look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

12 oz. brown bottle. No Freshness date. Twist off.

A: Pours a very nice straw yellow. A nice white head
forms and lasts till the end. Strong carbonation with
minimal lacing.

S: Sweet and lite. Mixture of malts, spices and hops.

T/M: Hops are lite and malts are sweet. A small lemon
flavor comes in but its not enough to save the beer
from being too bland. Goes down smooth with a clean
aftertaste.

O: This Summer Blonde is easy to drink but needs to
be crisper and more refreshing. Flavors are subdued
which hurts its potential.

Cheers!

stopped by the brewery the other day to meet up with local BA joefuzz (great to meet you and thanks for the killer box!!!) and noticed i hadn't reviewed this one so got a pour.

a - straw honey yellow with thin fizzy head and visible carbonation.

s - fairly malty.

t - again leads with the malts with some subtle hopping and a bit of lemon. very subtle taste.

m - soft easy drinker...nice for the summer.

o - nothing mind blowing but a good session beer.

Serving type: on-tap

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at Pete's Saloon in Elmsford, NY.

Appearance: clear light golden hue with a light effervescence and a finger of creamy white foam. Not bad.

Smell: lightly spiced, floral, somewhat soapy aroma. Decent, middle of the road spiced summer ale.

Taste: starts off with a light hint of lemon; proceeds with a grainy blonde ale flavor with some floral notes. Not bad.

Mouthfeel: light body with a lightly refreshing fizz. Does what it needs to do.

Overall: a decent but unremarkable spiced summer blonde ale.

Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to the creator of the can quest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malty, sweet. Taste is very mild, some light malts, a touch of floral hops. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

No more than one finger white froth of head over light golden body, very bubbly. Nose is slightly buttery, and it's hard to pull much else out. Flavor deals very little to the palate. Grainy and a minor smack of fresh grass if I focus hard enough. Good carbonation, but what's that without some flavor?

Overall, the neutral flavor and mouthfeel make this for an easy beverage to down immediately in 90+ degree heat. Other than that, I wouldn't reach for this again.

Light gold with a sizeable head and good retention. Light malt aroma with mild lemony hops. Taste follows nose with a decent dry bitterness in the finish. Good overall malt backbone. Light feel with a refreshing carbonation and quenching character. A nice beer overall.
