12 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear golden color with a small white ring. The aroma has mild floral notes, pale grainy malts with a light sweetness. The flavor has some mild fruit character early before moving into pale, grainy malt, lightly toasted, grassy with a dry finish. Next...

Not much. Smell, taste, finish, or anything. Clear and gold. Thin. Very light malt flavor mingles with an odd hop character. This one is on my don’t bother list.

Bottle to half-pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with fluffy white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells of mild caramel, mild pale malt, and mild hops. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

RedSox2004 (1137) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Crystal clear light gold with a smallish head and little lace. Modest malt aromas with hints of pine. Flavors are similar, with a sweetish caramel foundation supporting the itrus and piney hops. Light to medium body, Some effervescence, slightly sticky mouthfeel, and a lingering sweetness.

Clear, light orange. Sweet on the nose. Not much going on. Some carbonation and light malty caramel. Light without too much taste.

maxwelldeux (3065) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a fairly clear orange-amber color with a very thin head. Nose is actually just a tad bitter, which surprised me. Tasty is very light, but without too much flavor. OK.

MadRobin (1693) - Silver Spring, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Poured from 12 oz. bottle at Urban Eats Arts & Music Cafe in Mt. Rainier, MD. Clear, darkish amber with off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, grass and maybe a little citrus--all quite muted. Taste of caramel, grain, herbal hops, pine and a touch of citrus. Medium body and high/medium carbonation. More of a pale ale than a blonde, but not bad in any case. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz. Pour is golden(obv) with a foamy white head. Fruit and more fruit jump from the glass. Slight caramel notes also. Flavor is light and easy drinking. Nice floral hops, followed by fruity goodness. Nice every day brew and slightly complex.
