Look: Clear gold with visible heavy carbonation. Good white, foamy head.

Smell: Sweet fruit, toffee, a hint of bubble gum. Reminds me a lot of Belgian golden ales.

Taste: A lot weaker than the nose. Sweet bready malt is practically the only flavor.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness, a bit dry, decent carbonation.

Overall: Disappointing. While the nose promises a lot of intriguing flavors, the actual taste isn't nearly strong enough to pull them out.

Decent looking brew with a disappointing lack of aroma and flavor. You think they could have done more here. Feels watery. I will not buy this again. Not nasty but no character at all.

It is essentially as tasteless as a Budweiser. Might be good for summer BBQs and such where one would normally consume macro-lagers. I had some Lagunitas IPA on hand, so I did this- To one bottle of this swill, I added in 1/3 a bottle of Lagunitas. It wound up tasting freakin' great after that. That easily doubled the flavor. Try it out, You will freak out on how good it tastes.

On tap at UNO Pizzeria 3/31/17. This beer poured a clear golden color with nice head and carbonation. I was pleasantly surprised by how much flavor it had. Many beers of this style are too watery for my taste. Smelled and tasted light and refreshing with subtle pine and citrus notes.

Hazy golden color; can poured into plastic cup (DWorld). Slight carbonation with little head. Light malts to nose; nothing else is memorable. Not your typical blonde ale; very light and malts linger. Will not try this one again.

Was hoping for a bit more out of this local brewery. Organic Hallertau hops create this Blonde Ale’s low hop bitterness and crisp, dry finish.

Had on ta

L: Pours a clear golden color. Minimal head.

S: Grainy and slight malts.

T/F: Not sure what it was but this beer tasted terrible. Was expecting a mild blonde and got a light beer with an odd biscuity flavor. Unpleasant and funky. No significant hops. Pretty carbonated and a bit watery.

O: Really didn't like this brew. Would avoid. Not sure what the funky taste was but didn't care for it.

Thin-bodied and weak for the style, underwhelming.
