Very timid beer. Light golden hue with thin white foam. Light and watery taste Slight bit of citrus up front but this quickly dissipates, and gives way to a bit of a grassy hop taste. Lacks complexity.

On tap at Pyramid. Served in a plastic cup in the Beer Garden. Clear golden color with medium white head. Slight citrus aroma. Grainy flavor with a slight citrus finish. Med-light body. Too much grain and not enough citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

the first one i had was good enough, but in subsequent tastings, there was an unpleasant, almost skunky quality to it. i’d have thought i got a bad one if it only happened once...and it didn’t taste quite spoiled. just boring and not very good."

An easy to drink beer that is good fit a refreshing day. A little bit of an undesirable aftertaste. Not very crisp.

chinchill (2755) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
22 oz bottle consumed on the banks of Oregon’s McKenzie River. No date found. Appearance: clear medium-light amber with a semi-durable, off-white head. Limited spotty lacing. Aroma: faint and mild herbal/floral hops with a good bit of biscuit malts. Flavor: Low hop intensity in this ale. Rather low malt load too. Mild bitterness. Feel: Lively medium carbonation. Near medium body. O: decent but unexceptional light pale ale.

vulcanmeister (200) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a light golden with thin white head. Aroma is a clean crisp fruitiness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Flavor citrus and grain with a short dry finish. It was ok, but nothing to get excited about.

AirForceHops (4156) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Draft at Mad Dog in the Fog. Light hazy gold, light white head. Aroma is light pale malt... Nothing else. Flavor is pale grain, honey and weak wheat. Thin every body and texture. 5.00$ U.S dollars for the pint.

mikedR (1525) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Surprised by the low ratings. This one is nice. Flavor has some banana notes. A bit of hops at the tail end. Strikes me as a PNW take of this style.

Onslow (1246) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2014
22oz draft. Clear golden brew. Mild aroma of light citrus. Light taste - a little malt and citrus with a touch of musty earth in the finish.

raphael (971) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2014
someone had slipped this into the 6 pack of Outburst I bought. I will be more vigilant next time. I smell fresh cut grass, challah, lemon. Active enough in the mouth. Modest white head a slightly blushed yellow. Light but not clean finish.

Bottle from old backlog notes 07/08. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have biscuits, straw, light toast, light fruit hint of citrus, light herbal and earthy. Very bland overall.
