3.43/5 rDev +0.3%
Appearance has a light gold yellow color supporting a fair head leaving nill lace. Smell is grainy, malty and hop. Taste of the grain, lightly sweet in the malt and mild hop flavor. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Overall a nice easy drinking session ale.

Darkly translucent golden ale with copper undertones. Solid two-finger white head, with good retention and nice layered lacing.
Soft aroma, hints of some bright but not strong hops, and some biscuit and bread malts. Very light. Smells kind of like a Belgian IPA.
Slight undefined hops; dry, rye malt; slight banana and lemony sweetness; very light, mouth-forward grains. Straw, wheat, and a light sweetness reminiscent of Belgian yeasts; I don't know if they actually used Belgian yeast (only classified as an American Blonde Ale, with no bottle description).
Light mouthfeel with a cloying stickiness. No sting, slight foaming, no aftertaste, and a good balance among the earthy malts.
This is a surprisingly tasty beer from a brewery of which I have never heard. It's extremely drinkable, and at 4.6%, extremely sessionable. I feel like it's just on the verge of something even better, but not quite there yet.
No bottle date.

A pretty straight forward blonde ale, but delicious and refreshing nonetheless. Glowed a deep gold after pouring into a pint glass, with a lasting head leaving a moderate amount of lacing. Smell is very fresh. . . "spring-like," appropriate for this May day. Taste is tangy and malty, well balanced with a crisp hop presence. The carbonation pairs well with the fresh demeanor this beer has. Enjoyed it.

I poured this average beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a nice normal beer color and poured a nice big head. The beer had a slightly hoppy smell. The beer was a little cloudy and don't know why. At first I thought I was going to like the beer. In fact i wrote "yes" on my notes which means I would buy it again. But by the time I finished the beer I changed it and wrote NO. It just started tasting bad. i will not buy again.

This looks a little darker than the average American blonde. Not that much of a head topping the clear, light copper liquid. Smells hoppy and citric with crisp pale malts. The taste is of lemon and herbal hops. Some ripe cherry and green tea are present as well. It took me to the bottom of the glass to identify it, but the prevailing flavor in this one is raw wildflower honey. It does not add too much sweetness but the honey notes play very well with the fruitiness. Mouthfeel is thin, which is expected in a 4.6% ABV blonde ale. There's some carbonation but not as much as other light beers.
This is surprisingly flavorful and entirely sessionable. This is tastier than most ales of this alcohol content that I have tried before. Great for a porch sit. I'm sure a well-paced day of drinking this beer could be accomplished without complete inebriation.
