Just made it into Washington last night and this was the first draft I got at the landing. Appearance was great and just the perfect hue for the style. Nose had a wonderful aroma but wasn't overpowering. Taste was light and refreshing and fit the style well! Only problem I had was the bar served it in a frozen glass so I had to let it sit which then the head was gone by the time the glass thawed... Not the brewers fault, just an uneducated bar...

Pours a hazy, golden/yellow color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of yeast, slight hops, citrus, and sweet malt. Fits the style of a Kolsch. Mouth feel is smooth and slightly thick with an average carbonation level. Tastes of yeast, wheat, citrus, and slight hops. Overall, a decent Kolsch that tasted especially good on a 90+ degree day.

The Augusta Blonde was on tap at Square One - ya know, another tasty brew. I'm really digging their brews!

Very deep straw colored brew in the pint shaker, almost lite amber with a white head leaving a sheet of lace. Nice light malty aroma, and the quaff was a study, steady, and drinkable strong grains with a balanced hop finish.

A fine beer, for all beer drinkers to enjoy - my wife really savored this brew.

Clear medium gold. Very fine bright white head sits and stays.

Lovely grainy malt and wheat nose, supported by a well-integrated green grape fruitiness. Nice touch of earthy, spicy hop as well. All put together in a subtle Kolsch-ish package. Great nose.

Medium in the mouth with an excellent grain presence. Subtle, yet complex, hop notes. Just a hint of the fruitiness promised by the nose. Good length and a nice, crisp finish.

Very nice mouthfeel. While its a beer that's easily quaffable in quantity, with, or without food, its subtle complexities are well worth contemplation. Thanks, Mark for the generous trade!

Augusta Blonde Ale is a German style kolsch that is light yellow in color with a smooth clean taste and dry flavor and hop bitterness that is slightly assertive in spite of a very low IBU. Very refreshing on a warm humid Midwestern summer day. This beer was enjoyed at the Great Midwest Beer Fest and was along with the O'Fallon Smoked Porter one of the beers that I really enjoyed. Thanks winomark, I will be looking at the ABC brews more closely this year.
