Blonde ale is blonde in color. Brings down a full inch of white head that doesn't translate to lace on the glass. Aroma was like, not there.

Taste, light floral hops, super light body. You know the story, super cracker like malt body, a little bit of bitterness, easy to drink. Middle of the road stuff.

So good. So creamy, you could pour it on your cereal. Luke Tippins would disagree but you can never have too much of a good thing. Best served at The Lynd Cross

Somewhat smooth taste, not as appealing as thought, not very good

Pours a beautiful orangish-gold color into a typical pint glass with plenty of light cream color head. Light carbonation and plenty of lacing. The smell has light hints caramel and citrus. The initial taste is quite pleasant with light citrus, more caramel flavor and lightly roasted malt, crisp flavor. The aftertaste is nill. Overall, I could see myself enjoying several of these during the summer months. Would definitely buy more.

12oz bottle from Craft Beer Cellar in Ft Collins CO, poured into a pint glass. Best by Jan 2016.
Pours clear, orange amber with very little head. Lacing is minimal and foamy. Aroma is dark fruit, with maybe a hint of orange or lemon. Comes on with a sweet, fruity taste leading to a bare hint of sourness in the finish. Sweet, smooth, and slightly warm mouthfeel. Overall, a simple nicely flavored brew-enjoyable bit not noteworthy.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/8/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, light fruitiness, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, light fruitiness, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a very good English pale ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
