COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blonde in color, this mild ale is brewed with a blend of four malts to impart a subtle, malt bouquet. A smaller than normal hop addition is made in the beer to keep the flavor mild and clean.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2005
On tap at Hollingshead Deli: Pours a clear bright golden with a thin, fizzy white head. Aroma is faintly malty with a touch of citrus, wheat and European hops. Body starts semi-sweet and grainy turning more dry toward the smooth, but bland, bittersweet finish. An easy-drinking beer, but pretty mediocre.

Straw colored brew with a large white head. Light bodied and crisp. Very unassuming beer. Light use of hops along with an almost delicate wheat tartness makes this an easy drinker.

On draft, Hollingshead Deli, Nice golden colored ale (no shock here). Slightly sweet a bit malty, it’s very easy to drink

Heatwaves (54) - Santa Ana, California, USA - JUL 27, 2005
This blonde ale is not the brewery’s forte, but still is a very refreshing beer. As a golden, it was very typical to others in the category with nothing too dynamic about it. But it would be a great beer on a hot summer’s day. (That is, if you didn’t have access to any of their other selections.) Very pleasant, but can’t hold a candle to the Plinys, or any of the ’tions’.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Very fruity aroma with a hint of coconut. Suprisinly hoppy for a golden ale but it comes across nice. Taste has a bit of corriander.

bb (6715) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Draft. Amber golden color with a big white head. Not much aroma - some citus and grain. Citrus and an earthy flavor. Slightly dusty aftertaste.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 21, 2005
The aroma was grainy w/ a hint of citrus and flowers. The flavor was flowery w/ slight malty sweetness and citrus. The beer poured a golden yellow w/ no head and very slight lacing. The mouthfeel was creamy and light.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Pours golden hue, hence the name, with a small white head. Aromas of grass and wheat with a flavor that I couldn’t really hit. The flavor is off and the finish makes you cringe. I couldn’t even finish my pint it was that bad.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Pours with an amber gold body topped by a thin head with little lacing. The aroma and flavor are slightly sweet yet bitter and grassy with grainy notes and a nice hop character. The arom ais a little weak. Light to medium bodied and smooth.
