On tap at GR Brewing Co. Honey aroma. Really great smelling. Pours a pale clear golden. Really smooth.

Draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks solid; a transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of mild citrus and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a bit more of a hop presence. Mouthfeel is medium light-bodied. A decent sessionable hoppy lager.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Draft @ brewery. Very, very light barley malt aroma. Pale yellow with a moderate white head. Creamy barley malt flavor. Body on the light side of medium, soft carbonation.

Draft. Pours a light straw yellow. Aroma and taste are light malts. Nothing memorable.

2.3
Daytonbeer (730) - Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours light gold with white head and no lacing. Aroma of lemon, orange, and floral hops. Taste is bitter. Feel is watery. Finishes mild dry.

emacgee (4697) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pale, almost white with thin white head. Nose is grainy and a touch skunky. Apple skins. Bready. Weak flavor, wet bread/skunked. Light bodied/dry. Medium light bitterness.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Part of a paddle at GRBC. Appearance: No head. No lacing. Pale yellow. Most adjunct lagers at least have a nice head after a pour... Smell: Corny sweetness. Smelling like a Budweiser or really any other typical adjunct lager. Not all that great, but at least it’s inoffensive. Taste/feel: Pretty highly carbonated. Light. Corny with some grain. There’s just nothing special about it at all. Easy drinking and wouldn’t turn off anybody who typically drinks adjunct lagers, as it IS better than the vast majority of those.

2.6
esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2013
On tap at Grand Rapids Brewing Co. Hazy straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is grainy and yeasty with a mild noble hop quality. Taste of light corn, grains and sweet malt. Meh.

3.5
rumproasts (5470) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Tap. Pale golden with small head. I’m sure I’m crazy, but there’s almost a floral vanilla. Light body, but excellent flavor. Unique.

2.8
kaser (6364) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Had a draft at their brewery. Super average. Dry and slight fruit taste. Can't say anything good or bad
