look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from a 12 fl oz bottle into a pint glass. For brewery fresh taste, purchase before FEB 14.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden body with a thin white head.

Smell: Awful. Smells nauseatingly yeastier than my subpar homebrew.

Taste: Better than the aroma, but not by much. Again, the dull yeast flavor is overpowering. I definitely could replicate this in my kitchen - not that I would want to.

Mouthfeel: OK, I guess.

Overall: It is no wonder why blonde ales are so hard to make. It is truly an exact science to get rid of (or at least hide) all of the off flavors. The only way to make this beer better would be to hop (and/or lager?) the hell out of it.

A-a deep clear gold with a creamy white head that leaves some nice lacing.

S- sweet and bready. A little hint of floral hops.

T- not bad but not overwhelming. Slight notes of bread and no hops. Pretty non-descript.

M-nice and full

O- not bad but missing some of malty robustness that comes with gold/blonde ales.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a translucent straw with a tiny white head. Smells of grain and slight fruit, kind of inviting. Tastes of grain and very slight fruit. Beer is light bodied and goes down smooth, very drinkable. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

A - Of course golden in color very bright yellow, bubbly with a 1/2 inch of sticky white head. Good carbonation bubbles throughout.
S - Smells good for a blonde decent hops and bready with sweeter malts.
T - One of the better blondes I had. Decent floral hop profile, sweet malts, and a crisp bready finish.
M - Light to medium bodied, easy to chug and session able.

Overall a really easy going summer ale that has just enough flavor to keep it interesting. Worth picking up as a single or even a six pack.
