arkurzynski (1502) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Tap. Clear gold, almost pale amber. Not much of nose outside of mild pale malts, cereal, and faint grassy hops. Flavor is pale malt with some adjunct flavors and mild grassy bitterness. A slight metallic finish. Clean with light cracker residual. Easy drink, not bad. It is what it is.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Bottled. Poured cloudy, medium golden with a short white head and a whole bunch of floaties in there. The aroma picked up toasted wheat and wet grainy notes, with a pinch of lemon accenting.. not much going on, but non-offensive. The flavor found more wet grains and a touch of bread at the core.. tart lemon and wheat-like notes around, joined by prickly carbonation.. finished quick, dry, and tart. Light-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation on the palate.. this actually flowed well, and ended up being quasi-refreshing.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at the Sprecher brewery in Glendale, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale ale with an average-sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, light crystal/grassy hops, a hint of mild bread dough and ale yeast. Taste is light to medium bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some mildly spicy grassy hops, some light honey and a touch of lemon zest. Finish has a short lived mild spicy bitterness then a light golden grain malt aftertaste. Not as smooth as the original Lithia beer that was brewed by Riverside but still a decent sessional golden ale.

dekester1 (312) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Poured a nice mid gold with a light head which faded to minimal lacing. Aroma was of malts and mild hops. Taste is similar - all malt with a nice mellow hop finish. Palate is nice. Overall, a nice, rich blonde ale which is worth a repeat at some point.

Nice ale that is light, yet has great flavor. It has a clean taste with floral undertones

As I am a newbie to "rate beer" and this is my virgin taste, I must say I was pleasantly surprised with my first choice. I picked it as it is in close proximity to my hometown. I found the brew to be exceptionally refreshing with a hint of "earthiness" to it. I decided to try one with a lemon, also very good. Overall, I would say a very drinkable craft brew.
