On the light side, but fairly clean. Has markings of a session beer if you’re looking for something refreshing. Finishes off a little sour.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours pale golden with small fizzy head. Grainy with a strong caramel sweetness. Malty flavor, but kind of skunky. Not very crisp and sort of muttled. Hoped for a blonde to be a little more refreshing.

My Bottom Line:
Toasted and caramelized cereals overcome the herbal hops and their bitterness in this easygoing Blonde Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the nearly clear gold.
-While the first half of the sip is pretty sweet, the second half can be said to be well dried out.
-Once again, the nose is very timid and not enticing.
-All of their beers had a level of sweetness that is not necessary in session ales of the sort they brew.
On tap at the brewpub.

The best thing about this beer is its amusing commercial description. The beer itself is unremarkable and weak. I do like the toasted quality, although it’s merely a hint. You get a lot of it in the first taste, but as you have more it disappears. There is no complexity to this beer--much like all the beers to come out of this brewery. I am disappointed.
