Pale lager flavor with the body of an ale. Somewhat grainy consistency, flavors of pale malts and corn. Unassuming hops back it up. All of this may sound like a knock on this beer, but for what this beer is, it is pretty damn good. An unassuming, easy to drink pale lager style beer with body and charachter.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2006 Bottle... Murky, yellow ale. Citrusy, herbal nose with notes of lemon, corn and fuzzy fruits. Decently-balanced flavor... maybe a whisper on the sweet side. A tad tart. Light to medium-bodied and almost creamy with moderate carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Refreshing. Thanks go out to my lifelong friend Shawn for the brew and excellent conversation. csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - APR 26, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 Honey, lightly kilned malt, subtle floral hops. Straw colored, bone white head. Slightly hazy. Taste is watery, light malt with a crisp finish and some lingering subtle floral hops. Moderately thin bodied. Easy to drink and refreshing.

I’m pretty sure I had this last year at Wakarusa. I got it from some hippie vendors from WI. Light gold color, plenty of floaties. Aroma is light and yeasty. Taste is light with some bitterness and/or pleasant sourness. The finish is mildly fruity. Not bad for the style, but a weak style to be sure.
I had heard of this beer often and finally tasted it. Big letdown. There was absolutely nothing special about it. Hazy amber with a weak white head, there was no appreciable aroma. Maybe some citrus, modicum of malt. Weak and watery in the mouth. The flavor was lackluster. More in the class of a PBR or BMC. AlabastorJones (815) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2006
upon reading the bottle i have come to conclude that it actually says dank right on the bottle, vlenen dank! haven’t got a clue what vlenen means but I’ll go along with it, yellow cloud no head, offy yeast nose, tart citrus nip, zesty and slightly bitter, dermphhh

Golden, cloudy color. Smells like flowers and some hops. Taste of malt, corn and bread. Good beer for a summer day after you milk some cows in a barn. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 15, 2006
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, small head. Aroma is sweetish malty and hoppy. Flavour is very smooth and quite lame. Fruity hops meeting some malts. A bit acidic hints also. OK brew, but quite one-dimensional... TBone (18547) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 15, 2006
Bottled 12 oz.cssprain (16) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2006
Pale, a bit hazy yellow, small white head. Sourish fruity and malty aroma, cow is what pops up in to my mind. Quite witbier like nose with those fruits and some spices. Fruity (watermelon, ananas), malty, corn, very soft palate. Not very exciting beer.
Pours well, nice color. Sweet, smooth taste, very mild hop aftertaste. Not my favorite, but close. Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pretty transparent golden/yellow color. Aroma is slightly sweet and a little bit grainy. Flavor is also sweet with slight hops in the finish. This is smooth and unoffensive, but its lacking an identity. Nothing really defines it and I dont think I’ll particularly remember it, other than for the fact that I thought I was grabbing a NG Hop Hearty off of the shelf (they both have green labels) and was disappointed when I got home after a 3 hour drive from Madison and realized that in fact, it was not the Hop Hearty Ale... Oh well :)
