Golden, nice lacing, thin head. Very malty, but with a nice blackberry fruitiness from the Centennial. Creamy.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Hangar on the wharf.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden blonde/yellow color with a one finger white foamy head (nice, for a bar pour). There was some light lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had a sweet malt base to it with a slight spicy hops in the background.
The taste was mainly sweet but had a light spice to it. The aftertaste was semi sweet that bled into a dry sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was mainly subdued.
Overall, good blonde ale worthy of having again.

Glacier beers are better anywhere but the brewpub. Fact. Anyway, this is a tasty blond. There is a nice hint of apple but the yeast character is otherwise clean. There’s a touch oof crackery malt and a tiny touch of hop bitterness in the finish. Well done and a bit unusual.

[Tap] Tried this at the brewpub in mid-September. Bright golden pour with a rocky white head. Sweet cereal grains, soft hops and lemongrass in the aroma. Dry and grassy/grainy taste includes a mild floral hop bite in the finish. Lively carbonation and good body for the style. A pleasant surprise.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the pub. Clear golden with a creamy ring of fine bubbles and lace. Mild aroma of fresh grain and grassy, citrus hops. This is a well-balanced, softly carbonated, light-medium bodied brew with a lightly crisp hop finish. Nice sessioner with a bit more flavor than most goldens.

On tap at the brewpub. Light golden color with a thin white head. Light grainy nose. Sweet grainy taste with some lemon citrus and buscuits. Decent brewbup blonde and it will be accessable to the the non craft beer drinkers.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
sampler at the Glacier Brewhouse in Anchorage. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a white head. Could not pick up any aroma. Maybe it was too cold. Taste was of grain, but no yeast standing out. Mouthfeel was dry. Disappointingly bland.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. The aroma is bread, light citrus hops and a spicy yeast scent. Flavor is sweet malt with just the right amount of bitterness for the style. Medium to light body with ample carbonation and a crisp refreshing finish. This is a surprising treat for the typical "tourist beer" that most places put out. More flavorful than most Blond’s I’ve had and the finish is excellent.
