badgerben (4394) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Yellow color with no head or aroma. The flavor has a little candy sugar quality, but other than that sweetness, itís all water.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Schaumburg. Translucent pale gold in color with a short creamy white overlay to serve as the head. Cinnamon sticks, lemon zest, potato chips and the flour dusting on potato bread come to mind for the aroma. Crisp lemon-pineapple flavor concoction. Fairly muted carbonation. Bittering sourdough crust. This is the prototypical brewpub blonde.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Pours a nice golden yellow. Aroma is cotton candy. Flavor starts sweet but finishes out with a nice sour hops tinge. Palate is thin. Overall, a good beer for a hot day.

Reid (1876) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2005
On tap at the pub. Salem ,Oregon. Its a pretty average looking Blonde ale...Slightly hazy golden colour with a smallish pure white head. Again the aroma is average, subdued yet pleasant enough..mostly a floral scent with some rough sugar. Taste is pretty thin..its well carbonated..the usual malt and small hop profile of a Blonde. Again its ok on the palate..though thin even for the style. All in all an average beer..but its ok to have something bland now and again

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2004
On tap at RAM, Schaumburg,IL: Nicknamed, "Chicago Blonde". Clear golden yellow with a hint of adjunct in the nose (even if there isnít actually any in there) and a slight hint of hops. Amazing lacing for a below average beer, some malt sweetness and a hint of bitterness at the finish.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 I would have thought I was drinking one of the better macro-lagers had I not watched the barmaid pour the drink. Yellow in color with lots of tight carbonation and a small fizzy white head, this had no discernable aroma. Itís got a sweet bready taste with a clean finish. A pint is not worth $4.00.

Bright fizzy yellow...no discernable odor...bubbly mouthfeel...crisp finish, frozen waffle aftertaste...the low carb is much better, surprisingly...

Draught: Light, sparkling, yellow. Average, lasting, creamy-frothy, white head. Good lacing. Straw and grainy malts. Doughy yeast and corn flavors. Light body and thin texture, with lively carbination and chalky finish. Gross.
