Dogbrick (8239) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Clear yellow-gold color with a medium bone white head that diminishes steadily to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus and malt. Light body with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

hopscotch (9228) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Draft... RBSG 2014... Pours clear and yellow with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The olfactory standouts are citrus fruits, melons and musky underarm funk. Medium-bodied with vibrant carbonation. The flavor is bright, lightly bitter and juicy - citrus fruits, tropical fruits and melons. Crisp finish - and then comes a mild, rindy bitterness that lingers.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Draft at the brewery for the RBSG bus tour, served in a small snifter. Pours a clear pale gold with a small white head. Notes of citrus fruits (grapefruit, orange), tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, melon), florals, bready malts, leaves, and straw. Clean and hoppy at the same time. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Man, what a killer blonde ale. I think most on the tour agreed that this was a candidate for canning, something that could be consumed all day.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Sampled at the brewpub on the 2014 RBSG bus tour - Pours clear golden yellow with a white head. The aroma has pineapple, mango, mild malt and hints of pine & citrus. It has a light crisp body with lots of micro carbonation. The flavor begins with tropical hops, smooth malt and some minor breadiness. The finish has crackers, earth, woodiness and grapefruit citrus. Really nice lower alcohol hop forward blonde.

EyeAmBaldman (270) - Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Pours a hazy light golden blonde with a nice white head. Aroma is like peach juice with a hint of hops. This is basically the Single Speed dry hopped and it is tasty. Doesn’t have the jasmine back end of the Single Speed. Hoppy and tasty stuff!

DrSilverworm (6575) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewery during RBSG. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Leaves nice thicker lace. Awesome big zesty citrus nose. Moderate bitter taste. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Light spicy. Very solid, light spicy hoppy blond ale. 7/4/6/3/13

Repeat rate on tap at the brewery during RBSG: Somehow I rated this twice in the same visit. Clear golden color. White head. Good bits of lace. Awesome el dorado lightly spicy grapefruit aroma. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Zesty taste, light to moderate bitter, good moderate sweet. Awesome blond ale. Very much my style. [Scores from 2nd rate kept. Seems like I enjoyed it much more. Probably a fresher sample, too].
