2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours clear, pale yellow with average, creamy white head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is mostly mute with notes of biscuit and bread malts, lemon, grassy hops, ANC light herbs. Flavor is light sweet malt, light fruit esters, and faint hops; crisp finish. Light body and low carbonation.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had on tap at the brewery from notes I had taken at the time. Light golden color. Slight grainy scent and grassy hops. Taste is nothing to write home about, slight grain flavor a bit hoppy at the finish. Not an exciting beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of grain, grass, some slight earth, spice and yeast notes, some sweet biscuit malts come in with a touch of slight fruit as well. Taste is a mix of grain and biscuit, some husky notes, touch of earth, grass and yeast but restrained, some more sweet malts with a touch of slight fruit finishing fairly sweet.

Draft sample at the brewery. Pretty average golden or blonde ale...whatever that means. Light and refreshing I suppose.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light tellow color. The nose has a light nut and yeast feeling to it. The palate is simple with a slight creaminess. No metallic feel which is a good thing. Well made blonde ale.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 On tap @ PC. Quite light, clear yellow appearance with a white head. Some straw-like, pale malts in the nose but pretty weak. Slightly grainy, bland, watery golden ale with mild hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Poured a clear golden color with a thin, wispy white head that left some webby lacing on the glass. Light aroma with hints of bread, a faint graininess, faint honey, and a light grassy hoppiness. Smooth, lightly sweet entry with some soft bread and honey transitions into a lightly grainy middle that is followed by a lightly bitter, grassy hoppiness that lingered softly into the finish. Soft carbonation and light, drinkable mouth feel. Certainly nothing earth shattering, but this was a solid blonde that was easy to drink.
