Drake (13738) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Keg at the brewpub. Clear golden, large creamy white head, decent retention. Aroma of doughy malt, mild grassy hops. Taste is white bread, grassy hops, a mild bit of fruit. Thin, biscuity, dry, high carbonation.

Very light colour with lace and a bit of head. Fresh crisp and dry. Light mouthfeel. Hoppy golden and tasty malt profile. Popular, as I think this is what’s offered as a macro brew repalcement.. Lager like but with hops. A

Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear mellow yellow with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a lots of straw and a bit of sweetness supporting. Flavor combines corn and straw with a slight sweetness in the finish.

clear yellow, fine white head, lots of spidery lace, sweet malt aroma with a touch of corn, well bittered hop flavor with a long biter finish, enough malt to balance but the bitterness is the main profile,

FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Sampled on draft at the Cranberry Twp PA location this beer poured a pale golden color with a small white head. The aroma is faint sweet light malts. The flavor is light sour and tangy malts with a dry finish. Rather blah.

Strykzone (7360) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Sampled at the brewpub. Clear golden a white ring. I taste grain, mild pale malts, and soft hops. The feel is thin and the flavor is, too. The hops help carry this one. A bit of yeast is evident. Not bad but not my favorite here.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the Wausau brewpub on 6/24/07: Pours a transparent bright golden with a clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of faintly sweet malt and some fairly fresh floral hops. Body is lightly grainy and pale malty sweet with some earthy bittering hoppy balance toward a crisp finish. A pretty decent blonde ale.

JK (6161) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Thanks to Skyview again. Light hay and corn aroma. A little corn and sugar sweetness. Gold color. A very simple session beer that has little to offer, but is not offensive.

Skyview (6055) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Picked up a single 22 oz bottle at Trig’s in Wausau, WI. (Ironic I did not even stop at the brewpub in town) Pours a semi-cloudy golden yellow brew with an average size white head. Aroma is very light, with hints of grass, hay, some citrus and cardboard. Flavor is better with corn malt, a hint of citrus and mild flowery hops. Carbonation is light with a medium/light body. Finish is a little flat. I put this into the lawn mower beer catagory.

cheap (5860) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2007
AHHHHH, such a nice place, this brewpub. H&H white tail ale. On tap at the Cranberry Twp brewpub near Pittsburgh PA. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head. Very nice sweet aroma, almost like flowery coconuts. Flavor is a mild bitterness and carbonation is good to medium low. Says it has low levels of hop bitterness. But I don’t sense any at all. Finish does have some personality like a mild ale. The only other golden I’ve had is Kocks Golden anniversary. This is certainly as good, probably much better than than.
