3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent fuller orange with foamy off-white head and lively carbonation. Smells of dough and coriander with mild notes of hops and citrus. Tastes like it smells with a fairly dry mouthfeel. Alright.

On tap at Brewery. Golden, thick body. Strong yeast on end for this one. Not amazing, but solid.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Tap: copper and amber body with a thin, white head that skims the top of the beer and is gone completely within a few moments. No lacing, no webbing. Aroma is herbal lemongrass, lemon zest, citrus spritz, orange zest, and some green tea leaves. A little bit of spice, too, almost like mint or clove. Taste is sweet up front with a decent balance of herbal-like hops, lemongrass, coriander, orange zest, and mild clove... Finishing touch of lemon and mild bubblegum... almost like Belgian yeast? Thin mouth feel makes it feel a little watery, not enough carbonation. Flavors are pretty good, just too light. Amped up a bit, this would be pretty damn good. It’s decent as is.

bottle. Golden with small head. I don’t know if this is a blonde, but whatever. It’s light on flavor. Very light tartness and vaguely fruity. Eh.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
19 aug 2013, bottle. Orange/brown and a bit hazy. Odd for what bills itself as a blonde. Nose reminds me of unpasteurized apple cider. This can't be good. Thin body and fizzy. Well, wasn't as bad as I expected. Astringent malt, faint apple peel. Still not good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank from a bottle. Lacks a distinct flavor and does little to elevate itself from the likes of Budweiser and Miller.

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured an orangish-amber with a white frothy head. Abrupt bitter taste with a bitter finish.
