Had this at the Brewery. Quite frankly, its not my style. Far to bland for me but my wife and especially my daughter-in-law loved it and BOTH are not beer drinkers per se. I've sampled far worse Blondes.

A very drinkable golden ale with a hint of toasted malt character and a clean finish. This light bodied golden colored American Blonde Ale is smooth and easy drinking.

Had at BBC--Cedarville--served into a pint glass

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, gold in color, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: toasted malt, grass, and hops

Taste: grass is dominant, with some citrus hops, and bready maltiness

Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, light bodied, sweet with underlying bitterness

Overall: A very solid beer that reminds me of a cape summer. I could put away a couple. Nothing mind-blowing but very clean and solid.

A- Crystal clear gold/yellow color. Didn’t see the bartender do the pour, but when served, it had a finger of foamy white that dissipated to nothing. No lacing to speak of.

S- Mild grainy malt with some non-descript sweet fruit.

T- The grainy malt with the sweet fruit are a nice mix. Not the least bit bitter.

M- Very light body with moderate carbonation.

0- Tried this on tap my first night in Cape Cod. Very drinkable. Nice with a tuna steak, and its low ABV made me order a second one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5

Appearance - Pours a clear golden yellow with a white foamy head that settles rather quickly into a thin lacing along the glass.

Aroma - Malty biscuity smell, very very strong toasted wheat flavor. Very weak hint of citrus. Smells like an unfiltered wheat beer.

Taste - Very full flavored, bready, a lot of malt. Not very overpowering, and it's very very smooth.

Mouth - Again, it's very smooth. It's not watered down at all though. Very full flavor. Comparable to a hefeweizen.

Drinkability - This is an easy beer to go through an entire growler of. It's very smooth, and goes down very very easy. Easily one of my favorite Ales at the moment.

Consumed 5/24/13

Note: 500mL swing-top bottle

Appearance: Clear gold, with some pale straw - pours with a big, fluffy head, probably the result of massive carbonation - keeps a cap, leaves some streaks of lacing

Smell: Bready, grainy, with a nice level of hoppiness - reminiscent of a recently sliced loaf of light bread, surrounded by undercooked biscuits - floral and grassy hops, mild, which balances the mild malts - some herbal and citrus, too

Taste: Pleasantly mild and quaffable - bready, as in biting into a slice of bread, with some pale grains - interesting hop profile, with some herbal, earthy, citrus, and light fruit - mild bitterness

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation on the tongue (lower than the initial pour), light, clean, finishes very dry

Overall: The sand from the beach really makes this special

Blonde ales don't exactly generate much buzz. Probably because so many of them are actually crap... This is definitely above-average for the style. Very light, extremely drinkable, with some nice flavors. I would drink this again.

On tap at the brewery served in a taster.

Honest opinion - if this one is striving to be average, it hits the mark dead on.

Aroma - just OK. Nothing jumps off the page, but a little floral, a little malty. Nothing remarkable.

Taste - the same. A hint of malty character, a touch of floral character, but not much else going on. A decidedly average taste experience in my opinion.

Mouthfeel - OK, light, crisp, clean. Carbonation level was appropriate.

Overall - this is an OK beer, easy to drink, but there just doesn't seem to be much there in the flavor department.

Growler picked up at the brewery.

Poured into 08 Pioneer glass stein #42, formed a 3/4" off-white head over the clear golden brew. Head falls slowly, with lasting sticky lace. Aroma is fresh peppers with a lightly sweet undercurrent. Taste is malty to start, pepper comes on in the middle, and carries through to the cleanly hoppy close. Pepper character is more about the flavor, and less about the burn, which is fine with me. Mouthfeel is soft over the tongue, smooth, and drinkability is great. Interesting spin on their Blonde.
