3.75/5  rDev +16.5%

A clean nose with a touch of spice and light fruit.
Pours clear amber blond with a 1" white foam cap.
Has rich Munich malt flavors but the hops taste a little dull - could be on the old side. Clean and crisp with a dry finish.
Medium high carbonation, medium light body.

Appearance: Gold, with good carbonation but a low, thinning head.

Smell: Toast, caramel.

Taste: Caramel, then tingly citrus/grass, then a more toasty note on the finish.

Overall: Another local beer, in a can, so I had to give it a shot despite blonde ales being pretty low on my favorites list. This is actually a pretty interesting beer, though it is named Nordic Blonde it is more of an amber ale in flavor and color. Pretty tasty, worth a try.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy copper golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About one finger of white head that fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: A fairly light, sweet, and bready malt forward aroma with hints of fruit. Pale malt with hints of biscuit, grains, wheat, cracker, caramel, and yeast. Subtle citrus fruit hints of orange and lemon. Slight hint of honey. Hops are very light. A pretty laid back but decent blonde aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a light and crisp malt driven taste with sweet notes of fruit. Upfront taste of pale malt with crisp notes of biscuit, wheat, grains, cracker, yeast, and caramel. Subtle citrus fruit notes of orange and lemon. Sweet note of honey as well. Very subtle notes of floral hops. A light but decent taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp and clean with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: An ok brew for the Blonde Ale style. Very light but whats there is decent.

Pours out amber/light orange in color with a tiny white head that dissipated very quickly. Smell is pretty subdued and not very strong. I get light caramel malts and some very light fragrance of sweetness and a little TINY bit of sweet tang to balance things out if you could say that. The smell is quite subdued as I mentioned before. Taste is much like the nose but a little more forward. I certainly taste some earthy malts with a tiny bit of tangy sweetness. After swallowing I can taste a tiny bit of bittering hops that stick in the mouth a tad and don't seem to follow in the throat. Mouthfeel is very thin which would seem to be right on for the style. Overall this is a decent beer but not a style I drink often. It seems done OK for the style. It's not something I would seek out again as it's not really one of the styles that I would typically drink but if it's yours I would give it a try. After drinking a little more and being less critical it actually drinks well. Definitely a session beer.
