Well, it's quite a Blonde Ale. Certainly strong though you absolutely don't sense the alcohol content. Attractive amber color in the small tulip with sufficient head and carbonation. There is a really interesting roasted taste along with the light malt. Spicy and spritzy mouthfeel, though rather light bodied. Fragrant with a distinct tang of honey, but without the sickly sweet flavor of too much of the stuff.

Quite a refreshing change from a whole lot of strong beers that are over-hopped and over-spiced. A big beer with a refreshing quality-- subtlety. On tap at Tiger Tiger on El Cajon Blvd.

On tap at Latitude 33. Snifter.

A: Dark orange with two fingers of mousse-like foam. Great retention and scattered lacing.

S: Sweet bread blends with biscuit, floral aromatics, and a whisper of vanilla. Honey, ripe golden apple, earthy hop characteristics, and a touch of citrus.

T: Bready malt with ample sweetness and notes of honey, apple, and pear. There's a low earthy bitterness and alcohol is well hidden throughout. The beer is pretty sweet, almost candied. Sweet citrus in the slightly boozy finish.

M: Medium body with upper medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.

Overall: A nice strong blond with well hidden alcohol. The sweetness cuts down on the drinkability but I suppose that comes with the style.

On tap at Latitude 33 Brewing Company in Vista, CA.

Pours a slightly hazy honey orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, honey, and spices. Taste is much the same with a sweet and fruity flavor. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
