Overall not bad. Not the best blonde ever, not even blonde, it was an amber honestly. It was ok. Need to concentrate on what they want to produce, it was decent.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Cloudy dirty medium gold, lively white head. Doughy cereal, yeasty, with a bit of sour funk in the finish. Over carbonated, gassy, unbalanced, but most importantly, just not very tasty.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours with a lightly hazed, deeper than expected, orange hued body with a large white head. Aromas are nutty, bready and malty. Lightly astringent. Flavors are sweet, raw wort, grainy, cereal like, nutty, peanut shells. Medium bubbles, some sweetness. To be honest, flawed; not great.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a darker gold color for what was expected (almost like a pale ale).
1 1/2 finger head that dissipated almost instantaneously.
Aroma is of slight bread and a super light hop presence.
The taste is bready along with, again, light fruits. Not bad just not wowing me. Pretty damn drinkable, just not something I’m seeking out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Rating #11. Golden pour with a dark white head. Clean bready, biscuity aroma with just a hint of a hop presence. Nice flavor, light bitterness and a mild grainy quality that was really quite nice. Very enjoyable beer. (1972)

Bought bottle from Total wine. Very refreshing and interesting take on a blonde ale.

Poured from the bottle. Pours slightly cloudy. Aroma is grainy and of cereal. Also tastes this way. Blah, I don’t think I will finish the whole bottle, too much better stuff in my fridge.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle at Minneapolis Beer Fest. Pale pour with a white head. Slightly citrusy, some bread/grain, and some carbonation. I wasn’t too impressed with this one.
