Shudder...wretch, hold nose, chug.
Well this started off good. The beer was looking fine a nice golden ale with a fluffy dense head that dropped back and even left some lacing. Then I smelled it and everything came to an end. I almost poured it out right there, but I thought well if I can eat stinking bishop cheese I can try some of this beer. Well to give you an idea it smelled of cheap macro swill and had some corny DMS thing mixed with a lemon citrus and covering the glass to really get a good smell almost made me pass out. Well the smell carried over into the taste but thankfully it was cold enough to muted the wost of it. Suprisingly I was able to finish the whole bottle despite the smell and I opened a second one to make sure I didn't get a bad bottle, that one mostly fed the drain. Best part was the nice balanced carbonation and decent body.

App: true gold with a small head.
Smell: Sweet fruit like blueberries. A light wheat scent. Hints of alcohol hide underneath.
taste: Sweet caramel apple taste that concentrates itself on the tongue. Maybe a hint of honey. Tastes very much like a honey wheat sans wheat. Hardly any hops. I'm not a hop head but I want more in this beer.
Slight bit of body from the wheat. But the bad taste seems to dominate any positive mouthfeel.

12 ounce bottle, shaker pint glass.
A - Basically a clear yellow with a very small white head.
S - Not much going on here.
T - Taste here is a bit bland with some corn flakes flavor.
M - Watery and thin.
D - This one's just not working. Needs some carbonation or a pop of flavor to be a refreshing summer brew.

Pours yellow with a white head that thins and stays. A bit of lacing sticks.
The smell is of cereal, some grain, some husk.
The taste is of cereal, some husk, a bit of wet cardboard. I'm thinking that they had the macro-lager drinkers in mind, because there's enough similarities to make me think of it.
Somewhat drinkable, as there is a crispness. But, it also has a watery thinness. Overall, it's too shallow. Not a fan of what's going on here. Better summer thirst-quenchers out there, IMO.

My first sip of this beer was too reminiscent of mass produced American beers. I felt that though this is a blonde ale it should have been a bit more substantial. The flavor notes of hops was apparent but not as strong as I would like. Maybe this isn't the style for me, but overall I did not believe it was very good.

Serving type: On-Tap (Claret Wine Bar)
A: Pours a yellow orange with a small amount of head that quickly disappeared.
S: A hint of lemon and some fruity tones.
T: Despite the smell no fruity flavor or Lemon zest. It's mainly watery rye with some hops.
M: Decent amount of carbonation. Not so much that you couldn't "chug" the entire pint if you wanted. Smooth on your palate.
D: Definitely a beer for someone who just want's to keep on drinking. I found it bland with no taste that made you want to come back for more. I would steer clear from it.

[Suggested glassware: Shaker Glass]
The pour was a clear light yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white foamy head that diminished quickly, down to a thin puddled film and had fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was very mild with a light bread malt, light grassy hops and a sweaty yeast with a mild adjunct (corn) odor and just a hint of citrus (lemon).
The taste was very lightly sweet and just a tad malty, which pretty much was the case throughout, with the finish having a mild citrus presence and a adjunct taste towards the end. The flavor was average in duration, with a lightly tart citrusy adjunct taste left behind on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body and mildly dry in texture with a soft carbonation.
Overall this was a pretty basic light American Blonde Ale with a slight citrus tartness at the end...
