j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Pouring at BBF in Boston. Ended up hanging with Brian after the first session, pouring with him during the second. Crushed many a can. Many, many a can. Pours a hazed glowing gold with a medium sized white head. Soft grain, a bit of musk, yeast. Soft lemon, light musk, bright and crisp. Gentle bitterness on the finish. Wonderfully easy drinking.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Sampled from the tap at The Bridge. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a touch of light tart fruit with a bit of Belgian yeast and a touch of grass. Flavor a nice grass and light fruits with some Belgian yeast and a touch of grain.

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours murky blonde with a thn off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. Very refreshing and quite flavorful for a fairly low alcohol beer.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2013
12 oz. can from The Party Source. Pours a bright but cloudy pale gold with a big bone white head that leaves some lace in the glass. Aroma of pale malts and lighter grains, grass, lemon, crackers, and dried fruits. Flavor of lemon, pale malts, mixed grains, grass, florals, corn, and very faint funk. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Very clean and refreshing. Good beer.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 21, 2014
Can at Dig. Pale yellow, a bit cloudy. Rather faint nose, corn, lemon, light malt. Light, crisp, and lemony flavor. Easy to drink and refreshing.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Can (canned on Sep 18). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cereal), moderately hoppy (flowers, lemon oil, grapefruit, resin), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a light note of pepper. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Fun little beer...some crude resinous hop odor, sure, but the hop bouquet offers more than just that (although I suspect if this were fresher it would be more resinous). Nicely balanced, crisp and clean bitterness. Even a little yeast character too. Can barely tell it has corn/rice, so it’s not like most of these beers that try to recreate pre-prohibition lagers. Nice chuggin’ brew.

after4ever (6059) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2013
12-oz can. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a loose sudsy whitish head. Nose comes on like a saison for sure, with mild candied lemon notes hidden in sweet grass. Creamy medium body with very lively carb. Corn, grass, and sweet cream mid palate. Unlike those other beers, and the better for it.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
12oz bottle shared by joemcphee with me, blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel. Pale clear gold with a small white head. Dry and sharply spicy aroma - like a dry-hopped saison. Taste follows, a little lemon - plenty of hops, quite grassy. Decent body, a little astringent, finishes quick but leaves a pleasant tart odd-grain aftertaste. I will get this one again.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2013
10/20/13. 12oz can from Beach Liquors in Fort Walton Beach. I know that heykevin and MaxxDaddy drink this stuff like sorority girls going to town at the best fraternity’s big party, so I had to get it. Lightly hazy golden pour with a huge, thick, tight off-white head that lasts and laces well. I thought this was just an adjunct lager, but first whiff proves me wrong. What a nice surprise! Mild Brett - light funk, fruity, a hint of a tire aspect, bits of tropical fruits and bubblegum, light citrus. Mild bitterness, really light flavor, bubblegum and fruitiness abound. Tasty stuff.
