kramer (4939) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small wispy white head that faded quickly. The nose is clean bready malt with a touch of light fruitiness, minimal to no hoppiness. The flavor is pretty clean as well, pale bready and doughy malt, a light sweetness on the finish balanced with a little bit of hop bitterness. Light bodied and easy drinking with a touch of clinginess, soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty solid effort for a usually boring style.

BVery (6191) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. Clear light orange pour with no head. Grain, sweet bready malts. Okay for a standard golden.

Dogbrick (8113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a thin white head that dissipates gradually to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops and grainy malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Reynolds314 (2324) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Nice pleasant golden with light flavors but nothing out of balance. Light sweetness, light spicy hops, and a solid doughy yeast presence. I like it.

Drake (8536) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of lightly toasted pale malts, herbal hops and a faint resiny note. The taste is lightly toasted grain with fruity and floral hops. Medium bodied - refreshing.
