A- Mahogany color almost red, opaque with a half fingers width of off white head with an OK lacing.

S- Very aromatic with a very noticeable honey tone and under tones of sweetness and alcohol.

T- Off the bat, just like the first whiff, a taste of honey. There is a very brief taste of alcohol but not as noticeable as the smell of alcohol i had. It is very well hidden behind the sweetness of this beer.

M- This beer coats your mouth in a syrupy layer and finishes off smooth. The taste lingers on your tongue, but only for a moment

This brew from Harlem Brewery was a good buy. The golden color was dark golden color just had me wondering at first if this was a hybrid beer between an amber and an adjunct lager.

The aroma of this brew was malty with just a hint of hoppiness. Tasting this beer I found it quite smooth and refreshing not too heavy on the pallet.

Overall I would recommend this beer for parties and having a few while watching the game.

When I poured it into my beer glass the apperence
was deep golden with a small amount of lace on
the side of the glass and a small head on top.

The aroma is a fruity hopness with a breaded malt
smell that over powers the hops.

The taste is a medium bitterness with a spicy
dryness. More of a malt finish.

The mouthfeel is more creamy with a hint of zest
going down.

Overall I like how it's not over powering in the
taste buds. A beer I break to when I'm not in an
IPA mood. One of the best american blond ales I've had this summer!

Appearance - Pours a dark amber/golden color with a half inch head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is very nice.

Smell - Sweet with bread, grains, honey, and floral hops.

Taste - Light hint of honey with a few spices I can't point out. It's very sweet with pale and toasted malts, citrus, floral hops, and bitter dry finish.

Mouthfeel - Light body with mild carbonation.

Overall - The taste of this beer is a lot different than any other blonde ale I've tried.. It's not exactly a good thing, but not bad either.
