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.

A: snifter. pours a dark golden straw color with great clarity. nice white head on top. decent head retention. fair lacing.
S: a bittersweet aroma. some hay and slight metallic tones. some fruit characteristics, but nothing specific.
T: really bitter and not very summer-like. metallic finish. the hop flavors are just bitter, with no presence other than that. way in the back of this is a sweetness, but the bitters seems to ruin it. It reminds me of a sweet heineken.
M: dry and metallic. decent carbonation level. palate is too confusing.
D: not doing this one again. summer equals refreshing, and this beer is not for me.
