2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The orange color and initial whiff of citric hops made me thing at first this was going to be something of an APA rather than a blonde ale. The hop flavor quickly fades though and what I am left w/ is a relatively bland blond w/ a shot of butter popcorn flavoring for good measure. It’s oily texture and prickly carbonation hurt drinkability and all and all, this is just not a good beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle from Evergreen Discount. Blonde and clear with an off-white head. Mild floral, herbal aroma with light malts, citrus fruits and corn. Similar flavor, adding mild bitter hops. Crisp and pretty clean with a light metallic finish. Pretty bland.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy and strawy aroma with flat bitter hoppy overtones. Taste is slightly grainy, flat bitter hoppy overtones. If it was a German Pilsener, I’d call it "Kirmesbier"; simple, monotonous, without deepness, but very quaffable party stuff.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - gold with slim white head. Candy aroma, sweet malt, some tropical fruit. Sweet malty taste, very sweet, with some late light bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Not the best, but had worse.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer is sweet. Sweet nose and flavor. Light hops flavor. This beer is almost sugar water. Even with a lingering candy mouthfeel.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. Clear orange-golden with a lasting ring of bubbles. Nose is dry grass and toasted field corn. Flavor is honey, roasted feed corn and a finish of herbal-minty hops that almost rescues this mess. Light-medium body is too fizzy and starts too sweet but has an almost crisp finish that nearly makes you forget how bad it really began. The piss of Death’s Horse never tasted so sweet. Must be the corn.

Slightly cloudy golden orange, small head. smells...Oh, I don’t know. It’s an average golden ale. You’ve had better. You’ve had worse. Decent label, though...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours clear pale yellow, little white head. Cooked corn and wet cereal nose. Tastes the same, with some light citrus at the end. Not nice.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @tasting, pours yellow. Not a big nose but some vegetable (sweetcorn) and some grass. Metallic taste is the biggest thing on the palate, its the taste of blood on the back of your throat when you have a nose bled.
