BLADT (653) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle pour. Fizzed over on opening. Clean straw gold in class with very active head. Aroma is apricot, sweet, honey-esque grains. Body in thin. Taste has some light caramel, dried apricots. Some lemon candy. A weird, metallic aftertaste.

Yellow pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma is light malt and floral hops. Flavor mirrors aroma with an ok bitter finish. Medium bodied and a tad fizzy for me. Still pretty solid.

Transfer from BA review on 4-28-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a light golden color with a small pure white head. The head fades relatively fast to leave very little lacing. Smell – Some breadiness with hints of caramel and a very light corn aroma. Taste – A shot of malt and corn are present up front. These are lightly sweetened by some caramel and sugary sweetness. As the taste advances the sweetness fades and at the end leaves a slightly dry flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – Lighter bodied with a slightly above level of carbonation. It is suited for the taste and style, but nothing too fantastic. Overall – Not a lot of flavor and rather subtle characteristics overall. Pretty average and somewhat boring.

Draft at Pony Bar HK during the Hudson Valley NY tap takeover. Pours a light golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is grain, light vanilla and crisp wheat. Mouthfeel is grain, light malt, spice and sweet bread. Not too awful, but just a bit dull.

Ron (2692) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle. I like to try all NY beers i come across. Pours a hazy amber with a white head and not much lace. Nose is spicy yeast. Taste is grainy bread, grass and a little spice. Body and thin and finish is dry. It is a bit watery. Would have been better in the hot summer time.

merc7186 (2256) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2013
The beer had a clear straw color to it, a mild white head ring and no lacing on the glass. The beer smelled mediocre with an extremely mild grassy nose with some lemon zest and a yeasty finish. The taste was average as the beer was very yeasty with a mild lemony citrus finish. The mouthfeel was average as the beer is properly carbonated but left you with nothing else. Overall, a really weak blonde ale with not much to offer.

joebudzjoe (667) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle poured into a bug. Looks just like any other macro. Notes of yellow apple, honey and a bit of toffee but overall, this is a malt heavy beer with a bit of a peppery hop note at the end. Rather bland, but not awful.

12oz bottle. Pours a light golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is bready with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is sweet and bready up front with a nice bit of hops in the finish.
