2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at RAM, Schaumburg,IL: Nicknamed, "Chicago Blonde". Clear golden yellow with a hint of adjunct in the nose (even if there isn’t 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.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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. It’s got a sweet bready taste with a clean finish. A pint is not worth $4.00.
