Poured into tall pilsner glass. The beer had a color of hay. A white head presented and broke down to a very thick impenetrable quarter inch head. The color reminded me of a traditional lager or pilsner. The beer had a yeasty and bready aroma; maybe a faint of raw onions. With a strong sniff, there's also subtle smokiness.
Upon first sip it had a strong lemony flavor. Almost tart. It gradually combines with notes of grains. It finishes bready with a lot of yeast. Can still taste the yeast after the finish. It's like eating a lemon glazed bread, but minus the sweetness - just lemon-bread. It had a nice touch of sweetness at the end.
Very nice mouthfeel. Perfectly carbonated and light bodied.
Overall a great beer, starts out lemony and finishes yeasty. Seems almost like a farmhouse ale. Recently drank a Sophie and its similar in my opinion. It's a good beer to try, but not something I will seek out for. Probably best for the locals.

Poured from the bottle a hazy dull gold color with two fingers of bright white head.
Aroma of grassy hops, yeast, earth and children's vitamins.
Tastes of grassy hops, caramel malts, yeast, biscuit, white pepper and herbal spices.
Light-to-medium bodied and clean with a crisp carbonation.
I was pleasantly surprised by this tasty Blonde from Bat Creek. I'll have again.

Not bad looking, tan and pretty clear with a big fizzy three finger head that slowly went down and eventually left a thin film, with spotty chunks of lacing.
Smells quite nice, a bready malt and floral hops mixture, a touch of fruitiness.
Tastes quite good actually, and I'm not even a big fan of the style. Lightly fruity, tangy floral hops and biscuit/toasty malts along with some light spiciness makes for a rather tasty blonde.
Body is very light and pretty well carbonated, easy to drink, leaving a slightly slick, floral aftertaste.
Drinks well, this is a really good summer refresher that made preparing my sunday afternoon's barbeque quite a treat. Good job on this one.
Like the categories of adjunct lager, malt liquors, pilsners, etc, I don't think blonde ales get much love here. However, despite my not especially liking the style, this beer is a pretty good example of how a blonde ale can be a nice refreshing summertime staple.
Supporting small brewers is also important to me, so you can be sure that when it comes to bat creek brewing, I'll buy this one again. I still think their Machine Shed Stout is their best beer so far, but this one is pretty good too. Good luck guys!

Pours a clear, maize color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight earthy malt, sweet malt, hint of alcohol, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of an American Blonde Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus hops, slight citrus (pomegranate), slight pale malt, slight earthy malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good aroma, blend, body, and feel. The appearance is rather weak, though.

Picked up a bottle at Friat Tuck's in St. Louis. Still wishing they'll come out west to Columbia.
A - Poured out a clear, orange color with golden highlights. It had a small, white head of bubbly foam that left some thin rings of lace.
S - It smelled of yeastiness with some caramel sweetness.
T - It tasted of orange and citrus with some spicy bitterness. Good balance and more hop bite than most blondes.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.
O - This is a really blonde ale. It is better than most in this style category.

Reminds me of a Farmhouse Ale. This beer has a lot of DMS. That makes it hard to drink.
