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

I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from McHughs. Nice and clear. Wispy white head with good lacing. Fruity, Ester, some diacethnyl. Flavour is sweet caramel malt. Malt forward and there is hint of honey. Easy drinking.

@ SBWF 2015: En ganska enkel blond ale utan större konstigheter - kanske lite söt eftersmak

seymour (1750) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Drank from a cold can at Maplewood Summer Concert in the Park series, thanks Jed! Basic easy-drinking golden/blond ale, malty and hoppy, nicely balanced, with a little ale yeast esters. I didn’t detect any honey, except just a mellow residual sweetness. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, nice alcoholic strength near the top of sessionable range. Decent, drinkable, approachable.

thebeertourist (5155) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2015
From can at Cafe Fiasco. Hazy, pale yellow. A bit spicy nose followed by hay in the mouth. Hints of earth. Uncomplicated, but drinkable.

I had some bombers from Ska back in 2007 and they weren’t very good at all to the point that it was reluctant to even try Ska again, but it’s hard to say no to it when here in Durango, CO and I enjoyed a couple pints of this from a growler fill... Aroma of pale malt, light honey, and floral hops; pale gold in color with a minor chill haze; flavor is much the same as the aroma with fruit pale malt, a dab of honey flavor and sweetness, and a balancing amount of floral hops; Medium light body and easily drinkable; fairly crisp and goes down very easy on a 92 degree day; I’m fairly pleased with this beer and would like to try more locally on draught...

Light beer with smooth taste and simple golden appearance. Good overall mix and this is a beer you can have all day.

Wittales (742) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Appearance was clear yellow gold with rocky diminishing white 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are simple pils malts with clean yeasts profile and very soft noble hops. Taste are malt forward with soft corn, pils sweetness then soft noble hops. The water profile is good with this style, clean yeasts. Palate was soft creamy CO2 with light body, then easy drinkable crispy finish. An solid example of a Blonde.

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