16oz can from Binnys. Pours a crystal clear straw color with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, but not much else. Medium on the palate with medium carbonation. Very mild flavor with traces of malt and hops. At 4.2%, I could drink a few of these.

Draft at the Hilton Chicago bar, several times. Pours golden with a dissipating white head. Fruity aroma. Light bodied without the watery mouthfeel. Nice pale pilsneresque malt backbone countered with a very nice lemon and pine bitterness. Semi dry finish, with a hint of tannins and grass. Excellent session beer.

On tap at Sopo in Chicago. Pours a cloudy, golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, mostly white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is wheat, some earth, citrus, lemon-grass, and florals. Flavor is similar. Biscuity wheat with a light and grainy sweetness, citrusy lemon-grass, earth, and florals. Finishes with a light, earthy and grassy bitterness that is crisp and dry before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and light-moderate carbonation. Overall, a crisp, easy drinking golden ale. Some nice hop flavors are clearly present making this a go to at a bar like this.

[3477-20101113] 1pt can. Fresh straw yeast aroma has a fragrant floral sweetness. Clear, yellow orange body with a quick creamy white head. Light bitter grassy flower petals flavour has a light floral perfume aftertaste. Medium body. Pretty good, drinkable.

16 oz can. Crystal clear dark gold with a brief white head. Nose is lemon pith and pudding, orange and toffee. Crisp medium light with a buzz. Taste is bright citrus, candi, vanilla and grass. Great flavor for a low ABV.

2010-11-13. Pale golden yellow body with a small white head. Modest aroma, interesting hop character with a sort of floral, green grass character, with hints of lemon or lemon grass. Flavour is fairly mild, light fruity hops have mild lemon and grass notes. 6+ Average to light palate. Pretty quaffable and enjoyable but very light overall. Too mild. Can shared by Blankboy

My ranking may be a little skewed, as I had a pale ale before this. Smelled a bit citrusy and on the sweeter side. Poured a hazy golden with a soft, white head. Tasted on the sweeter side, with hints of orange. Very light body and a nice finish. Easy going beer, preferable at lunch and/or summer time

Its OK. Im a hop-head, so the Belgian-like flavor, palate and body dont quite work for me. Its pleasant, but not my preference.

Enjoyed on tap at Fountainhead in Chicago, IL two days before running in the Chicago Marathon. Really good blonde ale. Clearish yellow in appearance, aroma is of a good hop presence with light yeast. Taste is very crisp, good malt/hop balance, very refreshing.

16 oz. can from stevemastny and mattarata- thanks again for the four-pack, guys! I cracked these open during a Sunday session while watching NFL games with some buddies, and everyone loved this. Pours a clear, bright orange-golden color with a small cream-colored head. Aroma of lemon citrus, herbal hops, grass, pine, and biscuity malts. Flavor of pine resin, grassy, herbal hops, biscuity malts, lemon, orange, and floral notes. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fresh, herbal mouthfeel. A 4.2% golden ale might not sound exciting on paper, but this is excellent.
