Similar in design to Main Street's Demented Duck Amber but with a deliberate withholding of body and pizzazz. The aroma is of moist pizza dough and golden malted grains. Color is vivid gold with refined clarity - more of a thin ESB color than a strawbale blonde. Casual sweetness and wooden nuttiness intertwine artfully with spiked bittering accents but no appreciable hop presence. And not a mote of head or lace.

Assertive flavors in relaxed measure make this a good choice for your friends in need of a crossover beer.

Rather light pee-yellow color... bubbly, clear..

Smell is a very mild.. some citrus hop.. but not much. Little barley and/or malt..

Taste is about the same... watery.. cream malt and weak hop.

Like drinking gatorade... would be a nice growler or two while fishing. Would certainly drink this over some nasty Corona for sure. I only got this because my girlfriend wanted me to get it for her since all she can really drink is this and Widmer's Hefe.
