It is designed to attract the beginning micro beer drinker. The addition of Willamette and Cascade hops gives this ale a crisp, clean character that is not challenging to a novice. This beer is enjoyed by experienced micro drinkers because of its character.

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.

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.

"gotta go against the grain here. rarely if ever will i give a blonde a super high score, but if it scores anywhere near the "better" bigger styles, that’s a plus, and I thought that (for a blonde) this beer was quite good. crisp, with a nice cascade hop finish. everything but the thin feel was above average." two years later i see what all the negativity is about. totally different beer. 2.2-3.2. sigh...

Ughsmash (7408) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2007
On tap at Ram - Wheeling, IL as "Chicago Blonde". Poured a clear, very bright golden with a short white head... dusting and a ring. Aroma was light and bready with an aire of lemon.. solid for the style. Flavor had an almost tangy bready base with hints of lemon and some herbal bitterness.. light and pleasant. Light-bodied.. a bit dry on the back half and quite refreshing.

Had as Humperdinks Texas Blonde.. On Draft in Dallas .. . light and refreshing and it has the taste to back it up .. . light grains and hay, very tasty .. . a great summer brew, i quite enjoyed it .. . Would Willie’s fence-mending eggs bear fruit? Or would his olive branch be torn apart by woodpeckers of mistrust?

Had this on tap awhile back at the Indianapolis brewpub. All I had written down was "weak!"

Ernest (6838) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2002
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium yellow, moderate density of small particles. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

after4ever (6817) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Draft at the Tacoma Waterfront location. Crystal clear medium straw. No head, no lace, no carb. Musty, sweaty nose. Flat, watery body. Stale corn and sweat on the mid-palate. Neutral finish. In no way exciting.
