this is billed as a blonde ale, when I think of a blonde ale I think of something slightly dry with a pilsner/kolsch taste

A: Pours a nice off color yellow with fairly good clarity

S: a lot of coriander and a slight clove smell somewhat reminiscent of a hefeweizen

T: Great taste light refreshing with that coriander clove shining through with a surprisingly smooth finish water quality has a lot to do here and I'm detecting just a slight copper taste at the end perhaps older howler...

M: Great mouthfeel exactly what you want from a summer beer not overwhelming carbonation but a beer that can hold it's own ice cold or warm

O: a very solid beer from a brewer to watch out for you are going to see them on tap more and more I don't care for hefeweizens that much but this one hits on all the right cylinders. Give them a try

From a 12oz can.

Pours a golden yellow color with a bit of haze to it without the sediment, thinnish white head, doesn't hang around long but there are bits of sticky lacing on the glass as it empties.

Smell has a nice hop aroma to it, bit of pine with malty sweetness, doesn't slap you across the nose but fragrant enough to notice.

Taste is much hoppier than many of the IPA's I've drank, resiny piney bitterness up front, a grassy aftertaste lasts throughout, decent malt backing helps balance things, carbonation is medium with a sharp and refreshing bite, very easy drinker.

Expect a stronger than usual hop presence for a blonde ale.

Poured from a can. Starts with a one-finger head that settles quickly to a thin layer of fine bubbles with plenty of spots and streaks on the glass. The liquid is quite cloudy (particularly for a Blonde) with a dirty gold-light amber color.

Mostly pale malt aroma. There's a touch of earthiness and (very) light straight up floral hop nose.

The hop bitterness comes on quickly on the initial sip. There's very little time to get any malt on the tongue. The bitterness is direct and long lasting--going through the swallow and lingering long afterward. Lots of carbonation, but the brew has an average body otherwise.

Can from Bier Cellar.
Slightly hazy deep golden color with a decent sized bubbly beige head that slowly recedes. Toffee honey caramel maltiness with some solid citrus notes. Serviceable pale ale.

3.96/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to nice cap

S: Nice balance between grassy hops, some light grains, and bready malts. Not all that complex, but nice

T: Follows the nose. Restrained grassy and earthy hops come out first, quickly followed by the grains and lightly sweet, bready malts. Finishes with light bitterness and malts

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid pale/blonde ale with very nice balance and good drinkability. Just a good, straight-forward brew
