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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; poured a very ruddy amber with a modest head. Aroma of yeast, bread, citrus, with something I couldn’t identify. Flavor wasn’t as good as the aroma; crisp, a bit dry, breast, yeasty, with a touch of earth in the finish. Ok
