GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Pours slightly hazed golden yellow w/ moderate semi creamy froth. Faint aroma of malt. Medium nectar with mellow residual effers. Flavors are very mellow with malt at the front, beer fruit in the middle, and a nice bittering to finish. A good session brew.

WhiteSoxFan (152) - USA - SEP 15, 2006
Draft at Old Chicago on 8/9/06. Clear, golden yellow. 1 cm. creamy white head. Drops to a thin layer. Pretty big lacing. Aroma - Bready and sweet. Not too strong. Relatively high up front bitterness. Well balanced. Bready, malty, biscuity notes in the dry, crisp finish. good. Palate - light, good carb. Overall - Good blonde ale, very lagerlike. Good flavor - nice crisp, clean, and refreshing summer brew.

Ratman197 (11086) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Bottle poured a clear yellow with a small diminishing white head. Aromas of bread dough, honey and a bit of lemon. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, light malt and a faint bit of citrus with a crisp clean finish.

drywallman (342) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Swigged directly from the bottle, so appearance ratings could be off. Mild, light, some malt, a little sweetness. A very slight balancing hops. OK for a hot day quencher.

guzzler67 (1560) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Clear, light gold appearance with a small off-white head and little lacing. Generic, sweet malt aroma; nothing dstinct. Taste was weak, with a modest amount of sweetness. Slightly more flavorful than a macro.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Dark gold with a light head and some strings of lacing. Musky aroma that is slightly grassy and bitter. Husky flavors with a bit of wheat. Bitter notes with some hints of honey. Toast malt finish that is kind of bready.

dfedukovich (7) - USA - JUN 20, 2006 does not count
A crisp, light brew. Hints of honey in the aftertaste but not much. It is a nice summer ale and easy to drink but could be improved. Good, but I have had better.

RobKormal (36) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Bottle from World Market. Yellowy color with bubbly, white head. Aroma is sweet and frothy. Kind of watery, light, golden. Creative label, but otherwise, an uncreative beer.

DrnkMcDermott (2894) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Loose bottle from Sam’s Wines, Downers Grove. Definitely the American brewpub style of blond ale. Pours a big rocky head. Yellow body, kind of hazy with lots of floaties. Crisp and kind of lemony, with that bit of honey peeking through. Basic noble hop component. A good beginner’s craft beer. Date notch says it was bottled in October, so it’s held up OK.
