3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden yellow color with a small head that lingers. Lots of sweet pale malt in the aroma plus a hint of lemon. Taste is fairly sweet and malty, a hint of lemon. Medium body and nice mouthfeel for a golden. Slightly bitter in the finish which ends the taste abruptly. I'm not usually a fan of golden ales but this one is pretty good.

Can from riverside Liquors. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing yep. A bit corny on the nose. I get a smidgen of some sort of hoppiness on the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh!

Can: Mild dandelion bouquet. Shimmering amber, thin head. Ash, with a touch of DMS. Finishes with wormwood and walnut. Thin, but flavorful and sessionable. Surprising complexity and interesting nuances.

A: Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thick White Head, Great Lacing
S: Wheat, Yeast
T: Yeasty, Wheat
M: Great Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Semi Drying, Semi Bitter
Overall, not a very refreshing blonde ale as you would expect, more towards a non-spicy saison than a blonde ale.

This poured a hazy straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was grassy and grainy. Flavor was similar, lightly choppy golden ale. Ok

Too hoppy for me. Tastes like some kind of medicine. Can’t really detect anything else.

16 oz can purchased at Pinocchio’s Beer Garden in Media, Pennsylvania. The pour is a hazed golden orange with a small white head. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer falls. The aroma is fruity sweet malt, along with a nice grain and a bit of grass. The taste is the nose, with a blend of sweet malt, cracker grain, and the earth and grass towards the back. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft active carbonation and a dry sweet finish.

Decent golden ale but nothing too special. The name sells it more than the taste, i’m sure.

On tap at Harris grill. Pours golden color with a white lacing head. Fruity aroma with a slight bitter aftertaste. Interesting.

Not a boring standard blonde, this has a nice citrusy hop flavor to it. Still zesty like a blonde should be, but the light hoppy bitterness makes it stand out to me.

Total Wine, Fairfax 4-pak: Pours golden color with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops, some bready malts. Although this is pretty light, the body is kind of on the heavier side of blonde ales. Hoppy bitterness is prevalent throughout. Nice, but simple hoppy blonde.
