A tasty but forgettable fruit based pale ale. Nothing really offensive or off putting just OK

Slightly hazy transparent gold, with a rocky white head. Good retention, and sheets of lacing.
Smells like orange zest, lemon, honeydew melon, pineapple, guava, cracker, hay, and grass.
Tastes like orange, lemon, perhaps a touch of grapefruit; honeydew melon, pineapple, guava, green grape, cracker, honey, grass and hay. Crisp, clean, and lightly dry. Maybe just a hint of brief bitterness on the finish.
Somewhat light mouthfeel, but well carbonated. Very refreshing.
Overall, a really nice hoppy blonde ale! A great combination of fresh and fruity hops with a crisp and clean golden ale backbone. A very nicely done session ale take.

Can poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden yellow with a frothy off white head that settles to a light layer and leaves a little nice lacing.

S: Juicy tropical fruit, citrus, hints of melon, faint herbal earthy notes, crackery malt, and a touch of caramel sweetness.

T: Citrus, tangerine, lime, and grapefruit, tropical fruit, papaya, peach, passion fruit, and hints of melon, a little pine, slight earthy green herbal notes, crackery malt, and a touch of sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, faintly creamy.

O: I wouldn't mind just a little more sweetness, but overall it's a nice refreshing brew. IBUs might put it a bit closer to a pale ale than a blonde ale though.

Juicy Goodness pours a golden color, with a huge long lasting and lacing head. Topical fruit flavored aroma, and lots of hops. Flavor is strong, sweet tropical fruit, then a big harsh bitterness form the hops. Good body and feel. Overall, its good, the hops are a lot and a little overpowering for this beer.

12 oz can from the Wall of Beer (SC) consumed a little after the BB date stamp.
Pours hazy golden with a very good white head.
Hoppy aroma features tropical and pitted fruit notes.
The juicy flavor follows. Good balance.
Bold flavor with medium-high bitterness for style.

CAN
Platinum; tangerine zest; no malts, vague spun sugar, then a ton of citrus rind + juice, prickly ending that lingers; snappy.

Positioning this as a gateway beer is odd - this won’t win over anyone who doesn’t like hops. But for that, a bang of hops in a paper thin package, to the point of being almost alcoholic soda. Probably below a lawnmower beer, but I’d still kill it in hot weather.

Juicy Goodness has a thick, off-white head, a hazy, bubbly golden appearance, and heavy glass lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, resins, & white bread crust. The flavor is of those elements, with sugar and mild hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Juicy Goodness finishes mostly dry. RJT

Pretty much exactly as advertised: this is a blonde ale with a nice crackery malt backbone and fruity/juicy/tropical hop flavors. Very little bitterness. Decent for one beer but not something I'd want to drink more than one of.

A very nice, light but very orange forward ale. Crisp/hoppy finish. This would be a good summer drinker here.

A smooth and flavorful, slightly hazy beer. It starts juicy and sweet, then slowly reveals a malt profile and finishes with a medium bitterness left in the mouth. I think it's really well balanced especially for a 'blonde' even though it has many characteristics of a hazy pale ale. It doesn't feel like there's anything spectacular about this drink, but it sure is really good and drinkable.

Pours a clear gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong citrus hops, citrus, slight alcohol, slight sweet malt, and a hint of piney hops. Fits the style of an American Blonde Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong citrus hops, citrus, pale malt, slight grass, slight alcohol, slight sweet malt, and a hint of piney hops. Overall, good appearance, complexity, and blend, with a decent aroma and body.
