Crisp and clean, with a nice hint of orange and citrus. Nice sweet after tastes and much more pleasant that first expected. A little heavy feeling for an American Blonde Ale. It's good to see that they didn't waste making a light beer here and this one could easily be a session beer.

A golden colored body with a thin head and good retention and lacing. The smell is some corn, and maybe a little fruitiness, I could hardly smell anything from this beer. The taste is of corn, sour fruit and some other stuff that I was not able to tell what it is. The mouth feel is a light feel that has a crisp clean finish and is a light and easy to drink feel. I did not like the taste of this beer, but seems to be made good for the style.

It's a dry beer with a crisp finish. Not as hoppy as expected.

Clear light golden brew with a thin white head and moderately low carbonation. Nose is of sweet caramel and toffee with little to no hop aroma. Subtle corn taste, faint pale malt with toffee and caramel notes (owing to the yeast strain used) and a mild clean finish. Low on bitterness with a soft, light mouthfeel. Probably the most drinkable of the batch
