2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(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.

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.

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.

On tap @ C.I. Shenanigans in Spokane. Medium gold, lacy white head. Nice light fruity hops and medium bitterness, clean grains. I was surprised to find that this beer gets clobbered in the ratings. I thought it was a nice, particularly for a style that is often so dull.
