2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark gold with a small head. Slightly peppery aroma. Bland flavor. Dull. Could be better if they dried it out a bit and made it a bit livelier on the palate.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden, light head and nice lacing, quickly dissipating. Nose of sweetened pale malt, light husk and a touch of hops, fairly floral. The flavor is balanced, not too sweet with a bit more husk and a watery body. Thin boring finish, clean though.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from trade with cbkschubert! Poured a hazy orange with a thin white head that quickly dissipated. The aroma found sour citrus and grain. The flavor was of fruits, spices, and citrus with a slight caramel background. Light but almost creamy. Not bad. Thanks Craig!!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour was hazy amber with basically no head and little lacing. The aroma was a little off with some light hops the only thing beer-like to it. The flavor was quite a surprise for a "blonde ale," as this one had a lot to it. Nice caramel malts in the flavor, some honey, spices (somewhat festbier-like), and a nicely hopped (floral) balance to it. Came across somewhat like a lager, crisp and low in ale flavor "noise." Very impressed, but this can’t really be a "blonde" ale. I’d change the classification if I could only figure out what it really is. A great grab from my last AZ trip in any event.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A light orange/gold color. An aroma of malt and very light fruitiness. A flavor of sweet malt and a tinge of bitter that last and isn’t overbearing. A decent beer but the light alcohol is just too light. I could drink many of them even with my low tolerance for alc. I would call it an excellent middle of the day beer.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz Bottle: Good looking beer, a nice little head, with some carbonation, not the best looksing beer i’ve seen. The aroma just isnt quite right, if you ask me. ITs lemony, dirty/sweraty socks, skunky, and unrine, vanillla. the taste is biscuty/vanilla wafers, hops, grass, citrus, lemon.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, via FlacoAlto. Pours a slightly hazy golden colored body under a one finger fizzy white head. Light lemony hop and crystal malt aroma with a little citrus fruitiness. Flavor is light as well with a smack of lemony citrus over a delicate malt base. Very light bodied and refreshing on the palate with a lively fizzy carbonation. A fairly refreshing beer if nothing else, one that might rate quite well amongst the "lawnmower" style beers.
