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 (15566) - 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 (5395) - 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.

rondphoto (2939) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Clear coper color, thin rim head, no lace. Taste is fizzy sweet wheat that adds a little tart caramel before fading to a light sweet finish. Neat and clean, very understated, but also very weak. However, better than Bud Light, et al.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a rather clear gold with a thin white head. Grainy, and sweet on the nose. Medium bodied, grainy, soft sweetness. Easy drinking, sort of basic brew pub blonde, but not crappy like most. Nice crisp grain on finish.

22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Purchased on 7/28 with the new printed label. I miss the old paper labels... A - As the name may suggest...a dirty blonde body. Nice and clear with a lot of rising carbonation. Small one finger high white head. A fair amount of lacing. S - Quite inviting. Toasty malts, grains, light citrus and piney hops, and a bit of sweetness on the finish. T - Starts off with some pine and fruitiness and finishes dry with toasted grains and a lingering sweetness similar to that found in a adjunct lager. Mouth feel is crisp and well carbonated, but a bit thin. O - Nothing amazing or ground breaking, but a really easy drinking and palatable beer with flavor. The kind of beer you’d want in a cooler on a hot day.
