COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Seasonal Blonde Ale is brewed with the finest 2-row, carapils and wheat malts, perfectly balanced with fragrant Cascade and Saaz hops. Pale gold in color with a clean, crisp flavor, our Blonde Ale has floral and spicy hop notes with a subtle malt sweetness in the finish. Light-bodied and refreshing, this beer works equally well on its own or paired with seafood, spicy food, barbecue or a host of other choices. A sensational thirst quencher, our Blonde Ale will cool you off on a hot summerís day.

I grabbed 6 of these at Total Wine for $3.99. I wouldnít feel right paying any more than that. It is easy to drink, and would be great by the pool, but it doesnít age well and is a very boring experience. There is a hint of malt sweetness toward the finish, but it leaves after a few swallows. If you want something you can chug on a hot summer day, this is it. But donít expect this to pair well with food. Cheers!

I still donít like American blondes. Look at the ratings, Iím not joking. Got to be one of my least favorite styles.

Light... Solid blonde beer, most will enjoy this light blonde ale, but seemed to lack standard carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1617) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Pours a slight hazy golden-yellow; bubbly with a short, and short-lived near white head. Weak but nice aroma. Mainly light toasted grain with some fruitiness. The taste largely follows the aroma; again, decent quality M - good body for style. Slightly dry finish. O - a decent but undistinguished summer ale.

Gold with a slightly light brownish tint.Slight head.Pretty clear. Nose is malty/nutty with sweetness,very sligth fruit maybe. Taste is ligtly malty/nutty sweet with slight citrus fruit,light spice,light citrus finish.Kind of a lightly sweet/ nutty /malty -taste, at least it has some flavor,beats a local blonde ale I just had. Its ok. think I might just dump it to not waste my few beer limit to drink something better,just because it probably would go better with food.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with a moderate white head. Actually smells a bit like a cheap lager. Not a lot good about this.

JamesCory (54) - Wheeling, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2012
AR: Very little aroma. I was hoping this would be in the tradition of some other blondes that Iíve had, with big flavor and impact; sadly, not so. Slight banana aroma. Very slight.
AP: 100% clear. Active bubbling, no head.
T: Very light sourness to it.
P: Thin, somewhat bubbly.
O: Wow... this was disappointing. Might not be a bad beer for after mowing the lawn... but gatorade works for that too. Overall, Iím not a fan.

12oz bottle - pours murky pale orange with thin white head. Nose is cardboard. Flavor adds caramel and floral hops. Lightly sweet and light to moderate bitterness. Light body. Not the worst Iíve had for the style.

12oz bottle 9/8/12 (Binnyís Naperville Singles Rack)-40į in English Pint-Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of hops, spices, sweetness, and grains. Taste of the same with some more hops. This light bodied brew is pretty well balanced and goes down easy.
