Not too bad. I had been drinking Milwaukee’s Best Light all night so trying this one was a pleasant change of scenery. i just remember it not having too much taste. But what taste it had wasn’t bad, but wasn’t really good. I would probably try it again if somebody offered it to me.
"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 (6853) - 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 (9074) - 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.
