Pale straw in color and cloudy. Not much head to speak of. A beer brewed for the "lite" crowd, light malt aroma/flavor, and lightly hopped (both in aroma and flavor). This beer finished on the dry and bitter side. A beer you could put a lot of away on a hot day.

This is a basic, well-done, conservative, consistently high-quality APA from the city's best brewpub. It's not a world-shaker, it's not something you'd drive from across the country to sample. It's not meant to be...BRBP has other beers for that.

This is a fine beer, that's good every time I have it. It's also a great beer for people that aren't into craft brews. If you take a macro-drinker to dinner at the BRBP, suggest this to them for a starter. No, it's nothing to write home about, but it is a solid, tasty brew.

Very nice PA! It had a very light and clear color to it, not even straw colored, which I thought was interesting. Good scent, nice and clean, with just a little bitterness. Very refreshing taste, not too bitter, a nice mix of malt and hops. Goes down very smoothly and is easy to drink.

From a sampler: This beer is a clear gold color with a thin white head. Very little lacing. The aroma is Lager-ish. Light-bodied and mildy hoppy throughout, but not much else going on flavor-wise other than hints of malt here and there. The finish is kind of docile as well. I understand why the name, as this is an unexciting but drinkable beer.
