It pours a straw yellow color with a white foamy head that fades. The smell is of malts but not very much of an aroma. The taste is very plain, you taste malts with a hint of hops at the end. Overall an ok drink but not one that can stand out.

Had it on tap at a French Quarter oyster house. Like most places here, it I served in a plastic cup. Anyway, looked like a decent blonde with a nice bready, somewhat sweet taste. It went well with charbroiled oysters so I was happy!

Pours cloudy gold. White, medium, foamy head stays shortly.

Smells malti, citrusy and bready.

Taste bready malt, lightly sweet, fading to a light bitter Citrus. finish is lingering light bitter citrus. Light body and fizzy medium carbonation.

On tap in some dive blues bar in New Orleans

White foam quickly settles to a layer of foam

Clear Honey amber liquid

Not much on the aroma

Get more malts than the hops

Good cold refreshment on a hot humid night

Nice beer
