"Not bad, not something I’ll likely have again. This mild ale is obviously pretty light in aroma, body, flavor...hints of earthy matiness, dark fruit and a hint of hop bite." RobertDale (6988) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 9, 2011
12 ounce bottle from local store. Can’t tell year, hope it wasn’t too old. Pours an orange gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt and grass. Taste is mild hops, citrus and some hops. Average at best. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2016 Had at Lakefront brewery. Not a particularly complex ale but if you needed a easy drinking session beer and didn’t want a pale lager this would be a nice bet. Too bad it is retired. Serving: Tap swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2010

Bottle from a mix 8 pack. Says that it was bottled in late December (week 4) of 2009, so I don’t think it is retired. Pours with a hazed golden body with minimum white head. Aroma of earthy and a bit bitter. Slight spicy hop, and a similar lactic quality to the one found in Guinness of all things. Taste is slightly fruity, lightly lactic, grainy and watery. A bit of pitted fruit. Not much going on. Medium bubbles. Dryish finish with a touch of sourness.

A: Pours a nice light clear yellow hue with a tall foamy white head. Okay retention with just a spot or two of lace.
S: Very sweet malty aromas. Lots of fresh bread with hints of cream of corn.
T: Malty sweet up front. Mildly doughy with the corn coming through. There is a wonderful hop addition though to balance all the sweetness. Mild citrus notes with a nice bit of bitter floral and grassy hops in the finish.
M: Light in body, smooth, sparkling carbonation.
D: Good, for a lighter beer this one really packs a punch. Too bad they retired it cause it is the best Lakefront beer I have ever had. Beats all the light Macro swill by a mile.
For what it is, a real solid beer. SuIIy (1984) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 2, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours an orangeish color with a huge foamy white head. Head stays at around 1.5 fingers. Nose is grassy with a light straw and toast malt note. Palate is fizzy and stingy with a medium feel. Flavors are grass and straw, hay, etc with some light toast and lots of foam and fizz. 17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2009
12oz bottle. INFECTION!!! woooooo INFECTION! but its seems to be a positive thing for this beer so I shall rate it! The description of this beer is quite odd. Pours a very clear glowing golden with a medium foamy sudsy white head. Aroma is fruity, lightly sweet and tangy, some sour, touch of acidity and maybe some brett. Wow... It’s almost lambic-like, which make sense as its now a funky low-alcohol blonde ale. Flavor is fairly sharp, some acetic, loads of funky cheesy brett, light hard-candy caramel glassy sweetness, but mostly dry. Med/light bodied with larger somewhat corse soda carbonation, quite dry. Happy infection here. jjkuck10 (66) - , Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Appearance is yellow, slightly orange color with mild off white head. Aroma is bitter, yeasty smell with a grassy, malt, sharp hops taste. drowland (9186) - Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Had this from a mix 12-pack I picked up while visiting Milwaukee. A solid ale, but nothing special by any means.
