On tap at the Interquest location. Pale yellow color, with a big, foamy, white head. The nose is honeydew, butterscotch, and a bit of white bread. Sweet and creamy, with a nice, light touch of bitterness. Light body, crisp, creamy and clean. This is a really nice blonde, with great balance and mellow, drinkable flavor.

Tasted on tap at Colorado Mountain Brewery. Fairly translucent, light yellow appearance. Just a slight bit golden malts in the aroma. This is actually a blonde/golden ale. Light golden malty body and not lacking in body like some goldens.
