hopscotch (10076) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2008
(Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Schaumburg, IL) Draft... DLD’08... Clear light yellow ale with a large wispy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is of warm mash and earthy hops. Light-bodied and very effervescent. Like the aroma, the grainy flavor presents notes of lightly sweet mash and gentle, spicy, earthy hop bitterness. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter, and then dry.

Tasted on tap at the Fort Collins Horserooth location. Pours a clear, light yellow appearance. Very weak light malty aroma. Thin body with pale malts and light hops. Bitter taste and finish. Tastes a like a microbrew version of a Bud Light.

Dogbrick (9350) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2004
From a sampler at the Indy location: Called "Indy Blonde" at this locale. This is standard stuff here. Light golden color with a small fizzy head. Light hops aroma. Light and crisp body with a run-of-the-mill watery hops flavor. The finish is kind of weak too. Not really worth your time.

BMan1113VR (7902) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Had at Humperdinks on Greenville. Listed as Texas Blonde. Same appearance as the light. A bit more lacing maybe. No smell or taste really, very generic. Fizzy.

BVery (7891) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Tap at the Schaumburg IL location. For a simple accessible blonde for the masses at a chain brewpub, this does not suck like many do. Clear pale gold pour with no head. Fairly sweet grain aroma and taste. Crisp palate.
