From a growler fill at The Ram in Salem, Oregon.
Light amber color with a modest white head, good amount of lacings for the style.
Aroma is slight floral hops much better than a macro.
Taste is plenty of malt sweetness immediately smacked down by some real hop bitterness. Some real yeast flavors as well. Slightly dry finish. Tastes very Pilsner like but the malts and hops are bumped up a bit from that style. Overall an easy drinker with some decent character. When you are in the mood for a light bodied session beer give this a try. Oscbert (1319) - Lincoln, California, USA - MAY 12, 2009
~Very clear pale yellow color with creamy white head. Head redeems and brings it from a 2 to a 3.
~Coriander and yeast scent.
~Wheaty flavor with some citrus.
~Light feel, lingering wheat finish.
~Decent light brew. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Draught in a flight at the pub. Pours a very clear golden color. Nose has some wheat on there, with some light citrus elements coming through. Felt very smooth, like cream. Taste was very light, and just had a few grains in there. Meh. nuplastikk (6454) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2014
A pretty clean house light beer. Some dry, earthy clusterish hop tones. A touch too sweet, sugary for the style. Not the kind of beer I’d ever revisit, very macro-straightforward. Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2007
On tap at Ram - Wheeling, IL as "Chicago Blonde". Poured a clear, very bright golden with a short white head... dusting and a ring. Aroma was light and bready with an aire of lemon.. solid for the style. Flavor had an almost tangy bready base with hints of lemon and some herbal bitterness.. light and pleasant. Light-bodied.. a bit dry on the back half and quite refreshing.

Golden in color with a muted spicy hop aroma. Fairly bland up-front with the spicy, citrus flavors following it up. Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2007
On tap in a very well-priced sampler. Mild nose with hints of lemon. Light head, pale clear yellow color. Crisp bready flavor. Overall mild. sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Light aroma of corn, no carbonation, very light pils color, clear, light and crisp. No sweetness at all. Very balanced! BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Tap at the Schaumburg IL location. For a simple accessible blonde for the masses at a chain brewpub, this does not suck like many do. Clear pale gold pour with no head. Fairly sweet grain aroma and taste. Crisp palate. mcberko (18981) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a clear dull blonde with a small with head. Nose brings out straw and stale bready malt. Flavour brings out cereal malt, some straw and a light sweetness. There’s nothing wrong with this. Clean and drinkable, just unexciting.
