I had this one a couple of times and it paired well with lighter food, since it's a blonde ale. Nothing too memorable, but I did order it again, so that tells you something.

Small white head quickly faded into a thinnish lacing above a clear to slightly hazy, sightly copper hue on a golden colored ale.

Aroma is slightly sour citrus with some noticeable caramel malt in the background.

This medium bodied beer bring more malt out in the taste than you notice in the aroma but it keeps some of the citrus hops right along with it giving you a pretty good tasting drink.

Another of Rock Bottom's pretty average beers. Good stuff, but nothing to write home about -- just something to write a review about.

Golden color, white head that mostly fades to ring, soft carbonation, and a nice mouthfeel. Surpising bit of caramel flavor and just a hint of orange. I would call this a fairly one-dimensional, but highly drinable beer, lacking in complexity, but pleasant.

Sampled at the brewery in Denver, CO. Brilliantly clear golden with caramel accents, forming a small white head with poor retention and lacing. Mild carbonation. Aroma is fruity with citrus hoppiness. The taste begins with a floral hoppiness, ruddy, earthen amber malts, a lager-ish sulfuriness, and finishing with an earthen bittering hop. Somewhere, there are notes of butter and onion. Mouthfeel is smooth with a lightly dry finish. An odd brew, hardly fitting into the pale ale category.
