Mazama Brewery, Draft. This is a decent blond ale. I was pleasantly surprised, especially since it is in the Blond classification. Good summer beer.

22 oz bottle bought from Lifesource in Salem OR
$4.99. Says 7.7% alc on label.
Pours a clear golden coloured ale , with a large and creamy.thick white head.
The aroma is a little subdued but getting notes of spice,yeast and a little hop.
Very balanced yeast with some really nice peppery notes above the caramel like malts and herbal hops.
Mouth feel is fine and semi-thick with a nice drying finish.
An OK beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Brewforia. Pours hazy dark gold with a slight white head. Aroma is mildly fruity. Med body or nearly. Flavor is mildly spicy (clove) with some fruity ester. Maybe banana. Some malt background. Just goes to show that there are blondes and there are Belgian blondes! At 7.5% mayhap this should be under Belgian Strong Ale. Certainly much more tasty and interesting than so many American blondes that might be in the kolsch class.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium golden color, little head. Aroma is sweet, biscuity, yeasty. Body very slight, lively, disappearing off the tongue. Finish abrupt, slight. Nice enough, but not blowing my mind.
