Smells like a malty pale lager, looks the same. Mostly this doesn’t seem much like an ale at all to me, more like a bad pale lager. Quite a bit of malt up front, a thin finish. There’s a slim chance I’ll buy this again.

thedm (6275) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2010
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a and a fair lacing. The aroma was orange peel and lagerish. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

JPDIPSO (6257) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Light golden color with a diminished off-white head. Pale malt, grain and grass in the aroma. Starts with bits of malt and honey in the flavor. Middle has some hay and grass. FInish gets drier with more grain and hay. Feels is a little prickly, but ok. A simple, boring ale.

hayduke (5599) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 23, 2009
This was from a six pack costing $8.49 in Clarkston, WA. It poured a clear gold color with a fat white head and light lacing .Nose is very mild and shows grainy corn like odors. Very light mouthfeel. Fl;avor is mostly corn, and the finish is dry. A light beer for the masses is about it. Drinkable.

Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2009
Bottle from Binny’s beverage Depot In Orland Park, Illinois: It seems from the description ("a crisp, refreshing ale without the extra calories") that this is bland by design. Clear yellow/gold in body, it’s capped by a short-lived little head. No lace. The light aroma is honeyed grainy malt, and that’s what it tastes like, too. There’s a dash of grassy bitterness at the end that lingers a while. Okay for a lawnmower brew.

Poured a golden color, aromas of malt, grain, hay, and grass, little citrus to it. Flavors are the same, ok beer overall, not my first choice from RedHook though.

Tasted at the San Diego International Beer Festival. Clear yellow with a fizzy head. Faint malty aroma. Dry cereal grain taste.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle:Slim chance? Wow, that’s a setup. Light flavor and hop for low calories? Novel! Light husky malts and a crisp fairly bright hop note. Malty body, thin finish. There’s a slim chance I’ll drink it again.

2.5
Aurelius (5425) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Pleasant, sweet, lightly honey-fruity aroma. Bright, clear, specimen gold with a very fne-grained lacy head. Ho-hum label, bottle, packaging. Crisp, dry. Light tonic bitterness and acidity. Aftertaste had some issues, and it hung a little too long on the sides of the back of the tongue. Medium light body. Bunt single, hot weather beer.

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - APR 21, 2009
Sampled on 4/21/2009. This light/blond ale pours a medium yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and grassy, touch of sweetness. A light bodied blonde ale, designed as a light beer. The malts are grassy, fruity and slightly sweet. The hops are slightly spicy and grassy. The description of this beer as a light blond ale fits this beer fairly well. It has some flavors but they are so light it’s hard to figure out if this beer is good or bad. It’s a hot day here so it doesn’t taste all that bad. Kinda fizzy, but light and refreshing. If you want something low in alcohol that still has some flavor this might be a good choice. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is crisp and dry. Rather nice really. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
