jflopsu (501) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Pours a light yellow and has a very faint aroma of wheat and malt. Taste is similar to aroma, but finishes a little sours and bitter with some hops, but not overpowering, as well as a hint of lemon.

Slightly bitter, light hop aroma, light golden color. Inoffensive and easy to drink in the summer.

acasteel (26) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Blonde plus citrus. Hoppier than usual but less hops in the nose than the dry hopping would suggest.

Nuffield (3665) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2013
After sleeping my way through the Helles and Hefe, I was struck by a particularly nice aroma, with a lot of hopping giving a great citrus note in particular. The flavor was more muted, by comparison. Solid. A little high in abv for a session ale but it could be that. On tap at brewpub.

Draft. Golden beer with a whitish head. Light sweet malt aroma. Light malt flavor. Medium bodied. Easy drinking. Light malt and light backing hops linger.

joeneugs (3118) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
On tap at the brewery. It pours a light gold color with a white head. THe aroma is surprisingly hoppy with tangerine and pineapple fruit. The flavor is also hop forward with grass and solid pine bitterness at the finish. Light bodied and very tasty.
