A rather lackluster golden ale, this near headless brew has a mildly sweet, grassy aroma. The flavor is bland, some slight, light pome fruitiness, some sweet graininess, a touch of herbal hops. Uninteresting.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 26, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2005 Pours a "blonde" color with not much head but surprisingly great lacing. Aroma is musky dirty funk ass cock with wheat on the side. Flavors mimics but with a sweeter aftertaste. Finishes musky and poor like the bum I’m considering pouring this on. I don’t care for blondes much but saying that I didn’t like this blonde much is like saying that Jenna Jamison puts out.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden color (who didn’t see this coming?) with a small white head. The faint aroma was dough, light malt, and grain. The flavor was sweet malts and some hops. Clean, crisp finish. Light bodied. Not bad for a summer day. Not as bad as others may have rated.

Gold color, medium head. Lightly hopped, lightly malted. A mild pilsner with good flavor. Finish is smooth and clean. Aftertaste is slightly malty, no bitterness.

Sampled at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits Friday evening beer tasting social. Pours a light golden pale blonde brew with a fast dissolving and thin white head. Aroma of powdery wheat and corn with some grassy hops. Taste is light bodied, well carbonated with a wonder bread and a hint of lime zest. FInish is medium dry with a a clean aftertate.

Great summer beer. Used to buy this before A-B took over ruined the ESB. Still, a nice summer time brew to share at a picnic.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2007
12oz. Bottle: Aroma is funky though not sweet, or bitter. Smells earthy, and of corn, wheat, grains, and peanuts. Poured golden in color with a small white head that diminished. No lacing. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is slightly malty though not sweet or bitter. Tastes of malt, corn, wheat, and peanuts. Pretty poor flavor. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. No finish really. Overall, expensive Bud.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Deep golden color with a fluffy white head. Aromas of pale grain, both floral and somewhat citric hops and light creamed corn (DMS). Off sweet malt flavors, not earthy, not grainy, just plain off. Dry and uneventful finish.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 24, 2003
This brew poured a medium sized head of off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a hazy light yellow orange brown colored softly carbonated body. It has a mild malt hop aroma. The mouthfeel is crisp and bubbly in the start with a mild tingly finish. The flavor is a medium strength malt hop one and is very refreshing. A very good choice for our dinner this evening.
