A- This Blonde pours a yeasty, hazy golden color with tinges of orange, copper and rusty tones around the edges....the head isn't very impressive, being only about a half inch in thickness and fizzling out very quickly into wisps swirling around the top of the liquid. Carbonation looks to be modest and lacing is also rather dumbed down...with a mainly oily looking film sticking to the side of the glass....underwhelming at best.

S- Huge bread and yeast dominate the nostrils, with sweet caramel malts following suit, providing a buttery sweetbread aroma. Less prominent smells include some mild citrus, toffee, and the finish is of a very mild hop bitterness that retains some cleanliness and freshness.

T- Slightly citrusy, loads of yeast and bread and overall clean....not much else to say here! It is pleasant on the palate and the finish is clean with some mild hop cone bitterness....a nicely flavored Blonde Ale!

M/O- Medium bodied and super smooth carbonation make this an easy going, enjoyable beer to consume anytime.....the creamy nature of the yeast reminds me of freshly baked buns/dessert bread with a drizzle of melted butter! I would buy this one again! Cheers!

Poured from a 16 oz bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a clear, pale golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is hops, some grass or grain and honey. The taste is mild and very pleasant.

Nice blond ale with mildly dry finish. Golden color with fine carbonation, and a skin of a head. Aroma is malt and light citrus, taste is malt, saltines, with a nice touch of hops. A good British beer....

I couldn't finish it. It's made with barley malts and may be the cause of the undesirable taste.

Nice easy-drinking beer, very mild in all the attributes that I care for like hop-malt-yeast balance. More bitter than aromatic, but still very mild by my palate. Aroma was more bold than flavor, reminded me of a Belgian blonde in maltiness and yeastiness, but didn't deliver those notes on the flavor. Mouthfeel was pleasantly light, and carbonation was medium-low. Fans of bold ales may find this a bit boring, but it would be a good summer beer.

Pungent aroma. Good taste for a Blonde Ale but a little bitter.
