2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light golden color with a diminished off-white head. Pale malt, grain and grass in the aroma. Starts with bits of malt and honey in the flavor. Middle has some hay and grass. FInish gets drier with more grain and hay. Feels is a little prickly, but ok. A simple, boring ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarkets - 12 oz bottle.Pours a slightly murky medium golden with a bit of a glint and a slight white head. Sweet aroma with hints of distant fruit and some buttery notes. Refreshing flavor with some of the same buttery notes, muted citrus, and just a hint of cereal. Crisp mouthfeel. Not a bad summer refresher.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a and a fair lacing. The aroma was orange peel and lagerish. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a light yellow, gold body with no head. The aroma is feint malt and maybe wheat. The flavor is very crisp and refreshing for what it is, which is a moderatley boring golden ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz Bottle Ė Top Foods Ė Olympia, WA
Aroma: Light malt and hops aroma.
Appearance: Golden in color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor: A nice lager flavor this was good for a great poker night with a decent malt and hops flavor.
Palate: Dry finish, with alight lager finish.
Overall: Not a super beer this will be for the masses as they like little flavor and a beer flavor.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smells like a malty pale lager, looks the same. Mostly this doesnít seem much like an ale at all to me, more like a bad pale lager. Quite a bit of malt up front, a thin finish. Thereís a slim chance Iíll buy this again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Quite clear, deep yellow body with a smallish, fine, but sustaining, white head.
Smell: Mildly sweetish, meager malts with a lightly earthy, vaguely floral hop scent. Itís not exactly a stand out aroma.
Taste: Light pale maltiness with an infinitesimally small amount of wheat grain. Subtly sweet overall. Earthy, lightly floral hop character with just enough hop bitterness to balance. Ill-defined maltiness in the later half with an encroaching wateriness. Finishes dry, clean, but a little on the weak side.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A light ale, indeed! Thankfully, no off flavors, and, it has kindly low ABV%, so thereís that. But, being so light, itís hard not to the shout 1...2...3... CHUG!! Although, Iím left wondering who in the Production Development Dept. tasted their Blonde Ale and said "not light enough!!"

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is dusty and malty with adjuncts, citrus hops, and a touch of grain husks, honey, and grass. The appearance is deep gold with a large foamy head. The flavor is like the aroma with some acidity and a bread like finish. The palate is average for the style. Overall an enjoyable beer but damaged by junk malt.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle... Poured pale orangeish-yellow with a white head. Pungent, rotten fruit and malt aroma. Palate was borderline unbearable and really stung the back of my mouth. All I tasted was squash and corn chips with this one and a sulfur like finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Clear golden color, white fizzy head. Aroma of corn, hay, and old boards. Light flavor of straw and a nice floral hop follow up. Light bodied, medium flavor. Itís alright, not anything good.
