COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here’s one that’s clean and refreshing enough for the long haul, but fully graced with hop aroma, malt heft and clear craft passion. Sit back, relax, and let the subtle pleasures reveal.

Hops: Cascade, Crystal, Nugget. Malt: Pale, Munich, Carapils, Crystal. 28 IBU. Best by date: 02.25.14. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 01.20.14. A: Nice lacing. Orange/yellow. Some opaqueness. S: Orange, spice. T: Flower, lemon, biscuit. Citrusy. M: Crisp. Nicely carbonated. O: This is super easy to drink and it has excellent balance. It’s much more complex than other blondes probably because it’s so hop forward. I liked it.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Golden/orange in color. Light citric hoppy nose. Somewhat subdued hoppy flavors. Strong bready malt backbone dominates. Pretty easy sippin’ Nice lighter beer with some pretty good flavor.

beersammich (71) - Morgantown, West Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Pours dark golden in color with a small light head. Smells malty, mildly hoppy and of some fruit. Taste is mildly malty, hoppy, and also some small fruit. A small bitter finish. A decent beer. I had from a bottle.

dlihcsnatas (464) - Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Slightly hazy dark golden brew with decent head. Smells of citrus like a cleaning product and tastes like a lemon lime kind of drink. Other than the massive citrus hops there is not much else going on for this one. Too thin a body, too hoppy for chugging, low ABV so can’t get hammered on them. Nope just not seeing much to make me want more of this brew.

kevinator (1433) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2015
This a very average beer for me. Faint aroma of hops and pale malt. Normal golden color with a white fizzy head. Light palate with strong carbonation. Light malt flavor in the background with a slight hop presence and a sharp finish. Decent with food.

DialSquare (3522) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2015
12oz bottle from Kroger in Grandview. Orange gold pour with a thin white head and sudsy retention. Aroma of pine, herbal, apple. Tastes of resiny citrus, tropical fruit, grass, caramel. Pretty straightforward, but nice enough.

VeinAle (123) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2015
From variety pack. Mild peak of grass and hop, earthiness and citrus. I probably wouldn’t pick this out directly. Not bad for a blonde.

gregwilsonstl (1438) - Missouri, USA - DEC 30, 2014
light hazy amber copper. Kinda dark for a golden ale. Nice hop body. All around balanced brew. Reminds me more of a session ipa than a golden ale. I’d drink this regularly.
