A straight forward lighter bodied ale, our Blonde was brewed for the Summertime. It has a well rounded softness with a crisp, cleansing finish.

Tap @ brewpub. Hazy yellow pour with a white foam slick. Light sweetness and grain in the aroma with more of the same in the taste. Some minimal bitterness as well. Light mouthfeel. Okay.

fiulijn (14549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy blond color; small creamy head. Light malt aroma and flavor; it’s also a bit buttery (diacetyl); light fruitiness and average bitterness.
It’s a simple Ale with minor flaws.

Ferris (4162) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
Draft - Grain, hay and citrus/pineapple on the nose. Cloudy yellow with minimal head. Refreshing and light with a celery and resin hop taste with the hay. A light yeast flavour can also be found. Nice on a hot day if you are looking for something light.

mcberko (6439) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
6 oz. sample on tap at the brewpub, pours a cloudy blond with a small white head. Aroma is very light, with grains, light Belgian yeast, subtle dry zesty qualities. Flavour is yeasty and spicy, with bready malts, quite spicy hops and some yeast. Decent for the style, but expectedly bland.

SHIG (3586) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 17, 2012

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - FEB 6, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Cloudy pale yellow with a thin white head. Light vegetable aroma. Thin body but decent mouthfeel. Taste a little like carrots. Not bad for a light ale.

manuchampions (1237) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2010
Sample at the brewpub in Bellingham. A bright golden in the glass with thin white head. Aroma is crisp with decent hops. Taste is surprisingly satisfying. There is depth here to the palate, good hop bite, fresh, larger taste than I expected. All in all a great Vienna style lager.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Hazy blonde with flimsy head. Faintly hopped nose with some malt twingling. Fresh, clean graininess in the body and crisp hop flavor. Medium-bodied with a citrusy twang. A nice blonde.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 13, 2009
A: Poured at Boundary Bay brewpub. Head was small and white, but left at least fair lacing on the glass. Body is quite hazy and a dark yellow/orange color. S: Aroma is a little weak, but average malts come through in the form of a bread smell, as well as light hops for a nice balance. T: Malty breadiness, and some buttery diacetyl as well, with a lightly hoppy finish. Not a blow-out Blonde, but still pretty tasty overall, and smooth. M: Medium-bodied and creamy, with average carbonation. D: Extremely easy to drink, a Blonde with some Pacific Northwest character. Hard to be really outstanding in this category, but I think Boundary Bay has done a pretty good job with this one.
