Hazy light golden color. Small white head that actually lasted till the last sip! Aroma was buttery, grains, sweet malt. Flavor of the same sweet maltiness, grain, touch of sweetness (honey). Creamyish and refreshing. Not nearly as thin and watery as most blond/golden ales. Nice body I think

Pours a beautiful gold into the glass with a thin white head and lots of effervesence. Nose is yeast and bread. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is bakery bread, very smooth, no bitterness, slightly sweet. A good companion to ham and cheese on rye.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Originally reviewed: 12/30/09. Grabbed a bottle of this when I was in WI for the holidays. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy light gold with no head at all. Some very light lace sticks. Scents of veggies, grains, and a kiss of honey on the finish.
Good crisp, clean body on this beer. Very tame and mild in the flavor dept. There is a nice hop presence though with a mild bitter kick. Some good bready flavor mixed with a sweet backing. This is what it is. Drinkability is high as it is unoffensive and tame. I, for one, liked it. Great for barbecues and campouts in the great WI outdoors.

Pours a light golden color with not much of a scent. Has a very light crisp taste, quite watered down.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

On tap at Sand Creek tap room. Served a nice mid-gold with a light head/lace combo. Aroma of slightly sweet malts and grain. Taste was similar - front-end was malty followed by the taste of grains with a light hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall, a nice light malt/grain ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle.
A - Hazy, cloudy, dusty gold color with an average sized, foamy, cloud-like, soapy white head. Average retention with a pretty good creamy layer of lace left.
S - Some cracker and pale malt aroma. Grainy aroma comes out a bit stronger in subsequent sniffs. A touch of lemony citrus rind. Fairly sweet with a touch of spicy aroma.
T - Some sweet pale malt and a touch of cracker/bread flavor. Fairly strong apple taste comes out along with some lemon rind. A strong grainy taste with a bit of toasted flavor along with it. Very faint grassy taste as well.
M - Lighter side of medium body with a nice level of carbonation. The more I drink, it seems to get a bit smoother and creamier. Nice feel.
D - Easy to drink with a nice mix of flavors. Quite refreshing with a nice body.
Notes: Nice, easy to drink beer with a nice mix of flavors. Pretty tasty, not going to blow anyone away, but a solid choice (especially on a warm day).

Slightly hoppy aroma, filled with a sweet tint. Flavor is of mild citrus and hops, with a refreshing, sweetened malty finish.

Clear golden orange, white head of fine bubbles. Nose is nutty malts w/ a background of fruity yeast notes--quite nice, esp. for a light ale like this. Medium sweet w/ perhaps a bit overly vigorous carbonation but a smooth, creamy mouthfeel regardless. I am not sure quite what they are going for her but I think I’d put this in a catagory w/, say, Goose Island 312, a beer of generally APA-ish qualities but lighter and not as hoppy (not nearly as hoppy in this case). Finishes w/ a lingering tartness and some sticky floral sweetness. Good attempt at a blond but not quite there.
