dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Pours clear rich gold with 2 fingers of dense head and incredible retention and lacing. Aroma is cheerios, light fruity pilsener malt, grassy hoppiness. Taste is pilsener-esque with refreshingly clean grain, light sweetness, hints of pepper and honey, barely noticeable ale fruitiness, balanced wood and grass notes from hops. Body is medium, creamy, average carbonation, full mouthfeel, dry, slightly bitter finish, EXTREMELY drinkable. Overall, a great representation of the style. Delicious and fully flavored at 5%abv, this is another big winner from Hopfenstark.

craftycarl21 (2135) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Thanks to noodleuser. Hazy light golden pour with a billowing head. Nose and flavor both held nice notes of lemongrass, orange peel, strawberry, cider, and some good doughy wheat. Clean and crisp palate, quite refreshing. Very nice for the style.

oteyj (2127) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Thanks noodleuser. Hazy straw pour with a monster white head. Lemony dough, orangepeel, lemon candy, and apple/pear cider, sporting a medium body with huge caressing effervescence and a dry finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle thanks to noodleuser: pours a slightly hazy golden with a large frothy white head. Has a sweet light biscuity nose and some light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and chewy light malts with a good balance of clove and earthy hops before a drier bittersweet finish.

ryan (3187) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Heavy perfume and phenolic yeast nose, with pepper and pears. The taste is dry and bitter with lots of pepper, flowers, astringent plant master, grass. Finish is rather harsh, something like chugging perfume or windex.

BeerandBlues2 (9081) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle shared by Noodleuser. Pours hazy yellow with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is grassy, spicy and fresh hops, light malt, earthy yeast, huge fruity esters and spices. Flavor is fresh, grassy and spicy hops, medium bitterness and fruity esters and a dry finish. Light body, low warmth, medium carbonation.

GT2 (7884) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
750mL thanks to noodleuser. The pour is a clear, light yellow/ blonde with an explosive white head. Massive retention, huge lace. Nose is sugary, sweet, lemon drop, candies, sweet dough, cidery, yellow pear. Oxidized apple slice. Weird. Taste is astringent, weird. Very strange stuff. Not a big fan. Stressed yeast profile. Medicinal lemon abound. Baby powder and mealy apple. Ick.

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle: Poured a hazy bright yellow color ale with a huge pure white foamy head with good retention and some nice lacing. Aroma of clean cereal with bready yeast and some floral notes with slight citrus notes. Taste is refreshing while being quite complex with nice mix of clean cereal with nice floral undertones and some light tart and citrus notes with a yeast strain that is bready and funky at the same time. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Probably one of the best blonde ale I had a chance to taste.

1FastSTi (3283) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Tap at Sugar Maple. The beer pours to a murky straw colored body with a thin white head and nice lacing. The aroma is light pineapple and sweet fruity yeasts and clean grain. The flavor is sweet fruity and crisp grain. Nicely balanced hop profile. The palate is sweet and clean. This was a nice surprise of a beer and I’d have it again. It was easy drinking.
