2.6/5  rDev -31.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

12oz bottle via trade.

The beer pours a hazy and very dark golden color with an absolutely insane white head that never fades. Too big if you ask me.

The aroma has a little bit of a BMC quality to it, a little grainy or ricey although I don't think adjunk was used here. Slight pale malt and just a hint of floral hops back it up.

The flavor is very uninteresting and rather cidery even. Sweet pale malt and very very slight floral hop bitterness. A slight unpleasant aftertaste.

Uninteresting palate, watery and a little on the flatter side without much to it.

Below average for the style. Didn't think much of this one. I'm surprised the other ratings are so high.

4.25/5  rDev +12.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Slightly cloudy and golden in color. Minimal head that leaves some nice lacing.

Sweet smelling. Honey like with graham cracker and pale malt and just a bit of citrus.

Lots of flavor for a blonde. Honey and graham sweetness along with a moderate hop presence that adds some floral and citrus notes.

A big and chewy body for the style. Smooth and mildly crisp.

Probably the best blonde I've had thus far. Lots of flavor and body. A really nice beer that I would have again. Drinks nicely and would please the BMC drinkers.

4.03/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Slightly hazy golden color with a solid one finger of head that had very good retention. Surprising amount of lacing for a blonde ale. The aroma consists of some grassy hops and bready malt. Nothing too unusual. Quite a nice tasting beer Mantorville Brewing came up with. Clean, bready malt complimented by some grassy hops. On the drier side. Maybe not as tasty as Gossamer Golden Ale which is a lot more hoppy, but this comes extremely close. Light body with a gentle carbonation that compliments the rest of the beer. Extremely easy to drink. My hometown brewery has a very good beer on the market. Sand Creek Brewing contract brews this beer.

This beer pours a slightly cloudy deep golden color. It is a little darker than most golden ales I've had, but I like that. The head is one inch in height, and recedes slowly into nice lacing. The aroma is of bready, with some nice light toffee, and caramel notes. There is also a hint of floral hops. This is a very nice nice aroma. It is very strong for the style, and has nice complexity. This taste is even richer than the aroma. The is more caramel and toffee up front with the bready notes lingering for a while in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a silky mouthfeel, and moderate carbonation. Overall, wow. This is hands down the best blonde/golden ale I have ever tasted. I am completely blown away by this beer. With every sip it reminds me more and more of an ale version of Grain Belt that is a little richer in both flavor and aroma, and has some extra toffee notes. I could easily see myself sessioning this beer on a hot summer evening.
