Liked this beer, not anything special, just a good blonde ale. If you like blondes, this one shouldnít be over looked.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 28, 2013
On tap at Wrigleyville Brewpub. Pours a hazy light straw color with a thin white head. A lemon tanginess in the aroma and a bit of spicy hops on the nose as well. Light bodied and easy drinking. Has some refined maltiness and a very small hop character. Very little aftertaste.

Bottle from Canals. I like Goose island and this brew did them justice. Itís an easy drinking brew with hints of wheat spice and hop. Itís not big Jhn or the night stalker, but it is solid.

deyholla (6517) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 25, 2012
On tap @ the Clyborn location. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet tangerine with some sweet grains and a bit of flora. Flavor has tangerine throughout with a growing grain note that has a bit of sweetness.

TheAlum (5620) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2012
Flight on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy golden hue with touches of crisp darker glow, lighter elements on the bottom. Tiny whitish head dies to a small loose ring, laces small. Aromas are gentle touches of tangerine and bubblegum, some dry bready malts, crisp cereal grains. Touches of apple, oranges, and straw. Sweeter nose with just a touch of crisp dryness. Odd one. Initial is lighter bodied offering touches of oranges and bubblegum up front. Mellow sweetness shows some bready malts, flaked wheat, and some mellow dry straw into the backend. Fruit forward but still lighter on the palate. The sweetness up front trails intop a bit of a grainy and mellow finish, cereal grains, bread, and mellow sweetness gives that raw grainy dryness, a kiss of bready dryness, and some lingering fruity esters. Pretty fruity overall and fairly enjoyable once you get past that sweetness and kinda the oomph it puts out (not cloying, but sweeter for the light body and airy feel). A bit thin perhaps. Meh.
