Taster at the source. Poured a non clear gold with a I/4" white head. A dirty blonde, so to speak. Light caramel malt, grains and grassy hops. Light nuttiness on the flavor as well as some grassy/herbal hops. Medium bodied. Okay.

DiarmaidBHK (4239) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2016
Sampler at brewpub. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Not a lot on the nose. Creamy and smooth on the tongue. Finished clean. A solid gateway beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught @ Portsmouth Brewery, Portsmouth, NH
Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, floral and yeast. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a long yeasty, floral and light citrus finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. It’s an unclear, pale golden beer with a dense, white, finger-thick head. The aroma is soapy and limey, with grains and a generic fruityness. It’s lighlty bitter on the palate, fruity and limey, with some pale malts in the far back. Medium body, smooth and semi-dry on the palate. Fruity, limey finish. A boring one, but at least it’s flawless and easy drinkable. 150608

On tap at brewery. Pour is hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma of fruity pebbles, caramel, yeast, and dough. Flavor is similar with added sweetness of vanilla and honey. Dry finish.

on draft at the brewery, a light easy going clean ale, not much going on but that is the idea. For the masses

kramer (5910) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear gold body with a small frothy white head. The nose is bready and cereal grains with no hops at all, rather bland. The flavor is dry with a Cheerio like grainy malt, and a touch of doughiness. Very light hop bitterness on the finish. A bit of an odd fruitiness on the back end as well. Mouthfeel is light bodied and clingy with soft carbonation. Doesn’t do anything for me, not very clean.
