I'd prefer some macros over this, but not bad at all. Nice biscuit flavors on the finish and the aftertaste is fantastic. Not so crazy about the initial taste though. Very light, sessionable beer.

Had this on 2015-03-17 in Columbia, PA from a can

A - Fairly-hazy golden-yellow with a 3/4-finger head that fades quickly leaving little lace.

S - Sourdough bread, lemon, old hops.

T - Biscuit, grass, light pine, light citrus. Mild bitterness with a bit of residual sweetness. Pretty decent flavor.

M - Thin body and medium carbonation. Smooth and refreshing.

O - A decent session brew that isn't hop/bitter tea at all. The initial aroma wasn't wonderful but once I had my first taste, the aroma and flavor blended in a good way.

A- A little cloudy yellow orange. A surprising amount of lacing from a blonde beer. And a surprising amount of cloudyness as well.

S- A little lemon juice. Some mineraness/limestone or maybe tin.

T- Very lemony. Light malt like basic pancakes.

M- Very quaffable and light. You could put away a couple of these.

O- Enjoyable and not complicated. It tastes more like a wheat beer than a blonde, but good.

Canned on 11/26/2014. Sampled and reviewed on February 15, 2015.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a shaker. Pours a light golden/orange color with lots of carbonation. About 1 finger width of head. Smells of grass, grain, wheat, slight hint of wood or dirt. Upon tasting, a slight presence of both hops and malt. Taste is grassy, but quite rich and sweet. Light on the palate. Easy drinking, for sure. Has somewhat of a dry finish and a sweet aftertaste.

Overall, this is a good effort by the Boys. I honestly think this one tastes better straight from the can, but maybe that's just because I've been drinking it that way for some time now. This was the first time I've put it in a glass, and I don't think I'll be doing it again. This beer is nothing fancy, but doesn't claim to be. A good beer for working around your garage or fishing the Ohio.

On tap at BWW, Beckley WV

A- pours a pale and clear yellow-straw color with a small creamy white head that reduces to a film floating on top, some lace left behind

S- toasted grain and crackers, trace of floral hop

T- light toasted grain with just a trace of floral and citrus hop, dry finish with a hint of malty sweetness

M- light-medium body with medium biting carbonation leads to a dry and crisp finish

O- easy drinking and approachable, good if you're in a light beer mood

Received as an extra in a trade. Not a huge fan of the style, it was refreshing but exceedingly average.
