COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style light lager that anyone can enjoy. Light taste on the palate and designed to please a person tired of the light flavor of a big commercial product beer. From the entry level craft of beer drinker to someone looking for a really refreshing beer, our Blonde lager fits the bill.

Had on tap at brewpub in Frederick, MD, 2/26/12. Pours a light straw color, thin head, small amount of lacing. Not much aroma, a little grassy hops maybe. Thin body with the flavors of grassy hops and some nice malt nuttiness. Finish was hops. Pretty decent blonde ale.

Wife ordered this so I grabbed a few sips. Pale yellow color with thin white head. Aroma of straw, very light malt and some light citrus hops. Taste pale malt sweetness with a touch of grassy hops. Light body and medium carbonation. Decent.

Draft. Pours clear, pale yellow with thin fizzy head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is straw, light malt, and light citrus. Flavor is sweet malt and straw; not much there. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

Wow, a light lager! It tastes like Grain Belt Premium, except lighter somehow. Pale yellow, no real scent, watery. Not offensive, but not good.

Draft at the source. Extremely pale yellow, small white edge head. Aroma of black pepper. Taste is very bitter. Plain.

strongpieman (1477) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Draft pint at restaurant. Yellow color, tall head that sticks around more than most lagers. No skunkiness, which is key for me and lagers. A little smoother and thicker. Taste is mild, but as expected for this type. All around, I though this was okay and would have again in the right circumstance.

Block (1342) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Pretty light. Not too great. Grassy and not much better than the big commercial beer the description compares it to.

Drake (8322) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Served on draft at the brewpub, 1/8/11. Pours a very pale yellow with nearly no head. What’s there fades quickly. Faint grainy aroma. The taste is grassy hops, grain and a sweet malty finish. Thin body.

BeerandBlues2 (9596) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Tap. Pours clear gold with a spare, fizzy white head, low retention and flat. Aroma is heavy malt (grainy, meal, cereal), light hops (spicy), and light esters (fruity) with notes of corn. Flavor is heavy malt (grainy, meal, cereal), light hops (spicy), and light esters (fruity) with notes of corn. Light body, low warmth and creaminess, medium carbonation with a dry finish.

ben4321 (3859) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Location: On tap at the Brew Pub, 9/5/09

Aroma: Grain, light fruit, apple/pear, straw
Appearance: Clear blonde color, very light
Flavor: Light flavor, but tasty, good fruity/grainy character, and mild hop character as well
Palate: Clean and thin, light body
Overall Impression: This beer was OK, had a decent amount of flavor for the style, my qualm with it would be that I found it to be thin and light, but other then that it was pretty decent, not a great beer, but drinkable.
