One of my least favorite of all Widmers beers, this is way to watery and bland for my tastes.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Cereal aroma with what smells like Liberty hops (slightly cheesy, funky). Crystal clear straw colored with small head. Completely neutral flavor starts with slight biscuit flavor on the finish. Thin mouthfeel. A truly unremarkable (but no real flaws) beer. Not sure I’ve ever had something that was so flavorless.

Cloudy and nasty, why does Widmer have to suck so much arse? It is a lovely shade of piss yellow though, can’t beat that!

Not a big fan of this style of beer typically, but in the summer time this one would pass for a nice daily drink.

This was a nice beet that just needed a bit more to it. I was not impressed with this beer. I felt it just was a ber and no extremeness to it. I was at an event where we should have had beer that was odd and off the wall to try and this was just a easy beer to get anywhere.

Bottle. Pours clear blonde-amber color with a moderate white head. Aroma is biscuity malts and floral-herby hops. Flavor features a decent malty backbone with a balance of bittering hops and a peppery finish. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. A fairly unremarkable blonde ale.
