Does what you expect after seeing the clear crisp pour. Clean and crisp. Wonderful lawnmower beer if you will. Nothing bad or special.

On tap at Dante’s. Blond decent head retention. Smells like it tastes, sweet slight banana belgiumy and malty. Drinkable, not that great.

Aroma is lemon, pale wheat, yeast and sweet, buttery malts. The aroma just screams Kolsch, and it’s one of my favorite lager styles, I’m down with it. It smells very inviting. Touch of cloves. The straw yellow look won’t inspire too much salivation, although the carbonation is surprisingly strong, making it more than your typical pale lager. The lemon zest beautifully compliments the buttery malts. There is a touch of citrus orange, very slight. A surprising amount of body. Well-bodied but not fizzy; it’s smooth and buttery. As far as a summery lager goes, this one is on the mark.

Solid but not great. A classy blonde ale in the American style (tastes like adjuncts used). A lil bit light a Budweiser.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2012
On hand at Denver Summer Brew Fest 2012. Clear pale golden with a nose of pale earthy cereal grains. Flavor is a light estery version of the same, some light toffee and subtle hoppiness on the back. Kinda bland.

Average hoppy aroma. Average flat watery beer. Some metallic aroma. Pretty plain.

reebtogi (4039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2012
355ml bottle that pours a light golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with some cereal grains and herbs. Taste is fruity and malty sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness. Light bodied with modest carbonation and a nice clean finish. A nice representation of the style.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Decent. The nose is fruity with notes of grass and apricots. The beer is golden with a frothy white head. The taste is crisp grass with light apricot notes. Crisp light and clean.

Bif (1380) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle- Pours a golden color with a fairly small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of fruits and grain with a bit of spice and sweetness in the background. Starts with a nice crispness that becomes a mild fruit sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp and refreshing. Pleasant beer that goes down easy. Goes best with a warm summer day or BBQ.
