COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Light in body and color, this easy drinking Ale is crisp and refreshing. A touch of sweetness from corn makes this our most popular.

joeneugs (3106) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 16, 2009
On draft at the brewery. Pale yellow color with a tiny white head. Very bready aroma with a hint of sweetness. Taste of sweet corn, maybe some apple fruitiness and fresh baked bread. Very light on the palate. The brewer says it made this beer to compete with the popularity of the easy drinking macros. Not bad. They definitley crafted this one well for what it is.

Draft at the brewpub. Very pale yellow color. Light grainy flavor; mild hop. Finishes grainy and slightly bitter. Crisp & clean.

Pours champagne color with a thin film of a white head. Nose is very subtle bready malt. The flavor is bready with a hint of cream corn, also on the palate.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2007
On tap at the Schoonerís Brewery/Restaurant in Antioch. It pours a clear pale gold with thin bright white head. The aroma is light malty sweetness, corn and mild noble hops. The flavor has a brief hint of crisp spice hops that gets covered up with sugary sweet malts and corn flakes. Not really my favorite tasting type of beer but it is refreshingly fresh.

Tasted from fresh growler. This blond/golden ale pours a medium orange gold color. Small to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A light to medium bodied golden ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Itís a light, sweet and fruity ale, nearly delicate tasting. Smooth round mouthfeel. Iím not a fan of golden ales, but this one is nice. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Very pale clear yellow, moderate head. Very light grainy/corny aroma. Low body and bitterness levels. Quite smooth and clean, lacking any esters or other exciting flavors. A perceptible bitterness at the end and appropriately dry finish keeps this from being insipid like other similar cream ales (what Iíd call this).

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2007
On tap @ Schooners poured a clear pale yellow with a small lasting white head. Aromas of bread and light straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, bread and a hint of citrus with a crisp clean finish.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Incredibly clean and highly drinkable. The aroma is slightly sweet and fresh. Appearance was a nice light/medium golden in color, crystal clear with a soft head. Flavors were crisp, clean, light with a touch of hops and a little sweetness. The drinkability of this is off the charts.
