3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades relatively quickly leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of some bready and slightly grainy aromas. Mixed with these smells are some lighter notes of yeast and a bit of earth and grass.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and more biscuit like taste. As the taste moves on it dries a little bit with it taking on a more cracker like flavor. All the while, some taste of a very light hop of earth and floral come to the tongue. With a hint of an herbal flavor joining at the very end, one is left with a rather drier and slightly more dankly hopped (but still overall lightly hopped) flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in thickness for a pale of its strength with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. For the style it was rather appropriate and made for an easier drinking feel.
Overall – Nothing too special in terms of pale ale’s here. Decent, but somewhat run of the mill.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks Rachel for the bottle.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some trickling lacing sticking around the glass.
The smell had a sweet malty corn base with a light bready / biscuity / caramel maltiness rolling underneath my nose.
The taste was mainly sweet and bready malty.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. There’s a fairly nice crisp carbonation to this one.
Overall, I say I would have this blonde ale again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the Bitter Creek brewery. I am surprised at the hop aroma, citrusy, floral, some notes of bready bally. The flavor is more fruity hop, grainy, bitter finish. Better then I was expecting.
