I have this old theory about taste characteristics imparted by the water used. Nowhere is this element as noticeable than in the weak American an styles.

This offering comes out of the can with a very wreak head that further dissipates and a nice clean yellow color. The aroma isn't as appealing as it could be.

The taste is fresh and crisp. It is a very refreshing light drink. The aftertaste is a little dirtier. Somewhere along the line a dirty water taste gets in three, but it isn't bad and doesn't run it.

Overall, this is not the be all to end all, but a reasonable example of the style.

A miller lite drinker could easily give this craft intro beer a shot and never go back!

You can drink this all night with no problem. Very easy to drink and a great tasting smooth blonde ale from Rivertowne Brewing in Pittsburgh

I had this at the Pens game in a can and I get it every game I goto now!

I am sure that I have tried this in the past. But I guess I haven’t made a review of it.
A pretty easy drinking blonde that isn’t thin on character. Almost seems to be a honey tone to things. A bit of a grain thing going on as well. Pretty easy to drink. Smooth overall, though not thin and hearty enough. A nice drinker. I can dig it.
