Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2011
On tap at the brewery tasting room. Mild hop bitterness. A transition beer. Soapy head on yellow. Decent enough drinkability for the summer. Avoidable for their more bolder tasting beers. Middling mouthfeel.

BVery (5612) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. Clear yellow pour with a clingy white head. Aroma of grass and mild hop. Medium smooth palate. Wow - frickin’ good! This is their "default pale" beer? Grass, malt, light hop flavor - good stuff.

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Draft sample. Poured hazy yellow color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate hop, yeast and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium balanced finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable starter brew.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Sampled on tap at the brewpub (Madison, WI). Pours a nice lightly glowing straw hue, yellow with a touch of bready yeast. Lingering grainy malts, cereal grains, a touch of grass but lingering sweet grainy malts, some popcorn and sourdough. Pretty clean, with some bready dough, a touch of prickly carbonation. Some residual adjunctiness, but overall a clean Golden ale, light bodied with a touch of prickly carbonation. Simple yet sufficient

arkurzynski (1394) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2010
On tap at brewery. Nothing too exciting here. Typical blonde ale. Straw to gold in color. Pale malts dominate nose, with some floral hops. Flavor is malty and sweet with some very mild bitterness on the tail end.

JaBier (4528) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2010
Sample at the brewpub on 10/16/10. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Malty and corny nose with not much else going on. Flavor is malty with a bit of crisp hop.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2010
On tap at the brewery, pours a clear golden with a nice head and lacing. Nothing too special to it, just light and malty. Probably the best blonde ale I’ve had (compared to the sacrificial budllercoors beers of most brewpubs).

cbfobes (2152) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2010
On tap at brewery, pours clear yellow with little head, hardly no head to it at all, has very sweet flavor, nothing special but still better than other light beers!

drowland (5953) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2010
5/22/10. On tap at the brewpub in a pint glass. Pours cloudy off-yellow with a small white head. The aroma is very light - just a hint of cream and not much else. The flavor is corny and buttery, very caramelly for a blonde - possibly some diacetyl? Not great. Hopalicious, please!

tmoreau (2124) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Pint out on the patio. Poured a cloudy, straw tone, with average, white foam to the head, and some dots and dashes of lacing. The aroma was light yeast, grain, some lemon zest, and a slight nutty hint. The flavor was similar, with the grain and nuttiness giving off a light cereal taste. With average carbonation, and somewhat light body, this beer was decently quaffable.
