Pours to a thin low head, brilliant clarity and straw color. Aroma is sour, slightly buttery (OK by me) and grainy. Flavor is a blend of light hops, dry, grainy, honey/floral. Mouthfeel is dry, parched, watery and CO2 is moderate to low. Overall, for what it is (a 3.2 abw brew) it has a good balance of pleasant flavors. It has some quirks but can be forgiven because this beer can satisfy and be drunk in mass quantities with minimal inebriation. Good Call for craft beer neophytes.

A - low head, very clear colored like watered down apple juice, but extremely strong lacing for this style I would say this is a good example of what the beer should look like. Carbonation was low, perhaps to be expected in a draught beer.

S - Malty, weak, some linseed, but not much hop.

T - Sour, a bit yeasty, with a hop bite. It's pretty rough around the edges. Some acidity. Has an initial pilz taste but the aftertaste is most definitely not a pilz hop. The flavor is a bit caustic.

M- slick like an oil spill. Some caustic burn.

D - Barely acceptable. Better than a cheap pilz but still nothing I'd ever reach for twice. I didn't feel a need to finish this beer.

I had this on tap at the brewpub.

Clear light gold in the glass with minimal head.

They say it is a light pale ale, but it reminds me more of a lager. Not bad at all, but not exceptional either. (This isn't my favorite style though so my bias may be speaking here.)

Good balance and an easy drinking session beer for friends who don't like lots of hops.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear straw color. The white head leaves a nice lacing on the pint glass. Has a grainy, yeasty smell. Light bodied with a lively mouthfeel. Taste is of sweet malt grains, very refreshing. Finishes with a nice grainy tasting burp.

A lightly flavored brew as you'd expect from a blond, but for $1.75 a pint I'd drink this all day long vs. the mega-brew offerings.
