phaleslu (6812) - 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.

marcus (6773) - 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.

j12601 (6769) - 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.

Ernest (6345) - 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.

Can sample at a tasting at Tom C’s place. Thanks Tom C. Slightly hazy pale yellow with a white head. Grainy aroma with fruity esters and some floral and slightly citric hops. Sweetish flavor with graininess, yeast, spiciness, some fruitiness, some floral hops and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied.
