Pours a hazy orange with a finger of foam, it sticks around for a couple minutes before dissipating after the first sip. Some minor lacing, and visible suspended micro sediment when held to the light.

Smells very faint, not much of anything to report here. Apple esters from the yeast barely surface.

Slight astringency, yeast and nondescript graininess dominate the lackluster taste. Vague aftertaste of orange candy. Feels watery and limp, seltzery carbonation, pretty dull overall. Murrrica.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Let's see if the Blonde can impress me where the ... naw, the Veteran is bald in my head ... failed to really do so. It pours a hazy afternoon straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light hard water, light vague grain, a hint of grass, and what may or may not be a faint whisper of yeast. The taste brings in more of the same, the vagueness, lack of character, and just straight-up blandness standing as tall in the saddle as it can with those useless legs. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, this was just a boring, bland bit of nothing. If I want to drink something with little to no flavor, I'll just drink water.

This pours a slightly hazy, yellow color with a foamy white head. The aroma is mild with the summer aroma of wheat and citrus. The taste is smooth and easy drinking. Simple grain, wheat, and citrus flavors quench the palette. Nothing special by any stretch of the imagination but it is smooth and easy to drink for a beginning beer drinker. Leaves a slight lingering dry, grain after taste.
