seymour (1957) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Tasted bottle from mix pack into standard pint glass. Poured a clear, light golden color with fluffy white foam, somewhat lasting with a little lace. Aroma of grass, toast, distant noble hops, very faint roasted barley and even fainter fruity yeast phenols. Flavor is almost entirely neutral, but hints of malt-sweetness, hops bitterness, and just a little apricot. This isnt a spicy Belgian blond ale, and its not a crisp, clean lager either. Its something in between; not bad but kind of bland and boring. Still drinkable and relatively refreshing, would be good with rich food.

scooterbub (1051) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 24, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear gold color and has a nice, one inch, white head that slowly fades. Taste is of malt, barley, honey, grass and some hops. Similar aroma. Has a decent body. There is a slight bitterness towards the end. Not as easy to drink as I thought it would be. Not bad, but not worth getting again.

Bottle. Clear golden with white head. Aromas of cereal, caramel, honey, grass. Flavors of cereal, honey, caramel. Balanced finish. Medium-thin body with soapy mouthfeel and moderate,low carbonation. Not very enticing but flawless. Great session beer.

jandd1983 (4153) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - FEB 12, 2011
An average beer. Clear gold with little head. Taste is wheaty, and little sweet and lemony, kind of like a Natty Light. A good beer, but nothing spectacular. A better alternative to Natty Light.

ThaJuggernaut (309) - Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Beer is ok. Has a citrus tint to it. Has frothy head. Has a good pour but the aroma is not appealing. My suggestion would be a different beer in most circumstances

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Tap, Pour 24, Las Vegas, Nevada. Dusty yellow with a scant white halo. Heavy diacetyl aroma with underlying hop greenery and..banana? Fizzy and brain-chillingly cold with notes of lemon jelly, biscuit and butter. Some orange and lychee on the belch. Not loved or looked after. Probably much better than this.

GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Pours deep gold with frothy white head and foamy lacing. Notes of wheat and citrus. Well balanced taste with a slight hint of hops in the finish. Crisp and sessionable.
