Iíve had worse golden ales, but not many. Sweet, corn and honey are the principle flavors, but they arenít strong. There isnít much strong about this beer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at the Parkville Microbrew Festival. Pours like an American Style light lager. Pours pale yellow with a medium white head. Medium carbonation. Malty sweet. No aroma. Watery and boring.

This is drinkable at best. Very light, with some honey sweetness, layed over a dry biscuity malt background and just a hitn of lemony like acidity in the background. I cannot really get a hop anything out of this beer. Truly a really weak beer.

ahhh, nothing like a local micro brew that tastes nearly as bad as coorís original. this american-style golden ale is probably best described as dirty water that a thirsty dog would pass up, as should anyone who truely loves beer. ínuff said.

lemon grass, citrus notes and soy........huh? ok I can detect some citrus, like over-ripe fruit but the others escape me. not bad up front, but the flavor drops off the scale pretty quick. thanks to Eric ( heemer ) for the bottle.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium hazy gold body with traces of a white head. The aroma is pears dry wood and bread. The taste is slightly tart bread with some walnuts. A slightly sweet hioney finish. Needs a little more character and less confusion.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a medium and slightly cloudy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of lemons, light grassiness, and some malts. Tastes of lemons and sweet malts. Thin and somewhat watery body. Nothing special, but hey, itís a Blonde Ale and at least I can now cross off Kansas from my state list.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My 100th beer and 1st milestone. This is only my 100th rating because it happened to be at the KC Brewfest.
Talk about a mild beer. This thing was watery and weak.
It had a nice apprearence, but the flavor was lacking and not very complex at all.
I wasnít impressed and wanted to be because the people at Pony Express are great people.
It was foamiy and looked good, but I couldnt find a flavor to jump out at me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden maize with inviting white foam head. Almost a spicy nose that hints at corriander (is that the soy?). The flavor is unique, too ... mostly a sharp malt with a cheesey bite. Interesting sweettart finish. OK.
