Had this at Uncle Uli's in Leavenworth. Crystal clear straw color with a nice white head. Floral and sweet notes in the aroma. Very smooth and malty flavor. Very drinkable. Light malty sweetness with mild bitterness and a dry finish. I'm not a huge blonde ale fan but I think this one represents this style well, and is another good beer from this brewery.

A - Hazy golden orange, finger of head dissipated to thin cover, consistent lacing
S - Grassy and peppery, light fruit, and a touch of grain
T - mellow citrus and pepper hops, quickly followed by crisp grassiness and biscuit and grain malt
M - fairly light with crisp and mild spiciness
O - Very much a classic pilsner flavour and feel, close enough to a blonde ale and worth a purchase either way

Review from notes.
A: Pours a light golden color, rather clear. Small white head on top that is gone quickly and leaves behind no lacing.
S: Very faint hops and some cereal grains. Pretty basic.
T: Some doughy malt mixed with faint citrus and a light flowery flavor.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty light and easy drinking.
O: Most American blondes really don't do much for me and this one was no different. Again, nothing really wrong with it, average.

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]
The pour was a hazy medium orange with a slight brownish hue and an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head, which did allow for some fair streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of citrus (orange), apricot and a mild peppery spice.
The taste a tad malty with a mild apricot sweetness from the start but quickly progressed into a hoppy bitter taste with a note of citrus peel and a slight peppery finish. The flavor stuck around for quite a long time with a mildly hoppy fruity taste left to linger.
Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a prickly carbonation.
Overall a nice crisp, hoppy Organic Ale that had just enough fruity sweetness to take the harsh bite out of the hoppy citrus peel ending...

On tap into an American pint glass on board an Argosy boat on Puget Sound. Had this one just as we were rounding Blake Island.
Pours a slightly hazy coppery color w/ a thin film of foam on top.
Aroma is hoppy, floral, slightly grassy.
Taste is a blend of biscuity pale and munich malts and floral hops. There's something else here I can't identify, a mildly unpleasant dank basement quality I've gotten from a few other beers. Something in the water, malt, or hops but I'm not sure what it is, vaguely reminiscent of overcooked green beans or broccoli. It's faint enough not to be offputting but certainly isn't making me enjoy this beer any more.
Mouthfeel is clean and balanced. About what you'd expect.
Overall a decent pale ale, aside from that vaguely musty quality on the palate. That's enough reason not to have this again though, given the crowded field of better pale ales out there.
