COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer has a good body and a nice head. This ale is golden in color, and drinks as smooth as a lager (we really tried not to say it...but had to add that this Blonde goes down easy)!

This one is amazing. I was shocked to find out that this is a Pilsner recipe brewed with an ale yeast giving the best of both worlds. For a warm day, when you need a refreshing drink...this one is your bet.

Loved this beer. Great golden color, crisp and clean. Plenty of body to satisfy your taste but easy enough to drink.

An odd one. Totally reminds me of 10 barrel’s Swill. That is, there’s a fruitiness in the flavor that is offputting, although not so much as in Swill (less sweet -- but still sweet -- here). Ultimately, I think they have a labeling issue -- this is not a blonde ale.

I bought this in a Haggen in Washington State and the beer department dude recommended it. It’s a great summer beer. Slightly malty, slightly cirtus and very refreshing

Disclaimer: I sell and make wine, and know only slightly more about beer than the average beer drinker.... Appearance: Cloudy, dark straw, creamy head. Aromatic: Started out with wet cement and lime leaf maybe some basil and Meyer lemon. Developed into vanillin and toasted almond notes. (Might be due to pouring into the same glass used to drink Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier just prior...) Taste: Lemon peel, subtle white flowers, mellow hops. Touch of raw bread dough. Delicious over steeped green tea finish. Palate: Med bodied. Crisp start, some wariness on finish. Definitely a beer I want to try again, this time in an unsmoked glass.

Lagerboy (1235) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Bomber. Golden straw, ridiculously huge snow white rocky creamy head no matter how soft the pour. Aroma of citrus and mild malts. Taste is lemon citrus, lightly sweet pale malt, a hint of honey, low bitterness. Lively carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Clean, crisp and dry, a refreshing sessional quencher. TLF (Totally Lagerboy Friendly)

Draft@AmEricanbrewingCo. Clear golden blonde color with white foam. Pungent tooty fruity hop, pale malt aromas. Medium bodied. Nice honey biscuit sweet malty flavors with a subtle floral hop nipple bite to finish --)>>good

maxwelldeux (3668) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle. Since I married and American Blonde, I’m drinking this one as my 2500th rating. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a very thick white head on it. Nose is decently spicy, I find, with just a hint at some banana in there as well. Taste is just a little sweet, and feels very light and smooth. Really nice easy drink for the summer.

Straw golden in color, clear with a thin head. Light hops and malt flavor. This was super easy drinking a hot day beer for sure.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle:   Dark straw, a bit cloudy, frothy white head, nice lacing.   Semi-sweet straw/hay, a little fruity on the pale fruit side.   Feels a bit wheaty on the tongue, otherwise it seems a little flat.   Clean tho.   Lingering wheatiness.   Makes a better American Wheat than a Golden Ale.   I remember my Goldens being brighter in color and more spunky.   This seemed like a real light American Wheat.   Needs to be a bit bubblier and brighter I think.   Otherwise okay.
