mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Cityfresh Associated Supermarket, Bushwick growler ($8): Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is hops and grains. Taste is a little bitter, but the flavor and the hop profile were a bit flat. This beer is a little boring, but I guess that blonde ales are often a bit flat and boring.

glennmastrange (2287) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Tap. Light to moderate grain for the malt, perfume and flowers for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of peach and paper. Head is small, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and light to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Not much double in this American Strong Ale but a pretty nice refreshing beer overall.

tgncc (2830) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2013
The aroma is cereal grains, somewhat unpleasant. The appearance is old in color, clear, white head. The flavor is cereal grains, light malt sweetness, ok overall. The finish is light noble hops. Not a great beer. Ok overall.

trapped (823) - New York City, TURKEY - JUL 5, 2013
Drought. Clear yellow with foamy off-white head, slight hops aroma, sweetish taste with little hops flavor, low carbonation, abrupt finish. Good with spicy food but not much else.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2013
11 ounce pour - $6.25 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Lightly hazed, golden body with a very thin, white head.

Smell: Somewhat deficient aroma, only smelling very lightly of grain, white bread sans crust, distant wildflower honey, and florals.

Taste: Light pale maltiness, a tad grainy, with a golden syrup/soft honeyed sweetness. Lightly floral hop quality with a minor spiciness. Relatively light bitterness. The sweetness soon fades for a mostly dry, smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A bigger blonde without becoming so double-fied or imperialized that itís a cloying, gloopy mess.

j12601 (6607) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2011
On tap at Birdsall House. Pours a lightly hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Sweet candy and grain, floral candy. Floral and sweet, lightly grainy. Smooth, light caramel, a touch empty. Big grainy bitterness, smooth overall and decent enough.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2010
On tap at Lazy Boy. Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma and flavor is mostly grain with some floral hop and citrus notes. Pretty easy drinking. Didnít think the ABV would be this high.

BREWMUSKCLES (2257) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2010
interesting to enjoy a blond that is powered up with hops and an alcohol that is amped as well but still not apparant. the brew looks golden pale and really beer geeks (like me) could tell what was going on by looking at it. the brew has a light bar soap taste and finish with wheat and is chalky as well as refreshing. the lye like soap flavor competes with that blonde ale character of deepness and in the end leaves me just a little short with vegetable and sweetness.

beerbill (3450) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Pours a somewhat darkened hazed gold with a moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of malt along with some very light fruit. The flavor is similar and is again mostly malt with some light fruit flavor and sweetness. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Not all that exciting, but no problems either.

on tap-pours a rich white head and yellow/gold color. Aroma is sweet light malt, spice hops. Taste is sweet light malt, spice/perfumy hops.
