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.

Hoppy aroma with a clear amber hue. It has a very light and refreshing taste that stands a bit in opposition to its hoppy smell. Very light malt overtones and a clean finish. Easy and refreshing. The type of beer one can enjoy in multiples on a hot balmy day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

More copper than golden. Head that disappears to a long lasting lacing. Light grassy smell with bread. Crisp, mild hops, but no real taste. Slightly watery. Maybe good for a hot day, but for a cold winter day, it leaves a lot to be desired.

jbruner (3534) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Pours a hazy yellow on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma and taste of resinous grassy and citrus hops, slight bready grain. Really more of a session IPA to me than golden ale.

From a bottle poured in an English Pint glass - someone left this at my house after a party. Thin dry beer with considerable hoppiness. Not a hop bomb, but not enough depth of flavor to accompany the hops. One note. An "IPA Lite". I would call this a Session Ale rather than a Golden Ale/Blond since it pours more Bronze than Gold and is low ABV.

By Deschutes standards, a decent beer but nothing exceptional. Bready and crisp at the end. Nice clean finish.

madchemist83 (220) - USA - SEP 11, 2015
Very little to none hop aroma. Clear copper with very small head that dissapears in a jiffy. Light, refreshing, balanced well but missing hops. Little grassy aftertaste. Instead of making good summer beer Deschutes went Blue Moon route. Dissapointing.

Served on tap. Pored golden amber, medium thin head up front but didn't last. Slight grassy aroma, some fruitiness. Easy to drink, mild hops, fruit taste was more pitted fruit than citrus. Lacing evident but minimal. Overall very good, this beer does exactly what it is meant to do for a blonde ale.
