dekester1 (309) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2013
Poured a clear mid-gold with a light head and lacing. Aroma was sweet - honey, mallt, clover. Taste was light and slightly sweet with malts, honey and slight grassiness with very mild hop finish. Palate was OK. Overall, a decent but not a real great blonde ale.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle from my niece. Decent honey aroma. Yellow body with white head. Thick honey and malt for flavor. Some chalk left on palate. Was wondering if you soaked some bread in this beer then toasted it what it would be like. But didn’t have time for that.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Very pale gold with an active white head, some decent but temporary lace. Effervescent. Pleasant floral honey and malt aroma. First sip is similarly sweet with a husky carbonic roughness to it. Thereafter nearly flavorless. Seriously nondescript. The beer is more felt than tasted, has a nice dry chalkiness to it that saves it from descriptors like ’watered-down’.

arminjewell (5996) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Pours golden with white head, aroma is floral with some malt, taste up front is a bit sweet and fruity, goes into sweet from the honey and goes into a light finish. Not bad.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Bottle. A - Very bright, clear gold color with an average sized, foamy, light, whispy white head. Disappears pretty fast leaving a very thin lace. S - Very strong herbal and floral aroma with a lot of bready/malty sweetness along with a bit of a vegetable/corn type of aroma. Somewhat reminiscent of honey, but a little heavy on the vegetable, and maltiness. T - Really thin and fairly bland. Dominated by corn/vegetable flavors as well as some malt sweetness that you expect from a bland adjunct lager. A faint spicy herbal flavor in the background. Very slight lingering sweetness. M - Very light with moderate carbonation. Very thin and watery. D - Easy to drink, but it is way to bland to want more. Not overly sweet, just thin and easy to down. Notes: I’ll probably pass on this one, got it for $3.99 a sixer so not like I’m really out much. Too bland and like a bad adjunct lager. A little bit of honeyish flavors and some more on the nose, but nothing to write home about.

12oz bottle-A little cloudy orange with a little white ring for a head. Aroma of malt and honey. Taste of honey, sweetness, and a dry finish. Decent tasting beer.

This blond ale pours a light yellow gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, with some honey. A light to medium bodied blonde ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, touch of honey that strengthens as the beer warms. The hops are slightly floral. Kind of your run of the mill blonde ale. Nice body and good carbonation. Is has not real flaws of note, its just not all that interesting to me. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Sampled from 12-oz bottle, picked up from Ryan’s Liquors in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-hazy, light golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissolves clean. Aroma of light roasted malt, a touch of citrus hops some fruity pears and a touch of honey. Taste is light bodied, smooth, with just a light honey bread flavor with a citrus aftertaste. Finish is slightly dry with a honey character flavor that quickly disappears. An average light beer overall.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2010
8/14/10. 12oz bottle courtesy cbfobes! Clear golden pour (a little darker than a Bud Light) with a fizzy white head that fades to nothing fast. The aroma is cream corn with a hint of honey on plain bread. The flavor is bland pale malts, soapy pool water, and again a hint of honey on bread. Huge meh here, folks.
