12oz bottle. pours a clear orangish amber color with a big off white head. Aroma is light sweet butterscotch with a slight spicey hop background. The butterscotch sweetness flavor comes first but is followed quickly by a hit of hops bitterness, along with a hint of citrus in the background and a dry light finish. Light, refreshing body with moderate to strong carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a clear bright gold color with no head. Aroma of pale and sweet malts, straw, faint fruit and floral hops. Flavor was pretty much the same. Light-bodied, with moderate-low carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Very basic beer. Something called ’Vacationland’ should be more exciting.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a short but thick white head. Unappealing corn-like aroma. Uninspiring light malt flavor with some lemon. Watery texture and a weak, unremarkable finish. Take a vacation from Vacationland.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Draught @ Brewpub: This one poured a golden color. There was a small white head that leaves some lacing. Some floral, spicy and light citrus notes to the nose. Some malt sweetness also. Taste is a touch dry with a very light bitterness. Almost a medium body. Some malts, earthiness, slight spice. A decent summer brew.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, a hint of caramel, and some light hops. Nothing really stands out about this beer. Average texture. An ok beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma is buttery with a bit of hops. Pours a golden color with good carbonation and a thin white head. Taste is light malt, butter, citrus, and then the hop bitterness at the end. Medium body. This is a nice ale that is easy to drink with maybe a bit more hop character than other blondes I’ve had. The flavor is similar to all other Grittys ales but much lighter. I like all of their beers.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Jimmy the Greek’s, OOB, Maine. Pours a blond yellow with a good amount of head and lace. Tastes of sweet malt, cereal, bread, and grain. Light body. Lightly dry texture. This does NOT say to me “ drink more” It doesn’t even fit in the Summer seasonal area in my opinion. Slightly below average.
