Pours a light golden yellow with small head. Aroma of floral, grass and some hops. Flavor is a sweetish mixture of breadlines, hops and citrus notes. Not bad, not great, just sort of middle of the road.

Finhead (1166) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Clear, pale yellow pour with a bright, white head. The aroma has a light citrus quality with some mild florals and banana bread. It has a light body with average carbonation. The taste is slightly on the sweet side, but its refreshing.

Leafs93 (1666) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is musty, citrus, grass and toast. Taste is sweet with light bitters. Medium bodied, sessionable but there are better summers out there.

Ericular (596) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 Update: Pretty much dead-on with the same impression, -1 taste -1 aroma. Just not that great. Not much above a MGD or PBR. Pours a pale clear gold with head reducing to a thin film with spotty lacing. Aroma is citrusy sourdough bread with a slight funky edge. Taste is sweet honey up front, into a carbonated kick of lemon zest, settling into a mildly yeasty hop bitterness, with a hint of the sourdough coming back through. Palate is fizzy and dry. Supposed to be refreshing, but the taste combination just wasn’t doing it for me. Mediocre. Not the first beer I’d think of on a hot summer day. 7+4+6+2+10=2.9 (5/10/2013)

Beerathon (1133) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2012
This is how a summer brew should smell. I little hoppy, I little malty, and a little lemony. Pretty decent.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear straw color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of citrus and honey. The flavor is a smooth decent Blonde: citrus, some earthy grains, light bitterness in the finish. Some almost tropical notes at times, the lengthy dry earthiness is a bit rough. Decent.

Clear straw color with a fringe head and streaks of lace. The taste doesn’t quite work: hops and lemon in concert combines bitter and sour in a somewhat unpleasant way. Drinkable, but hardly more. Not recommended.
