2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
5oz sample from a flight. Pour is pale straw with just a touch of thin white head on top. Nose is a lightly bready malt and very light hops. Taste is similar to that but it comes off a bit sweeter than indicated by the nose. This brew is easy to drink and leaves no yuk face as I swallow, but there is not too much else to say about it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mostly water in the taste and finish. Light taste of grains and straw. Pale lager aroma. Not much at all, I can’t believe this is 6%.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pale yellow gold; nothing spectacular but a nice white head and decent lacing. Smell has a pale base with a nice, refreshing amount of floral hops--always nice in a blonde ale, which is all too often something that is just completely generic. This reminded me a little bit of the magnificent Sierra Nevada 22 Bines that I had last year. A nice floral hoppiness--albeit light hoppiness--is most of what comes through in the flavor department, leading to an exceedingly drinkable light brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale straw coloured pour. Thin white head. The nose is lightly spicy. Clean and a little bit biscuity with a soft spicy/lemony malt character. Lean body along with a kiss of tartness. Softly fruity and spicy with a soft lingering crackery finish. Very dry finish. Pretty solid.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is toasted malt, earthy, grassy. The appearance is clear yellow, white head. The flavor is again toated malts, more grassy, malty, and some noble hop bittering. Noble hops in the finish as well. Thin to medium in body. Ok for what it is.

On tap at Bullfrog. Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Soft grain and biscuits. Sweet and grainy, a little skunkiness. Basic brewpub blonde, just not as horrible as most. Long quinine finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub 6/8/08: Pours a transparent pale golden with a wispy-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale malts with some grainy character and a hint of citrusy hops. Body starts lightly sweet, creamy and smooth with a mild crisp earthy hoppy bitterness toward the finish. A pretty decent Kölsch.
