Formerly known as Sparkling Ale (6/05)
A golden export-style ale made from only malt and hops, no fillers or adjuncts. A brillant golden colour gives a “sparkling” appearance as the gas escapes from the glass. The natural sweetness of the malt is perfectly balanced by the bitterness derived from the hops. This beer represents the way blonde ales were made 100 years ago.

341ml bottle. A standard pale straw pour with short lived faint head. We have a commercial aroma upon the nose. Carbonation is visible throughout. Very clean tasting on the mouthful with a weak corn malt aftertaste. Bitter is there however only slightly. A standard beer here that to me is not too much unlike MGD.

Cerveja clara e com espuma de pouca formação. Aroma pouco marcante e uma cerveja bastante suave. Esperava algo mais elaborado.

deyholla (10216) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Sampled from the tap at the Pearson location. Pours a clear yellow with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has lots of straw with hints of corn and grains underlying. Flavor has lots of straw and hay with not much else.

AleRider78 (682) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
Has a thin coat of white foamy head. Has a yellow/orangey colour. Medium carbonation and has good lacing. Aromas are mostly of weak hops and malts, very light. Flavours are quite citrus like, lighter type malts. Pretty smooth and tingly mouthfeel. Easy drinking, much better on tap than in bottle. Hops and malts are well balanced. Not too bad, nice session beer

sulawang (1052) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Visual: (seasonal sampler 6-pack). Pours clear golden without much head, half ringed retention, slow steady singular streams. Nose: liquid sweet barley malt. (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: crisp, subtle CO2 fizzy Mid-palate: barley grain (lvl-4-sweetness), corn, liquid barley malt Finish: trace tanginess, basic flat barley malt sweet finish. Summary: Is there a slight citrusy component or am I imagining things? Likely the latter, this one is extremely BORING. Barely any body and very one note. DWYT = Don’t Waste Your Time.

Kauge (1618) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2015
Tap at the Brewpub. Pale yellow with off-white head and loads of bubbles. Doughy grainy nose, somewhat fruity. Flavour similar. Not really inspiring or exciting or stimulating, although I do see myself enjoying a pint of this in good company. Crisp, refreshing on the palate. Weakish though, nearing watery.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6846) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2015 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a hazy yellow-gold color with a small foamy white head that let minimal lacing. The aroma was tart and spritzy with a bit of lemon. The flavor was tangy, tart and sweet with lemon, sugar, yeast and a bit of cardboard. Medium length finish. Light body. Ok.

The colour for a blond/golden is pretty solid. Aroma is pretty soft/weak, however not necessarily a bad thing. Taste is a nice soft taste and isn’t too high on a traditional "beer" taste. Overall a very solid beer from mill St. For the price, this is definitly a solid beer choice.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
This beer is a perfect example of why craft beer should be consumed over macro... So as long as it’s not skunked in the clear bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, fruity esthers and grainy. Taste is pretty much the same providing flavor and very little hop flavor and no bitterness but crisp like a blond ale should be with malt flavors. Nice summer session patio beer.

Despite being in a clear body I never got any skunk from this one. Taste of bread and hay with light grassy hops. A reasonable body with a sweeter aftertaste. I like the look of it in the clear bottle. Wouldn’t normally buy it, but it comes in the taster pack.
