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.

Tap@Russian River. Had it under the name blonde ale, or at least thats what the girl behind the bar said it was. Pretty malty, grainy and lemony, pretty simple.

Tap @ the deli/brewpub in Guerneville. A light golden color with a wine like aroma. Dry, crisp, light and refreshing. Not much there but fine for the style.

(Draft: O'Brien's in San Diego, CA) I guess I expected more from this beer, and I only finished the pint so that the bartender would notice that I needed another beer; Very light flavored and boring beer and just not something I enjoyed or would buy again; Lightly malty, and not really much wheat flavor either, and definitely not malty enough to capture my attention; Minimal amount of hops bitterness, but the beer still seems in balance because the malt is so light; Light malty aroma; Pale golden in color and fully clear; White head settles to a sheen after a few minutes and leaves almost no lacing; Seems like a transitional beer intended for those just beginning to explore beyond Budweiser or Corona, but that's not my style of beer, so I don't care for this one

Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: What a wonderful wheat! Minimally hopped, nice aroma, sits nicely on the palate and goes down great. Almost tastes like a lager
