The appearance is pale gold with an average head. The aroma is light with hoppy and grassy elements and malt that follows. The taste is like the aroma being more hoppy than expected giving it a bitter taste but not a strong one. The palate is thin. Overall a decent beer that is pretty average.

I had a chance to visit the Orlando Brewing tasting room and unfortunately I was not a fan of their Blonde Ale. The beer poured a clear pale yellow beer with white head that left some spotty lace. The smell was mostly grain with very light lemon zeal. The taste was more of the same....very grainy. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall, I wouldnt seek this beer out.

On-tap at 903 Mills Market in Orlando. Pours a pale golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is light malts with a touch of hops. The taste like the aroma is light bodied with some grain and a touch of hops that goes down very easy. This is a beer with that is very drinkable and would be a great session beer.

Had this on-tap at Raglan Road in Downtown Disney.

In to a Guiness Tulip

Very clear light golden color with a thin white head that receded kind of quickly and didn't leave much in the way of lacing on the glass at all.

Smell was grainy with some herbal hop qualities to it, though they were acceptably light. Very clean smell.

The nose carried over well in to the taste with the added touch of some very light toast, bread notes.

Thin body with far too much carbonation. The tickle on the tongue was a bit too much, even for the style.

Overall I would have probably ordered another if it weren't for the carbonation. After a hot day walking around the parks it was a good beer to sit back and relax with.

Picked this up at the ABC store on S. Orange Ave. in Orlando while on vacation last Sept. Enjoyed last night with my supper, a Monte Cristo sandwich.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle.

Appearance: Thick & frothy white head that rests comfortably at 2 fingers and looks to want to stay. The body is a mostly clear honey color. Near perfect looks.

Smell: No hops, some cereal and kind of smells like an adjunct lager though not as offensive.

Taste: Hint of hops but the flavor is mostly dominated by a grainy, mineral-like feel which lends it a certain bitterness. Finishes a bit skunk-like which is off-putting a bit but not offensively so.

Mouthfeel: Prickly carbonation, slightly watery in the finish but otherwise good. Bitterness challenges the balance.

Drinkability: Goes down easy and i think i might pick this up again.

Overall: Better than i expected. The finish could be better but otherwise a decent offering. Give it a try.

Poured into a standard pint glass.

A: Clear, light golden yellow like pee with a natrual white soda-style head and little rising bubbles throughout.

S: Clean rain and cereal grains; smells like beer. Light perfumey notes.

T: Nice carbonation. Wood and ash...yeasty with a salty character. Whole wheat and corn syrup are detectable with a dusty, slightly plastic, earthy finish.

D: Not so much for me.

Value: This stuff is overpriced.

The beer was served on-tap at the Orlando Brewing tasting room, and served in a pint glass. The beer pours a very pale yellow-gold color with a slight haze and a thin ring of filmy head. There is a light toasted bread and butter aroma. The flavor is toasty, also, and very crisp and light. There is a toasty and slightly hops-peppered aftertaste. The finish is smooth and light. Very tasty.
