GABF. Gold pour, white head. Typical crisp blonde. Very faint hops, light toasted grain. Nothing incredible, but very clean and nothing offensive.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft @ brewpub. I’m pretty sure this is a lager, not a blonde ale. Has a pale clear hay color with hardly any aroma except maybe some sweet malts. Really watery and thin. Has almost no flavor, like a light beer or diluted beer. Tastes like wash :(

Straw. Big bubbles. Doesn’t look good. Slightly grainy aroma with mild continental hop. Mild bitterness. Herbal hops are also a bit cheesy. Typical bland blonde ale.

Sample at GABF. Server called it a lager? Clear light yellow with average white head. Aroma of cereal malt with some floral hops. Light and clean taste. Just O.K.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Who listed this as an ale? - this is a friggin’ pils - anyway, tap at the downtown location - fairly clean, with a light honey sweetness to it - fairly smooth - medium-bodied - some peppery noble hops - a kind of metallic character that I noticed in all of their lighter beers - okay, I guess.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampler at the brewery.Pours a thin head, over a pale (SRM 2) yellow clear body....nose is very light malts (slight cereal)......taste is very light pils type malt, flavor almost non existent finish is rather too bitter for the light malt. This needed a lot more on the malt (yes it is a lighter style) to balance out.
