3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours clear gold with weak white head. The aroma is a pretty cool mix of sweet honey, some corn and a bit of grainy malts to a vague hay like sensation. The taste is similar and I’m digging it actually. It has some sugar to honey sweetness cut by some malts and rolling into pleasing yet mild dry malt graininess into the finish. If the mood is right this may deliver. It did for me. Nice stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a clear, deep yellow body with an inch of pure white froth. Sure looks like a blonde. Light splatter of lace on the descent.
Smell: A clean, inviting maltiness with notes of softly toasted grains and breadcrusts with sweetish elements of caramel. Very little lemon from the hops, as the hops are kicking off notes of white pepper and spice.
Taste: Light pale maltiness with a touch of toasted grains, some toasted bread and sweetish touches of caramel and honey. Scantly fruity. Faint citrus along with some spiciness from the continental hops. Mildly bitter. Drying, though a final hint of sweetish malt accents on the finish with spiciness aided by the zip of crisp suds.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation with a little bit of zing to it.
Overall: I enjoyed it. A straight-forward but solid blonde ale.
