COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American (Blonde) Session Ale
Light on the palate and crisp from start to finish, Responders Ale demonstrates the fundamental importance of premium ingredients. Choice English barley, a touch of wheat and mild bittering provide the foundation for this light-bodied beer whose story is not light on fortitude. We honor and give thanks to our emergency responders. $3 from every case and $5 from every keg will be donated to the National Fallen Fire Fighers Foundation.

kramer (5095) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold body under a small fizzy white head that slowly faded to a thin covering. The nose is bready and crackery malts with a light hint of floral hops. The flavor is a bit thin and bland with a weak cereal grain finish and minimal floral bitterness on the finish. Not too much to write home about with this one. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a short finish. Pretty forgettable stuff, even for a Golden Ale.

radagast83 (5062) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Poured a 5oz sampler at the source. Poured a bright yellow color, small off-white color. Like a fizzy yellow beer. Aroma was light grain, some lemon notes, with some light honey notes and some yeast. Flavor was mostly bland. Not horrible, just so so. I would say this crisp beer would be better suited for people who are just getting into craft beer.

ben4321 (4093) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/28/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly bready, with some clean malts, grains, and some light fruity notes
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear golden color with a small foam of white head and streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly sweet, malty and bready, with an underlying, light fruity hop bitterness
Palate: This one has a light body, a clean, crisp drinkability, and an average-to-soft carbonation
Overall Impression: I thought this was a decent offering. It has some nice components to it, and it drinks cleanly and easily. It’s nothing super complex or exciting, but for a light bodied easy drinking beer, this one works pretty well, and is certainly better than I expected.
