Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Pours a cloudy translucent golden yellow with disappearing white foam. Light mild smell which is almsot nonexistent - nothing too distinguishing in the nose. Mild taste, light, watery malt, subtle fruitiness. Chalky. Easy drinker, good taste but hardly memorable.

Easy summer drinker, nothing more.

I had this brew at The Sunset Bar in Allston, MA, on the recommendation of a friend.

Bright straw yellow in color. Smelled of fruit and some light hops.

Honestly, when I drank it, I picked up on a banana taste. Not overwhelming, but it was present. Some hops and wheat in the back.

This would be a quality brew to enjoy in the spring and summer. Not sure why I tasted banana; I'll try this again and right another review in the future.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a very plae golden straw with a bright white 2 finger head. Numerous constant streams of carbonation rose from the bottom, but failed to keep the head from diminishing. Aroma smelled slightly hoppy, slighty green olive sour. Taste was slightly fruity sweet, with faint traces of bitterness. Almost reminded me of a slighty sweet very watered down lemon flavor. Flavor itself wasn't watered down however. Felt great in the mouth. Coated just enough for something of this style, with a hint of carbonation. Not watery, but also not chewy other. Would make for a great summer time beer. Price was pretty reasonable as well.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a bright yellow color with a large white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin and spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains light caramelized malts, citrus and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of grain and thin malt character. Then some mildly sweet flavors of citrus and caramel come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, solid representation of style, although there are better beers in the style, this is still a decent beer to pound down for a long time.

22oz bottle purchased as a single at Yankee Spirits, Sturbridge, MA.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" bright white head over the slightly cloudy lemon-hued brew. Head fizzles away, with average lacing. Aroma is lemony tart, with grassy hops character.

Taste begins sweet, strong citrus in the middle, and prickly hops to the close. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is easy. A good light beer option.

Pours a cloudy, straw color. Modest head, but it sticks around and leaves a decent amount of ring/spotty lace.

Very light malt with a mild sourness to the nose. Hops? Super mild if they're there.

Not as crisp as I expected it to be, but that matches the ale profile. A pleasant mixture of raw and malted grains. The sourness is more subdued on the palate. Better hop in the swallow than the smell would indicate, but it's still an afterthought. Above average body for the style. High level of carbonation as well.

Blondes are tough beers to make flavorful--this one is one of the better ones I've tried.
