Served on tap in a pint glass. Pretty much your average blonde ale. Pours yellow with a white head. Not too much going on in the nose. Just some grain malts and mellow hops. As it should be I guess. Taste is similar. Lacks depth and complexity, but is might taste good to someone who likes Budweiser or Coors. Drinks easy and might be good to wash down a burger.

2.6/5  rDev -21.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear but grainy, murky pale watery color with a medium white head that fades fast and leaves minimal lace.

The aroma is nutty, watery, and hints of grass.

Faint taste of nutty, toasty grains, water, and earthy/grassy elements.

Very watery, thin, and fizzy.

Overall, an easy drinking, watery, nutty tasting excuse for a beer.

Serving type: on-tap

First had: on tap at their brewpub

A standard blonde ale; poured a clear golden-yellow with about a finger of white head that dissipated to a few fizzy bubbles. Very light aroma of grains and fresh hops. Light taste, more grains, pale malts, light, floral hops, a little bitter in the aftertaste. Light-bodied and easily drinkable, just not really my style of choice.

Had this one on tap at the brewery in Colorado Springs early last week. Poured a light golden color with a little white head. Aromas of bread, grains and light hops. On the palate this one is very light bodied and kind of boring, with flavors of bread, light citrus and honey.

Tasting notes from visit to Colorado Springs 4/25/2008:

Look: Pale yellow-gold, hazy, minimal head, some lacing

Smell: Pleasant sweet pale malt aroma, very faint hint of butter, very low hops

Taste: Light, refreshing, some sweetness from malt and noticeable alcohol sweetness, minimal hops, just enough to balance which is acceptable for the style

Feel: Good moderate CO2, light-medium mouthfeel

Drink: Quaffable session beer. low flavor impact is good for all types of cuisine

My handwritten comments say "good wuss beer".

Had this the other night at small tasting away from the brewey

Poured a straw like color with a bubbly head. Head retention and lacing were below average

Huge floral hops nose and tart malty smells in the background

Taste: Floaral hops crispness with enough malt to compliment. Slight sweet honey taste and more floral hops in the finish

MF: Fairly well balanced, smooth with good carbonation level

I was suprised at how crisp and refreshing this was. May just be beacause I've drank a lot winter beers lately, but I think it was just a tastey ale, period

had in july while in the springs for my son bieristguts wedding on 7/2.from the tap. poured a golden yellow with a small white head. aroma found it hard to pick out anything that dominated this one got hints of malt, citrus, grains, couldn’t find the hops. flavor it was lacking in flavor, but some of the malts and grain did sneak out. this is a beer that you want to drink after mowing the lawn or working in the yard.

The beer pours a gold color with a thick frothy white head that fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a light pale malt scent with some hops in the aroma. The taste is good. It has a grainy pale malt flavor that goes down easy and finishes clean with a slight hop aftertaste. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a low bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a fine blonde ale. It's light and highly drinkable.

3.5/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a warm gold with a slight haze from being an unfiltered brew. It's white head starts off small and slowly fades away to a ring around the glass.

Smell: The aroma is a bit faint with some malty sweetness and a fair amount of freshly mown hay. No hop aroma whatsoever.

Taste: The flavor is a bit grainy, with a pronounced freshly mown hay character. There's some fruity esters, but they are restrained. Little to no hop flavor, and just enough bitterness to balance things out.

Mouthfeel: Fairly light in body, with a smooth crispness.

Drinkability: This is a well-brewed blond ale. There are no flaws or off-flavors; this is a simple crowd pleaser and a good beer for introducing someone to better beer.

Serving type: on-tap
