I have to say this surprised me. Poured unfiltered with a big snappy head like a Dort. Distinctive aroma of apricots, cinnamon, vanilla, and mango. Amarillo dry hops in a pale lager? I bet that’s what it is. Taste carries through, a hoppy, fruity, tang that pretty much overpowers the malt, although what malt there is is simple, clean, and sweet. This could have used a little more balance but it’s a *gasp* pale lager that I’d buy again.

Tap at the brewery. Golden, clear, fluffy white head. Clean malt hop aroma. Nice malty brew with a gentle, but noticable noble hop flavor. Crisp, clean, and well done.

Good Blond ale. Pours a golden body with an orange tint. Huge frothy white head?? Soapy, vanilla aroma which was hard to detect. Nutty, smooth character. Sweet honey flavor. Malty finish.

Gold body, sweet fruit aroma. This is a fine blonde ale that is pleasant to drink and smooth on the palate.

looked good to start with, but went down from there, a very sweet fruity flavor, highly carbonated, not really a beer that I would like to have again, but worth one try

Orange/gold, with thin white head. Very fruity aroma, with notes of citrus and cherries. Juicy palate, and a big sweet fruit flavor. as it warms faint notes of toffee emerge. Slightly viscous finish. Tasty! Thanks Lou18 for the trade!

The happiness from lmgraz1 goes on...golden color, no head, not even as I poured it. Sweet scent, alot of caramel and maybe some vanilla. Taste is very much the same, with caramel being the major component of the first part of the taste, the tail is a little malty. I think a little more malt taste would help this out, maybe give it a little more body, which is currently on the thin side for a lager...maybe they just need to work on the name.

Golden color, creamy head, soft carbonation. Grass hay and clay nose. Very light grassy taste, weak and kind of an unpleasant copper taste in there.
