Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is bread, malt, touch of hops. Flavor is cereal, bread, malts, light hops, touch of citrus. The can is substantially better than the bottle I had a while back. Decent Golden / Blond. beerwhore69 (7) - Northglenn, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2009 does not count
Just tried out of the can for the first time. Way better than bottle. All the same staples of the bottle, just ten times smoother. yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Pours brilliant golden with lacey white head. Nose has a light herbal hop quality, with cereal/grain and bready aromas. Palate is rather uninteresting with a light malt, more cereal flavors, and light hops to balance. Easy drinking, but only because it lacks much to savor.

Pale lager appearance. Grainy smell with bits of must and citrus. Taste is strikingly similar to the aroma. Decent, but stagnant. jr1610 (19) - San Marcos, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2009
Aroma is grassy, malty with a splash of hops, lightly fruity, with earthy undertones. Pretty well balanced. Appearance is a golden yellow. Almost looks like a big glass of sunshine. Disappearing white head, almost nonexistent carbonation. Pretty watery with a hopish finish. Tastes a bit sweet, probably the honey. Malty. Goes down alright. Overall, it’s okay. Haven’t been a big fan of Golden or Blonde Ales, and this one doesn’t make a good argument to become a fan. Average.

Pours gold with a small lasting white head. Aroma is very lager-esque, with notes of white bread, corn, and a slight trace of honey, since I know to look for it. Tastes crisp and easy with breadcrust, corn, and straw-like astringency. Finishes like buttered toast. Light bodied, high carbonation, easy to drink and not feel buzzed if you’re worried about that. Eh. I’d much rather have the Pinstripe Red. SudsMcDuff (8496) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - APR 14, 2009

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a clear gold with white head. Aroma of light fruit, faint honey, malt. Flavor of light fruit/citrus, malt, faint honey, faint hop bitter in the back. Mouth feel is light-medium body with high carbonation. Over all, not really all that bad... lb4lb (2632) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2009
Pous slightly hazy golden with short lived white head. Smell is balanced malt and earthy, grassy hops. Taste is a bit grassy, malty but not syrupy or particularly sweet, and finishes fairly crisply and cleanly. Medium body and carbonation. Touch of hops and lemon on the finish. Perfectly drinkable. Either this is super fresh, which is possible as this just showed up on shelves this week, or it’s not as bad as the reviews say. BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a clear pale yellow body with a white foamy head on top. Aroma is grassy, light caramel, straw, corn and a bit of honey. Taste is grainy and corny with light bitterness. A bit of dust to the taste. Fizzy and dry.
