3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a pale golden color, but with a very nice head. Looked like a pale ale. Smelled like a pale ale, decent balance of malt and hops, the latter somewhat assertive (particularly for a blonde ale). The flavor was pleasant, smooth, and very drinkable for a light style beer. Some caramel malts noticeable, but there was a light toasted flavor underneath that made this thing fly. American hops presence is clear. After eating some barbecued pork, however, this thing picked up a somewhat annoying floral flavor: lavendar? Also, became somewhat watered down. For a blonde ale, not bad, but Iím wondering if they didnít target a pale ale and screw up... Mouthfeel was thin, and would have gotten killed if an APA, but for a blonde ale, whatever... Finished somewhat dry. Not a bad beer for a blonde ale, but if an American Pale Ale... BOOOOO!!!! Iíll be somewhat lenient, since this is for a good cause.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle... Clear, light golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Sublte nose; almost nondescript. The flavor is perfectly balanced, but uninspiring. I can only pick up some tanginess up front, followed closely by a laid-back bitterness. Fairly thin on the palate. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. Medium length, almost tart, then dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden w/ a shallow, spritzy froth. Aroma is slight w/ malt and spice. Light to medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are bright, crisp, clean, and slightly fruity with a slight hop character. Finish is wet w/ a perfect bttering. Overall: I like it. Well ballanced, complex, delicious.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazed, lightly laced golden appearance with a thin white head. Cereal influenced malty aroma, with a mild vegative edge. Medium bodied mouthfeel, relatively smooth, decently carbonated. Taste was modestly bitter, but the hops were struggling to assert themselves.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper in the glass with little head and tiny lace. I really canít pick up any aromas here, maybe some spice and marshmallow as the beer warms. Nutty flavor, slight citrus with a mild bitterness, and a smooth mouthfeel. Slightly bitter back. Extremely bland, and forgettable. It is easy to drink, but very forgettable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from bottle. This ale pours clear golden brown with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma is robust with toasted malts and honey. Flavor is refreshingly bitter and finishes suprisingly crisp & clean. Toast & floral hops are most notable. Medium-bodied with light to moderate carbonation. Quite drinkable. Drink some today for the cause!
