One of the best tasting blonde ales I have ever had. There is no other beer I would rather have with BBQ, and that is pretty important.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
650ml bomber pours a pale golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that settles down to leave some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild but pleasant with some grains and citrus. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with some light citrus hop bitterness and a dry finish. Light to medium body with good carbonation. A full flavored blonde ale that is recommended.

mabel (5789) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
[1696-20080907] Tap. Fruity bread yeast aroma. Slightly hazy, medium orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy white head and some lattice lacing. Fruity yeast dough flavour has a bit of toasted biscuit. Medium body has a little zing. Nice yeast characteristic, tasty and repeatable.

Sampled at the ’12 GABBF. Pale gold color with a sticky white head. Light yeasty nose with some white sugar sweetness. A little cloying. Some old lemon rind in the finish. Standard brew pub blonde.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle:   Dirty straw, fairly hazy, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Pale bready aroma, even a faint bit of wheatiness.   I might think this was an American Wheat based on the look and aroma.   Wheaty and straw on the tongue, light sweetness, a touch dry.   Had it been clearer and without the wheaty aspect, I might think Golden Ale.   However, its not bright.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes clean, with a soft wheat aspect.   Faint buttery straw/hay on the exit.   Yeah, seems more in line with an American Wheat than a Golden Ale.   Tiz alright.

Bottle: Poured a golden with white whispery head. Sweet grains and light floral. Nice corn and grain with a wet finish.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2008
2008-09-07. Crisp yellow body, with modest white head and nice white lace. (3+) Mild aroma, pale malt, cereals and wheat notes. (6+) Flavour is light, pale malts, light cereal grains and a light bitterness throughout. Average palate borders on light. Bit dull but does what it set out to do. On Tap, Humpy’s, Anchorage

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 6, 2008
22-Jan-08 (Draft: Kassik’s Kenai Brew Stop in Nikiski, AK) Talk about a remote location, driving to the Kenai Peninsula pretty much to the middle of nowhere right to the brewer’s house (the brew shop is in their front yard). The first beer in the lineup is their blonde, and this beer really sets the stage for what is to come. This blonde is not your typical light beer absent of character. It boasts a light, but pleasant, spicy hop flavor that balances the lightly sweet grainy/corny malts. The medium body is also very respectable for the style. In the nose, aromas mirror the flavor, with honey and slightly grainy and corny malts balanced by light hops. Golden in color and a bit hazy. The quarter-inch off-white head shows solid retention while leaving some patchy lace on the glass. Not my style of beer, but because of the care the brewer took to make a golden ale with character, I still find myself enjoying it.

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours to a golden body with a white head. Aroma is bready and has a light noble hop. The flavor is biscuits with some light noble hops. Very bready. There is a light metallicness. The palate, besides the metallicness is medium bodied and clean.
