On tap at the John Harvards Brewhouse in Wayne, PA. Poured a light straw color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of corn and light grassy hops. Lightly malty sweet with a light hop taste as well. Very thin and light body. hopscotch (11175) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2005 Draft... DC location... Sparkling clear, yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Well-balanced with some subtle notes of honey and mash. Light-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, clean finish. Surprisingly good for the style as it’s not among my favorites. Refreshing! DocLock (10836) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2004
A standard light. Maybe patriotic, but not necessarily all-american. Nothing exceptional here, but women and rednecks will love it. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2004
i felt like a bit of a moron for tasting this but it was 11 in the morning and i wasn´t feeling the best so it seemed smart. very pale, no flavour other than sugar and grain chriso (7583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2004
I guess a lot of brewpubs feel the need to brew something like this to cater for the unenlightened masses, but it’s not really a very interesting style. Very pale gold colour. Adjuncty aroma with plenty of wet cardboard too. Dull mouthfeel, with a sweetish finish. Didn’t taste too fresh. On tap at John Harvard’s, Washington DC.

Draft sample at the source. The beer is a clear yellow with a white head of foam. Bready and doughy taste. Sweet. Light body and medium carbonation. ClarkVV (6825) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Two draught pints at Wayne, PA location on 10/06/06egajdzis (6673) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Clear light, hay-yellow body is pretty standard, with a flurry of carbonation at first and a small, fully dissipating white head that leaves no lacing.
Very weak aroma is faintly grassy, sort of mossy as well, with a sticky sort of fruitiness that combines with light powdered sugariness to rather repel the senses. Not a whole lot going on, things just seem sort of stagnant and dominated by water and plain old two row. No yeast apparency and no diacetyl in the nose.
Touch of cardboard/paperiness is apparent right away, with a hint of buttercream and light corn-like sweetness. It’s all rather subtle though, and mostly covered by water and grainy malt that is mostly attenuated. Hops are minimal, with just a hint of dustiness and dry grass. Soggy, with heavily loosening carbonation, but overall, at least the malt is still there and there are no glaring flaws. Could stand to be lagered longer. Bit of sharpness on the end.
Springfield, PA location... Poured a golden color with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma of dirty taps, and a trace of hops. Taste was malty, corn, and alittle hops as well. Despite the smell, this was very refreshing. ben4321 (6607) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2015

Location: Draft at the Union Station brewpub (Providence), 3/28/15
Aroma: The nose is pale malts, some straw and adjunct notes as well.
Appearance: This one is clear gold in color, with an average sized white head, and decent lace.
Flavor: It has a pretty similar flavor, not a ton here, lightly sweet, malty, mild bitter.
Palate: This one actually has a nice feel, it is pretty easy drinking, clean, and not watery.
This is a decent one for a light lager. There isn’t a ton here, but it works well from a feel perspective and it looks pretty nice.
Light aroma of Cascade hops. Hoppy, fizzy. Some shrimpy and shellfish iodine qualities. Dry and a bit tart. Fizzy water body with a long hoppy finish. Union Station, Providence, RI.
