COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A crisp Blonde Ale. Golden in color, medium in body—she’s brewed with the help and the honey of Durango ’s Honeyville bees.

Tap: lemony grain aroma with a yellow look and a white head. Thin and watery. Ok. The low rating fits this.

UncleKorm (891) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Can poured a slightly cloudy clear yellow hue w/ large white foamy head slowly diminishing. Light bready aroma. Initial flavor is light citrus w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are lime, rice, grass, and crackers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barnoloid (260) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Can pour. A fair to middling blonde ale, no discernible qualities that make this one I would go for on the regular but overall it provides exactly the experience you would expect. Light bodied and somewhat watery with a sweet undertone. Not bad.

Danyel (1074) - Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Can. Pours clear, yellow with thick foamy white head. Aroma is citrus, dirty, skunky, cloves, spice. Taste light bodied, creamy, lots of spice. Overall, not too great.

I quite liked this, and I don’t usually drink Blonde Ales that often. Nice, crisp, flavorful, a decent dose of yeast and citrus. Above average. On draft by the pitcher at Daily Dose, Phoenix. Others enjoyed it as well.

Can to glass. Slight lemon in grassy aroma. Light pour. Taste like aroma with wheat lemon and some nice hops at end

slowrunner77 (6088) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
eh. i hate to say it but exactly what i’d expect from an average blonde ale. nothing that stands out. decent balance with some hay and sweet malt with a touch of bitterness, but lite and simple. dig the can, and the name."

gschrade (777) - Collinsville, USA - SEP 17, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste sweet, citrus, light. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thorongil2 (1392) - , Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
(tap) clear very pale yellow colour with a small white head; light floral aroma; light, inoffensive flavour - not much of it really

biirusaikou (811) - - AUG 18, 2014
Citrus hops, yeast. Light body, fruity malt, earthy pine hops, touch of honey, gentle bitter finish. Quite clean, smooth and enjoyable, kind of a hoppy Belgian blond.
