I used to love this beer. However as it has showed up in most tap rooms i think it has gone down hill. I blame this on pour. It seems a delicate beer that if poured sloppily the taste profile is off. Bottle not as good as great pour, just getting hard to get a solid pour anymore

Much better than I thought it was going to be very crisp full bodied lager with minimal hop and skunk presence with an almost sugary malt character even though the finish is kind of a dirty hop taste. Not sure if I would get it again but it was good to try at 3 bucks for a big bottle.

Classic, refreshing, simple brew recipe

Not much complexity to the taste, very straight forward wheat,sweet barley, simple hop and hop extract flavor

Beer is not very acidic, which brings these flavors out on the palate for a not overwhelming full flavor, with great mouth feel. Pairs well with aqua panna or deer park water
Finish you get a big taste of hop extract, not especially pleasant my only criticism of this beer.

Feel is great, on bottle or especially on tap, one of my favorite beers to have several of, a very quality alcohol experience, quite bargain

What I love about this beer is that it tastes like I always thought beer should taste. The look, smell, and taste all match what I thought beer should be growing up. Overall I would highly recommend this beer.

Pours a clarion golden color. There are definitely more hip notes on draft, but from a can the malt predominates in the nose. The taste follows the smell with golden malt notes predominating. Not much hop bitterness as is more prevalent in the draft version. Lovely bright carbonation with a light mouth feel. Overall a solid go to, especially when it is hot and you just want a "beer." Not fancy but ordinarily good nonetheless.

Light pale golden color; about one finger of light foamy head; mild pleasant aroma; mild light taste.
I have relatoins for whom this is a fine beer, a favorite. For me, it's a pleasant beer I get when I have guests who like light beer, but I can't bring myself to serve a beer that has light in its name.

Light and refreshing in a way few beers are. Feels clean and crisp in the way drinking liquid silver would. Not much of a looker. While it's not much special out of a bottle, on tap it's a completely different animal. A great go to.
