COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our lightest beer . A great organic beer. With an exceptionally crisp palate, this ale balances the light malt palate with a subtle bitterness. This ale is an ideal beer for those unaccustomed to micro-brewed beers. Made with pale, wheat, carastan and carapils malts. Hopped with Cascade, Saaz and Tettnang hops. Made with pride and great taste from the worlds first certified organic brewery.

Very light beer. Serves it purpose: ale that is an ideal beer for those unaccustomed to micro-brewed beers. But Nothing special for those into micobrews!

Undistinguished but generally pleasing. Unusual for a blond, slightly more bite. Mom Jeans of blonds.

Draught. Aromas of sweetish malts, grains and sticky grapes. Dusky ginger beer colour with a limp head. Not so lively, nor it is particularly smooth. Dist like the palate much. The flavours, however, pretty well balanced and nuanced. Some fruit alongside the light malt, touch of caramel. Easy drinking, no huge surprises. Pass

light aroma of yeast and slight funk. It is a clear golden copper color with constant bubbles. Thin and light tastes of hops and yeast. Very dry that finishes clean.

Not a very good blond ale, but on tap at Upper West, very light, nothing crazy here.

Zesty start and a bit malty aftertaste aroma. Clear golden color. Kinda malty and skunky. Maybe I got a bad batch or let it get too warm.

steelhead3686 (216) - Athens, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Pours a clear gold with a medium with a large white head. Medium hops aroma with some citrus notes. Light bitter with medium sweetness. Light body with a thin texture and a light bitter finish. Not a great blonde beer but worth a look.

A good blonde. Pours a nice yellow, orange with a light white head. Smells of berries and slightly tropical fruit. Tastes similar. Wheat, and fruit. Crisp, Malty finish. Had on tap at Mario's Bar in Shelter Bay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
