Vigorous pour produced a very nice 3/4" fluffy white head... that left behind good lacing. Very pretty golden/extra lite honey brew.
Smell is bready pale malts and just a touch of earthy hops.
Flavor is pale malts... biscuity notes... floral hops with just enough bitterness... maybe a little sweet or could use a bit more hop flavor. Body is very nice... good balance across the board.
Grand Teton makes some pretty good brews although, this is not my favorite,

Bottle, thanks Russ! Grassy hop aroma with biscuit, citrus and floral hops. Pours pale golden colored with 2 fingers of white head with excellent retention and not much lacing. Starts with biscuity malt with some citrus. Finishes semi-dry but crisp and clean with grass and floral flavors coming through. Pretty good, but nothing to distinguish itself.

NOSE ? scents of grassy hops prevail as I whiff this from the bottle.
FLAVOR ? slightly hoppy (grassy & earthy style) at the beginning and smooths out to a very approachable pale ale.
NOTES ? clearly brewed for the tourists, this one is a drinkable pale ale. Good thing about this is that it?s not a pale ale masquerading as an IPA. Unfortunately, nothing stands out about it that makes it very unique.

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.

Pours a copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is caramel, floral hops, some citrus, and biscuit. The taste is more of the same with a little bit of hop bitterness.

0.33 l bottle as a souvenir from my mother-in-law. Nice head, dark yellow colour and lots of bubbles. Strong taste of malts and CO2 with some hops. Quite nice.

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.
