Aubrey (3488) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Golden-orange in color. Very crisp, light and lively on the palate. Sweet - but light - malt base. Aromatic and flowery hops were nice. Mild bitterness in the clean and dry finish. Not overwhelming with flavor, but easy to drink.

Gription79 (2608) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Draft at the brewery. The aroma is subtle, the malts are all I can detect. The flavor is bready, there is a soft sweet maltiness. Very little hop character. Beer is clean.

Draught at the Bend Brewing Co, Bend, OR.
Clear golden colour with small white head. A weak aroma of sweet malt. Mild hoppy flavour with some fruity notes. Unimaginative.

"It has a lot of hop flavor and aroma without being excessively bitter." Ummmm, no. I can’t see this as a pale ale, as it even underhopped and really boring...for a blonde/golden. Not understanding the hype I’d heard about this place. Color by numbers beers at best.

maekchu (2726) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 17, 2013
Draught at the Bend Brewery Co. brewpub in Bend, OR. Very light grassy aroma. Pretty clear medium straw color. Mild sweet maltiness / a little bit buttery in mid (diacetyl?) / finish is smooth and minimally flavored. Thin body. Not bad, but not very inspired either.

Theydon_Bois (12680) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2013
Tap at Bend Brewing, Bend, 23/05/13. Clear golden with a thin white head. Nose is pale malts, light citrus, caramel, summer fruits. Taste comprises light malt, lemon, caramel, vague hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonatin, crisp finish. Refreshing APA but a little bland and not much in the way of hops.

Dogbrick (9425) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Mostly clear golden color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and bready malt. Light body with flavors of grassy hops, malt and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Just average overall.
