COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A crisp, clean American Ale. Perfect for extinguishing your fiery thirst or when you crave an ice-cold beer. A great step up in flavor from the lighter style American and imported beers.

The body has a very clear appearance with some visible carbonation and a bright golden color. Its head is light and sudsy, bright white in color and fades out quickly leaving no lacing at all. Its aroma is mild and brings only a light hint of grain with very mild hops in the background. The flavor is a simple but nice light grain flavor and a very mild wheat twang mixes with a good balance of bitterness from hops. The body is fairly light and highly drinkable with a thin texture and average carbonation.

I drank this one from the bottle. A light, friendly ale. I enjoy blond ales, and this one fits the standard. Nothing distinctive enough to merit a discussion. Medium carbonation. Light aroma. Mild taste with only hint of bitterness at the back end. A bit of caramel and malt midway, with a relatively crisp clean finish.

Clear yellow gold light froth,ok carbonation. Grainy buttery carmel malt aroma,maybe a slight floral/fruit slightly. Taste is same as aroma with a smooth,good body-nice mouthfeel, more floral in finish,some grainy carmelness,slightly sweet.Pretty tastey for a session ale.Carmel butter notes with light floral mainly in taste.

A nice malty aroma with some caramel notes. This has a tasty strong initial flavor but finishes with some old painty notes. Actually the more I drink of this, the more painty it becomes.

This was my second go around with this beer and i forgot to rate it. It was a little better than I remember but wasnt all that impressive. A little thick on the palate.

Reviewed from notes. Served in a tulip glass. The pour is a slightly-hazed golden color with a really tall white head that persists for quite some time and leaves oodles of lacing down the side of the glass. The nose isnít too much, but is much better than the majority of blonde ales that Iíve had. Some light grain and bread plus a touch of fruit. The taste is a bit more plain with a bread-like character. The feel is really nice with a good body and carbonation level. Nice and sessionable. For what this is and against its competition, I really enjoy it. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-14-2010
