Poured on tap in downtown Minneapolis

The beer pours fine, though somewhat disappointingly clear. But a very nice head, with a pleasing nearly-wit color.

The aroma is rather subdued, but solid and balanced, with malt sweetness and adjunct grain aromas, balanced with a touch of hops.

The taste is not spectacular, but again, is very solid and yeoman-like. Nothing daring or unique, but a solid straightforward mix of subdued malty sweetness (caramel, perhaps?) with a strong deposit of wheaty goodness and some nice hop character at the end to provide a crisp finish.

The mouthfeel is the best aspect of this beer. Very light and crisp.

Overall a solid, albeit safe and unremarkable offering.

Pours a clear gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, hint of wheat, hint of yeast, and slight citrus hops. Fits the style of an American Blonde Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, hint of wheat, hint of adjunct, hint of yeast, and slight citrus hops. Overall, weak appearance, lacking in depth, adjunct ins't pleasant, and sharp feel.

I poured this from a bottle into a clear teardrop glass. I grabbed it in a hurry thinking, I have to go to the bathroom real bad but don't want to walk out of here without beer. I'm happy I grabbed it! It pours a nice hazy golden with a one-finger white head. It has a real nice body to it for a blonde beer. I was hoping it wasn't going to be a Hamm's or Miller bunny piss beer. I'd buy it again!
