This beer pours a solid gold with a medium head. The aroma features honey, toast, almond, banana, and brown sugar. The flavor is crisp and clear, with toast of browned toast, woodsy hops and a touch of honey. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a solid dose of fizzy carbonation. Overall this is an easy drinking beer, but with good depth - a real treat.

The color was lovely but I didn't see it for long. This beer went down like no other I've had in a long while. I love Honey Blonde Ale and my daughter loved it too. I wonder if I can find it in Minnesota.

The honey is quite prominent but not sweet. Malty flavor of grain and barley with a light yeast and clove finish. The feel is a bit dry with an easy wateriness.

Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of pale malt, hint of sweet malt, honey, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an American Blonde Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. This is mistakenly checked in as a Cream Ale. Tastes of pale malt, hint of sweet malt, honey, and a hint of hop. Overall, weak appearance, average aroma and blend, but the body is pleasant.

On tap at the brewery. I’ve had this many times. Light pale straw body. slightly bitter taste with a touch of honey. This is a pretty easy drinking beer.
