Singles cooler at Kesslers in Aberdeen, SD.

Appearance (3.5) : Pours a 2 finger head that quickly recedes to about 1/4". Slightly hazy golden straw color. Mostly transparent.

Aroma (4.25) : Nutty. A bit woody - with some evergreen. Heavily decadent and syrupy roasted malt. Sap. It's got a fabulous aroma to it, I'm not gonna lie. One of the better beers I've smelled. Bouquet is medium to strong.

Taste (3.5) : Traditional yeasty blonde flavor at the beginning, then some sour malts rush in followed by a generous hop profile. The hop and malt yin-yang and arm-wrestle each other. By the end, the hop wins out with a woody, bitter finish. Character is there, but it may be a bit strong for my preference in a blonde ale.

Mouthfeel (3.25) : Stinging carbonation with a slightly creamy body. Ends crisp and nippy.

Overall (3.52) : Aroma is the strong suit here. Downright impressive. The taste leaves a little to be desired for me personally, but I could see someone being absolutely crazy about this beer. It has a great profile and is pretty complex. I like how the malt and hop wrestle each other for dominance. As stated, the hop actually wins the battle by the end of the taste. It is a good beer and I'm sure it's great on tap. Give it a whirl.

American Blond Ale? Who added this beer? This one is obviously an English Ale, quite sweet & malty, and only slightly bitter. Not exactly a hop-head's favorite style, but a reasonable approximation of the style. Not great, but not bad.
