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

trapped (1189) - New York City, TURKEY - MAY 13, 2015
Draught @ Albion. Hazy bright orange with small frothy white head, faint doughy aroma, medium carbonation, watery taste with minimal hops flavor, abrupt finish. Should be nice under scorching sun, but...

skmikeg (1201) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Pours pale golden yellow with a half finger white which fades to just a little lacing. Aroma is of biscuit malts, citrus (mainly lemon), sweet malts, and some light bready malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, semi dry, medium-short finish. Overall, a somewhat tasty blonde ale that is easy drinking and would be a good lawnmower beer.

callmemickey (3467) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2015
Golden colored body, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Sweet crackery malt, lemon, some yeasty esters. Medium to light bodied, moderate to lively carbonation, semi-sweet throughout, rounded finish.

Cunningham (5319) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2014
Hazy golden color with a fine white head on top. Malty, mild fruity and mild citrus hoppy. Ok body. Ok bitterness and moderate sweet. Average to rich carbonation. Caramel malty, mild fruity and mild citric. Decent thirst quencher in the sun.

12 oz. Bottle from 12 pack craft pack by distributer. I don’t know if this is skimmed but tastes very nutty.

RobertDale (4082) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - SEP 9, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and grain. Taste is lemon, malt, wheat, and spice. Easy to drink.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Slightly opaque yellow body with a nice white head that nice retention and lace. Aroma was of wheat and corn. Flavor had a slightly tart wheat presence. Corn was mild and there was a slight citrus note. Easy to drink. Tart flavor was overpowering for a mild beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dacrza (593) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: June 27, 2014... GLASSWARE: Ayinger willibecker... OCCASION: a ton of yard work done today--time for a reward...APPEARANCE: cloudy, slightly murky yellow-orange body; good effervescence; white, thick, soapy head; sporadic whips of lacing... AROMA: some lemon zest, some dishwasher detergent as well; faint wheat and clove... PALATE: slightly lively; easily drinkable, as the style would suggest; light in body and not fizzy--flat?... TASTE: instantly off-putting funk that doesn’t subside with the next sip (wet cardboard?); malt is somewhat abrasive as well; this is NOT what summer tastes like to me... OVERALLL: sadly, a second chance at a first impression, and yet the same result: a bafflingly unsatisfying flavor married to a thirst-quenching body; plenty of other summer ales deliver more taste and harmonious experiences...

Tap pour. Pale, corn colored. Minimal head. Some lacing. Aroma is corn chips and cereal. Did I just open a bag of Frito’s? Taste is similar. Captain Crunch. Huh.
