Good blond ale at the brewpub during a Pedal Pub ride. Light and crisp but really nothing too special. Good to chug.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Sampled via growler pour thanks to Doug H at the 29th Annual ABA Meeting in Bloomington, MN. Pours a clear golden yellow pale colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of golden grain malt, some citrus and lemon zest hops, plus some grassy hops. Taste is light bodied, with flavors of golden grain malt, grassy hops and a hint of lemon. Finish is light, clean cut with a crisp aftertaste. Bring on the summer sessions!

On tap at the brewpub on 05/31/2009. Very clear golden body with a medium creamy off-white head. Sweet honey, pilsener malt and light grain aroma. Sweet honey flavor, some grainess with a bit of pilsener malt and a light grassy hop hint. Very clean. Medium light body with moderately high carbonation.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Pale, transparent and colored like diluted canola oil, with a creamy white head that retracts as if cellophane has been blasted with a hair dryer. Herbal butter and lemon sprouts pester the senses along with mild dishwasher detergent and lemon juice spritsed over crescent rolls. Light flavor, but there’s a decent croissant / pastry / biscuit temperament that rings strongly as it falls down the hatch. Mild chomps of sky breeze and cotton Lysol spray gives credit to a light springtime floral palate package. Lighter bodied and free from searing and acidity. Supple carbonation may detract from the flavorless virtues, but it all fades into a mouthful of kneaded bread dough in the end.
