Slightly hazy pale straw yellow, huge thick head of fine bubbles. The brew's aroma is an appealing apple crispness, tart and slightly grainy. Taste is dominated by the pale malt with just a touch of faint grassy hops in the finish. A bit sweet, but not cloying. The overall feel is very nice, with an appealing subdued liveliness, not too carbonated.

Pretty good blonde here. Pretty, pretty, pretty good.

Just tried this beer while vacationing in Aspen, CO. It has a very clear orange color and carbonation is light not a big head. You get the taste of honey and slight orange aroma. Taste is very crisp and light. The brewery was just down the street in Aspen but I didn't get a chance to visit. Defintely worth trying of you are a fan of blonde ale.

Attractive dark amber, honey blonde, giving a decent head in the round wine glass. Pleasantly spritzy with a lingering bubbly carbonation that is not too sharp.

Warm and rounded with a pleasing malt sweetness. Shapely body with some fair toasted malt. Leaves you with a good feeling and a bitter edge. Malty but lightened with a lemony note. Really quite tasty.

Zingy and interesting for a quaff. A much more robust Blonde Ale than typical. From the 12 oz can purchased at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.

Pours a nice pale, straw-yellow body with a fluffy, sticky, white head; lots of clinging lace and foam. Light grain aroma; a bit of dry grass; a touch of fruitiness. Warm biscuit and mild cereal flavors; crisp sweetness; gentle hop bitterness towards the finish. Medium bodied; crisp and dry.

A very delicious blonde ale that easily reminds you of a good German kölsch. There are many similarities: gentle malt backbone; soft and smooth on the palate; well-balanced yet unobtrusive hop, easy going hop bitterness. My only issue was the aroma was very subdued and hard to pick up on, but every other aspect shines, especially the flavor. Nicely done, easy drinking and definitely worth a return visit.
