Leighton (10534) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2013
Cask at the brewpub - Great Barrington. Pours clear yellow with a fine, creamy white head. Cereal in the nose, hints of butter, some hay. Lightto medium sweet flavor with crispy cereal, straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, light doughy white bread, mild hay bitterness. Simple and drinkable.

Sampled at the brew pub. The pour was golden yellow with a big white head. Not cloudy. The aroma was alive with the kinds of esters I expect from a blonde including yeast and pale malts but there was also a wheat-like character. Overall mellow on the nose. The body was light, creamy, and refreshing. The taste has a likable roasty character with butter and biscuit and a light malt finish. Thin hops. Still, a beer I would pick again on a second visit.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear watery yellow with a creamy thick white head. Very little aroma, sweet wheat. Thin, empty, slightly sweet. Nothing really here in one way or another. Not offensive, but not memorable.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 7, 2009
From a draft pour at the Egremont Inn tavern in Egremont, MA this poured a clear yellow with a small head and light lacing. Mouthfeel is light and clean. Flavor is of caramel malts and floral hops. Finish is dry and lightly bitter.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of toast, biscuits, earth, some dough. Tastes of biscuits, some dry malt, some earthiness on the finish.

boto (1827) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Draught: This one pours a very pale yellow, and was crystal clear. There was very little head on it, but did leave a little lacing. The aroma was very weak. Slightly floral and fruity to the nose. The taste is OK, certainly not unpleasant but very pedestrian.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2007
Pours a cloudy, pale golden color with a thin white head. Average aroma and flavor of cereal and honey, it’s not very entertaining but makes for a decent quencher. The body is light and creamy with soft carbonation.

Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2007
Clear blonde body topped by a small white ring of foam. Yet another brewpub generic blonde ale, every brewpub has one, except that this one is actually quite drinkable for what it is. Lots of cereals and a gentle fruity touch. Low profile hops, appears like a little dry hopping. Smooth body and soft carbonation. Not quite recommendable to beer-geeks but the fact that this is their entry level beer speaks volume about the overall beer quality at this pub. As far as typical blondes are concerned this beer is like a typical blonde with an 85 IQ, above average in a relative manner.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Shared a sampler that had this in it. Smells like Pledge (the lemony furniture polish). TOo thin. Very light mouthfeel, yet it is very smooth. It had a pleasant grainy taste.

On tap at the Barrington Brewery. Very lemony arouna with a clear yellow color. Smoooooooth and velvety. Big malty burst in the long aftertaste.
