3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. $6...yikes! The aroma on this is very nice with some subtle biscuit and doughy malts present. A light honey aroma is also present. Hazy, cloudy, unfiltered straw-colored body with a medium, strong fluffy white head present. Good lacing. Blondes should be filtered, no? Starts with a, earthy hop bitterness, which is fairly aggressive. This is followed by some light, cereal maltiness, which tastes a lot like pilsner malt. Finishes crisp, dry, and even more earthy with a significant hop kick. There is a very nice, creamy, perfect carbonated body on this. An enjoyable beer for summer, but at 50 cents an ounce, I can’t really justify buying this beer again. I have a feeling this beer will sit on the shelves for awhile, and that stale product will not be a good thing...especially with a hoppy beer like this. My bottle was bottled in 01/2012

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden, with a really really small head and a slight lace. A bit hazy. Aroma is cereals, faint flowers, a bit of resin as well. Good, pretty good! Taste is pretty much a hop-party as far as golden ales are concerned : a bit of everything, really, with a very healthy sourness that feels completely natural. Add in some fruits, grass and oak -- all coming from the malts -- and you have a terrific blonde ale. Those don’t really get better than this!
