Transfer from BA review on 2-10-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance- Pours a nice clear golden amber color with hints of orange within and tons of carbonation bubbles rushing up through the body of the brew. Upon pouring there is a one finger white head that fades relatively quickly leaving only a tiny amount of lacing. Smell- The aroma is quite sweet in nature consisting largely of a caramel smell. Beyond this aroma there is a very light corn smell as well as some light notes of orange. Taste – The taste begins bready and sweet with flavors of citrus mixed within. The bready flavors are a mix of wheat bread and malt with the sweet being a blend of orange and caramel. The flavors of the brew remain relatively consistent throughout the taste with the caramel fading a bit and more citrus taking its place. In the end a sweeter malty and citrus flavor are left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite light in its creaminess with a carbonation level that is average to just above. The carbonation and thinner body are quite nice for the largely sweeter flavors of the brew and suit it quite well to make for an easy drinking beer. Overall –A rather refreshing, but maybe a little too sweet brew. If you are looking for something rather smooth and crisp with a moderate citrus and malt taste and a good deal of sweetness then this is a good choice.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a slight transparency about it to allow a light carbonation seen rising. The head was a finger’s worth of white foaminess that dissipated within about thirty seconds. There was some light lacing sliding into the beer. The smell had some citrusy sweet to tart flavors of orange and lemon. In the background, light honey came to balance. The taste was mainly sweet but had a decent tart lemon also letting in a decent bitterness. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but not too much. Overall, decent blonde ale that I might not go out of my way to have again but probably wouldn’t deny one either.

Bottle. Pours a very clear amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is very light - I can get faint whiffs of citrus and wheat off of it, but there isn’t much to it. Taste is a little sweet with the taste and feel of a wheat beer, but not much flavor to it. Whatever...

12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden color with a thin white head that fades. Taste is of malt, citrus, caramel, wheat, orange and lemon. Similar, clean aroma. Has a decent body that finishes clean. Refreshing, easy to drink and rather enjoyable.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of lakewater and light citrus...hmmm. taste is light sweet. Sugarwater, dank wheat and a little citrus. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation but not much of a finish. Overall meh. Doesn’t taste like any blondes ive had before.

Not a whole lot of fruit in the aroma for having lemon and orange, but thankfully, both in the body and the aroma there is more orange than lemon. Overall, I thought this was a pretty drinkable golden ale. Seems a bit underrated to me - may be the Coors effect.
