Pours hazy with little head retention. Very little smell: slightly floral, but only slightly noticeable. Taste is lightly sweet and very lightly bitter. Itís a very unassuming beer. Medium body, with lots of carbonation. Overall, a decent drinking beer. Itís not unoffensive, but itís not something Iíd search out. Itís pretty much the mark of: this is a beer. I can drink it. Itís not Miller, et al, but itís nothing great.

onceblind (3966) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Clear brilliant golden under a thin foamy white head. Nose was grassy and grainy with a big dose of biscuity pale gold malts. Smooth and grainy/cracker flavor with a quiet ale yeast ester and a firm noble/grassy hop tone throughout. A little dry and bitter, but only enough to balance. Not shabby.

Bookseeb (111) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Appearance has a light gold yellow color supporting a fair head leaving nill lace. Smell is grainy, malty and hop. Taste of the grain, lightly sweet in the malt and mild hop flavor. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Overall a nice easy drinking session ale.

Lagerboy (1189) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
Bomber. Unclear golden yellow, lasting white foamy head. Sweet-ish fruity malty grainy aroma and taste, some citrus, vague hint of floral hop. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. A better blonde and a nice quencher makes it: MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

Strykzone (4836) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bomber from Hayduke. A clear golden pour. It has more than average carbonation floating up. An off white head is 2 or 3 fingers. A light aroma that has some grain and pale malts. This doesnít have a lot of flavor, either. It is very drinkable and is on the sweet side. Perhaps a little lemon grass is tasted but not a lot. This was pleasant. A nice summer quaff.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy blond color with creamy head. Light aroma, a bit papery, and grassy/earthy. Dry but smooth mouthfeel; the flavor is strange, there is some corn and some earthy touch; correct bitterness, but not much hop quality.

maxwelldeux (3502) - Everett, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2012
This is meh. Pours a clear golden color with a thick frothy head that disappears quickly. Has an almost metallic smell to it. Almost no taste - like water. Not a lot to sink your teeth into on this beer.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Sampled on 5/12/2012. This blonde ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied blond/golden ale. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and slightly citrusy. Decent carbonation. This beer is a blonde ale; a touch sweet, mildly hoppy and somewhat bland tasting. It is what it is, itís not all that bad, but itís still a blond ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

cheap (3975) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2012
From a bommer. Clean and fairly sterile aroma, but hey; I just smoke a big see gar. First taste is sizzly fun, you can tell this is fairly low alky. Not much than 5% but it sure does hide the alky well. Clear lager looking thing. Quie friendly and easy going. Not sure if its because I worked so hard all day, but this stuff is scuttle but good. Yes, good sizzly fresh fun. Goes down pretty easy, not bad. Like-ability! Smooth even finsh. A good example of what a golden blonde ale or lager should be like. Forgettabout that big hoppy or impy stout thing. Sessionable.
