Some yeast in the bottom of the bottle. Clean, crisp soapy (in a good way) aroma. Not a whole lot of malt flavor, and simple, crisp hop bite. Tasty, would make a good session beer.

Pale yellow color with a short head that has some lacing. Not much on the nose. I am having a hard time making out anything except a slight maltiness. Slight malt taste too. Finish is clean and crisp. Not bad for a hot day but not much else going on here.

Thanks to ChrisPro for sending this in Blind Bill Round 4. Served in a tulip.
Pours brings a golden-colored, transparent beer with a bit of spotty lacing. No real visible carbonation. Nose brings forward a pretty strong grainy presence along with a slight amount of Noble hops, though not enough of the latter to really call this a pilsner. The flavor is mildly fruit with a bit of grain and some mild Noble hops. Fairly chewy, though still a bit light. Carbonation is moderate, though it seems like it should be a bit higher. Light body. Drinks pretty well overall. My guess is either a kolsch or a Munich Helles. Going with the former given the fruitiness and lack of true "bready" flavor.

Draft, listed as a kolsch. Golden and clear with a nice billowing white head. Aroma is sweet malts and grassy and floral hops. Flavor has pilsner malt, floral hops, grass, grain, and honey. Body on the lighter side, but not thin, with good crispness. Solid stuff given the style. Very drinkable.
