First had: on tap at their brewpub

Not retired. Had in fall of '11.

Poured clear golden-yellow, with just a few stray bubbles on top. Aroma of grains and pale malts, nothing too special. Simple taste, grains, sweet malts, lightly hopped. Light body, pretty easily drinkable, but nothing really distinctive or memorable. Aka, a typical blonde ale.

I'm grateful to have found a session ale. Looks like you'd expect a golden ale to look. The styrian goldings hops softly kissed my nose as the beer quenched my thirst with a light malt sweetness. American blond seems not quite right; I'd say a pale mild. Ideal choice for me this night.

Sampled at the brewpub. Presented as a light amber color with modest white puffy head. Smell is sweetly fruity, with lots of summer notes. Taste is also pleasantly sweet and very refreshing. Finishes very light and thirst quenching. Very good drinkability. Easy going down. Well suited for a hot summer afternoon.
