Clear and bright bubbly sunshine and hay color. Good head, foam, and lacing after each sip.

Dry, lightly toasted pilsner style malts with grassy, earthy hops, and the ale yeast add some fruity Summer aromas as well.

Fruity yeast adds another level to this crisp, toasty, milled grain, and earthy hopped blonde ale. I like this Blonde. I could drink it every season, Especially Summer, and all day.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a clear golden yellow body with a thick head that mushrooms above the glass and last. There is a sea of microbubbles.

S- The slightly musty pale malt and lightly toasted malt have a cream note to them with some Noble hop notes in the finish.

T- The dry fresh malt has a honey and cracker malt flavor to it with a dry crisp snap of Noble hops in the finish. There is a mellow herbal bitterness that lingers after each sip.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a tight little fizz that cleans the finish and no alcohol heat noticed.

O- Nice fresh malt and hops flavors with the hops being just a bit stronger but very easy to drink with lot of nice straight forward flavors with some depth of flavor tucked in for interest.

Received as an extra.

Poured into a pint glass, the body is a clear golden color with crystal clarity. The head is off-white, peachy colored, and clings to the sides of the glass leaving a consistent lacing pattern. The soapy subs die in a slow fashion and hang around for most of the pint. Decent amount of carbonation present.

The aroma is immediately reminiscent of German/Czech lagers to me. The Saaz hops are the most prominent and up front. Then as the beer warms slightly, the fruitiness of the malts shine through very easily. There is a sweetness to the aroma, mostly from this honeyish malty scent, but also there might be some trace diacetyl, which isn't totally uncalled for in this style. Pleasant, but nothing special.

Very flavorful! Rich, honey malts take over from here. There is a respectable hop bite up front, and maybe a slight lingering bitterness in the finish, but it really does just act in a balancing role. Those sweet malts take center stage and carry with them hints of yellow apples, golden raisins, and honey. Grassy hops linger...

Excellent texture on the beer, with a good amount of carbonation that is neither too effervescent nor is it too creamy. It has a softer texture though, and the body is very full for the style.

This is a great, standout example of a Blonde Ale. Very enjoyable, full of character, and stands head and shoulders above some other weak examples out there. Really liked this. It could use more hops in my opinion, but then again, why mess with a good thing?

Served in a 5 Rabbit pint glass at Fountainhead 8/29/11. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

A: Served a pale golden color with a sticky 1 1/2 fingers of bright white foam on top. Retention was excellent with loads of foam clinging to the glass. Carbonation was relativly active.

S: Pretty grassy. Actually, we were suprised by how grassy and spicy it smelled. Hints of toasty grain and caramel but this was dominated by green grassy hops. Not IPA styled hoppiness, but impressive considering the style.

T: See above. Very nice.

M: Smooth and relatively thin. A great summer session ale that didn't step all over the inside of our mouths.

O: Impressive. We weren't expecting much but got a nice surprise. Clean and hoppy...perfect for summer.

Hey, I like blondes, but the beers, not as much. Yet this blonde has a bit more character - it's not as dumb. She has a darkness underneath (roots showing).

It's golden and clear with little head. The aroma is faint but nice. The taste is right about where it should be. Overall, a well made brew. A little pricey for the style, but I would buy it again.

Appearance: Golden with decent lacing. No foam.

Smell: Cinnamon, raisins, and tons of sweet caramel. Delicious.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Lots of honey and some pine. Rather fruity in the background. Raspberries? Mouthfeel starts thin but builds body as it warms.

Overall: One of the better light ales I've had recently.

A - Pours golden with a slight foam head. Settles quickly, minimal to no lacing on the glass.

S - Scents of honey, cinnamon, and german noble hops are noted.

T - Has almost a taste similar to a german hefeweisen, but this is sweeter with fresh honey flavor.

M - Smooth drinking ale that is very sessionable.

O - Wasn't expecting much out of this and was surprised that it was a pretty decent beer. Beats the ton of mass produced garbage out there, and tasted nice on a hot Chicago afternoon.
