2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can at a restaurant. Pours clear fizzy and solid gold. Lively carbonation, crisp, decently strong malt backbone. Almost no discernable hops. Decent summer beer, a little too far on the bland side.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Pretty clear yellow, white thin cream. Oddly fruity aroma. Slight sour and cooling, not great.

Growler. A yellow beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, grain, and straw, leading to a sweet finish. Boring compared to other Cape Cod beers.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Slightly hazy body, tiny white head. The aroma is yeast, wood and very faded. The taste is light, with strong yeasts. Not so much of a blond ale and more of a hefe. Weird.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at a Cooke’s, 8/11/2015
Clear blonde color. Fizzy. Light, malty aroma. Lightly sweet. Tastes of malt and macro lager adjuncts, which is odd for a craft blonde ale. Feels kinda watery and fizzy. Not terrible I guess, but not a very good beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4 pack of fresh 16oz cans drunk Winter ’14-’15.
Nothin like a beach blonde ale in the heart of Winter, I always say (I actually don’t). Actually a slight haze to this otherwise pencil yellow beer with a moderate amount of foamy white head.
Quite grainy in the nose with just a touch of perfumey-like floral hoppiness, but mostly earthy, dry-herbal hops and light corn and vanilla (wouldnt say DMS). Minerals, no alcohol.
A mouthful of sweet honey up front is stretched out over the mostly lean body as carbonation distributes it more evenly. Light toasted character has some mildly husky/grainy quality to it with heavy fruitiness. Perhaps a slight hint of diacetyl or DMS even, but it’s minor at best. Drinkable and with enough body and crispness on the end to satisfy.

Pours a dark amber from a can, aroma nice light maltiness, good refreshing beer with nice flavor without being heavy, a good post-beach beer.

Can at my sister’s a souvenir from her trip to the US. It has a solid fruity aroma with light cracker notes. Flatbread maltiness, a bit of honey, light fruits a nice satisfying well made blonde.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a slight golden yellow color with streams of carbonation to be seen rising through the beer. Bar pour yielded a film of a white head. Barely any lacing stuck around the glass.
The smell had a sweet corn with some light toasted caramel notes.
The taste was pretty much the same.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and to me. There’s a decent smoothness running over my tongue.
Overall, good blonde ale I could probably pound on a Cape Cod beach.

On tap at the brewery. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Light banana and clove bouquet. Mild hops, bread, corn, yeast notes. Average body and mouthfeel.
