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 (2290) - Quad Cities, Iowa, 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 (5998) - 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 (2380) - 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.

dmschefke (568) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Bottle thanks to Drfabulous. Pours a typical blonde with thick white head. Aroma of biscuit, slight malt, and ever so slight hops. Flavor matches and finishes clean and refreshing. Nothing special, very drinkable. Cool.

notalush (4839) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2009
A nice crisp blonde ale, with lean, crackery malts, and an assertive hop bite on the back end - a little bready through the middle, but mostly clean and refreshing, with a nice peppery kick to it - finishes dry - there are a lot of people hating on this beer, but I really liked it.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Hazy gold body with a small short-lived white head. Honey aroma. Biscuit on the first sip, but only the first sip. Mostly built around sour mashy flavors, a little bit of nut, a little vanilla. Lively mouthfeel.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2008
(Draught) Pours a hazy yellow body with a small egg-white head. Aroma of lemon zest, grain, and grass. Flavor of hop (grassy, citric) and lightly toasted grain.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 13/20
Strykzone (4913) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2008
A nice honey golden beer with a one finger white head that ends in a thin layer and thicker ring. Semi opaque. A sweet caramel malt aroma is balanced by tart hops. Some honey, lemon, and yeast go along with the caramel and hops. A zesty feel. Enjoyable but unexciting.
