3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at PDX pub. Described as a "Golden Ale", but that option wasn’t available here, so closest I could come was Blonde. It was not done with Belgian yeast in case you’re wondering.
Nice polished copper with a rim of white foam. Smells of light, sweet English malts and a slightly tea like hop character. Flavor is mildly bitter with a good hit of amber malts. Medium bodied with lower carb and slick finish. This reminded me of a lighter, but fuller flavored Amber, not a Golden or Blonde Ale, but hey whatever. I really dug this one.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap @ the brewpub in Bend. Medium golden, scant white crown. Aroma is lightly sweet pale malts with fruit and grass notes. Simple profile of pale malts and lightly fruity/grassy hops, relatively low bitterness. Decent, simple summer session style.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampler glass at PDX Brewery & Pubic House. Minimal aroma, some yeast and a bit of sweet malt. Pale copper color. Smooth, light candyish malt initial flavor; very mild mid palate; finish fades so quickly. Medium-thin body. Okay. Moderately pleasant but unremarkable stuff.

Gold pour, simple, refreshing, well balanced and easy drinking. A nice light ale with some good flavor for the style. Good stuff.
