Sample @ Oyster House during RBWG. Pear and honey accents on the nose. Taste is of pale malts. Prickly peppered fruits. Honeyed dry grass. Light body, zippy. Pleasant.

Draft to taster at OysterHouse. Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent dark gold with fluffy eggshell head. Smells mildly sweet, hoppy, and biscuity. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A nice example of the style.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Taster at the brewpub. Pours a pale yellow-gold with a small white head. Notes of bready and crackery malts, lemon citrus, grass, and light florals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Good blonde ale.

[ Tap ][ Oysterhouse ][ 4oz ][ Mini Imperial Pint ][ Free ][ 2/7/14 ]
>> Thanks Leighton et al for the share. Pours a low haze golden. Good foam. Nose is mild lemon, biscuit. Taste is tannic yellow apple with biscuit and sugar. Tannic, dry palate. Drinkable, simple.

On tap at OysterHouse in Asheville. Pours a golden color with white head. Grainy, malty, earthy flavors. Average blonde.

SirADNielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2014
On tap with Beau. Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a white head. A bit grainy, lemon, herbal aroma. Pretty dry. Light straw / hay. A touch of citrus. Good session brew.

Cybercat (3256) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Pours a nice clear golden - not much head, but that could be from how it was served. Aroma is not strong but is malty. That’s all. Malty flavor has a hint of apple, nothing more. Texture has average fizz and viscosity. OK, not this brewery’s best . I hope that I can nab t heir oyster stout someday. A good reason to return to Asheville!

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft at the lobster trap. Pours yellow with a thin white head that quickly disappears and leaves no lacing. Not much on the nose. Not much on the tongue either. A bit of a lawnmower beer guaranteed to not offend.

Pours clear straw yellow with thin head. Very light nose of lemon, grain & floral aroma. Nice, medium bodied palate is slightly creamy, with bread & lemon curd flavor. I’m surprised at the low ratings on this one. In general, I have been underwhelmed at a lot of the breweries in asheville, with the exception of highland. This beer is one of the best quality ones I’ve had in town. Blonde’s not my style, but overall it’s quite good.
