I picked this up in the crate of ales mixed case, enjoyed chilled in a willybecker from the 12oz bottle.

The color is light golden with mild hazed look with thick white head with fine bead and swirls of lace that stick...retention is very good. The smell is nice with a slight pine hop and fruity yeast ester with light sweet malt smell. The feel is decent with good carbonation level and moderately sweet with light bitterness and slight creamy yeast texture finish is semi-dry with medium body and low alcohol influence.

The taste is better than average with some gentle malt providing a backdrop to the mild hop flavor which adds dimension to the slight fruitiness of the yeast which is more stone fruit with light tang of citrus flavor which is almost orange-like in the hop taste. Overall I like this it is not dull and is drinkable which is more than you can say about most blonde ales. I think the flavor is very good for the style and I would drink this again considering it exceeded my expectations

A small white head settles into a thin lacing above a clear straw golden colored beer.

Sour grains with some light hops blended with it aroma.

Sour to almost a slight bitter grain malt taste that seems to have a little hops bite as well.

Dry with some bittering in the aftertaste of this light bodied beer.

An alright tasting blonde, nothing fancy but it does carry with it some taste.

i liked this beer a lot. a brew on the lighter side in terms of body, but with a whole lot of flavor packed in for a blonde ale. it pours a clear straw color with a frothy white head. the nose is pale malts and a touch fresh citrus, maybe lemon. its got a very crisp finish to it, which is much appreciated in these last few hot days of the season here. theres a nice bready malt profile, dry and clean, and the citrus is just subtle. the mouthfeel made it for me though. it has a light body but very robust carbonation which makes it a great refesher and an easy session beer. one of my favorites from the variety pack actually. did a nice job keeping the red rocks dust from drying me out too bad.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing.

S: Aroma or grain, bit of malt sweetness and trace of citrus.

T: Flavor follows the aroma with grain and mild malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Seems a bit bland.

F: Light body, with just a bit of crispness.

O: Decent drinker, that goes down quite easy. Sort of a middle of the road for the style.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a conical Guinness pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average (~C+) given the brewery, which sometimes offers better than average beers but usually hovers around a C for me. No ABV on bottle. No best before or bottling date either. My second beer of the night.

Acquired as part of a variety box at Tipsy's Liquor World in Littleton, Colorado.

Served straight from the refrigerator and not allowed to warm much; I like my blondes cold. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

Not paired with food. Consumed on a full stomach.

A: Pours a half finger beige colour head - quite thin, without much cream at all, and of bad retention (<30 seconds). Colour is a light copper-yellow. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Unappealing. Resembles a macroshite lager.

Sm: Barley, lemongrass, clean full malts, butterscotch (diacetyl?), and unobtrusive background hops (indistinct). A mild strength aroma. No yeast or alcohol is detectable.

T: Lemongrass, full barley, clean indistinct malts (save for crystal, which is a bit overdone in the grain bill methinks), straw, and lemon peel. Diacetyl. None of the lemon is fresh or particularly genuine. More a stale artificial sort of feel. Decently balanced, but built in a troublesome manner - nothing is particularly refreshing or pleasant about it. A simple by-the-numbers run of the mill blonde. Why brew this? No yeast or alcohol come through.

Mf: Smooth and wet - bordering on watery. Too thin. Carbonation is off, but I can't quite tell in which direction. Doesn't really suit the flavour.

Dr: A drinkable but mediocre blonde. Don't get this. I wouldn't recommend it to friends. Very forgettable. Very boring and bland. Meh.

Pours a clear, gold/straw color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of pale malt, grain, slight sweet malt, hint of hop, and slight wheat. Fits the style of an American Blonde Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, slight hop, and slight wheat. Overall, good aroma and blend, but lacking in appearance and body.

It has golden body that is a bit hazy. The head and lace are both and are both white and they are both great. The aroma is mainly sweet and malty with some hay like tones. It taste a little bit sweet then mildly bitters out to a grassy taste but something is not quite right. It has a thin body with plenty of carbonation.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Straw color. Thorough carbonation. Tiny bubbles rise throughout the brew. Pours a giant, frothy, white head. Settles slowly leaving plenty of sticky residue on the sides of the glass as it does. Never fully deteriorates. Looks kind of like a root beer float. Very substantial beer ring, spider web, the full monty of lacing remains.

S: Hay and grass and a very light baked bread. Just a touch of clove and lemon citrus.

T: Tastes like it smells. Light grainy flavor with just a touch of clove or oregano, a bit of citrus, and a subtle piny hop. A nice little pungency to balance it out.

M: Light bodied and refreshing. A little pungent to start, and just a little piny to finish. A bit of a metallic aftertaste lingers.

D: Really drinks easy, although the aftertaste is a touch harsh.

Atmosphere is pretty solid here. Really great appearance. Nice bright hue, tiny bubbles of effervescence, a giant frothy head, and plenty of lacing. Nose is pronounced. Nothing overwhelming or exciting, but not washed-out subdued, or just dead. Light body, but full flavor. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
