An orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is light citrus and grain. The flavor is fruity hops with bitterness and some sweetness.

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is hoppier than I expected, with just a little bit of citrus grapefruit on top of some banana notes. Taste is extremely light and only a very faint hint of sourness in there. Pretty crisp and drinkable.

Hop_Hedonist (258) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2013
Nice quaffer - no high octane hop hit but still great flavour for low abv - the Aussie goldens like Stone and Wood/Nail have such great hoppiness.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Growler, brought to Christmas dinner by my bro-in-law. Medium yellow, slightly hazy, generous head indicating growler freshness. Light biscuity malts and delicate floral hops, very refreshing and balanced. A terrific lower ABV brew.

fiulijn (15249) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Cloudy deep blond color with compact head. Malt and fruity hops aroma, delicate, nice. Dry mouthfeel, not too weak, with toffee malt flavor, reasonable bitterness, and very nice soft hop resins, also some hop fruitiness.
At this gravity, a real pleasure; well brewed, balanced, fresh.

VastActiv (3072) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Tap at Deschutes, Portland. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, low hops and low malts. Fresh, enjoyably but watery.

pdx77 (1443) - Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2013
From bottle. Fizzy, light golden in color. Aroma is light sweet malt and a hint of citrus hop. Taste is sweet honey, biscuit malt, and a little bit of grassy hop bitterness. Not too exciting, but a nice refreshing golden nonetheless.

bulldogops (1108) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 24, 2013
Wasnít super excited about a milder ale from Deschutes, but the Bend has yet to let me down. 8 oz pour at Beer Revolution. Pale golden pour with a white head. Aroma is mild floral, lemon zest, pastry dough. Mild hoppy bitterness on the palate, very light malty softness. Light done right - an impeccable balance for a light fluffy blonde ale.

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Best by 13JUN13 Golden, clear, nice solid creamy foam. Smells floral, some grain, hint of hay. Taste is a little bitter, a little corn, a bit of herbal hops. Light bodied with lower carb and a semi dry finish. Meh, needs a little more oomph if you ask me.

DiarmaidBHK (3538) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle from Pizza Port Bottle Shop. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not a ton going on on the nose. thereís some kind of lemon thing on the tongue. Kind of watery in the finish. Thereís not a lot of carbonation here. Itís almost flat. Iím usually very impressed with Deschutes but Iím not feeling this one.
