Originally reviewed: 12/30/09. Grabbed a bottle of this when I was in WI for the holidays. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy light gold with no head at all. Some very light lace sticks. Scents of veggies, grains, and a kiss of honey on the finish.
Good crisp, clean body on this beer. Very tame and mild in the flavor dept. There is a nice hop presence though with a mild bitter kick. Some good bready flavor mixed with a sweet backing. This is what it is. Drinkability is high as it is unoffensive and tame. I, for one, liked it. Great for barbecues and campouts in the great WI outdoors. nuplastikk (6630) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 29, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2009 12oz bottle. Thick, hazy golden-tan color. Big white head. Pretty attractive considering it’s advertised as their lightest offering. The aroma is sweet, with a touch of corn and vanilla. Very creamy, light to medium bodied. Quite refreshing, smooth finish. Certainly above par for your light offering, but has a slightly unclean taste that starts to pervade towards the end. FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 2, 2010

A - Hazy, cloudy, dusty gold color with an average sized, foamy, cloud-like, soapy white head. Average retention with a pretty good creamy layer of lace left.
S - Some cracker and pale malt aroma. Grainy aroma comes out a bit stronger in subsequent sniffs. A touch of lemony citrus rind. Fairly sweet with a touch of spicy aroma.
T - Some sweet pale malt and a touch of cracker/bread flavor. Fairly strong apple taste comes out along with some lemon rind. A strong grainy taste with a bit of toasted flavor along with it. Very faint grassy taste as well.
M - Lighter side of medium body with a nice level of carbonation. The more I drink, it seems to get a bit smoother and creamier. Nice feel.
D - Easy to drink with a nice mix of flavors. Quite refreshing with a nice body.
Notes: Nice, easy to drink beer with a nice mix of flavors. Pretty tasty, not going to blow anyone away, but a solid choice (especially on a warm day). jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Pours a beautiful gold into the glass with a thin white head and lots of effervesence. Nose is yeast and bread. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is bakery bread, very smooth, no bitterness, slightly sweet. A good companion to ham and cheese on rye. beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2006
(02.18.06) Sampled at FebFest ’06, Libertyville, IL. Served from a 12 oz brown bottle. Pours clear golden with small white head. Medium bodied ale with moderate malt sweetness and toasty malt flavor. Finishes with light malt fade. Very sweet tasting but not cloying. No perceptible hop presence. A good drinkable malty ale.

Pours a healthy clear amber gold with an inch of soft white foam. Good head retention, adequate lacing. Impressive aroma of malt and peppery hops.
Very dry flavor of toasted malt - nothing at all like the aroma. Pretty much the same flavor all the way through to the finish, where a mild citrus bitterness kicks in. A little bitterness lingers into the aftertaste. Light body, good carbonation.

On tap at Sand Creek tap room. Served a nice mid-gold with a light head/lace combo. Aroma of slightly sweet malts and grain. Taste was similar - front-end was malty followed by the taste of grains with a light hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall, a nice light malt/grain ale. beerbaaron (1997) - Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Hazy light golden color. Small white head that actually lasted till the last sip! Aroma was buttery, grains, sweet malt. Flavor of the same sweet maltiness, grain, touch of sweetness (honey). Creamyish and refreshing. Not nearly as thin and watery as most blond/golden ales. Nice body I think JPDIPSO (6317) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 24, 2003
Slightly hazed golden liquid with an off white smallish head. Malt and orange aromas with hints of light spice (clove & cardamom), somewhat like wassail. Initial dry malt flavor followed by a light herbal hoppiness. Somewhat like a heavy lager with a ale yeast character. Finishes dry and uneventful, but a decently crafted brew with no real faults.
