Tap at Callahan’s. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit malt and light earthy hops. Flavor is sweet biscuit malt, light earthy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
A: This is one of the paler beers I’ve come across in quite some time. The most feeble of yellow hues keep this one from being clear.
S: The nose is similarly lifeless, offering not much more than a touch of sweet grain/malt.
T: To my surprise, there actually was a flavor to the beer! Though it mostly consists of sweet malts, there is a touch of bitterness and perhaps some floral hops.
M: As you might expect, the body is light and the carbonation is plentiful. But, it’s somewhat necessary for this beer.
D: One of those beers that’s made for the Bud Light crowd. I can see how this is a choice for some, but I’d prefer a beer with a bit more going on. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 23, 2009

Draft at brewery. Yep, thier answer to what the masses want. Not really very exciting. Bready aromas and some slight hop bitterness. Just pretty plain. RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2005
Every brewpub has to have one of these to appeal to the Bud drinkers. To Callahan’s credit, it is better at this style than many others. Golden in color with small white head. Same funky aroma that most Bud drinkers crave. Lightly hopped and lacking in malt body.
