Our American blonde ale is a soft and delicate ale brewed with pilsner malt and jasmine flower. The addition of jasmine adds a floral and slightly fruity layer. Single speed pours a crisp golden hue with floral undertones. Whatís your speed? Ours is a Single Speed.

Thanks to iNBe. Started a little sweet but sort of balanced out later, floral, soft, fruity, great big fluffy head. Not bad. Serving: Bottle

This is a pretty decent blond but Iím not sure I like the element the jasmine adds. Itís your typical craft beer hazed, blond w/ a small head. Itís a bit sweet but not cloying w/ and has a nice cereal sort of graininess to it. The jasmine--and I only think itís the jasmine--adds a bit of a floral note (of course) but I feel like itís also bringing a green vegetable taste to the table and that is not quite great. I think Iíd like this better w/o it but who knows for sure. Either way, I give it credit for be flavorful and drinkable which is 90% of what I want out of this style.

Pours a nice, frothy white head; very mild fruity aroma; light golden color; light sweetness, medium bitterness, light body, slightly creamy, average carbonation, smooth finish. There is nothing about this beer to get me excited, but it seems to me to be a solid blond ale.

This was a really easy to drink blond ale that was surprisingly tasty. It had a soft mouthfeel and the jasmine is noticeable. Only got one can and maybe will get a six pack.

Aroma is flowers and mild sweetness. The flavor is malts, fruit, mildly floral/citrus, a hint of spices and a mildly sweet finish.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015 12oz. Pilsner malt, nothing else....hmmm..Jasmise..oh, great. jasmine. Kind of a cheap tea feeling addition to a boring blonde ale. At least a straight up blonde ale would have been to a style. "My speed" is anything but this. Not impressive.

Sweet and malty, earthy. Hints of cereal and bread, then a bit of citrus. Light, but full. Meh.

Golden pour with a white head. Aroma is malty with a hint of jasmine. Taste is not as malty as the aroma suggests. Solid beer with jasmine in the aftertaste and finish. Very tasty, easy to drink.

Can. Pour is clear light gold with a small white head. A little light on the carbonation. Aroma and flavor light and floral with a touch of chamomile and yeast. Very sessionable and tasty. Often seems to be over or under carbonated in bottle/can. I feel like it would be top notch if the effervescence could be perfected.
