On draft at Vanderbilt’s. As described, a simple summer beer. Not bad but not a standout within the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy-golden with a long lasting, small white head. Aroma is of citrus fruit, some apples and cookies. Body is medium and crisp. Flavors are of biscuit malt, citrus fruit and hints of musty yeast. Finish is very short. On the whole it is tasty, refreshing lawn mower brew.

On tap. Golden yellow, a little hazy. Medium taste, not strong. Goes down smoothly and very drinkeable, especially on a hot summer day. Not bad but nothing exceptional.

12 oz. bottle in a shaker. True to it’s description... Pure and simple. No complex flavors, but pretty enjoyable nonetheless.

Sharp bitter malt aroma. Cloudy golden color with a small white head. Light bitter beginning quickly developing a mild bitter finish that lingers.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a massive frothy white head that takes forever to subside. Way too much carbonation. It took several minutes to pour twelve oz into a pint glass. Slightly earthy aroma with lots of bready yeast along with subtle spice and light fruit. Faint peppery presence with hints of grass, straw, apple, lemon peel and banana. Medium bodied but on the lighter end with some tight carbonation and zesty spice. Dry and earthy with hints of grass, straw and pepper. Bready yeast is the most prominent flavor but it doesn’t add much to the palate. Sweetness toward the finish with hints of apple and lemon peel. Kind of bland but somewhat easy to drink.

Pours hazy gold with thin film of a head. Aroma was grass and some wheat. Taste was sweet with minimal bitters on the finish. Very watery.

A good summer bear. Appearance reminiscent of pee, but it goes down so smooth.
