3.33/5 rDev +0.9%
on tap poured into a pub glass at the brewpub in Flossmoor. pours a light straw/golden color with a half finger of white head that leaves light lacings and has weak retention.
aroma is lightly grainy, with a subtle citrusy hop note and a touch of yeasty biscuit in the base. nicely proportioned and concentrated for a blonde ale.
taste is more of the same with a grainy presence and a mildly hoppy finish very fresh and nicely composed on the palate.
mouthfeel is light bodied with a semi dry texture and finish, with a lightly tart character overall and a lightly bitter finish.
drinkability is good. a mild and dry blonde ale, with a rather hoppy character when compared to the style overall, but still tolerable.

Pours gold with a light head that is almost nonexistant. Smell is faint, light malt and not much else. Taste is light and sweet malt with faint hops coming through to balance. Still pretty thin and bubbly, and reminiscent of a light beer. Drinkable, but not especially noteworthy, especially with so many other great beers at Flossmoor.

I was not overly impressed with this beer. I had this on-tap at Flossmoor Station the night before DLD '08. I felt this had more of a macro-brew smell and taste to it. It's hailed as the lightest and most popular at the brewpub and I can certainly see why - even people who drink Miller can appreciate it. I would probably try this one again just to make sure, but was dissatisfied. Right now, I probably wouldn't recommend it.

(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer has a light golden yellow crystal clear body with a creamy white head that fades after a bit. There is a nice good carbonation of tiny bubbles.
S- There is a nice smell of slightly sweet pale malt but it is still pretty neutral and a faint dry corn note in the background.
T- The slight sweet pale malt is balances very nicely by a crisp bittern noble hops at the finish. Not much depth but very fresh crisp flavors.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a soft fizz in the finish texture.
D- I usually don't like this style but they really do a nice job of keeping the beer light while giving good malt and hop flavors. They don't shy away from taste but a BMC drink could easy down a few of these and not be offended. I wished they served this at one of the ballparks.

The brewer, Matt Van Wyk, has achieved an excellent product and I would return to Flossmoor Station in the future!

Sampled at the pub. This is their "base beer," the one they have to have on tap for the neophytes and ladies. Very light in color and taste. Almost like a pilsener, believe it or not, but redeemed by a good spicy hop taste as the glass warms up.

This brew pours a large white colored head of large mostly lasting bubbles and a transparent yellow colored body. It has a hoppy aroma and a mild hop flavor. I did not get anything else from the beer but hops. Flossmoor Station is a wonderful place to go and sample many fine beers near Chicago.
