Had this one on draught in Wausau, Wisconsin. Dark yellow pour with a thin head that dissipated rapidly, a very nice blend of sweet, malty and bitter. This one doesn’t look like much but it’s very good.

auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2008
On tap at the Escanaba brewpub. Light lemon sour malt aroma. Pours a very pale lemon yellow. Rim in white. Flavor is a classic salty, grainy, lightly chewy malt backed with a bit of metallic/grassy hop flavor. Very low key, but clean, which I appreciate. This is actually a decent golden, with nice drinkability, crisp malt character and refreshing dry hop balance. Nothing really stands out but it’s a decent version. Finishes on a lightly sweet citrus hop bite and then closes out cleanly. Rather hoppy for the style actually and I think that’s what makes it work. Fresh, bright, clean. A good blonde.

Sammy (12769) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
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

Drake (14078) - 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.

Silphium (3198) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2007
On tap at the restaurant/brewpub in Escanaba. Clear straw body, medium off-white head. Grassy nose. Grassy, spicy, floral hops body with a crackery bite, quite full-flavored for the style. The bready malt features a touch of lemon. Dry, firm, bitter hops finish. Spritzy. Refreshing.

Since this dump (Hereford & Hops brewpub) doesn’t serve Blatz, I usually consume this swill when I’m at the H&H. Not great. Not bad. Just OK. Does not fill you with the "warm fuzzies" like a case of Blatz will. Believe it.

CaptainCougar (7634) - 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.

Nate (4296) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On tap. Mild bitter lemon smell, with some beany hoppiness and a bit of pils malt. Dull golden-yellow clear with big foamy white lacing head. Medium body, soft, with light carbonation. Starts with nice maltiness, light acidity and medium hop profile. Mild fruitiness, with medium-soft bitter finish. Light sweet grain finish and soft bitter after. Done well, subdued.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2007
This beer was decidedly....not bad. Nothing to write home about, but mildly hoppy enough to keep my interest. A pale blonde color with some maltiness, a fair amount of hops, and a few off-notes. I wouldn’t strongly recommend, but I don’t feel it is as bad as portrayed here.
