A rich, creamy golden colored ale fermented at a cool temperature to give a clean finish. Hints of yeasty bread and a touch of hops combine to make a beer that is truly more than the sum of its parts.

Poured into snifter.

A- Pours a hazy copper to yellow with a small frothy head that recedes quickly. No lacing.

S- Good wheat and bread and a slight overall sweetness. Little to no hop aroma.

T- Slightly astringent, with a lot of wheat/bread and a small amount of spicy hops.

M- Very dry but not thin.

D- It is a good beer for a hot day, there is little complexity. I really liked the small amount of hop spice, I just really wish there was a lot more.

A: Copper, slightly cloudy

S: Like biscuit, with a little fruit, some hop... nice...

T: A little tart, blander than I expected but still nice. The smell actually over sells it. Still a good beer.

M: Perfect

D: I could kill a case of cans on the river.

had high hopes for this as the brewery is right up the road. poured first can in perfect pint and the head quickly disapated w/no lacing. second bad sign was non-existant smell. i tried a second and wondered if the 6'er i bought at specs was tainted. ended up drain pouring the last 1/3 which is not my style.

i have 4 left and will pawn them off on neighbors to see if somethings amiss.

not bad at all. I could easily kill a six pack of these on a hot afternoon. Very light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side, but other than that I would never complain about being handed one of these.

These are just over $5 for a 6er at my local specs. My uncle who swears by coors light drank a can and said it was good. That says something for a man who's never had anything other than coors his whole life.

Yet another quality beer from Southern Star. Pours golden with a 1/2 inch pillow of white head that fades rather quickly to a thin layer. Smell is of sweet maltiness and a hint of hops but just a hint. The taste is just like the smell, sweet and citrusy and balanced extremely well. The carbonation is perfect giving this beer a creamy texture. Truly a great session beer.

Good beer for those who like American Blonde Ales. I am not particularly a fan of this style but wouldn't mind drinking this one if there were no other styles available.

Good taste when you drink it but the aftertaste is not to my preference. The fact that it comes in a can is not optimal, I think that bottle would help the way this beer is drank.
