Had this one bottled thanks to Slothgar! Very nice floral and citrusy notes, lightly malty but not overpowering in any one area, very smooth and mild finish. I liked it. crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Reviewed at Doe in Heat.
Pours an extremely light gold with a short lived white head. Tiny bubbles are going crazy in the glass.
Has a sugary malt scent, not much by the way of hops.
Taste is list ang sugary with a hit of lactose. It is very carbonated.
It’s hard to find words for this brew, it is ok but nothing exciting really.
Serving type: bottle

12 ounce bottle from Metcalf’s (Hilldale) in Madison, WI, served cold in a pint glass. Very, very pale gold, light bubbling and a light cloud of yeast in the body, large fluffy white head lasts a good while but does diminish to a thin ring....some nice pale malts in the nose but also unfortunately a little soapy touch which however does mostly fade in a few minutes; also a hint of wood smoke...lightly to moderately sweet body, it’s all malt without a trace of bitterness, that smoky tinge in the nose results in a very faint toastiness at the finish...body is extremely full and juicy, but not at all sticky or hard to drink, with good natural carbonation and a nice light yeasty-bready quality. If the nose were only a little fresher this could be spectacular; as is, merely a very much above-average example of the style. Skyview (6021) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2008
On draught at the brewery tap room in Plover, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden light blonde brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a film top. Aroma of golden grain malts, fruity pear and apple character, with some noble hops. Taste is light bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of golden grain malt, noble/grassy hops with a touch of apple. Finish has a semi-dry pear fruit aftertaste with some mild bitterness. Neat packaging idea by placing one bottle of Buck in Rut with five Doe in Heat bottles. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2013
12oz bottle thanks to nuplastikk: pours a clear pale golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some earthy noble hops. Starts with decent fullness and effervescent carbonation with mild pale malty sweetness well-balanced with a crisp herbal hoppy bitterness before a drier finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

Seen this one and reminded me of my hunting back in the day. Decent lemon zest aroma. Hazy yellow bdy with decent head. Flavor was better than aroma some sour lemon zest and somewhat soapy. Easy drinkable brew while playing cards on NYE 09 esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Cloudy banana yellow with a small white head, gone. Aroma of sweet malt, grains, corn and fruit. Taste of malt, light fruit and a touch of lemon. Effervescent and easy drinking, refreshing and okay, but that’s about it. valpoaj (744) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle pour, and admittedly purchased this bottle for the incredible artwork (thanks mixed sixer display with some stuff I wanted to try). Extremely pale yellow color with a decent sized white head...aroma is corn and sweet malt...mild fruit notes...nothing offensive. Flavor is, well, nothing bad, but that is because it is nearly non-existent. Could have swapped in a Michelob Ultra and I probably wouldn’t have asked who took my beer...some corn, mild sweetness...just not much here. Palate is medium carbonation...quite easy drinking. In fairness, there’s nothing wrong with this beer...it isn’t disgusting or loaded with off flavors, but just nothing much in the positive either...

Lucky enough to find the last six pack from at a local gas-station. Pours light golden clear with thin white head... doesn’t last long. Lighter flavor. Aroma of malts, light fruit and a bit of apple and hops. Unique packaging idea, drinkable but average. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Bottled at Bomb Shelter. Poured clear, straw golden with a synthetic cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and pale malts over some berries and a touch of corn.. sweet overall and pleasant. The flavor found more honey and slight creamed corn at the base.. dry and scratchy around from tight carbonation and berry bitterness.. semi-sweet finish with pale malts and more berries. Light-bodied and scratchy on the palate.. too much adjuncty sweetness and carbonation.. OK at best.
