Draught @ So.Portland Pub: This one pours a clear, darker golden color. There was a small off-white head that left some lacing. It has a lighter nose. Some malts, grassy hops. There is a bit more of a body than was expected. Malts, no real sweetness or bitterness, touch earthy, faint fruits. Not too bad.

Into a pint glass:

A: very light yellow colored body with no lacing, and no rings. No carbonation is seen rising. An ever so small white head less than a film dissipated within seconds.

S: some light malts with just a bit of graininess to it.

T: some of the grains come back with the malts, mainly balanced, but nothing spectacular. A bit grassy and herbal.

M: light, sessionable, with no carbonation felt in my mouth. It had a balanced clean dry finish to it.

O: not a bad beer, though it was nothing spectacular it does the trick on a warm day. I would have this again, most likely grillin'.

Tap at the brew pub in Northborough, MA.

Very light fizzy head, crystal clear amber blond color.

Nose has very light malts, light fruit, light sweet almost syrup addition, hint of grainy malts.

Taste is light but nice, light sweeter malts, bit grainy and toasty, bit earthy malt and toasty straw, light fruit and sweetness, grassy noble like hops, gets more bitter, a bitter icky flavor on the finish like herbal back of the tongue grassy almost vegetative, but also a drier finish.

Mouth is lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall not as bad as I was expecting but not great, nose is light, taste starts nice but a bad finish. Drinkable though.

Poured on tap from the pub in Topsham ME to the rim.

Since they pour so much in their pints, there is virtually no head to describe. The body is very clean with some very good bubble carbonation from the bottom, and a nice dark gold with minimal lacing.

Bouquet on this is a good solid big bread chew mix of white like bread and yeast.

Upon taste there is a good decent somewhat biscuit chewyness but a very bad finish of alcohol and chemicals. No hop tasting bitters either and good body with some faint fruit thus making for average drinkability.

The beer pours a pale gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a dry, pale malt scent along with a slight fruitiness and bitter aroma. The taste is average. It has a weak, pale malt flavor with low hops and a bone dry finish. There is a little fruitiness present, but nothing too pronounced. The mouthfeel is average as well. It is a low bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is your typical blonde ale. It could use a bit more malt character. The taste is definitely lacking.
