3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: from tap at Zippy’s Giant Burgers.
Aroma: light floral hops.
Appearance: very small, white, initial head that quickly dissipated. No lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, medium-yellow body.
Taste: moderately sweet, wheaty initial flavor and finish with average duration.
Palate: light bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: very good and easy to drink. Great summer beer.
Draft - Loght grains. Cloudy yellow gold with a decent white head. Light grains and some sweetness. Boring. maekchu (4058) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 22, 2015
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Yeasty nose, with some citrus, sourish fruit, grain, and grass. Hazy gold color, small head, and sticky lace. Small sweetish fruit, yeast, corn, and soft bitterness in finish. Thin-medium body. Doesn’t seem to be a kolsch (as it is labeled on the can) -- it’s a bit too big , yeasty, and fruity. Okay. authenticmead (69) - West Coast, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Bright straw color and creamy white head. Light noble hop aroma with a touch of sweet corn. Smooth palette with some malt sweetness. Mild spicy hop flavor. This is an easy drinking blonde. I wish it finished dryer so you could drink more than one. Overall not bad cyderguy (1) - - FEB 9, 2015 does not count
Not my favorite style of beer although I was in the market for a lower gravity, session-able beer to serve during a 4 hour event for a large group of people. Purchased a sixth barrel from the brewery on 1/31/15 and keg was consumed by sundown the next day. Some notes of citrus and nice presentation with light head served at 44 degrees in half liter glasses at 8-9 psi. Tasted clean and crisp with a slightly sweet finish. Some guests attempted black and tans layering with optimator. Overall a decent value 41 pints for $75. WABeerFiend (426) - - JAN 17, 2015
Poured from a bomber into a beer can glass on 07.16.14.
A: Typical bitter hop smell like Hallertau or Noble hops. Lots of sweet grain too. Is this an adjunct lager?
A: See through straw yellow. Slight fizz of a head that quickly recedes.
T: Bitter grain, sweet malt, and maybe corn dominate. Flower and a sourness are subtle.
O: It’s not balanced at all. It also has urine-like element. Ammonia. This was very much like a macro brewery adjunct lager. Maybe it needs a lime or four. I gave it to the kitchen sink instead.

Cloudy maize with a white head. Nose of lemon, bread, a bit of sourness. Pretty full body for 4.5%. Flavor pretty much follows the aroma. Quite wheaty. Pretty strong yeast/light sourness to this one, not nearly clean enough for the Kolsch style with which it is labeled on the can ("Golden/Blond ale" as used here may be a better choice, but I can’t say I know enough about that style--other than that I often have to drink it when in Canada--to really be certain.) Abundant corn, almost to the point that I start recalling macro lagers. The favor is just off here. It’s....dirty. American comes up with some solid stuff, but not this time.
tl;dr summary: They promised Michelle Pfeiffer, but delivered Michele Bachmann.
12 oz can. Pours a light golden color with short head. Small hops and big citrus fruit and melon aroma. Love the can here. "Chill it and kill it", it says. Brilliant. Really refreshing light beer. Super easy drinking. Good for when you feel like drinking 8 of them. I’m happy with the one. Will drink again. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2014
An odd one. Totally reminds me of 10 barrel’s Swill. That is, there’s a fruitiness in the flavor that is offputting, although not so much as in Swill (less sweet -- but still sweet -- here). Ultimately, I think they have a labeling issue -- this is not a blonde ale. luttonm (6763) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Draft at their brewpub. Very pale yellow-gold beer. Quite dry and soft ale, as they say on the light lager end of things. Sweet, yeasty. Alright Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Bomber. Golden straw, ridiculously huge snow white rocky creamy head no matter how soft the pour. Aroma of citrus and mild malts. Taste is lemon citrus, lightly sweet pale malt, a hint of honey, low bitterness. Lively carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Clean, crisp and dry, a refreshing sessional quencher.
