"Not bad for what it is, a slightly hoppier than usual golden ale. The hops are hay and grass, the flavor ever so slightly sweet and quite light. Decent food beer."

blipp (7863) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. A little bit of grainy sweetness, low bitterness, and not much else. Relatively clean--not perfectly clean, but drinkable.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear golden with a tiny remnant of a head that leaves a trace of lace. The nose has notes of grass and grain. The flavour is medium sweet with grass and grainy malts with just a hint of honey. The finish is moderate in length with continuation of the grass and grain notes. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a fairly unremarkable golden ale. 2013-03-22

crossovert (10770) - Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2012
A pretty insipid blonde ale. Watery, buttery, undeveloped. Yet somehow the head brewer thinks it is worthy.

Ungstrup (33459) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2010
Draft. A light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of butter, straw, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, butter, and straw, leading to a lightly bitter finish. I think it is off - but why then serve at the brewpub?
