One of my least favorite of all Widmers beers, this is way to watery and bland for my tastes.

Another find in the old paper. 7 or 8 years old. Described as bready, citrus, clean. Not much hop. (I didn’t really like most blonde ales, but this one seems to have been appreciated). RateBeer is a big improvement over the old messy inefficient way of keeping track of things. Odd bits of paper to little note book/pads to Excel to RateBeer. Ad zythum per aspera.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Cereal aroma with what smells like Liberty hops (slightly cheesy, funky). Crystal clear straw colored with small head. Completely neutral flavor starts with slight biscuit flavor on the finish. Thin mouthfeel. A truly unremarkable (but no real flaws) beer. Not sure I’ve ever had something that was so flavorless.

Cloudy and nasty, why does Widmer have to suck so much arse? It is a lovely shade of piss yellow though, can’t beat that!

Not a big fan of this style of beer typically, but in the summer time this one would pass for a nice daily drink.

Excellent light beer, very clean pure taste. Like all Widmer beers this beer is slightly cloudy.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2005
This was a nice beet that just needed a bit more to it. I was not impressed with this beer. I felt it just was a ber and no extremeness to it. I was at an event where we should have had beer that was odd and off the wall to try and this was just a easy beer to get anywhere.

3.4

Bottle poured a nice golden yellow with a small head and lacing. Aroma is light malt,crisp,light hops. Flavor is creamy with light hops with a a clean easy finish. Not bad at all.
