Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a two finger white head that dissipates slowly to a thin cap and heavy ring around the edges. Aroma of light bready malt, grassy hops and a hint of sourness. Flavor is biscuit malt, light honey and grassy hops, finishing with grassy hop bitterness. Light flavored and otherwise unremarkable, but redeemed somewhat by the light honey in the background.

Surprisingly tangy and flavorful light brew. Attractive golden color in the glass with a foamy cap that needs to be renewed with another pour, but it's nicely sudsy in the mouth. This wouldn't be mistaken for anything but a Blonde, but it has some flavor. The honey is just perceptible, but adds a pleasant background flavor.
There is a slight brisk hoppy taste with a slight bitter aftertaste. A hint of resin and something herbal. Not much to get excited about, but a decent representative of the style. A little honey and flowers in the nose. From the 12 oz bottle bought at AJ's Fine Foods in Phoenix.

Poured this American Blonde Ale from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a clear yellow color, produced a nice white head, decent retention and a nice amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma consisted of pale malt, white pepper and a touch of honey.Medium bodied, easy to drink there was a foundation of pale malt, sweet honey and fruitiness. Dry finish. Overall, decent summer brew but there is nothing that makes this beer stand out.

Served from a 12 ounce longneck bottle into a Shaker pint glass. The label states "Ale brewed with honey and spices". A medium pour produces about an inch of snowy-white, creamy froth that sticks to the sides of the glass. The beer is a pale honey-golden in color. Moderately carbonated.
Not much on the nose, but mine is not very sensitive. A faint aroma of floral hops and pale malt. The honey taste is very apparent in the burps, which is really the way I smell beer. The honey is also apparent in the taste, which I like. (Why put honey in there if you can't taste it?). The spices are also very detectable but not overbearing by any means. I'm thinking maybe I'm tasting a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. Maybe just a kiss of hops on the palate and tongue, but basically very clean, with a pretty nice malty and mead-like aftertaste.
I love a lighter beer for the warmer weather that has some taste to it other than corn mash. This one fits the bill nicely, and I will definitely seek this out again.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a weizen glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live.
A- Half-finger white head, virtually no retention. Pale golden color with high clarity. No real lacing. Not very appealing.
S- Light malts, grass and soap. Maybe some honey if I stretch for it, but otherwise very bland.
T- Spicy hops, golden malts. It's alright.
M- Light bodied and aggressive carbonation.
O- Not great. Below average. Avoid.
