I had this beer on tap at Tornado Steakhouse in Madison, Wisconsin. In my opinion this beer tastes like what you would get if you tried to make Bud light with all very high quality ingredients. It was good, but very bland. There isn't anything you can complain about in it. It's even very drinkable, and I could probably drink this all night if it was available. But I really like a bit more flavor in my beer.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a standard pint glass.

A: A nice golden/yellow pour. A decent head, nothing special. Carbonation looks good. The head sticks around for awhile, and leaves a nice lace on the glass (once again, nothing special).

S: You can definitely pick up the citrus. Hints of the malt/corn. There isn't a huge aroma, but what you get definitely makes you want to take a sip.

T: Here's where we get to the downside of the beer. The taste in your mouth is quality. The citrus and malt make their way through, and the slight hops is a good balance. The aftertaste? Well, lets just say it makes you want to take another drink.

MF: Left a bit to be desired. The carbonation that I saw after pouring was absent after the first couple of sips. Thicker than I would expect by the pour, but still extremely light overall.

O: Split it down the middle. 3.5/5.
