I poured this from a bottle into a clear teardrop glass. I grabbed it in a hurry thinking, I have to go to the bathroom real bad but don't want to walk out of here without beer. I'm happy I grabbed it! It pours a nice hazy golden with a one-finger white head. It has a real nice body to it for a blonde beer. I was hoping it wasn't going to be a Hamm's or Miller bunny piss beer. I'd buy it again!

A : This one looks promising. Soapy white 3 finger head; underneath it is a pineapple-mango blush @ 70% opacity. The head leaves lacing gracefully around the glass as it recedes lackadaisically. Solid.

S : I'm smelling baked field grains, cured with honey; and pretzel-like breadiness with salt and coriander. Slight hop trailing behind.

T : Very balanced!!! The hops and malt chase each other around, yin-yanging each other. Lemon peel and pretzel bread respectively, and the finish...to die for. It waves goodbye as fresh bread from the oven peers through and swarms the back of the palate. Love it.

F : Creamy, with moderate carbonation, ending slightly pasty/parched/dry. The beer's weak suit.

O : Hell yes, I'd have this again. The pretzel bread and yeast mixed with a near-perfect balance of citrus peel from the hops makes this a world-class brew in my opinion. This beer rocked my world! I'm telling my friends about this one! But first, I'll have to make some friends! ;-)

Good beer for a hot day if you like a tastier and slightly heavier beer you can drink 3-4 of.

Lonely Blonde pours a hazy golden color with a small but lacing head. Aroma is very big, lots of creamy crisp malt notes. Taste is stronger, nice creamy semi sweet crisp malt flavor. Nice feel, great body. Overall it is a top notch blonde ale.

A- a bubbly golden yeloow with a decent head. little lacing that drops slowly.

S- Malt with a sweet almost honey scent

T- Nice crisp malt flavor with a bit of sweetness mixs in the middle and a nice bite to finish it off.

M- Nice carbonation and nice little bite at the end

O- Good good beer, more flavor than I expected from a blonde beer. Nothing too spectacular though.

A: clear straw colored, under a quickly dissipating white head
S: slight sweet malt aroma, some bread with a little floral and fruit.
T: Starts with slightly dry malt flavors then a little hops and a dry hop finish – the hops are more floral than bitter. It has medium body and has a little tartness in the finish – a little lemon. No caramel tastes, the hops are not overly aggressive, medium bitter. No diacetyl.
F: medium light body, medium carbonation, slight creaminess
O: Good balance of bread, fruit, and bitter that finishes more hoppy than malty with lingering hops. Easy drinker.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear golden orange with lots of rising bubbles. Decent three fingers of white head with good retention. Lacing is moderate around the glass.

Smell: Sweet and bready pale malts with some caramel and toffee. Lots of grainy wheat. Some hints of lemon zest and honey. Also some hints of noble hops. Smells crisp and fairly sweet.

Taste: Like the smell leads, a sweet and crisp taste of pale malts with some bready caramel. Big presence of wheat grains throughout. Some hints of lemons and honey. Finishes with a light amount of noble hops.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very crisp, clean, and smooth.

Overall: A pretty solid take on a Blonde ale. Tasty and very easy to drink.
