presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2010
Bottle. Hazy amber, gold around the edges, with a porous lasting head and some dirty sticky lacing. That is a nice beer. Tasty APA. Nice hop flavour. I know the malt is grown by Rogue but the name does not reflect the quiet taste and hopiness of this beer. A great pitcher beer. Quite hoppy in a quiet drinkable way for 35 IBUs.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Pour a hazy blonde with a very loose head. The aroma is citrusy and piney with some honey and good fruitiness. The flavor is grapefruit with a little saltiness and a nice all around citrus rind bitterness.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Very bubbly with frothy head. Light, biscuity aroma, some grassy hay notes. Dry, crisp flavor, round malt notes, little depth, very mineral. Taut, woody hoppiness, dry finish, lively carbonation. Quite hoppy.

ChainGangGuy (4348) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2010
22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours out a delicately hazed, orange-copper body with a goodly-sized, near-white head. Smell: A nose thatís chiefly lemony with a backing of fine white pepper in the fore and the grainy-scented, homegrown malts bringing up the rear. Taste: Initial taste of well dried-out biscuits and simple whole grain bread. Particularly small touch of honey-ish sweetness thatís quickly knocked out by the lemon pepper hop taste, a medium amount of bitterness, and a hand-hewn hay character. Modestly acidic. Finishes fairly dry with a bit of lasting bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight creaminess to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: Iíll admit, itís a cute concept. Decently drinkable and not quite as simplistic and one-dimensional as Iíd first anticipated. Letís see where they go with this whole "GYO" idea.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2010
Cloudy yellow to orange pour. Nose isnít bursting but does show some young prairie grains, fresh hops and hits of yeast. Some peach hits the palate followed by kumut grain bread, those fresh hops and tangy malt. Light and fluffly mouth feel with a grassy finish. This is certainly lively and embodies fresh and does so quite well for not being a powerhouse.

Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with off white head. Floral hop aroma with some biscuit malts. Flavor is moderately bitter and grassy with some maltiness. Medium body with average carbonation.

Prometheus (160) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2010
Not bad. Poured a golden brown with a substantial head and some lacing. Malt, hops, greens? in the aroma Strong clean earthy flavor. Grassy kick. Interesting.

SDalkoholic (2124) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Poured a solid golden blonde ale with a frothy development of head that left behind patches of lacing. The aroma is inducive, and carries a heavy burden of malts that smell sort of milky or dairy like; however, there is a presence of green herbal hops as well. Flavors are bitter and bold with an earthy note which makes the flavor taste very fresh and organic. There is a strong malt delivery to this ale, and I can see why the malts are trademarked Dare. These same malts taste somewhat like whole grain wheat bread with a touch of oats or sweet hay even though I have never eaten hay; the smell of it is how I imagine it to be.

pintbypint (2541) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2010
650ml brown bottle. Medium gold colour with a hint of orange. A little hazy. Short, compact white head, not much lace. Light malty aroma with a trace lemony citrus. Crisp malt flavour, some caramel, late grassy hops. Slight bitterness, light citrusy and herbal aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Good, but does not hold my interest for very long. Lacks a little depth in the hop department for me. Itís straightforward nature is both a blessing and a curse here.

brokensail (10607) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 30, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a fingerís worth of white foam. S: The nose is nose is primarily sweet and bready malt, but it is not all that powerful. There are also some mild spicy and floral hop aromas. T: A sweet and bready malt backbone defines this beer with plenty of piney and bitter hops with some light citrus. M: The body is medium with plentiful carbonation that is slightly creamy on the tongue. D: This isnít normally my favorite style, but this wasnít too bad for a blonde. I was pleasantly surprised by the bitterness.
