Can. A darker blonde color. Darker than most blondes. Aroma is mild. Smells like a soft blonde ale. Flavor is more intrigung but not by much. I dont pick up much hoppiness. It is mostly a mix of cereal, yeast and biscuit. Not a beer that stands up to competition; this was one of several beers I sampled in a short period of time. This one came off as boring and the whole "Let's equate our Blonde Ale to a blonde chick" schtick makes me want to run into traffic.

Truly a blonde bombshell. nice head. Beautiful goldenbstraw color. Aromas of hay, grain and light hops. Flavor is smooth and balanced. Not overwhelming. Very refreshing on a hot day as I review this. Definatly would buy again. Not a huge fan of blondes but this one is very mild. Will buy again.

Poured a hazy gold color with a quick dissipating head.. Nice creamy malts with very little or no hop taste on the palate.. Good to drink anytime anywhere with anyone
