On tap at the Ram.

(A)- Pours a hazy golden orange color. Some tan froth.

(S)- Lightly grainy. Some cracker meal and a greenish hop/lemon finish.

(T)- Similar to the smell. Lightly grainy with bits of lemon, cracker, and a greenish grass hop profile.

(M)- A good carbonation level. A clean balance and finish. Smooth and crisp, though the grassy hops quickly overpowered the rest of this beer taste-wise.

(D)- Not bad for the style. A decent summer brew.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the brewpub.

At least at this location (Wheeling), this beer's also referred to as Chicago Blonde. It pours a clear gold topped by a half-finger of white micro-foam. The nose comprises light caramel, wet hay, and miscellaneous greens. The taste holds notes of coriander, greens, light toffee, light tobacco, and cracked pepper. Things just didn't quite mesh very well. The body is a hefty medium light, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, I gotta say I wasn't a fan o' this brew: The flavors and smells just didn't mingle in my 'strils in a very merry way at all.

Pours a clear copper, thick white head forms, nice lacing and great retention. Smell is pine and citrus, some floral, caramel, grains, pretty good, although they serve their beer pretty cold. Taste is light citrus, caramel, some pine, grains, bread, little weak in the finish, light bitterness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Refreshing pale ale, not great but drinkable.
