3.95/5  rDev +2.1%

Tasted on-tap 06/04/07 at the Lucky Labrador Bewpub in Portland, OR.

Clear straw color with a decent white head and decent lace. A nice grainy and light hop aroma and flavor with no hint of adjuncts. A very nicely balanced beer. Light bodied and easy drinking.

A solid Blonde/Golden Ale for a brewpub...

Appearance – This one came out of the tap a very light yellow in color with a smallish head.

Smell – This had a full-on grain aroma with a delicate hop balance.

Taste – The grain here is pleasant and sharp. This Golden Ale is not as wimpy as it looks.

Mouthfeel – This light-bodied ale is clean and crisp on the palate. It has some light carbonation and is somewhat refreshing.

Drinkability – This is one of the better Blonde Ales that I’ve had. There’s nothing fancy here but nothing offensive, either.

Found this organic brew at the Laurelhurst Theater in Portland. The brwer's website claims 4.5% abv. It has a decent sized fluffy head which leaves little in the way of lacing and a very pale straw colour.

The smell was somewhere between rhubarb and dough, but nearer to the former than the latter. It has a very pleasant bitterness (good hops) and a slight metallic flavour, but there is very little malt influence. This is lighter than many ales with the golden tag which I have sampled.

Carbonation is good, but the finish is rather dry.
