Pours a pale copper with a dense creamy white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma is corn, light fruit, citrus and yeast. Flavor is more hoppy than a typical pale lager, very floral and lemony. Malt is present but only to balance the brew. Medium bodied, dry finish. Not a bad beer.

Purchased from the Market Basket in Brookfield, WI. Pours a light yellow or "blonde" color with a finger of white foam. Sweet malt and citrus aroma. Faint hop flavor and minimal bitterness. Light bodied and crisp, just a little bit of a dry finish. I wish I had some wings to go with this beer for which their website claims the beer was invented. This is not a bad beer, just not that great.

From The Dead Man's Chest
Nov 8th 08

Crystal Clear BLonde body with a viggorus head that quickly dissapates into a light dusting. Crisp and cracker like malt profile with a slight citric hoppyness in the end. This blonde is light and frilly, you get some wheat and a bit of hops. It seems balanced and simple. What you would drink if you didn't want to think about it. Pair with a spring roll or a grilled walleye.

I ordered this beer because I'd never heard of it and they had it on tap at the Transfer Pizzeria on Mitchell in Milwaukee alongside some Lakefront taps. From the name, i was expecting a blonde ale and hopeful to get some nice fruitiness from this beer, and was a bit disappointed by what I got. A blonde lager, offering not much flavor other than some tinges of metallic. Not bad, but flavor-wise reminded me a bit of a Kolsch. OK, but not really recommendable nor worthy of any serious searching.

Appearance was a slightly hazy blond. Aroma was non-existent. Flavor was faintly (if I used my imagination) malty, but offered more metallicness than anything else. Mouthfeel was pretty thin.
