Lawnmower beer at it’s finest. A real snoozer if you’re drinking for flavor. Little in the way of any characteristics, which is somewhat fitting for the American Blond style The sweetness, especially as it warms, because apparent and leads to a sloppy finish. Serve it ice cold and you’ve got a refreshing brew.

One of those beers that kind of ’sits on the fence’ with me. While it wasn’t bad (had an interesting honey flavor), it didn’t really excite me too much. Slightly cloying... and almost too sweet. Just a little unbalanced... but not bad.

There was nothing here at all. A glorified version of a macro. This was a disappointing beer all around.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2003 One of the best blonde ales I have had, though most blondes suck, which could also be true in another category. As it says this beer is definetely refreshing. A light tasting beer that still remains solid and demands respect.

Tasted like well water from a hole in Grandpappy’s back yard. Some graininess, but not enough personality to either offend or inspire. This, frankly, bored me.

DO NOT confuse this for a Belgian blonde, as I erroneously did when purchasing. Hop and yeast aroma precede the hop and yeast taste. Unoffensive because there is no flavor to offend. Is this what water on the west coast tastes like?

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 19, 2001
Orange with a thick lacey head. Light fruity aroma with a slight, but not overwhelming hoppiness. Pleasant taste, decent attempt at a blonde ale, with a mellow and unoffensive personality.

Decent summer brew. Interesting malt flavors with some caramel and toasted notes and a little bit of Saaz bite. Nice quencing brew with some fruitiness as well.

Not bad but nothing to write home about either.
