2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I expect a Blonde to be on the lighter side leaning more toward a lager or pilsner in taste with an ale style body. This was far more hoppy than I was expecting - even hoppier than their pale ale. It was actually pretty bitter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a slight golden orange color. 2 fingers of creamy white head.
S - Grassy hops, pears, biscuity yeast, lemons.
T - Bitter grassy and floral hops off the start. Grainy phenolic band aid flavor. Lemony yeast. Very faint malt peeking out. The finish is dry with an aftertaste of grassy hops and slightly citrus.
This is a hop intensive blonde. In fact it’s a little unbalanced. The bold hops are welcomed upfront. It carries through but steps on everything else. The slight malt is not enough to hold up to the amount of hops. Having said that I still like it. Mouthfeel is spot on.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of bread and grains with a hint of sweetness and a bit of grassy hops. Flavor begins with more crisp grassy hops with a nice backbone of light grain and bread.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle $6. Golden color just as you would expect given the name. Decent hop aroma but not hoppy like say an IPA or pale ale. The flavor was really well done, hard to describe but tasty, a bit of hops, just really well rounded. I have been pretty impressed by Cisco beers and look forward to trying to more.

Draft. Blonde cloudy hazy color with lemon and bread with hops. Very well balanced but more like a blonde iPa in my opinion

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty aroma has a yeasty overtone and a hint of pomme fruit. It pours a pretty clear golden amber with a thick and rather persistent white head. Flavor has a malty core plus tones of fruit and hoppy bitterness and a bready hint. Texture has average body and average fizz, but when the mouthfeel is the weakest point that ain’t too shabby. Named for a Labrador retriever? This beer is no, ahem, dog.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Misty, maple gold with a thin, frogs’ eggs bubbly head. Good label. The aroma was strangely appealing for a wheat beer - nothing really stood out that much, but the overall effect was pleasant - light diacetyl, moderate sweetness and light western hops. Grassy, lemon rind/pith bitterness, a little salt, dry. A little toffee and herb in the high palate. Medium body, pretty crisp, great beer for a 100° day. New Leaf Market - ask for Willow, she’ll get you a six.
