2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at the brewpub. Clear golden a white ring. I taste grain, mild pale malts, and soft hops. The feel is thin and the flavor is, too. The hops help carry this one. A bit of yeast is evident. Not bad but not my favorite here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Since this dump (Hereford & Hops brewpub) doesn’t serve Blatz, I usually consume this swill when I’m at the H&H.
Not great. Not bad. Just OK. Does not fill you with the "warm fuzzies" like a case of Blatz will. Believe it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Escanaba brewpub. Light lemon sour malt aroma. Pours a very pale lemon yellow. Rim in white. Flavor is a
classic salty, grainy, lightly chewy malt backed with a bit of metallic/grassy hop flavor.
Very low key, but clean, which I appreciate. This is actually a decent golden, with nice
drinkability, crisp malt character and refreshing dry hop balance. Nothing really stands out
but it’s a decent version. Finishes on a lightly sweet citrus hop bite and then closes out
cleanly. Rather hoppy for the style actually and I think that’s what makes it work. Fresh,
bright, clean. A good blonde.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I usually HATE this style, but this one came close to me ordering a second. Hardly any aroma. Could pick up a hint of light fruit. Pour was a nice light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was sweet in the beginning. Apple and pear with a dry and light aftertaste. Nice carbonation. One of the better blonds I’ve had (beer that is!)

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Very light golden pour with a small head. Sweet fruity nose with a light hint of hops. It has a really light and sweet taste, much like a lot of big commercial beers. Finishes quite dry like most of the other beers at this location. It is a much better alternative for fans of American light beers.

On tap at the Wausau brewpub on 6/24/07: Pours a transparent bright golden with a clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of faintly sweet malt and some fairly fresh floral hops. Body is lightly grainy and pale malty sweet with some earthy bittering hoppy balance toward a crisp finish. A pretty decent blonde ale.
