Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Tone on 07-02-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Our American blonde ale is brewed with elderflower, red wheat, and three different varieties of hops. Elderflower adds a soft floral element that accentuates the red wheat. Single speed pours straw in color with floral undertones.

Up from Jacksonville FL and stopped in at the brewery.

A: Single finger head with little lacing on a clear right golden body.

S: Wheat, hint of floral hops and musty grain.

T: nice full grained flavor which isn't too sour and finishes a little tart and peppery. Has a bit of a noble and floral hop character.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: nice drinkable beer. The flavor is rich and full and mildly complex. A nice everyday beer.

On tap at Flamingo Bowl in downtown St. Louis.

A - Poured a hazy, golden yellow color with a small, white head of bubbly foam. It left some sudsy rings of lace.

S - It smelled floral and of fresh cut grass. Some caramel notes, too.

T - It had a nice caramel sweetness with a nice spicy hop bite.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale.

O - This is a nice sessionable brew. Glad I found it.

Pours an effervescent & slightly hazed gold with 2 fingers of egg-shell colored head. Stellar lacing &good head retention, clears up nicely

S: Floral & hay notes, perfumy notes

T: Wet grass, floral notes, hay & crackery notes up front, some hints of elderflower, plus aspirin bitterness also. More grassiness & bitterness. Finishes with aspirin like bitterness & hay notes

MF: Light body, lively carbonation, passable balance

Fairly easy to drink, but also not very memorable. Not one I'd buy again

Pours a hazy, gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, slight yeast, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an American Blond Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of yeast, hint of hops, and a hint of floral. Overall, good appearance, feel, body, and blend.

Poured from the bottle a clear gold tone with two fingers of white head.

Aroma of floral and herbal notes, light tropical fruits and grainy malts.

The tastes matches the aroma. Grainy malts upfront followed by light floral and herbs and tropical fruit notes. Finished with a salty bite.

Lighter bodied and dry with a sharp carbonation.

Overall, a bit on the bland side. I much prefer many of their other beers over this one.

pours a straw yellow, slightly hazed, lots of head.

malt, bread, biscuit, some zesty floral herbal hops.

similar to nose, very malty through out. flower and herbal flavors through out balance.

pretty light and easy, finish has this dankness that changes the way you taste it. my only beef is waaay over carbonated.

overall, an easy drinker. perfect for summer.

a clean golden pour with 2 fingers of fluffy white head giving off great amounts of lacing. smells of pilsner malt, lemon citrus, honey. the flavor is quite bland, mostly bready with a hint of grassy bitterness in the finish which actually makes you thirst for a bit more. EXCELLENT execution for a session ale. light tasting, light body, highly carbonated, very refreshing.. very mild flavored ale with a slight bitterness.. not a huge fan of session ales, though i do appreciate their function in the beer world.

for the style, it's decent. a little bland, but hey - that's kind of the point. nothing TOO fancy, but something simple enough to make the ABINBEV customer happy enough to drink this for a night.
