Sampled at San Carlos art and wine faire. A refreshing brew. Not a great brew but nice for a Holden ale. Well crafted.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is really nice with spicy noble hops and fresh grains. The flavor is the same. Good dry, crisp maltiness with some earthy, herbal and floral hops near the finish. Very clean and sessionable. One of my favorite blondes and a beer I would love to have regularly.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Tap and Handle Fort Collins. Pours a clear light yellow appearance with a white head. Fairly plain, a bit grassy, lemony aroma. Fairly dry, grassy, a bit grainy flavor. Easy drinking but boring.

Didnt like this beer. Not any real positive qualities. Just tasted cardboard, water and soggy socks. It was clean but a gross malt profile. Not good at all.

(Bottle) Pours golden with a white head. The aroma is of toasted malt, oranges, and flowers. Undertones of canned/tropical fruits and grass. The flavor is light sweet and light bitter. Tones of bread, mild citrus and some fruits. The mouthfeel is clean and medium carbonated. Light bodied.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Fountainhead. Pours a mostly clear pale yellow-gold with a white head. Nose is pretty muted. Hard time pulling any real aromatics. Some faint bread and faint hops, but nothing really pops out at me. On taste, again, pretty bland. A bit sweet and somewhat grainy, the hops are definitely in the background here. Just a very bland beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft on tap at Fountainhead (Chicago, IL). Pours a near transparent yellow golden pour with a moderate cakey bright white head. Aromas are crisp cereal grains, bread dough, and pale malts, crackers and light grassy hops. A light sessionable Golden Ale, highly drinkable with crisp cereal grains. Finish is dry, florals, grass, touches of hay, and dry grainy toast. Simple and drinkable. Light and crisp, really smooth and goes down easy. A noble Golden Ale that isn’t bland.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a very drinkable, and quite enjoyable beer, although nothing too incredibly special here. The aroma is wheaty, and grassy with a little citrusy hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, grains, grass, a tiny bit of lemons, then a hoppy finish. Well done beer.
