Solid mass market offering. A old-school grand-daddy of California craft beer.

Decent fading head and bright amber color. I agree with the reviews that this is a very subtle brew, unlike most craft offerings today. However, I find its reserved character refreshing. There is a light carbination that dances across the tongue. Hop bitterness is similar to a pilsner, but is more than balanced by the creamy, nutty malt. Excellent light bodied brew.

Had an awesome tall boy can while on vacation in New Mexico, Simple in style and character. I thought the nose was a bit corny but the flavor is crisp and very solid . Not a great beer for Firestone Walker, but fine for what it was.

Poured into a tall Peroni glass. Head and carbonation vanish quickly. Smells of honey. Tastes of a mixture of wheat and citrus. Noticeable alcohol taste. I'm a huge fan of Firestone's Nitro Merlin, but not this one.

From a 12oz can brewed 5/18/18. Pale orange color with a half finger of head. Smells like a lager: faint straw smell. Light feel, decent carbonation. Tastes of grain, some honey sweetness, and finishes dry with a touch of bitterness. Mediocre. Not worth a craft beer price.

Pushed by Binny's as the 'most popular beer in So. Calif.

Decent summer beer to enjoy after cutting the grass. Not better than lesser priced non craft blondes.
