Pours a bright semi hazey golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma is soft, fruit forward on the nose. honey, grain, tree bark, earth aromas. Taste is firm, smooth- grassy on the palate, fruit forward again, and tastey all around.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with a diminishing white head. Hints of floaties. Mildly sweet with malty aromas. Malty. Low carboantion. Medium to light bodied. Mildly bitter hoppy finish. Couragous with such a mild and mostly malty beer.

Had this one bottled, thanks Slothgar! Of the three I tried, this was my least favorite, but I really just don’t like this style too much. Hazu, light orange pour with a thin white head, nose of sweet malts and pineapple, light and weak mouthfeel, timid flavor, weak finish. Meh.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy blonde with minimal head. Little to no carbonation with a fruity aroma of malt and yeast. Flavor seems to match... too much on the watery side.

Thanks skyview. The beer pours to a hazy yellow body with a thin white head. The aroma is pineapple and simple fruity malts and yeasts. The flavor is simple toasted pale malts. Quite toasted with an average palate.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazed and straw yellow in color with a few pinpoints as the head. Aroma showcases golden corn flakes, lemon butter crust baguettes, toasted corn chex and chamomile on tea leaves. Flavor leads a sweet, lemon cream cheese danish character with drizzles of honey and sweet corn juice. Light honey oats wait on the water. Easy going shortbread supplements meld the lighter flavor to the softer mouthfeel for a light honey and lemony oat finish. Thanks, Bob!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2008 Re-rate: 2/29/08 - Pours a semi-hazy blonde straw brew with a thick white head that has some good retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of light tropical fruits of pineapple, pears and a touch of lemon. Taste is light bodied, very light carbonation, with flavors of light fruit, some thin multi-grain character and a touch of lemon zest. Finish is slightly watery but the light fruitiness has a good balance of flowery hops and bitterness. It is like a light beer but with more tropical fruit character. The second batch is a major improvement from the inauguration batch.
Picked up a six-pack from the new brewery in Plover, Wisconsin. From a 12-oz bottle, pours a cloudy pale blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates clean with no film top or white ring. Aroma of light tropical fruit, some thin citrus hops and a touch of pear. Taste is light bodied, well-carbonated with flavors of light tart fruit, pear and some citrus zest. Finish is thin, watery with a clean finish. One of the lightest blonde ales I’ve tried. Flavor may be overly-carbonated, but willing to try again.
