Bright golden color with a bit of haziness from some light sediment. A quarter inch head of off white foam is on top,but quickly fades. Brussels lacing. Aroma is of light malt,rice, and perhaps some faint bittering hops. Flavor is light malt,rice, and some faint Saaz hops. This beer is daily light in body and fairly crisp.

Not as horrible as the label looks or the beer sounds. Pours a clear brilliant golden color with a bright white head, forms thin speckled lacing as it dwindles. Aroma has light biscuit malts with a light herbal hop in the back end, nothing overtly sweet or offensive here. Flavor has a creamy malts sweetness, with massive cereal notes and a bit of cooked veggie. Light herbal hops in the back end with some dry yeast cake chalkiness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with ample carbonation, a bit fizzy and a bit yellow nothing markedly better than anything mainstream or worse than anything out there that is super craft. Overall, it was bearable but nothing really exciting or well executed as a honey blonde lager.

Got this at the Party Mart just down the road from my house in Lake Mills, WI.

Pours a pale yellow color, quite a bit of foamy white head. Smells lemony sweet. Nice light bodied beer with a good clean taste. I enjoyed this beer. Very drinkable, I'll buy this beer again if I see it.

Date: August 9, 2015... Glassware: Cleveland Browns pilsner... Occasion: post geocaching relaxation after my birthday... Appearance: pale, tawny body with large bubbles throughout; white, spongy head that has solid retention and maintains a cloudlike ring--surprisingly alluring ...Aroma: nice wheaty esters hover over some pale hops and lager malts--tough to actually hone in on a predominant scent; some oddball spiciness--not clove or corn, but off-kilter... Palate: oily, thick and coating despite its purported blondness... medium-bodied, somewhat refreshing and somewhat substantial... Taste: slight bitterness, with some sweetness as well; honey and bready malts are the distinguishing features; overall, a nondescript lager with little to suggest its blond aspects... Overall: not much difference between the Horny Goats I have had...maybe the others in the summer can mix pack can separate from the others; does it at least refresh on a nice summer afternoon? perhaps, but I would not seek this out again...

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear bright gold color with a small white head. The aroma is malt with some hops in the background. the taste is malt and grain. Overall, a good beer.

Pours a clear gold color with a medium white head.

Nose is an assertive banana/peach/yeast. Smells more like a Belgian ale than a blonde lager.

Medium bodied with a mouthfeel that is clean, fresh, crisp and with a citrus character.

Flavors are medium to big yeasty white bread with bitter grapefruit flavors and undertones.

Finish is a pleasant grapefruit-pine.

This is a very simple but well made beer and is extremely drinkable and would likely be pleasant for most. I'm a fan of much bigger beers and of extreme beers. Yet, this one, as simple as it is, was quite pleasant and appealing.

A: Brilliant clarity of blonde-gold coloring shows a moderately paced and spaced array of effervesce. The head is a thin frothy covering that needs help in retention with a minimal show of lace. I generally like my blondes dirty (hazy with protien).

S: Soft fresh hopping, fresh greenery and pilsner grains. Soft muskiness of oranges and lemons lies beneath.

T: Honey malt with a light zing of lemon and fresh greenery for hops. As with the nose ever so slight muskiness is observed, some graininess leaving the tongue with a touch of herbal and semi-dry lemon peel. Decent show of hoppiness by style regards.

M: Light mouthful, slippery buttery texture and feel. Carbonation is a bit quiet, would of benefited with a bit more crispness but seems to fair well with a lazy, laid back attitude perfect for sippin on the cot.

O: Overall not a bad tasting beer, certainly not a Belgian style or yeasty, but as a stand alone entry level light sippin tweener will suffice for one or two. Bought as a part of a sampler pack. average all around.
