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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft from the Depot in Wala Walla, this poured a golden color with a thin head and light lacing. Nose is of light malts and citrus hops. Nice creamy mouthfeel and the flavor of malt and hops in good balance. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Taken in total this was a really good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The second best beer I had at Glacier Brewhouse. This was a pleasant surprise. Normally I dismiss all the brewpub blondes and ambers and pales as the same old crap, but this beer definitely offered something more. Brau nailed it when saying this beer was almost Belgian in style and strength. It had a rich, buttery nose, to completely a smooth, yeasty, strong flavor that really went down well. Pour was the perfect shade of blonde with just a hint of opacity that wasnt quite bud or not quite a hefe. Really looked great in the glass, and tasted real great in the mouth.

Pint - Jakes Bar & Bistro - Steilacoom, WA
Aroma – Good mix of hops and malts.

Flavor – This was a very nice easy to drink blonde ale. Liked the flavor of malt and hops balance.
Palate – Great Mouthfeel, nice texture with a good dry finish.
Overall – This was a great beer. A perfect beer for those hot days mowing the lawn. Was at awe this was from Alaska. Wonder what a hot day is for them? It was brewed very nicely.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light gold with slight haze. Not much head. Slightly hoppy aroma. Shockingly malty body (I’m guessing Maris Otter) and light, crisp hops. Keeps it from being boring.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at the brewpub 7/6/05: Dark yellow beer. Really strong sweetness with a hint of high alcohol? Damn near a Belgian-type ale. I’d think that most people would run from it.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had on tap at the Resurection Roadhouse in Seward, Alaska. Medium golden appearance with a decent, white thick head, good lacing. Has a slighlty buttery aroma with some vegetable accents. Same buttery essence carries over to the flavor with a bit of bit of biscuity, malty sweetness. Mouthfeel was decent. Probably brewed for the masses. A decent, but not stellar effort.
