A - Cloudy light straw color. Descent Head. Pours nicely.

S - Slight Floral, but overall pretty weak. Did not take a whole lot from the sense.

T - EZ going down. Nice taste. Tastes like a lite beer. Which I guess it could be?

M - Clean, Descent throughout the palate but great finish.

D - Easily goes down , overall I could have more than a couple!!!

On tap at the Broomfield, CO location as the Colorado Blonde.

Poured a light yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas of graininess and some sweet maltiness. Tastes of grains and had a light honey sweet finish. This was all around weak and thin, but it is a Blonde Ale, so that's expected.

A: Light straw color; very cloudy. Poured a two finger pale white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Minimal lacing. Decanted slowly throughout.

S: Very light herbal aroma. Some sweetness coming from malt. Overall, very weak.

T: Like aroma, not a lot here. Again, its slightly sweet - sort of a honey or yeasty bread taste. Very light.

M: Crisp and clean, but a little thin. Very nice cleansing finish.

D: Very easy to drink. Growler was empty in two settings.

Bottle obtained from the brewpub and consumed about a month later. Pours a one finger airy white head over a crystal clear macro appearing liquid. Smells super mild with hallertauer smelling hops and gentle malt sweet. Taste is also gentle. It's mostly dark oil hops (similar to Budweiser) with a hint of iron tiny hop flavor too. Yeah, it's kinda sweet with a hint of red licorice and honey in the flavor. Not much to say here, as I said, the flavors are quite mild. Light body and moderate carbonation. This is basically a pretty tasty macro...which, although easy to quaff, isn't to style at all.
