COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This handcrafted brew is our most popular beer. Could it be the mild hop character and smooth drinkability that brings people back? The light color and medium body? The name?

reberiii (477) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 Simple and crisp, this blonde ale pours from a 12oz. bottle with a lighter foam. Well rounded, yet unremarkable.

joejames (454) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2016
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear golden, one finger off white head. Some lacing with some retention. Aroma of caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, slight bitterness. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, mouth feel is a little thin. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of grass, caramel, light citrus and honey. Average.

scarletfire65 (1272) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle at Ernest and Young Tap Room in Wilmington DE. Almost absent aroma of spent grain. The flavor is grainy, corny, lightly sweet malts, grassy hop finish with no character. Generic ale. The latest in a string of average to bad localish beers on this trip.

LinusStick (3135) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2015
In reading the commercial deScription, there’s no way this is their most popular beer. In truth, I think this is the worst beer I’ve had from them. Aroma was malty with caramel and not much else. Pour was a nice medium hazy gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was too malty and heavy for a blond ale. Thin and watery in the front with a caramel finish. Not much hops to speak of other than a slight bitterness left in the mouth after the swallow. Decent carbonation. Disappointing

Bottle from SJ. some citrus, bread, grass and honey.. Body was thin, but overall the brew was interesting.

Some straw and a little barley. Crisp finish. Pours golden amber with OK head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Easy drinking. Tap at BWI brewpub.

Beerdedone (3156) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of grains, grass and pale malts. Flavor was grainy with light caramel, grass, yeast and had a touch of citrus.

JStax (4537) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle pour into a brandy snifter. Pours a clear copper with a white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has astringent grainy bitterness. Taste is grainy and sweet. Some corny notes in the finish. High carbonation. Light body. Not great.

raymow (1290) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
on tap at Chickie’s & Pete’s at Parx - not bad but also nothing special. A good drinkable session beer (with a good name) but lacking in flavor.

pineypower (2956) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours out well...go figure, blonde with a small white head. Aroma is of citrus zest, sweet grainy malts, and stale bread. Taste is of old, wet cardboard, straw, mild bitterness, sweet bready malts. Smooth and drinkable, but nothing crazy.
