COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s Note: As of Spring 2013, this represents both a recipe change and a name change from the former version of this beer: http://www.ratebeer.com/Ratings/Beer/Beer-Ratings.asp?BeerID=163630

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. What’s your speed? Ours is a Single Speed.

22 oz bottle into a tulip. Nice golden color with a rich texture and a soapy head. Bland aroma, which led to a surprise as the jasmine notes emerged at the end of the tasting. Well crafted, enjoyable summer beer, but I wouldn't go out if my way for it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the can into my Choc Beer glass, this ale has a somewhat hazy yellow body with the skinniest of heads... soon a film. It has a yeasty, bready aroma along with some grainy sweetness and a spiciness that is presumably from the jasmine that it’s brewed with. (I read the can.) Said jasmine is rather subdued in the drinking, the flavor being mostly grain, but appears as a talc-like dryness in the finish. Not bad. Pairs well with shots of Evan Williams.

Pours the look of BMC swill, nose have a nice citric hay nose and flavor. A typical blond ale that is nicely blended, low abv, and quite quaffable. I’m a fan.

Pretty drinkable. Not quite fair to break this open here at a tasting with so many good beers. Pours golden with good head and lacing. Light hint of what tastes like florals actually. Bottle from Philly somewhere.
