Crackery and floral aroma, with some Pilsner characteristics. Taste is somewhat German, with a nice mix of fruitiness, crackers, biscuit, honey, hay and pepper. Finish is spicy and flowery. Crisp and refreshing moutnfeel. I'm not a big Blonde Ale fan, but this one is a lot better than I expected.

I had this in a flight at Bad Weather last weekend. It pours a light golden with a quickly dissipating white head. It's a very drinkable ale, but not remarkable.

Migration pours a copper color with a very small lacing head. Big sweet rose aroma. The taste is light, but has a sweet and bitter taste with noticeable rose hip flavors. Good body and feel. Overall, lots of rose hip.

At the taproom.

I don't really expect too much from a blond ale, and this one measured up. Light and drinkable while still maintaining a good amount of flavor, it gets the job done.

color is nice on this one - clear and golden yellow, with a white head and lots of lacing. nothing unpleasant floating around in there. carbonation is active in the glass.

smell is floral, which seems pretty expected considering the rose hips. there's a bit of sweeter smelling citrus there, too, perhaps, or maybe lemon zest.

taste is rose and sweet floral up front, with a crackery finish. it's very sweet.

mouthfeel is surprisingly chewy for me, but not heavy at all. mild carbonation.

no one's going to wait in line for this one, and it's not an everyday fridge favorite, but there's really no reason this beer was added 2 years ago and only has a handful of reviews. it's an interesting brew in a good way.

Pours a clear golden color with a dense finger of head that was slow to settle. Eventually it settles to a thick cap. Heavy lacing is left down the glass.

Has a distinctive aroma for a mild mannered blond ale. The rose hips give off a floral and fruity aroma. Almost like floral honey. It compliments the slightly bready grain smell.

Slightly sweet flavor that the rose hips compliments. Floral notes with honey, pears, grapes, and cereal. A complex little beer perhaps a little too sweet for my tastes.

Light and lively body. Nice fit for the beer and flavor profile. Other than the sweetness, this is quite enjoyable drinker that should appeal to new craft drinkers and the beer geeks.
