MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Generous honeyed cereals pleasantly lift leafy hops in this chewy and well-balanced Golden Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy dark golden.
-The relaxed bubbling and well-rounded body make for a pleasant mouthfeel.
-The finishing hop bitterness is also earthy.
-The end result is clean and very drinkable, which was its main aim, I imagine.

Bottle.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 14, 2008
12oz brown bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours a slightly hazy straw-yellow body with a very thin film of off-white head that doesn’t stay long. Smells malty sweet and fruity, reminiscent of honey with a slight grassy hops. Tastes malty biscuity sweet at first, with a fair bit of fruitiness and a strong leafy-grassy hop presence toward the finish. The hops seem to add a grassy astringency to the beer, to a small extent, hurting the drinkability slightly. Otherwise a flavorful drinkable blonde, among the best I’ve had of the style and probably my favorite offering from this brewery.

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Draught. Orangey-gold with small head. Fruity hop with orange predominant. Fresh grain. Immature orchard fruits and some undercooked elements. Lots of trees and leaves. Dash of salt. Thin. Alright.

eaglefan538 (2857) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Bottle courtesy bfeld. Pour was hazy golden-straw in color, white head, respectable size and decent lacing for the style. The aroma was wheaty, herbal hoppy. The flavor was herbal hoppy with a wheaty base, faint fruity esters, a bit of twang/bite in the finish, which was pretty clean. Not the most exciting style in the world, but for a light blonde ale, not bad.

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Poured a cloudy orange color with small head. Aroma was of citrus/lemons yeast and some sweet malts. Flavor was of tart lemons and a hit of sweet malts funky yeastyness. refreshing beer but nothing amazing. Not bad for summer time.

jimhilt (2389) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Pours a white, two-finger head that goes slowly leaving a good lace. Clear light amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Nose is hoppy. Starts hoppy, finishes hoppy, bitter aftertaste; more like a pale than a summer. $1.37 for a 12oz bottle from Downeast Liquors Portland, Me.
